Yoga and Joint Health

This 4-week series explores the benefits of yoga for joint health. Each class will concentrate on a specific set of joints, targeting range-of-motion, strength, flexibility, and balance. Poses will be scaled from low-impact to higher-challenge, with adaptations provided for various joint limitations. As always, students will be encouraged to make pro-active decisions about their participation in any of the asana (postures).

Classes will be on Saturdays from 9:30-10:45am. Please note that the dates below are *not* all consecutive weekends. The featured joints include:

  • January 27: shoulders, elbows, wrists
  • February 3: hips
  • February 24: spine and SI joints
  • March 2: knees, ankles, feet

Cost: $48 for the series of 4 classes; $15 drop-in for individual classes
Instructor: Beth Connors-Manke

Yoga Alliance continuing education credits: 1.5 hours per class or 6 hours for the series. Those taking the course for CEs will have an extra 15 minutes of discussion time with Beth after the class.
