Yoga 1: Fridays: 8:30 – 9:30am

Yoga 1 is suitable for most students, whether new to the exploration of yoga, would like to return to the fundamentals of yoga or recognize the benefits of a moderately paced experience. Class includes basic pose alignment, and a variety of breathing, relaxation and meditation practices. An appreciation for the holistic science of Yoga, and how to incorporate it into our daily lives and everyday actions, is a component of every class.

Sue Bielski
Sue came to yoga in her late 30s seeking low-impact physical exercise, but she soon found herself drawn to exploring the deeper aspects of the practice. She began teaching regularly shortly before completing her 200-hour yoga teacher certification (at YogaLife Institute of NH) in 2015. She regularly teaches 4 – 6 classes a week in various Seacoast venues. The experience of yoga, as Sue imagines it, includes developing new perspectives, experimenting with the unfamiliar, opening up beneficial paths of communication, and cultivating light-heartedness as one moves through life. Sue has taught yoga at all levels to students ranging in age from adolescents to nonagenarians.

Marsha Carr: Tai Chi Yang 24 Short Form & Tai Chi for Health & Balance

Tai Chi Yang 24 Short Form: traditional beginning form for first time students that improves balance, coordination, mindfulness and breath work. The form was the result of an effort by the Chinese Sports Committee, which, in 1956, brought together four Tai Chi teachers to create a simplified form of Tai Chi as exercise for the masses.

Caveat: This is a progressive movement class, a new movement will be taught in most classes. Students are encouraged not to miss class due to the number of steps to learn the form. The whole form cannot be learned in 6 weeks, therefore subsequent class offerings may be provided.

Yin Yoga Holistic Ocean

Yin Yoga Series 2017 Mondays: 9:30 – 10:30am

Yin Yoga Series 2017: A series of five classes: Mondays 10/23/2017 - 11/20/17
Time: 9:30am - 10:30am
Cost: $45.00 Total for the five classes

Yin yoga is a practice that allows us to slow down and find release within deeper stretches. This style of yoga requires the muscles to relax in order for the connective tissue-- ligaments, bones and the fascial network in our body to be deeply stretched. This yoga complements activities like running, hiking, and other forms of exercise so that you can maintain good health and mobility in the joints. Postures are held for longer periods of time (2-5 minutes) and are done seated or supine using props for support. A short relaxing rest will complete the practice. Join Michelle Couture, ERYT200 for a 5 week series where you will find significant release in the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and spine.

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing art. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. The session is performed by a Reiki Practitioner (RP or RMT) using specific Reiki hand positions. During a Reiki session, the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table or seated in a chair. It is practiced worldwide and used in many wellness settings as well as in private practice.

Benefits of Reiki
The benefits of Reiki include peace and clarity of mind, stress reduction and relaxation – which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities (immune system); it aids in better sleep and improves and maintains health.
