Day 18 of IDJSIJ Challenge – Doing Jack Shit In Person
Today’s post covers a few upcoming class offerings in the Frenchtown and Flemington area. Although the classes I am teaching aren’t restorative, they do include some meditation and visualization practices. However, read to the end to find about a great restorative yoga opportunity this weekend!
Yoga Basics at Yoga Loka, 23 Race Street, Frenchtown
This is a six week workshop that starts Monday the 23rd and will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 am with a virtual zoom option as well. Classes will be recorded and shared, so if you have to miss one, you can watch it on your own time. The cost is $108 for the series.
This class is for both beginner and existing students. In Yoga Basics, we will go over standard yoga poses that you will find in most regular vinyasa flow or hatha classes. In each case, we will explore the pose and all its variations to find the version that will work the best for your body. We will figure out how props can enhance the pose or make them more accessible for different physical restrictions. For example, when covering cat and dog tilts, we will talk about:
This will be a fun chatty class where we exchange ideas and shout out what we’re feeling. Hope to see you there, live or on zoom! Go directly to Yoga Loka to register at https://www.yoga-loka.com/workshops.html.
Chair Yoga For Seniors at Hunterdon County Main Library, Rt 12, Flemington
This class will run Tuesdays in March at 11 am, and is free to attend for both members and non-members. More info to come about registration.
Chair Yoga is an excellent practice to move the body in a safe supportive way for people of all ages and levels. When supported by a chair, we open up and move all the joints in the body, and focus on muscle strengthening and stretching. Each class will include basic standing poses using the chair for balance and support, as well as relaxing meditation and breathing practices. Handouts will be included so your can continue your practice in your own home.
Restorative Yoga By Candlelight With Lianne , Yoga Loka, 23 Race Street, Frenchtown
I am attending this class as a student and can’t wait! This one is exactly what it says it will be. Lianne will guide us through a series of restorative poses with lots of bolsters, blankets, and candlelight. This will take place THIS Saturday the 21st from 6 to 7:15 pm. $30 for the class and you register directly on Yoga Loka’s website https://www.yoga-loka.com/workshops.html.
Afterward, you can walk next door to see Tom playing drums with the Rob Lanter Trio at the Rathskeller Bar in the National Hotel from 7-10. That’s what I’ll be doing! I’m sure nothing concludes a session of restorative yoga like a nice big martini and some jazz music.
I want to share with you the yoga I practice, teach, and live.
