(Pronounced:"slow ga" Definition: Yogachelan's slow, gentle yoga class)
Tuesday and Thursday at 6:15 PM
This yoga is for everyone. Please join us.
Gentle Yoga or Sloga is one of our most popular classes. This practice is designed for the beginner to intermediate to learn or review the foundation moves, yet will move slowly and gently for those who may be working with an injury, illness, pregnancy, arthritis, back concerns, etc. Maybe you just want a relaxing, slower moving class to enhance your other yoga practice, this is the practice for you.
These classes will spend a little more time on the breath phase and the relaxation phase of the practice. Modifications will be added for those with different needs making this a very comfortable environment. Gentle moves for those delicate wrist, shoulder, knee, and hip joints.
This practice is taught by Lynda: RYT, BS Kinesiology, BS Clinical Psychology, 2 Yrs Nursing.
From the doctor on Back Pain.
Doctors now realize that lying around is actually counterproductive, leading to a decrease in conditioning and an increase in pain. The longer you stay in bed the more muscle mass you lose (up to 3 percent per day) and the resulting loss of...
strength can interfere with your rehabilitation, and force you to overwork other muscles to compensate. Rather than babying a back injury, doctors now recommend people start gentle activities the first day.
