Traditional Hatha Yoga which literally means “union” is a discipline which stresses mastery over the body as a way of attaining mastery over the wandering tendencies of the mind. The physical postures, known as asana, bring a sense of balance throughout the body so the mind can more easily withdraw from external influences.
The focus of this All Levels class will be to prepare the body, mind and spirit for the miraculous occasion of bringing another human into this world. Julie has had extensive training as well as experience in pelvic floor exercises and brings a deep understanding of the importance of strengthening the pelvic floor before, during and after pregnancy. Calming breathing practices will also be taught to support each woman during and after this amazing time in her life. Calm moms=calm babies! When pregnant, we not only eat for two but we also practice yoga for two! What effects Mom also effects her baby and the earlier we begin our yoga practice, the better our lives will be. Start those little ones early~in utero! This class is appropriate for women in any stage of pregnancy.
Yoga for Kids is an educationally based yoga program where the children will learn integrity, honesty, compassion, and self-awareness. The class structure brings the children together by age groups and incorporates reading, language, math, environmental studies and social studies with movement. While the yoga poses are important, they do become secondary, as we don’t expect 3 to 5 year olds to stand in a pose for 2 minutes. They may not even want to stay on their mat that long! What is most important is that the children learn in a fun and creative way. This class is appropriate for ages 3-10.
The past two years has made it glaringly obvious that we need to focus on our wellness. Wellness is not about just being physically fit; it is also about our emotional and psychological states. Keeping the three in balance is challenging in GOOD times so, if we do not already have a regular routine, getting started in the midst of chaos might seem impossible. But, it does not have to be when we start with the approach of balancing our efforts with ease. This is the approach that I take with my new program, Now Is The Time For Wellness. Yogic principals are the foundation of the program but I also incorporate traditional exercise and meditation for an experience that is truly personalized and tailored to each individual students needs. What time is it? Now Is The Time For Wellness!
Think of this program as a combination of yoga class, personal training and yoga life coaching, all in one! I offer in-person as well as Zoom classes for those who are out of state or prefer that format. We can schedule the time in 30 minute, 60 minute or 75 minute sessions, as many times a week that suits the student’s needs. Pricing is determined by the amount of time we work together.
