Glenwood Acupuncture and Healing Arts offers Gentle Yoga once per week, each Monday evening at 6:00 PM.
If you think of people in seemingly impossible and weirdly twisted poses when you think of “Yoga”, then you may have an inkling of what yoga is. However, Yoga is much more than those poses. Derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means “to unite or integrate”, yoga is a practice that originated in ancient India. Yoga is intended to harmonize the body with the mind and breath through the means of various breathing techniques, yoga postures (“asanas”) and meditation.
About our Classes
Yoga classes at Glenwood Acupuncture are designed to bring body, mind and spirit together through movement and breath. While focusing on the asanas and the breath, your mind will settle, and you will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Our classes are small in order that each participant can receive individualized attention. The beginner and the advanced student can practice together and, in doing so, will enhance each other’s practices.
Since our classes are small, please reserve your space by registering on our website. Of course, you can always come without pre-registration; however, we cannot guarantee a space for you.
All our teachers are properly trained, certified, and insured. They each bring a unique perspective to their practice and their teaching.
For Natalie Frick, yoga is not just about the physical asanas but the connection with your body and breath and understanding the journey of life. When she entered into the business world in a call center, this stressful environment caused a lot of anxiety and tension to build up. She found yoga helped her manage her anxieties and soon meditation began to really evolve in her practice. She would find herself closing her eyes and learning to reconnect her breath with her body and her body with her mind on the job. It wasn’t until Natalie left that position, that she saw how yoga can truly have a powerful effect on a persons mind and body. Knowing this made her want to become a yoga teacher to help spread the love and awareness to others about the wonderful effects of this practice.
