Introducing Yoga Classes In Randolph, NY
This has been on the back burner for quite some time. Randolph is a small town that is home to Kara, her husband, and her dog. Teaching to a local community is one of the best opportunities for a yoga teacher, to get to know students in a more personal way and to become more deeply entwined in the area that teachers call home is a beautiful luxury. Also, not having a big commute to teach is a fantastic benefit of teaching locally.
Starting this fall, Kara will offer an all levels, hour long class at The Village Dance Studio in Randolph. Classes will primarily focus on moving students’ bodies to stretch weary muscles and calm hectic minds. Props will be made available by Kara. Students are encourage to bring their own yoga mat, dress comfortably, and come with an open mind to try new things.
Classes will be the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, 10am-11am.
Arm Balance Workshop, Sun Moon Yoga, Saturday, October 13th 11am-12:30pm
Whether you’re just beginning to play with joyful arm balances or can steadily hold bakasana you will practice core strengthening drills, upper body strengthening drills, and mobility work for the hips to get your body into versions of common, yet challenging arm balances. With proper instruction and alignment you will surprise yourself with your body’s capabilities. A familiarity with vinyasa yoga is helpful, but not necessary. Must be able to hold weight on the wrists in downdog and plank comfortably.
Vinyasa Yoga Workshop, Peace, Love, & Wellness – Saturday, October 20th, 10am-11:30am
Vinyasa is a popular form of yoga that is also known as flow yoga. In this style of yoga the teacher instructs quick movements that link with the breath. Most vinyasa yoga classes are fast and challenging and sometimes are referred to as Power Yoga, or Power Vinyasa. In order to feel comfortable and confident in vinyasa classes a student must first understand the basics of the flow and general poses – hence this workshop.
Kara will safely and concisely break down the two Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar A & B) which are the key sequences that constitute a vinyasa flow. Students will work through varying levels of plank and chaturanga as well as learn variations of downward facing dog for those with wrist or shoulder pain. Other poses broken down include standing, balancing, and seated postures.
This workshop is for all levels, from beginners to intermediate and advanced students, with modifications given for varying levels.
