Outdoor Classes

These classes are weather and air quality dependent.

Should we cancel for weather, we may choose to schedule a virtual class over Zoom instead. We will do our best to email out the night before, but in the case of traveling wildfire smoke, we make make some last minute decisions. Class status will be updated below/emailed out/posted to facebook should things change. Please check any of these sources to get the latest news for your class!

 

I acknowledge that we have been experiencing rather consistent poor air quality due to smoke. I plan to only cancel for more extreme smoky days: so this will be days when I cannot see the hill near my house (which does happen), days that ash falls from the sky, days that the smell is consistent and strong. 

Class Status:

Wednesday 9/23 6pm: outside

Friday 9/25 7am: outside

Tuesday 9/29 6pm: outside

Flow + Strength with Christina

Tuesdays 6pm beginning 9/15

 

We will work through a vinyasa-inspired flow, connecting our movement with our breath in different ways to challenge, strengthen and stretch our bodies. We will focus on postures and supportive exercises that build overall strength, including core awareness. This class will be vigorous, however we will always offer options for those who want to take it a bit slower. Join as you are - we will work towards our goals together.

All Levels Vinyasa with Frances

Thursday 9/17 6pm pop-up

Wednesdays 6pm beginning 9/23

A vinyasa flow, where we use both breath and intention to move from one pose to another. We will strive to let go of competition with both ourselves and others, and embrace how our bodies are feeling in the present moment to set the tone for our own personal invigorating and/or restful practice. All are welcome!

Friday Flow with Christina

Fridays 7am

 

This class will feature a little bit of all the yoga: moving the spine in all directions, hip and hamstring stretches, along with some arm and core strength. A perfect way to end the work week!

What you need to know!

Where to go:

We will be meeting underneath the big shady trees near the playground at the intersection of Forbes Ave. and Mitchell St. that is across from APET. There is a gravel parking area.

 

Face coverings:

Please wear a face covering over your mouth and nose upon arrival. Our ability to hold these classes outdoors took a lot of time and effort to coordinate with and get approval from various agencies on base. We will keep to the current COVID-19 guidelines. Please select a spot for class that is at least 6 feet away from your neighbor and keep your facial covering on until you are set up at your spot. Once we are all situated with spacing we can remove our facial coverings for class. Please refrain from ANY physical contact, including elbow bumps, with anyone that is not a member of your immediate household. To support our friends we recommend air hugs and verbal encouragement.

Bring your own stuff:

At this time we are not able to share any of our extra yoga props or mats. Please bring your own mat for class. If you do not have a mat, a beach towel can work great. In fact, some students may like a blanket or towel under their mat as an extra layer between you and the grass. We will do our best to cue work in the class that can all be done without props, but if you have your own goodies (blocks/strap/blanket/bolster), please go ahead and bring them because we love them. If we see students with them, we might toss in some options for fun ways the items can be used to enhance the practice.

Checking in:

Signing in will be touch free! Instructors will keep track. If you are new with us, please make sure to come introduce yourself.

Payment:

These classes will be donation-based. To keep things simple, Christina will process contributions for all classes, so whether you donate by the month or by the class, she will ensure that donations are passed along to Frances. Donations will be accepted electronically only through either Venmo at @Christina-Loiacono-1 (phone #6838) or PayPal at yogawchristina@gmail.com.

Waiver:

We plan to have one. This will be something that can be emailed back to us electronically. Please check back.

Prenatal Yoga:

While we do not offer prenatal yoga specifically, we find that many times we are able to include options for prenatal students with normal healthy pregnancies in our general classes. Please let us know if you are expecting so we can do our best to help you create a successful class experience. If you have any concerns with physical activity and your specific pregnancy, we recommend reaching out to your doctor.

Bathrooms:

This area does not have bathrooms. Please plan accordingly.
