Our Beginners Yoga class teaches you a gentle yoga called Upa Yoga. Upa Yoga relaxes tension, and it’s good for your joints. It rejuvenates the body after a period of inactivity or long travel. This is the first class we give to people looking for physical therapy. If you want yoga for pain or physical therapy, this practice is more easily modified to fit your needs. You learn an Upa Yoga sequence that you can continue on your own at home. Additional dates are June 17-18, July 15-16. Regsiter here.
