Weekly yoga class turns to tradition

By Staff | Feb 26, 2016

Beginning Thursday, Feb. 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Renew Yoga (Shepherdstown) will offer a weekly yoga class incorporating the more traditional aspects of yoga.

Classical Yoga reflects many of the writings and traditions of the sages. Every 90-minute class incorporates meditation, pranayama (breathing), asana (postures) and group chanting. Asana practice begins slowly and builds to intermediate and advanced poses. Participants are encouraged to honor or challenge their “comfort zone” throughout. Structural variations often are taught by dissecting even the simplest of poses. The two most important prerequisites for this class are courage and a sense of humor. Those with questions or concerns, please call the teacher, Judy Jenner, at 304-876-6918.

Participants can sign up online at renewyogawv.com or at the first class. (Please come early if registering for the first time.)
