Chester Yoga New Spring Session

Click on the link below: 

Spring II 2016 Yoga Calendar (1)

Saturday, May 7, and Monday, June 20, the following classes are offered:

Monday, 5:15-6:30 p.m. Yoga for Physical Fitness (experienced students)

Monday, 6:45-8 p.m. Kripalu Yoga (gentle/moderate)

Thursday, 6:30-7:45 p.m. Kripalu Yoga (gentle/moderate)

Saturday, 8:30-9:45 a.m. Kripalu Yoga (gentle/moderate)

This seven-week session runs from Saturday, May 7, through Monday, June 20. A total of 28 classes is offered over 6 Mondays/1 Tuesday, 7 Thursdays, and 7 Saturdays. In celebration of Memorial Day Weekend, there is no class on Saturday, May 28, or Monday, May 30. There is no class on June 13 (Pinkerton Academy’s Graduation); that evening’s classes will instead be held on Tuesday, June 14.

Fees per person are: 7 classes $60; 10 classes $80; 14 classes $90; 17-21 classes $105. Since registration is based on the number of classes one is interested in attending (rather than a particular day/time), classes can be attended any given day. Missed classes cannot be carried over into the next session. After filling out a waiver, students can attend classes on a walk-in basis for $10.

“Gentle/Moderate” classes are geared for students of all levels. Guidance is provided in building postures from the ground up; vinyasa (flow) is also offered. In all classes, students use postures, breathwork, and relaxation to quiet the mind, tone the body, and move the inner self towards stillness. Modifications of poses are offered to make the postures accessible to all.

“Yoga for Physical Fitness” is for experienced yoga students interested in focusing on strength and toning. Traditional yoga poses are practiced with weights, stability balls, and low-impact cardiovascular movements. Unlike many fitness classes, students will stretch deeply the same muscle groups that were tightened throughout class. **Students should bring small dumbbells (3-5 lb) to class.

DISCOUNTS: If more than one member of the same household registers for a session, a 20% discount off the combined registration payment applies! Also, many students find that participation in a yoga program is reimbursed by their health insurance companies; check out YOUR policy to see if this applies!

Feel free to direct questions to Rhonda Woodward, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher (887-8204/ Questions can also be directed to Sharon DeLuca, Director of Chester Recreation (887-5773/

Classes take place in the “pink” building to the right of the Chester Police Department on Chester Street. The Activities Room is the second room on the right.
