Kids Yoga with Ursula
Saturday, January 30, 2010 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

The benefits of yoga are endless for grown ups and children alike. Here is a perfect opportunity to introduce yoga to your kids to help them increase their overall fitness, especially coordination, balance and flexibility. Studies show that yoga helps to boost self-esteem, confidence and to deal with everyday stresses our kids face on a regular basis.

During this introductory class, students will learn the basic yoga poses, sun salutations and breathing techniques in a fun and supportive setting.

$20/child; for ages 7 – 11

Partner Yoga with Keith and Tara
Sunday, February 14, 2010 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

For a special way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, join us for two and a half hours of partner yoga with Keith and Tara. Partner yoga can be practiced by any two people: friends, colleagues, parents, children, siblings and couples. Come with a partner or on your own, and we will pair you up. Whether complete beginner or advanced practitioner, or any level in between, the benefits of this practice are yours to discover. Practicing yoga with a partner provides a fun and safe way to deepen your experience of yoga poses or to take your very first yoga class.

Keith and Tara have been studying and practicing yoga for well over two decades. While Keith began his journey in the Vinyasa style of Ashtanga Yoga, Tara is deeply steeped in the tradition of Iyengar Yoga. Fusing the two styles, they teach Vinyasa yoga infused with Iyengar alignment. Their classes are welcoming, fun and full of great instruction.

$35/person; $30/person for IPY unlimited pass holders
