Gentle Yoga is designed for adults of any age, including seniors and those with minor physical ailments, who prefer a slower paced or more relaxed practice. Students practice beginning yoga postures and work on the principles of body alignment and breath awareness. Teachers provide lots of modifications and use props generously to ensure that poses are accessible for students with extra tight hips, cranky knees, or other minor limitations. Students of all levels are welcome, including those who are new to yoga. Some students choose Gentle Yoga as an introductory class before moving on to Level 1, but many students continue with Gentle Yoga because they prefer the more relaxed pace and approach.
