Chester Yoga Classes

.

Welcome! 

Whether you’ve come to lengthen your hamstrings or reduce your stress, quiet your mind or rev up your heart rate, “Congratulations!” for making this commitment to your self.

Why Yoga?

Engaging your body in postures with concerted awareness brings your mind into the present.  This, in and of itself, facilitates quiet and calm.  As you become more finely attuned to where you hold your body in space, how you respond to your physical edge, where and why you hold tension, you will, over time, become more aware of your physical and emotional responses not just in the studio, but in various situations outside the studio.  "Awareness" is the tool that empowers you to act by choice rather than by habit or reflex.  As you discover new movements, you develop more strength and range of motion not just in your body, but in your life as well.

What do I wear?

            Wear clothing that allows you to move freely.  Wear a shirt that “stays put” during inversions.  Dress in layers, as your body temperature will greatly increase with certain postures and greatly decrease during the relaxation phase.

When do I arrive?

            You are welcome to arrive 10 minutes before the start of your class.  Feel free to use this period to begin your decompression: lie down on your mat, sit quietly with eyes open or closed, engage in some preliminary stretching.

What do I bring?

·         The attached intake sheet, completed.  (This is to help ensure your safety in postures. Information will be kept strictly confidential.)

·         A water bottle.

·         You do not need a yoga mat, but you are welcome to bring one.

What do I leave behind?

·         Noisemakers: Please leave cell phones, beeping watches or pagers at home or in your car.

·         Scents: Our practice includes deep breathing (pranayama).  Please refrain from wearing perfume or scented body lotions. 

·         Shoes:  Please leave these outside the door to the room.

·         Ego:  Yoga is non-competitive, so please come not to perfect your postures, but to relax and rejuvenate!
