What is a session class?

Many classes at the Yoga Path are taught in “sessions”. This is like a semester of school. The format allows for a continuity of instruction, so poses and practices can be introduced, developed, and refined over a period of time as with most learning. So students enroll to attend a weekly class. (Some choose to come more often.) In the event a student is unable to attend their regular weekly class, making up that class time during the session is recommended and encouraged.
“Drop-ins” students may come to any “session” class, keeping in mind they may not get the full benefit of continuous instruction. There are also several purely “Drop-in” classes available during the week. See schedule for details.

“Foundations” class fees are
$12 for 1 class\
$44  for 4 class punch card \
$80 for 8 class punch card
Punch cards expire 60 days after purchase

Class Descriptions

Beginning  Level 1 Classes: Recommended for students new to yoga. This class introduces basic poses, principles of correct alignment and posture, yoga philosophy, relaxation, and breath awareness. Essential fundamental yoga concepts, terms, and traditions will be touched on that will greatly aid students in developing a clear understanding as the intent and practice of Yoga.

 

Level 2 Classes: For students with a year or more of experience in practice of asana along with a rudimentary understanding of the philosophy of yoga.

 

Level 3: For continuing students with three or more years experience in yoga and have established a personal practice outside of class in postures, breathing, and sitting.

 

Foundations: For individuals who are new to yoga or those wishing to reconnect with the fundamentals of practice and cultivate awareness. Postures are done at a slow and steady pace with a focus on alignment and mindful movement. Designed to maintain or gently increase strength, flexibility, and balance, the class includes centering, postures (asanas), breath awareness, and relaxation.

 

Therapeutic Yoga:  In this class you will learn how to foster and practice healthy movement, breath, and stillness.  As you gain more freedom and stability in your body and mind, tension and pain decrease, and you feel more at ease. Discussions are centered on how our exploration of yoga poses and philosophy carries over into our daily lives.  This class is for those who are new to yoga, those experiencing tension and pain, and for those who want to deepen their awareness. Class size is small and registration is by session only (no drop-ins) to allow for the building of skills.
