Gentle Yoga at First Congregational Church: In-person or Remote

Mondays (in-person and online)
First Congregational Church (corner of Cottage and Mitchell Roads), So. Portland
9:30 am - 10:30 am 

Join me for this gentle yoga class, geared towards all levels. Whether you're new to yoga, returning after a break, or because your chiropractor keeps suggesting it....this class may be just right for you.  Experience deep relaxation after you've moved mindfully and loosened tight hips, hamstrings and shoulders. You'll receive clear, gentle instruction on postures and stretches and deepen into a blissful state in savasana (relaxation pose). In-person class size is intentionally small and the focus is on finding a yoga practice that works for you.  Mats and props provided.

You'll have the option of attending in-person or joining via Zoom.  Can't make it to class one day? All participants get a recording of class afterwards to watch at their convenience.
