Core and Light Weights Class - Tuesdays 11:15 AM - 11:45 AM Pacific Time Live only, this class is NOT available as a recording
If you do not have weights you can still do the class, but if you want to use weights you will need two light weights (½ pound to 5 pounds dumbbells). When choosing your weights keep in mind this is a high rep class.* If you do not have dumbbells TWO THINGS of EQUAL weight can also work, like two equal bottles of water, two equal cans of fruit/vegetables, something that you can safely hold onto and move like you would a dumbbell. You will also want a yoga strap, we may be using it at the end of class. (You can use a scarf, a belt, a towel, a band, a robe belt, etc.)
If I do not have a waiver from you on file, please see click here or contact me so we can get that taken care of. Thank you so much.
*High rep is high repetition. With light weights we can move fast and get as many reps in as we can in our limited time. We are primarily working on muscle endurance. Each class is a progression from the last class with modifications and variations explained so that you can do what your body needs at the time of class and/or in case you have missed a class. You can take one class without having to take the previous class.

Information regarding what we do in a stretch class!
In our stretch classes we focus on stretching the muscles and joints. We are not always on the ground, sometimes we stand and stretch. Depending on where you are doing it you may want a mat and a towel for cushioning the knees. Often props used in a yoga practice can be used in a stretch class.
Our Zoom Stretch classes allow you to see Terre, the instructor, live. You may choose to have your camera on, too, so she can see you, but that is optional and completely up to you. What we do, in case you do want to be seen, is, we start with standing stretches, then we move down to the floor - at which time we adjust our devices so we can be seen on the floor. Again, transmitting a video is not required, but you have the option.
We will be using a strap in class. You can use a yoga strap, a belt, a towel, a band, a robe belt, something you don't mind putting around your feet.

Yin Yoga class details!
Yin Yoga is relatively new. Yin Yoga is about "stretching" the connective tissues and allowing the Qi to flow, so it is done very slowly with poses being held from 3 to 20 minutes*. You can click here to read about it on my blog. In these classes we will follow this general schedule: start with breathing, then do a little warms up stretch, possibly move onto a psoas stretch, with time to do from 7 to 10 Yin poses (*holding poses from 2 to 4 minutes), taking time for shavasana, and maybe ending with a few yang poses to get our bodies back to moving.
Many people like to use props when practicing Yin Yoga. If you have props you may want to have them available to you.
