Beginning Yoga Description
This is a four-week introduction to basic yoga poses, breathing and some meditation to promote physical health, balance and a peaceful mind. Students will receive personalized instruction on yoga poses and adaptions that make yoga gentle, accessible and effective for them.
The gentle yoga classes will be especially useful for students looking for relief from back, neck or shoulder pain, and from stress and tension. We will focus on yoga poses and breathing techniques which soften and quiet the mind and body so you can feel relaxed and at ease.
All levels are welcome, from complete beginners to advanced students. Contact Zoe via email or call/text (812) 250-9642. You can also sign up online here.
Healing Sound with Traditional Vedic Chant
I am hoping to resume this class on Tuesday evenings in Autumn 2019. Please contact me via email if you are interested in learning more.
$10 per class
Chanting Class Description
Learn to use sound as meditation with traditional Sanskrit mantras and chants in this group class.
Traditional Vedic chants and mantras have a long history of using certain sounds, rhythm and pitch in meditation to create different experiences, sensations and moods. Sound is a powerful tool for creating change and supporting well-being, and Vedic chants balance the mind and mood in the same way yoga poses balance the body.
Each month, Zoe will teach a chant that is beginner friendly and useful to students who are interested in incorporating chanting in their yoga or meditation practice.
This year we will cover the Gayatri Mantra, Sraddha Suktam and Medha Mantra. These three chants cultivate inner strength, conviction, wisdom and clarity.
In each class, you will practice basic chanting skills and pronunciation, and Zoe will provide handouts and audio recordings to refer to during practice.
To learn more about chanting classes or lessons, contact Zoe by email or at (812) 250-9642.
Zoe's Yoga classes are held at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, at 5130 Lincoln Ave, in Evansville, IN.
The main entrance to the church is on the West side of the building, adjacent to a large parking lot. When you enter the building, you will go to the office at your left to sign in, and the staff can direct you down the hall to the yoga room.
