Namaste' 
I hope you will join me for the Gentle Yoga classes offered in Davidson, NC; I have been teaching Yoga for over 14 years specializing in Gentle Yoga, Yoga for Seniors, Restorative Yoga and Yoga for Anxiety and Depression.  Scroll down to my "Inspirational Story".  It I'm very aware of conditions that limit movement and give lots of modifications for the classes.  I encourage you to focus on what you can do, not what you are having difficulty with.  The class is about one hour long and the style is slow and meditative.  We use a chair as a prop so you can feel secure.

What some students are saying -

“I enjoy your Monday "gentle yoga" class, particularly when we use chairs, straps and the bars. As I've told you, my backs feels so much better after golf.”  Harold

 

“Forgot to tell you something today that I meant to say before I left -- I stood up from the floor in a way that I haven't done in many years, from even before surgeries on my knee & ankle in 2010. For some reason I was watching you get up, did what you said, and stood up without a struggle. I was so amazed that I stood there for a minute thinking about it, as I didn't know I could stand up like that, and was slow starting the next exercise.  Then tonight I had to get down on the floor & look under furniture for something and then stood up the same way. Knees didn't hurt or anything. So, the yoga is definitely helping! Yeah, yeah and YEAH!”
Cindy

 

The calmness and centering - that I use throughout my day is a great stress buster, it all starts with my Yoga Class, without it am much more stressed/negative.  Yoga snaps me back to gratitude and perspective which has been life changing for me!

Keep bringing those closing words of wisdom - they really do work!

Moon and Sun Yoga... why this name?

In Ayruvedic philosophy the Moon is related to the mind, which creates changes in emotions and mental faculties while the Sun is related to human awareness or consciousness.  Thus by blending the two we get balance of the body and the mind and the Spirit.

MY INSPIRATIONAL STORY:

No More Excuses

Image: 

Reasons people give saying they can’t do yoga:

–I’m too stiff.
–I have arthritis.
–I’m overweight.
–I have a bad back.
–I’m too old.
–I’m too tired.
–I’m a guy.
 
Let me describe the people in one of my recent classes: 
Their ages range from 42 to 82. 
One has a hearing problem. 
One has scoliosis and deals with chronic pain.
One has fibromyalgia. 
Two of them have had hip replacements.
Two a guys. 
Half of them can’t touch their toes. 
 
Let me describe their teacher:
I am 66, and have had major heart surgery.  I went to Kripalu in 1999 not to learn how to be a teacher but I was trying to heal myself.  After 5 years of dead end streets, the left side of my body was going weak and would fall numb most every night to the point I couldn't sleep.  No one could give me an answer as to why this was happening.  I decided to try yoga, since it had been so good for my body as a young woman I thought maybe it can help me with this condition.  In October of 1999 I went to a month long teacher training and 
I did yoga about 6 hours a day + more in our teacher training classes.  This was like yoga boot camp, I didn't have even one day off during the whole month.  By the time I finished Teacher Training, the numbness and weakness were gone, my flexibility was back and the first time in years, I could touch my toes.
All this being said, I thought to myself, I need to share this with anyone who will come.  So I decided to start teaching yoga.  The rest is history.  
  
What got me going in yoga: weakness, pain and discomfort.
 
What keeps me here: Hope... improved health and inspiration, the small, but steady progress in dealing with the challenges my body presents, yoga helps me deal with the hand I have been dealt in this life. And ultimately, this is the gift of yoga, and this is what keeps us all coming back to the mat again and again.
