1/6 Creative Takes on Classic Poses
In this class, we will add variations to the classic foundational poses to breathe new life into your practice allowing each version to open up the body in its unique way.
1/9 Building Better Bones
The bone marrow is the essence of our life force in Chinese Medicine. When we access the core-sheath of the body we are working to strengthen the bones and the periosteum.
1/13 The Sacred Sacrum
The keystone of the pelvis and pocketed with holes the sacrum is the cornerstone of all movement in the lower body. The sacrum is part of the first and second chakra uniting earth and water. In this series of poses, we will work with these elements to realign and mobilize the sacrad sacrum.
1/16 "Psoas I was saying..."
A key player in many of our favorite asanas also aids in things like walking and climbing stairs. We associate the psoas with the hips but they have a lot more to do with the spine. Let's dive in together!
1/20 Pumped About Prana
Prana is difficult to define, it is much more than the breath that flows in and out of the lungs. In this class, we will focus on the respiratory diaphragm and moving prana throughout the whole body.
1/23 Freedom in forwarding Folds
We will work in seated, supine, and standing forward forwards in-order to lengthen the spine, soften the hamstrings, and open the inner channels of the legs.
1/27 Finding Your Inner Dancer
This class will lead you through seated, and standing poses to open your hips and back body to prepare you for Natarajasana, the Dancer’s Pose.
1/30 Balancing Act
Balance is built from within, over time, and with lots of practice. It is different every day depending on our sleep, diet, and mental state of mind, just to name a few. We will work with our balance (or lack of) not just in standing poses but seated, and prone positions.
Helpful props include blocks, a blanket, strap, bolster, and sometimes a wall.
What Students are Saying
"I’ve been taking Cherie’s yoga classes several times a week for the past four years. Cherie is the most knowledgeable, professional yoga teacher in the county. Cherie “brings it” to every class. She wants each one of her students to have a positive experience in class and offers lots of individual attention. Her classes are appropriate for all skill levels, from absolute beginners to experts.
Yoga can be challenging, but the rewards are great and go far beyond the physical. The more you practice, the better you will feel—body, mind, and spirit".
"I never considered myself a “yoga person” and couldn't’ imagine the benefits of yoga until one of my friends “dragged” me to your class 3 years ago. My friend assured me I would love you and your teachings, and she was SO RIGHT!
Your knowledge, enthusiasm, and love of yoga (not to mention your infectious laugh that I ADORE) have benefitted me in more ways than I could have ever thought or imagined! My body, mind, and soul have all been transformed by your teachings, and I cannot thank you enough! I truly love my mat time with you (my body craves it), and I always leave your class feeling better, calmer, lighter, happier, centered than when I walked in the door.
You are a truly remarkable woman, and I am blessed to have you as my yoga teacher!"
Namaste, Kim C.
