Saturdays, 9 – 10:30 am
with Lynn Absher
$15 per class / first class $10 for newcomers
This class with Lynn Absher is a blend of relaxing, calm stretching and vigorous, strength building standing poses.
Classes usually begin with a simple 1-2 minute seated meditation followed by at least 15-20 minutes of stretching warm-ups before engaging in more strenuous sequences of sun salutations and warrior poses.
The most vigorous, portion is usually followed by balancing poses for a calming and cooling down and then back to the floor and ending with a 5-10 minute savasana.
Warm up stretches are often geared toward a certain pose or body area that will be focused on during the class. With the use of props such as blocks and straps the class is suitable for all levels, from beginners to advanced.
Newer students are encouraged to find their own personal “edge,” not to push beyond their capacity and usually find, over time and with practice, their capacity increases and they can perform the more advanced versions of the pose.
Yoga is not competitive nor is it about self judgment, it is about linking the body and the mind through the breath thereby finding that calm, quiet place where you are totally in tune and at oneness in body, mind and spirit.
About Lynn Absher
I found I had a passion for yoga from the time I took my very first class. From both of my primary yoga instructors, Ranjana Pallana and Bharti Amin, I learned traditional hatha yoga using the breath to link mind and body, exploring the dynamic between will and surrender and practicing the poses slowly with intention and awareness, holding them long enough to energize and rejuvenate every area of the body. I completed my yoga teacher’s training in Integrative Yoga, a health and wellness oriented program and I have been a certified yoga instructor at the 200 hour level with the Yoga Alliance since 2003. I have taught yoga at Heights Recreation Center in Richardson, North Central Texas College in Corinth and Shambhala Wellness Center in Denton.
