Gentle Modified Yoga

with Paula Carnegie Fehr: Tuesday & Thursday 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.

Yoga is for everyone, yet most classes require the ability to get easily up and down to the floor, to be on hands and knees, to put oneself in inverted positions and to sit or stand for lengthy periods of time. Gentle Modified Yoga is a practice that has developed over several years to help people explore yoga without the strong physical demands of regular classes. There is a concerted emphasis on self-awareness and learning to pay attention to the body and its signals. The main components of this class involve smaller joint movements, gentle postures using props where required, effective breathing, relaxation and self-observation. It can benefit anyone, but it tends to draw seniors and people with specialized needs or those who may be living with/recovering from illness and injury. Props, including chairs, belts, and bolsters, are integral components used to assist students to develop their abilities.

Class numbers are kept small to help everyone find their comfort in the different poses. In some ways, this class could be considered advanced yoga because of the attention paid to the smallest of sensations – and many people are challenged to look so deeply into themselves. However, Gentle Modified Yoga is just that: gentle and modified. Anyone can do it.
