Beginner Yoga Monday & Wednesday

Body Edge now offers a Beginner’s Yoga class at 12 noon on Mondays and Wednesdays. For non-members of the gym class is $10 each or 10 classes for $70. Gym members receive a $20 discount.
This class will be for anyone who is curious about yoga, has never tried yoga or for those who just want to deepen an already existing practice. The classes will build upon on each other so it will be good to start now. 
 
The first several classes will be simply learning proper alignment and how it feels to simply move the body and the muscles without even trying, while connecting to one’s breath and quieting one’s mind. We will learn about the calming affects of the breath, stillness, meditation, and yoga philosophy. Over time, and with dedication, we will move in to the yoga postures (asana) and progress to a level of comfort that will allow the student to feel confident in any yoga class or develop a home practice.   – Pam Batchelor
Pam has been teaching yoga for 7 years and has her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Certification. She studied in India for 5 weeks. She believe that yoga is for everyone and that it is the one thing that will allow us to flow through life with awareness or our bodies and an element of natural healing that will serve to keep us flexible and free of pain due to not moving or not moving properly.
 
Yoga is not about the pose.
It’s not the alignment of 
toes or hips or shoulders.
It’s not about the form.
Yoga is an invitation to
explore, not a command
performance.  It speaks
the language of the soul.
In the flow of breath and 
motion, yoga coaxes us
from the confines of the
known, across the silent
threshold into vastness.
Yoga is the union of prayer
and movement, guided from
inside.  It is healing and the
joy of saying yes to life.
Breathe, relax and feel the
body receive its own truth.
The seed of freedom flowers
within each of us whenever
we are open to what’s real.
