Hatha Yoga 1-2
Level 1-2 Mixed Level classes are geared to students in normal health who are still working to learn fundamental postures as well as those who have more experience and are seeking to expand, refine and develop their yoga practice at more subtle levels. Sun Salutations and series of flowing poses are incorporated at this level. All classes end with deep relaxation.
Gentle Level is ideal for seniors, pregnant women, and students recovering from illness, injury or surgery. Gentle classes are also great for anyone who needs a little rest and quiet from the busy pace of life. Gentle Yoga has a slower pace and the teachers give more instruction on how to use props such as chairs, the wall, blocks, blankets, bolsters for support. Gentle Yoga introduces fundamental Hatha Yoga postures while ensuring that students have time to understand the instructions, and get the props needed to practice the pose to their capacity. This class may include accupressure yoga, chakra yoga visualizations, pranayama and mudras. Class ends in deep relaxation. Although this class is suited to students needing assistance, students with pronounced physical limitations are requested to phone us first about their restrictions before coming to class. Phone Laura Spaulding at the main office during business hours at 502-585-9642. Leave a message if she is out and she will return your call.
Yoga for Pregnancy & Childbirth: This is more than just a prenatal yoga class. It is a community of expectant moms sharing their journey to motherhood. We have fun!

Practicing prenatal yoga can alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy and help your body prepare for the WORK of birthing. Creating balance and connecting mind and body as your pregnant body is constantly changing is a challenge. Yoga is an amazing tool to help in this journey. All expectant mamas are welcome!
Yoga Flow 2
Continuing level 2 classes are for students who are well-established in a yoga practice, know the fundamental postures, know how to make modifications for their level with and without props, and can self-correct in the postures.

Students at this level should be able to hold Caturanga Dandasana (plank). More complicated backbends, twists and arm balances are taught at this level. Yoga Sutra readings, pranayama and meditation are also incorporated at this level. All classes end with deep relaxation.

Patanjali's work has been the subject of numerous scholarly commentaries. Although it fell into obscurity for several centuries it was resurrected by Western Sanskrit scholars in the 19th century. Today it is widely studied as one of the earliest and most authoritative texts of yoga. Study of the Yoga Sutras is recommended in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar systems. This class will chant, read and discuss the meaning of the Sutras and how they are relevant and helpful for one's own yoga practice. No previous knowledge of the Yoga Sutras is needed for the class.

Letting Go Yoga Nidra with Kim Eisner
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 at 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm. You are what your deep driving desire is. As is your desire, so is your will. As is your will, so is your thought. As is your thought, so is your word. As is your word, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny. The word "nidra" means sleep, but this is not ordinary sleep. This is yogic sleep, entering a profound state of relaxation in which you are able to descend into the deepest levels of consciousness and unlock your inner strengths. Change negative habits and thoughts into positive, life-affirming behaviors and transform your life. Tap into your own creative potential and discover how to meet life's challenges with enthusiasm and courage. Yoga Nidra holds the key. This class is our annual class, held near Halloween each year, on the theme of Death - the Final Definitive Journey. Many past participants have found this yoga nidra to be a powerful and life-changing spiritual experience. This class is a one-hour guided relaxation. No yoga experience is needed. The class begins with a soothing series of easy yoga postures that prepare the body for deep relaxation. We recommend you bring an ordinary bed pillow and a blanket or something warm to cover with during relaxation. Ware loose or stretchy clothes appropriate for yoga practice
