Yoga With Marian

As we age we lose muscle mass and need to maintain strength and balance. I want to help you maintain your body and life through practicing yoga. Join me!

Try different classes here. Every class has a different emphasis and theme. I want to know what you like and how I can help you stay strong, calm and flexible. We are all in this together. 

Current Offerings:

Bone Strengthening Yoga - In this class we will work on standing strengthening yoga poses as well as core poses on our mat for abs, hips and lower back. We will warm up slowly and safely. 

It's important to keep challenging ourselves as we age. We want to continue living fully and not give up. I believe in you! I want to make sure you feel comfortable and that you feel strong. Listen to your body. All poses can be modified for you using props.

Your practice in this class will develop core strength by holding each standing pose while strengthening your hips and back. This helps prevent injuries and to increase balance. Weekly practice will allow your body time to build strength while increasing flexibility and stamina.

Please ask me any questions you have about Bone Strengthening Yoga.

  • Props needed: blocks and strap. Sometimes we use a roller too. It's great to help develop balance and core strength.

Gentle Yoga - This class allows your body time to slow down and feel your breath while moving from posture to posture and toning core muscles. Support yourself with care and kindness while strengthening the area around the knees and hips and to unwind tension and tightness in the low back. Every movement can be modified for greater comfort and support. Starting slow and steady will help build your practice.

Yoga helps us find our way with greater awareness and to relax deeper. Practicing gentle yoga allows time to move slowly and observe ourselves and our body, bringing greater compassion and understanding to where we are right now.

I welcome all questions and want to help you move more easily with gentle yoga.

  • Props needed: blocks, strap, blanket.

Immune Support Yoga - Join us and strengthen your immune system with restorative yoga poses that help release stress and allow your immune system time to strengthen and heal. Always listen to your body with what postures and movements feel right to you. You can use whatever is in your own home to help support your body, although listed below are recommended props. 

During class, notice your breathing and allow each cell to relax. Meditation at the end of each session for optimal relaxation. Feel free to ask any questions. I am happy to answer them and I look forward to working with you.

  • Props needed: mat, firm blanket, block, folding chair, space near a wall.

Chair Yoga 

Activate your energy with Chair yoga! Use the chair for balance, greater flexibility and mobility. Beginners welcome. 

Are you feeling tight and want to increase your flexibility? Join us and use a folding chair to help with tight hips and hamstrings. Strengthen your back and core. Open up your shoulders and breathe deeply. You will feel energized!

  • Props needed: Folding chair, mat for underneath the chair, block and strap.

My class is always wonderful. I hate it when I have to miss a session. I have been practicing Gentle Yoga with Marian for a while. It has helped me with flexibility and stability which I seem to need more and more every year. I highly recommend the Gentle Yoga class.

Class was very good. Would appreciate more on coordination of breathing with the movements. Thank you for the alternatives to forward fold which is really hard with a herniated disk!

Thank you, Marian. I don't have a camera on my apple mini and the mike does not seem to work for you to hear me. I can hear you, however. I definitely feel the lack of yoga since about February. But, I will try to stick with it to see if I can get back a little more stamiina.

Marian is one of the best and most lovely of yoga teachers. She has helped me become stronger and more balanced with her quiet and thorough instruction. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great yoga teacher!
