“Yes,” you may say, “a regular yoga practice may be good for me, but I hesitate to sign up for a class. I have heard from my friends, family and my doctor how it helps the body become more flexible, stronger, how it improves balance, reduces stress and even that it can assist in healing and increasing happiness.
“But, I think I won’t be able to keep up and it will hurt to stretch.”
Here’s a chance for those who have never tried it to see what it is like to be in a gentle yoga class for the first time. A free class at 7:30 p.m. Thursday will present an overview of what yoga is all about and introduces new students to simple stretching and strengthening postures. The 90-minute class also includes simple breathing exercises and ends with a deep relaxation period.
TriYoga Davis and the Davis Holistic Health Center are co-sponsoring the program at the health center’s yoga studio, 1403 Fifth St.
Yoga mats and other props are available for participants, but those who have mats should bring them. TriYoga instructor Rose Loveall Sale will offer modifications and encouragement for beginners who may have mild physical limitations.
