New! Tuesday Evening
Yin Yoga


  IMG_9169 
 Join Shelburne Falls Yoga Director Kate Pousont Scarborough for a new Gentle Yoga class meeting each Tuesday, 6-7 pm

Yin Yoga is a form that involves long holds in passive postures. The practice often results in increased flexibility, mental clarity, and vitality. These postures are combined with a gentle warm up and some restorative postures for a powerfully balancing, relaxing, and rejuvenating yoga experience. This class is ideal for both beginners and experienced practitioners seeking to balance more vigorous activities or the stresses of daily life.

Welcome to Shelburne Falls Yoga!  We are a vibrant and growing community of students and teachers offering a range of classes in Yoga, Fitness, Qigong, and Dance for students of all ages and levels of experience.  Shelburne Falls Yoga offers a beautiful, spacious studio overlooking the nearby Salmon Falls and Glacial Potholes and experienced instructors dedicated to guiding you toward greater levels of vitality, health, and well-being.

 

In accordance with the Kripalu tradition, each of our offerings honors the individual, promotes compassion, and taps into the full potential of each student with classes designed to bring the breath, the body, and the mind into alignment. Many students notice significant gains in strength and flexibility and experience greater levels of calm as they learn to harness the power of breath and body working together.

 

The practice of Yoga is both ancient and broad.  Given the wide variety of interpretations of yoga teachings and the range of skill and intentions amongst teachers and studios, it can be hard to know what to expect when entering a yoga class setting. Our aim is to provide a nurturing and challenging environment in which you will learn the skills for discovering and sustaining long-term health and vitality at whatever depth and level of practice is suitable for you.  Listed below are just a few of the practices you will have an opportunity to explore as a member of our unique yoga community:

 

Safe and Effective Movement PatternsLearn to identify how muscles are in use in a given posture, how the spine, pelvis, and limbs relate to one another, and where to initiate motion and effort for safe and effective movement.

Non-Judging Awareness- Practice suspending judgment while anchoring attention to the present moment, cultivating a more meaningful and realistic relationship with your body and your surroundings

Stability and Mobility- Find a functional and dynamic balance between strength and flexibility, allowing for optimal range of motion while avoiding the potential dangers of hypermobility.

Balance- Promote balance in thought, in motion, in breath, and in the systems of the body to create a strong foundation from which to choose your next course of action both on and off the mat.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to Shelburne Falls Yoga!

Director Kate Pousont Scarborough, E-RYT 500
