CLASSES & EVENTS
As we move into Phase 4 of the Governer's pandemic plan, I am offering a few short practices on YouTube, a weekly live class and monthly restorative yoga. If you need any support during this time, please reach out using our contact information. I'm sharing a deep grounding hug during this unsettling time.
All In Person Classes Currently on Hold
WEEKLY VIRTUAL YANG YOGA @ TYC
Every Tuesday Morning August 4, 11, 18, 25
7:00 to 8:00AM CT Live Online
$17.00 per class (monthly passes available)
Focusing on core strength and length, in this basic Yang Yoga class, we start by setting “inner alignment” through the breath. Then move to an active, yet meditative flow. Class will end with a brief intro to basic Yin Yoga (long held floor poses). All levels welcome.
Pay through The Yoga Centre (in Oak Park) Mind Body platform. The link to enter the class on Zoom is below.
WEEKLY VIRTUAL MULTI-LEVEL
CHAIR YOGA @ TYC
This class is taking a break! Summer attendance was low. So we we will try again in the fall! Let me know if there is a better day and time fore you!
Using a chair for stability, mobility and depth, this one hour class is for all levels. I will offer 2-3 versions of most poses to allow you to travel to the dept of your comfort. For beginners will find accessibility and build confidence. Seasonned practitioners will find a new depth to many poses. Come use this practice to create a deeper understanding of your awareness with the body, mind and breath.
VIRTUAL RESTORATIVE AROMA YOGA
Sunday, August 9
9:00AM to 10:15AM CT Live Online
Come learn the art of stillness while sharing a restorative yoga practice filled with wisdom and space for inspiration. We will create relaxation and healing at the deepest cellular levels. Using natural scents from mother earth, learn the art of revitalization through breath and supported hatha yoga postures. In this practice, we feature a different essential oil each month while incorporating various Aroma Point Therapy treatments.
Again this month we share a virtual practice online. We continue our journey with what I feel are the go-to essential oils that everyone should have available. We will add ravintsara to the list just below blue tansy, black spruce, helichrysum and lavender. If you need some help acquiring this month's essential oil, just click here.
Have some props available: a chair, a bolster (or couch cushion), strap (or a man's tie), and a few blankets (or bath towels).
Making Yoga Accessible for Everyone!
Meg is available to teach in most any setting.
(Public/ private pools and jacuzzis for workshops or periodic classes.)
Aqua Yoga incorporates the therapeutic environment of water with the ancient practices of yoga. Stretching, gentle movement, yoga postures, breathing exercises, and meditation increase strength, mobility, balance and flexibility while decreasing joint pain, stress and fatigue. The natural buoyancy of the water and the water pressure help to support the body in all directions making this class accessible for everyone.
Aqua Yoga is beneficial for all body types and abilities including students who are stroke and cancer survivors, are pregnant, have arthritis, are wheel-chair or walker-bound, have muscle and/or joint limitations, are overweight and are part of the senior adult community.
