YOGA For WELL-BEING
This flagship class is based in the Hatha tradition and the moves are challenging yet simple and accessible to all. Class is open to all new and veteran yoga students, ages 12 to 112. Each class attempts to satisfy the physical and emotional requests of participants, so each class is different. Traditionally yoga was not about a physical workout, nor its physical benefits. While a regular practice strengthens the immune system, prevents disease and corrects many physical and mental health problems while shaping and toning the body, a committed practice actually transforms one in a much deeper way. Learn proper breathing and meditation. Classes are held in a warmed room.
Back to Basics
At each class we touch on the concepts, philosophy, anatomy and connections to mind and spirit. Learn how to self-diagnose and self treat simple issues such as headaches, stress, shoulder, hip and back pain. This is a beginner-friendly class where experienced students will still learn something new each week.
Yoga: Keeping it Simple
Let's shed the stresses of the week and get ready for the weekend with long, deep stretches on the mat. Relax away the kinks and aches and start to incorporate meditation into your life. The class introduces the concept of Chakra meditation to heal and balance the body, mind and spirit.
Yoga in the Park
Yoga in the Park is an adult class for all students who want a somewhat challenging stretch and workout. Reduce tension, learn to relax, and learn new breathing techniques for energy and to correct respiratory weaknesses. You will notice how energized and strong you feel afterward. Classes are specifically tailored to individuals at each class; therefore, no class is the same. All levels are welcome. Not recommended for pregnant women. Class usually meets at the Gazebo in Whetstone Park of Roses, 3901 N High St, Columbus, OH 43214 while weather permits.
Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance class. A few of the rhythms that students will learn are Salsa, Cumbia, Reggaeton, Bhangra, and Hip Hop. This class welcomes students of all fitness levels; modifications will be shown to either increase or decrease the level of intensity to meet each individual’s needs. No prior dance experience necessary!
Perhaps the end of your work week is drawing near; perhaps you are in the throes of busyness right now; perhaps your retirement has made your life more hectic than ever; or, perhaps all is well, and you have learned that it is always good and healthy to step back and to treat yourself – body, mind, and spirit – to the sweet nectar of yoga. Whatever your state of activity might be, Re-treat Yoga aims to be the balm your being needs: a river of slow, reflective flows linking the channels of spirit, mind, and body. Classes are open to all levels of experience, with emphasis on alignment and the encouragement of modifications.
