Gentle Yoga – New Spring Session added on Thursdays

Did you miss registering for the WSCC class that meets on Tuesdays because it filled up too fast? Or are you signed up for Tuesdays and you want to practice Gentle Yoga with me twice a week? Or maybe you’re new to my classes and you’d like to try something different. Good news! I’m adding a second opportunity to practice Gentle Yoga during the spring session.

Gentle Yoga will meet for 8 weeks on Thursdays from 9:00am-10:00am in Fellowship Hall at Wallingford Presbyterian Church starting on March 7th. There are several ways you can sign up – get all 8 sessions for $80, get 4 sessions for $45, or drop in for one session for $15. You decide which Thursdays work for you. If you were in the Winter Gentle Session, and you would have attended our last date, the price is $70 (includes make up day.)

This venue is exceptional for its beautiful Fellowship Hall with hardwood floors and stained glass windows, and its feeling of sanctuary for all kinds. You’ll find an age range from twenties and thirties all the way into the eighties! “Gentle” refers to an attitude of taking exquisite care of ourselves in each moment throughout the class. 

We connect the breath with movement during accessible yoga sequences designed to create balance between mind, body, and spirit. We’ll explore a variety of reclining, seated and standing postures (asana) and the transitions between those poses, adapted to your level. In addition, we’ll learn more about the limbs of yoga beyond asana or the physical postures, such as meditation (dhyana) and breath-work (pranayama.) Props like blocks and straps are sometimes used to help safely attain or deepen a pose. Blocks and straps are provided. Class size limited to 35.

“I have been a grateful student in Ann’s yoga classes for a couple of years. As an older yoga practitioner who has worked with other teachers in the past, I have especially appreciated her non-judgmental and very encouraging approach. Her classes offer increasing challenges for students to stretch their bodies and their repertoire of yoga poses, but always in a compassionate, supportive, and peaceful atmosphere. In addition, her subtle humor and intention to connect personally with her students makes practicing yoga just plain fun. As Ann expands her teaching opportunities, I hope to follow her for as long as I can move my body!” -Judy S.

Registration Now Open for Spring Yoga and Balance Classes through WSCC

Spring registration is now open for Wallingford Swarthmore Community Classes. Each of the classes I’m teaching spans eight weeks, starting in the first week of March, and since classes typically fill up fast and often have waiting lists, try to secure your spot.

WSCC is a non-profit organization that provides a range of adult classes at a low cost in community venues. I feel lucky to be one of their teachers in the place where I grew up, where most of my family still lives, and where I do most of my teaching. I have met some extraordinary souls (some of whom I already knew, or went to high school with their kids!) and each venue brings its own set of community-minded folks to the mix.

Gentle Yoga meets on Tuesdays at 9:00am at the Wallingford Presbyterian Church, beginning on March 5th through April 23rd. This venue is exceptional for its beautiful Fellowship Hall with hardwood floors and stained glass windows, and its feeling of sanctuary for all kinds. Our largest class, you’ll find an age range from twenties and thirties all the way into the eighties! The sessions are accessible for all levels, and blocks and straps are provided to help deepen and achieve poses. “Gentle” refers to an attitude of taking exquisite care of ourselves in each moment throughout the class. Sign up through the WSCC website: https://www.wscclasses.org/events/39-gentle-yoga/ CLASS IS NOW FULL / PUT YOUR NAME ON THE WAITING LIST

Balance 101 meets on Thursdays at 1:00pm at Swarthmore United Methodist Church, beginning on March 7th through April 25th. At SUMC, our carpeted room is stocked with comfortable straight-backed chairs and a quiet environment for us to explore the challenges of balance. Growing older does not have to mean a loss in balance! This class will deepen our understanding of the intricate balance system and our own personal balance point, which will be measured throughout the eight weeks. Exercises are aimed at bringing awareness to posture, breathing, as well as strengthening and stretching muscles used for balance. You’ll try new seated stretching to incorporate into your everyday routine, the flamingo pose (standing on one leg,) which if practiced regularly, is said to reduce the risk of falling! We’ll even tackle hand-eye coordination with ball-handling, and when the time is right, walk the “balance beam.” Sign up through the WSCC website: https://www.wscclasses.org/events/40-balance-101/

Hatha Yoga meets on Thursdays at 6:30pm at Strath Haven High School, beginning on March 7th through May 2nd, with no class on April 18th. This class meets on the 4th floor in an open hallway, and the temperatures run warm so dress in layers that allow you to breathe. SHHS is my alma mater, many moons ago, so I feel wonderfully blessed to return to the halls I once walked as a rebellious teenager. Not so much has really changed, you’ll find, and we will explore a range of postures that challenge our bodies and minds. Whatever your age or level of fitness, you’re welcome to join this accessible yoga class with a real group spirit. Come practice with strangers and leave as friends!
