This class was designed to enhance energy flow, strength and flexibility for health and longevity. It is based on studies of several eastern disciplines and has students feeling rejuvenated and centered. A wonderful way to let go of the week and start a great weekend!
The first half of the class focuses on energy flow, getting your body warmed up with chi-kung and tai-chi, and getting centered with postural poses. Then the second half will focus on one of six different yoga routines. Each of these classes will provide a total-body workout for strength, and will provide a great variety of flexibility work. The poses are taught so that anyone from beginner to advanced can participate. It is slow-paced with plenty of time in each pose. There is an emphasis on breathing and relaxation as well. Bring a health question as well to be answered by Ruben.
“Five years ago, I was faced with the possibility of back surgery, with a loss of my job and not being able to participate in the activities I love. This class has provided me with the freedom to continue my normal activities and even take on more strenuous activities. If I didn’t attend, I wouldn’t be able to jog, snowboard or bike!” – Matt B.
