Yoga

YOGA SUMMER SESSION

Our Summer program begins Saturday, July 8 and runs until Saturday, August 26 and includes the following classes:

Yoga Summer Calendar

Monday, 5:00-6:15 p.m. Yoga for Physical Fitness **
Monday, 6:30-7:45 p.m. Kripalu Yoga for All Levels
Wednesday, 6:30-7:30 a.m. Sunrise Yoga for All Levels

Thursday, 6:30-7:45 p.m. Gentle/Moderate Kripalu Yoga
Saturday, 8:30-9:45 a.m. Kripalu Yoga for All Levels

There are no classes on Saturday, July 22; Monday, July 24 or Saturday, August 5 through Saturday, August 12.

Gentle/Moderate Kripalu Yoga is for those who enjoy building postures from the ground up.  Poses will be explored with guidance and modifications. Students use postures, breath-work, and relaxation to quiet the mind, stretch and tone the body, and move the inner self towards stillness.

Kripalu Yoga for All Levels includes gentle warm-ups and leads to asana, in which students move from posture to posture in a flow-like sequence.

Yoga for Physical Fitness ** is designed for experienced yoga students. Stability balls, dumbbells and low-impact cardio exercises are used in conjunction with traditional poses to fatigue the muscles and facilitate deeper stretching and toning.

Fees per person are: 5 classes $45; 6 classes $50; 8 classes $65; 10 classes $80; 12+ classes $90. 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. Classes can be attended on a walk-in basis for $10.

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!

Direct questions to Rhonda Woodward, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, (887-8204/rhondawoodward@comcast.net) or to Corinna Reishus, Director of Chester Recreation (887-5773). Sign up online at chesternh.org (find Recreation Commission page, then follow the Blue Sombrero link.) Classes take place in the Activities Room of the “pink” building to the right of the Chester Police Department on Chester Street.
