|Yoga in the Garden for Men
Aug 09, 2012
5:45 - 7:00 pm
In the East where yoga originated, it is predominantly practiced by men. Surveys show that men would like to try yoga for the physical and mind health benefits, but are reluctant to go to a general class with mostly women in the group. This class provides a safe haven for men to start or continue their practice of yoga.
Join us to practice yoga in the serene setting of beautiful flowers, shrubs and majestic trees. We will be taking in the sights, scents and sounds of the outdoor world the way yoga is traditionally practiced (when weather does not permit we will practice indoors).
Janak is a long time certified practitioner of yoga and also a Master Gardener at the Bartlett and will incorporate poses that are especially beneficial for gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
Some benefits of yoga are:
- Relief from back pain
- Increased Flexibility
- Increased Strength
- Relief from Stress & Anxiety
- Hormone & Blood pressure regulation
- Relief from Insomnia
- And so much more
Our goal is to rejuvenate the body, relax the nervous system and quiet the thought waves of the mind through physical poses(asanas) and breathing techniques(pranyama).
Non Members: $20
Classes held every Thursday until August 23rd. All levels are welcome, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners.
FIRST CLASS IS FREE
