NEW – Soulfire Yoga with Joy – a Blissful Heart Yoga Class!

Saturdays 9 – 10:30 am   STARTING SEPTEMBER 16, 2017

Joy Nagle is very excited to be offering this new class to the community. She believes everyone can benefit from the practice of Yoga, and her class is suitable for all students, from those just starting out to the more practiced. Joys teachings are rooted in traditional Hatha teachings and will include meditation, pranayama (Yogic breathing), posture fundamentals with modifications and safe body alignment. The class will be meditative in quality allowing students to deeply connect to their bodies through movement and breath. Strengthening yet gentle, the practice will allow students to unwind body tension, release stress, and open to the blissful vibrancy of being fully present to yourself.

Please email Joy Nagle at joyousom@gmail.com to preregister for class or call 505-747-0002.

 Yoga classes are offered by Kat.  Svastha Yoga focuses on the elements of body, mind and breath, learning the importance of each, and their interdependence. Yoga is so well suited to helping us strengthen our body, helping our mind to contribute to that strengthening, and using our breath to bring it all together.

All Classes include guided group instruction. Tuesdays are medium intensity, with an emphasis on strengthening and increasing flexibility of our backs. Fridays are gentle, with emphasis on promoting flexibility, mobility and some strengthening, by modifying yoga poses so there is less stress on key joints such as knees and wrists.
Class times  (check calendar for occasional cancellations):

  • Tuesdays  10:00 to 11:30 A.M.
  • Fridays      10:00 to 11:30 A.M. “Gentle Yoga”
