This class will be held virtually on Friday, October 7.
In this class taught by Beth Lawrence, we will practice a set of poses, both seated and standing using the chair as a prop, that will promote strength, flexibility, and balance physically while encouraging relaxation and meditation mentally. Mats are not necessary.
Beth has been practicing yoga for 20 years and teaching in the DC area for 15. Her classes draw from traditional yoga practices, primarily Sivananda Yoga and Integral Yoga. She has earned her 500 RYT certification from the Yoga Alliance and has recently completed a program in Yoga Therapy. Beth teaches a gentle, traditional yoga practice which promotes mental and physical health and well being. Her class draws from Sivananda and Integral Yoga practices; beginning with a full body warm up, moving into a prescribed series of poses designed to keep the body strong and flexible while encouraging mental calmness and clarity, and ending with a deep final relaxation.
