Yoga for Men Only - Remotely

Instructor: Wendy Davis

Mondays and Wednesdays 5:15 pm – 6:00 pm

September 21st – December 16th

$40/$20 (60+)

Materials:  Mat, bolster, block or strap. The main drawback of holding the class online is the lack of props.  I realize you probably don't have a yoga bolster and other items we use in the studio, but you can get creative and find substitutes for our commonly used tools.  Here are some possibilities:

Bolster = supportive pillow or two soft pillows together to create better support

Block = larger size book with a towel over it to make it softer
Strap = necktie, rope, a large towel that can be folded
Mat = blanket, large towel, quilt

Although we can all suffer from poor flexibility in some areas, men tend to experience tightness in the lower back, hamstrings and chest.  This class will address those areas and others men find especially challenging.  The class will consist of basic poses making it available to beginners as well as advanced practitioners.  

Class will be held via Zoom.  Please download the Zoom program and familiarize yourself with it.  Make sure you have an internet connection that will work before registering for the class.  You can find the Zoom (free) download here:  https://zoom.us/
