Gentle Yoga

Saturdays, 10:30am—11:30am, in the Sanctuary.

yogaGentle Yoga is a form of physical and spiritual practice designed for beginning students and anyone who continues to get older every year. It focuses on three aspects of the body-flexibility (reaching and bending), core strength (spine and tummy) and balance (to prevent falls). It also emphasizes relaxation and proper breathing. All this in just one hour a week (what you do the rest of the week is up to you).

Gentle Yoga is led by Annie Foerster. Annie has been a yoga student for forty-two years and an instructor for thirty-seven years. She specializes in helping older students, young people and just about everyone in between.

yogaYou’ll need a yoga mat, clothes that will bend with you and a willingness to try. If you have trouble getting down on the floor (or up, once you’re down), you can do many of the postures from a chair. Here’s the thing about yoga—the benefits accrue in the trying, not in the achieving. Once you can do a posture, a good yoga teacher will make it harder for you by adding a new twist. So if you aren’t trim and buff like the pictures in the yoga magazines, Gentle Yoga is for you. If you can’t stand on one foot without toppling, Gentle Yoga is for you. If you can’t bend and touch the floor, Gentle Yoga is definitely for you. If you have any questions, ask Annie ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
