YOGA CLASSES FOR NEW MOMS AND UP
We are thrilled to announce a brand new collaboration between Mother's Embrace Yoga and Phoenix Yoga from Seymour, which will bring three new yoga classes to Shelton! These classes are geared towards moms who have received clearance to return to all physical activities after baby. Offered by Phoenix Matosian, here are the new options:
** Flow and Form Yoga - This class offers a moderate Vinyasa flow style class. It is open to all levels of practitioners but be aware that this is a challenging class! Students will be encouraged to let go of expectations and explore new ways of moving in and out of poses, while holding a strong foundation of alignment. - THIS CLASS WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, MAY 7 AND WILL BE HELD EVERY MONDAY FROM 9:30-10:30 AM AND EVERY FRIDAY FROM 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
** Flow and Yin Yoga - This class includes a 40 minute Vinyasa Flow followed by 20 minutes of Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga is a cooling practice that focuses on moving energy (chi) through the energy centers (meridians) of the body to allow us to deepen into poses. The result if a feeling of being balanced and refreshed! THIS CLASS WILL BEGIN ON TUESDAY, MAY 8 AND BE HELD EVERY TUESDAY FROM 6-7 PM.
NOTE - Phoenix will offer an introductory class on Saturday, April 14 at 9 am at Mother's Embrace. This is a free class however we ask for diaper donations of any size. The diapers collected will be distributed to needy families in the community.
