Gentle Hatha Yoga Pass
MONDAYS, 5:30 - 6:45 p.m.  Beginning 1/28/19 through 4/1/19
Instructor: Amiee Romans discovered yoga in 1998 while going to school to become a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). As an LMT she saw how yoga improved her life and symptoms from an old car accident, as well as improving her client’s strength and posture. In 2006 she completed a 200-hour level training, from Integrative Yoga Therapy Teacher Training program, to more effectively help her clients.

Amiee combines her knowledge of the human body, understanding of injury, and belief that yoga is for everyone into her classes. Yoga is not about the pretty pictures in a magazine, but about real people, all shapes and sizes, learning how to move their body and use their breath to create wellness and peace of mind. You don’t need to be flexible to take a yoga class. If there is something you can’t do, Amiee will find a safe alternative that will allow you to participate and feel good about coming to class!

Gentle Hatha Yoga helps to increase flexibility and aligns your body and mind using strength building yoga postures and breathing techniques. This class is designed to be gentle, meaning postures are held for 3-5 breaths and can be easily modified for each individual. Through simple modifications yoga can be accessible to anyone regardless of their age, size or shape!

THURSDAYS, 5:30 - 6:45 p.m.- Beginning 1/24/19 through 3/28/19
Instructor: Alice Dury Completed 200 Hour Level Training from Integrative Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Program in 2006.   I began teaching at OSU Center for Wellness and Prevention in 2006.  After teaching a level 1 class and level 2 class two times a week at CWP for over 12 years yoga has become an integral part of my life.  My full time profession was in a highly stressful corporate sales position for over 32 years.   Yoga became my stress reliever and I believe the reason I was able to maintain my profession.  I’m passionate about teaching yoga and sharing what I have learned to help people on and off the mat.   I’ve personally practiced yoga for 25 years and firmly believe that the more I practice the more interesting it becomes.  Being a student of yoga helps me not only with my personal practice but it also helps keep my teaching skills fresh and up to date.

Alices' Thursday gentle class combines postures and breathing techniques to help relieve stress, increase flexibility and build strength. Whether you are just beginning your yoga practice or have practiced many years this class is for you. Teacher led modifications will help customize postures to meet your particular health issues and personal goals.  Tips on how to progress with your practice will be offered making this class interesting and never boring!    Basic yoga knowledge is helpful for this class.
