Class Descriptions

Relax & Energize: Sundays 4 to 6pm
In this class, you will experience a mix of standing, seated and supine/prone poses that focus on flexibility, strength and relaxation. Expect to have some energy to do your Sunday evening chores yet sleep deeply Sunday night!

Rise & Shine: Tuesdays 10am to 12noon
This is our most challenging class, starting with 30 minutes of supine strengthening poses, followed by 1 hour of standing poses, and ending with 30 minutes restorative breathing/meditation poses. By the end of the class, you will shine like the noonday Sun! Be relaxed yet efficient for the rest of your day. Eat a light breakfast by 9am, please.

Relax & Restore: Thursdays 7 to 9pm
This is our most relaxing class all on your back! We start with 30 minutes of warm up poses before doing 45 minutes of deep tissue stretching. We end the class with 45 minutes of restorative breathing and meditation poses. By the end of the class, you should plan to go straight home to bed for a deeply restorative night of deep sleep. Eat a light dinner by 6pm, please.

Overall Therapeutic Approach

For 10 weeks, we will do Therapeutic Yoga for healing the feet and legs, hips, lower back/core strength, upper back, arms, neck and shoulders, as well as the mind and emotions. Each topic will be addressed for 2 weeks at a time, with each topic building on the last for a whole person/whole body, integrated approach.

The Yoga asana-s (Yoga postures) are breath coordinated with movement & alignment-based, with breathing, chanting, visualization, and restorative practices integrated into all classes.

You will be asked to provide a self-assessment and registration form before the series begins each term to clarify individual therapeutic needs (see attached document). Maggie will track changes and progress throughout the term. See Group Therapeutic Yoga.

You are also encouraged to work with Maggie privately on Fridays & Saturdays, to develop a home practice to deepen your experience. See Private Yoga Therapy Sessions.
