Program Description

Event Details

Join Sarah Nelsen for a yoga class focused on gentle strength and stretching as well as calming the nervous system. We will use gentle movement, breath and guided relaxation to relieve tension and stress. Class will include poses on the floor, seated, and standing and adaptations will be given to make class as accessible as possible. 

The fourth Tuesday of each month will focus on a mix of Restorative, Yin, and Nidra Yoga. These practices focus on floor based stretching, meditation and relaxation.

To join this online program, you will need a computer, tablet or phone with a camera and microphone. The link to join the event will be emailed to registrants. A phone number will be included to allow you to use a phone as speaker/microphone, if necessary.

Reclined poses could be done on the floor or a bed; seated poses could be done on the floor or in a chair; standing poses could use the wall or a chair for support.  

Props you may want to have on hand include: a blanket, a pillow, a strap and a chair.
