Our much anticipated Art Center Annex opens February 1 with Lucy Dysart’s vinyasa yoga class from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. We want you there so were making that first class just $5! Vinyasa yogo movement is synchronized to the breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath becomes an important component because the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit as meaning ‘connection.’
The Center for the Arts is offering a variety of yoga classes at our new Annex at 309 14th Street in Glenwood Springs, taught by 5 outstanding teachers. This full and expansive, multi-faceted physical and spiritual tradition draws from countless influences and customs.
Meet the Teachers
Marcy Oliver describes this art as “an ancient discipline that explores, develops, and integrates the body, mind and spirit. Yoga systematically stretches and strengthens muscles throughout the body, increases circulation to internal organs, quiets the nervous systems, and improves concentration. This system of self-care brings vitality, health, deep relaxation and piece of mind.”
Marcy’s students typically have varying levels of experience and ability – many working on recovery from injuries.
Vickie Powell is all about hot yoga. This can refer to any yoga class done in a heated room. The room is usually maintained at a temperature of 95-100 degrees Fahrenheit. Most often, hot yoga tends to be a flowing, vinyasa style of practice in which the teacher instructs a series of linked poses. As you can imagine, a vigorous yoga session at high temperature promotes profuse sweating and makes the body very warm.
Cherlynn Wakehouse and Vida Dillard round out this amazing group of dedicated, inspiring and skilled teachers. They both specialize in hot and vinyasa yoga instruction; just what you are looking for to build the core.
Classes begin February 1 and continue through May 31 as early as 6:30 a.m. and as late as 7:00 p.m. Drop in for $13 and see which class works for you.
