HATHA YOGA CLASSES with LAUREL

Welcome! The style of yoga that I teach is TriYoga®, founded by yogini Kaliji. I am a certified TriYoga® instructor, and a registered yoga therapist at the 500 hour level with the Yoga Alliance. My classes are for all skill levels. Each session lasts about 2 hours. The drop-in fee is $7. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a mat or blanket. It is wise to allow a couple hours to pass after eating before doing a yoga practice.

TriYoga® includes the full spectrum of traditional yoga practices. The hatha yoga method of TriYoga Flows unifies postures, breath and attention. This "trinity" of asana, pranayama and meditation allows the inherent flow to emerge. The practice becomes deeply meditative, promoting relaxation and inner peace. The method is therapeutic, as gentle or as challenging as desired.

For over 22 years, we've been meeting at Center for Spiritual Living in Kettering. We have classes here Monday through Friday from 9-11 am, Monday and Tuesday at 7-9 pm also Thursday 6-8 pm (see above photos) Every 1st Sat. of the month, we meet here at 7pm for "The Yoga of Chant". Each 3rd Sat. of the month we meet at 7pm for "Satsang." We meet in the serene Sanctuary. All of our special holiday yoga classes and the twice a year Dayville Yoga Retreats meet at the CFSL Sanctuary also. Parking is very convenient.

I conduct yoga classes that are user friendly. No one should be confused or overwhelmed. The poses and practices are demonstrated and explained. All classes are "drop-in" and newcomers are always welcome!

Classes usually begin with a chant. The chants are easy to learn. Chants help quiet the mind for the practice. Breathing practices, posture flows, asana and yogic teachings follow. The class concludes with deep relaxation and meditation. Assistance to individuals is not imposed, but is provided according to the participant's need or expressed desire. Throughout the classes various yogic themes are covered to give participants greater understanding of the yogic teachings, practices and to be able to integrate them into our everyday lives.

Gentle assistance for Half Tortoise Twist

Our Wednesday evening class meets at 6pm at David's United Church of Christ at the intersection of David Rd and Mad River Rd in Kettering. Park in the rear of the building and enter by the entrance on the right as you face the church. We meet upstairs in the quiet and spacious Fellowship Hall (pictured below) which is lit softly by chandaliers and wall sconces. The room is surrounded with large arched windows. The view of the trees outside is easily appreciated. We have been meeting at David's for the past 11 years.
