Gentle Yoga or Restorative Yoga Every Tuesday
July 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until September 1, 2021
Join us every Tuesday at 9 am for a Gentle Yoga or Restorative Yoga class with one of our certified guest instructors. This one-hour yoga class is ideal for all skill levels – from beginners to expert yogis.
This form of yoga uses props to help support your body. The goal is to completely relax into poses, which are held for at least five minutes and sometimes longer. This means you might only do a handful of poses in a class, and it’s perfectly acceptable to drift into sleep during them. Some classes may include yoga nidra – a guided meditation that allows you to hover between sleep and wake. Though all different types of yoga can aid stress relief and brain health, restorative yoga poses place its focus on down-regulating the nervous system. Restorative yoga can benefit those who need to destress.
Single Class Drop-in Rate (non Lodge guest): $10 per class
Single Class Drop-in Rate (for Lodge guests): $8 per class
Four Class Pack: $32
*Guest instructor classes are by donation only with proceeds benefiting ADKAction, an organization dedicated to addressing unmet needs, promoting vibrant communities, and preserving the character of the Adirondack region.
