NEW! YOGA: Beginner to Intermediate **OFFERED at the NEW ACADEMIC ARTS CENTER IN LOWELL***
This 6-week yoga series is intended for anyone who is interested in yoga but has been a bit shy to take the first step or has tried it but isn't sure if they are practicing the poses correctly and safely.  If you’re afraid that you aren’t flexible enough, coordinated enough or aren’t strong enough to practice yoga - then this is the series for you! In these classes we will break down the nuts and bolts of the alignment of the poses so that you can safely hold postures to develop strength, stability, mobility and flexibility. Students will gain an understanding of breath, and move through basic sun salutations, connecting their breath to movement and spend some time in restorative poses at the end of each practice to allow for a deep state of relaxation.  We will practice in a fabulous new space with brand new props along with a skilled instructor who will help you enjoy the process of growing your yoga practice, from a Beginner Student to Intermediate. After this series you will be ready to jump into any all-levels yoga class! Yoga mats and props are provided.  This course is taught in partnership with YOGA NOVA Studios in Bedford, MA.  $20 supply fee due at the first class payable to the instructor: Yoga Nova via cash or check. (6 hours) $100
