This ongoing class introduces the fundamental principals of posture and breath. The emphasis is on standing, seated and restorative postures which build strength, stamina and flexibility. Classes include beginning seated and forward bending postures and passive supported poses for deep relaxation.

Master Classes with William Prottengeier

Advanced Yoga Training

This series is for dedicated long-time practitioners of yoga, who wish to refine and reenergize their practice. As students of Yoga, ongoing study or “Svadhyaya” is essential to our understanding of the practice.

These classes will provide the foundation for a comprehensive and effective personal practice. Each class examines a specific type of posture, structural mechanics of poses, use of props to adapt poses for individual needs, therapeutic adaptations, and integration of the breath into the practice.

There will also be training in Mindfulness Meditation, learning how to integrate our sitting practice with our asana practice.

Ambulatory Adaptive Yoga

This slower-paced class guides students through introductory standing, seated and floor postures. Extra time is spent on positions and using props to ensure a safe and peaceful approach to the asana practice. Poses are adapted to meet the needs of individual students, so everyone can practice in a restorative and supportive environment.

This class is for individuals living with impaired mobility or balance due to physical disability. Other individuals who feel they may be limited from participating in a traditional yoga class are also welcome in this class.

Mind Body Solutions subsidizes the cost of classes for students living with disabiility.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we subsidize the cost of adaptive classes and individual instruction for those living with mobility disabilities.
