Yoga

Yoga classes at the Cascade club are offered by John R. Barkley and Zofia Kumas-Tan.

Yin yoga is a slow, deep practice. Yin postures are generally seated, kneeling, or lying-down, supported with blocks or bolsters, and held for 2 to 5 minutes The aim is to give the body’s connective tissues (fascia, tendons, ligaments) a deep stretch, developing greater flexibility, mental focus, and relaxation through a mostly still practice. Join Zofia for Yin Yoga on Tuesday evenings, 7:45-8:45 pm, right after the spinning class. Perhaps even combine the two!

Classical yoga is a practice that equally develops strength, flexibility, balance and endurance. The postures are more varied than in yin yoga, and are generally held for several breaths (rather than minutes). As mind and body are united through the breath, the practice becomes a form of meditation in motion. Join Zofia for Classical Yoga on Friday mornings, 9:15-10:15am.
