Yoga in the Park (Spring 2019)

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Saturday, repeating until May 4, 2019

$5

This April we will be hosting a Yoga in the Park series. This event will be taught by Kelly Liddell. She has multiple years of experience both as a student and teacher of Yoga. Her focus is on a mindful, slow paced form called Vinyasa yoga.

Each class will focus on 3 objectives: to relax and to get grounded; to exercise and build strength; to stretch and improve flexibility. These goals are met through proper bodily alignment and by connecting the movement of the body with the natural flow of the breath.

The template for each class will involve the following elements:

  1. A seated or reclined breathing and mindfulness practice
  2. Warm up, seated or reclined stretches and core and spine strengthening
  3. Traditional Vinyasa-style flow (moving through a series of beginner/intermediate poses in slow to moderately paced and mindful way)
  4. Balance work (beginner level)
  5. Cooling stretches, either seated or reclined
  6. A final moment to restore and rest that ends the class where it began.

Each class will also have a different focus from the preceding and succeeding one to give a feel of growth and variety. So each class you sign up for will be a totally different experience as previous.

The classes will be hosted on the lawn in front of the Irvinton House at Irvine-McDowell Park. Classes will start Sunday, April 14th and occur each Saturday April 20th through May 4th. The classes will be in the morning at 9 a.m. and last for one hour. All classes will be 18+, or 11+ with adult supervision.

Mats will NOT be provided. All students are expected to provide their own yoga mat or beach towel to exercise on. The class will be conducted outside on a lawn so please plan accordingly.

The price is $5 per class. To register please download the attached registration form below
