Dr. April C. Foreman will begin offering a free introduction to Yoga this Thursday at the church at 5:00 p.m. Here’s April’s description:
April Foreman will be offering a restorative yoga class. Restorative yoga focuses on breathing, deep relaxation, and stretching as a means to improve health and reduce stiffness and tension. The style of yoga April teaches is fitness based and does not focus on the religous or spiritual aspects of the discipline. Loose clothes or clothes that allow a wide range of movement are appropriate attire. You don’t need to have any experience with yoga to participate. Bring a mat if you have one. Appropriate for a wide range of age and fitness levels. It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure that they are physically able to participate in this class. April has experience teaching yoga to Senior Citizens, pregnant women, people with a range of health concerns, as well as younger adults with a broad range of phyical fitness. If you have special fitness needs that should be considered during your participation in class (like hypertension, pregnancy, pain/injury joint injury or replacement, etc.) it is the participant’s responsibility to notify April before you begin.
The best explanation of the intended effect of a restorative yoga class was given by a first time participant in April’s class who said, “I feel more relaxed and rested than if I had laid on the couch and watched TV all night like I usually do.”
