In addition to its popular Tuesday/Friday yoga classes, Grace Cottage is offering a ‘Chair Yoga’ class on Wednesdays from 1:00 – 1:45, March 7th – April 11th. Beginners to yoga are welcome, as is anyone with limited flexibility or an inability to practice on the floor. Participants will flow through an eclectic blend of seated and standing poses while incorporating breathing techniques into their movements. In this class, you will open your hips, move your shoulders and neck, and find length in your spine. A goal is to experience peaceful relaxation as well as gentle invigoration.
Grace Cottage’s ongoing yoga classes, taught in the Viniyoga tradition, are Tuesdays from 4:30-6:00 and Fridays from 3:30 -5:00. Both the new six-week Chair class and the Viniyoga classes are taught by Crystal Mansfield, Grace Cottage’s Director of Rehabilitation Services and Wellness Programs and a certified yoga instructor who trained at the Kripalu Institute.
The cost for any weekly yoga class is just $25 for six weeks, or $5/class. All classes are held in the warm, bright and inspiring Grace Cottage Community Wellness Center, Heins Building, 133 Grafton Road (Route 35,) Townshend. Prior to attending a first class, please call 802-365-3649.
