This class will hold the space for you to relax, integrate, and rest deep within yourself. Beginners at yoga as well as those who have yoga experience are welcome. The class will begin with breath and centering exercises to move into mindfulness and to draw the senses inward. We'll practice balanced Classical Yoga postures that focus on finding gentle mobility and core strength. The process will be invigorating and calming for the body, mind, and spirit. Modifying and adapting poses using chairs and other props will make the practice adaptable and gentle.
Yoga Instructor: Christina Gesualdi
I am a Philly-based yoga teacher, dancer, and choreographer. I make experiential dance work that researches a certain softness and imaginative off-ness in the body. I am in love with the way Yoga as an experiential study, makes space for pluralism, subtlety, (and to use poet C.A. Conrad's title) "deviant propulsion" of the self. I have taught Yoga for over 12 years. I am grateful for over 400hrs of Yoga teacher training and have been a curious student under Marie Ireola, Nicole Bindler, and Dawn Smelser at Motherheart for teacher training and the Inner Journey Program. I teach Yoga to senior citizens, undergraduates, and students of all levels at various gyms, Temple University and University of the Arts. I've also led embodied presence Yoga classes for kids at Neighborhood Bike Works Summer Cycling Camp and Girl's Rock Philly Summer Camp.
