Hatha Yoga — All Levels Welcome

Have you always wanted to practice yoga but hesitated because you thought it looked too difficult? If you are seeking a yoga class that will demystify yoga and teaches the basics in a supportive and fun environment, then this class is for you! We will start out with warm-ups and proceed to step-by-step asana instruction, providing you with an active yet gentle practice that focuses on breath work, strengthening of the core and back, stretching, toning, relaxation and meditation. This class will help you open up areas of tightness, such as hips and shoulders, and get you moving with basic Sun Salutations sequences—always with suggestions for modifications. If you are feeling stressed out, you will leave this class feeling refreshed and energized.

What to Bring

New students, please arrive 5-10 minutes early to prepare for class and to sign a class waiver. Requests, concerns, and questions will be happily addressed. Bring your own sunscreen and yoga mat or beach towel. You should also bring an old sheet or a beach towel to place under your yoga mat to aid in keeping sand off your mat. You will also want to bring sunglasses or a hat for sunny days and also water for after class. No shoes are needed, we will practice barefoot.

About Katherine (Katie) Carp

Katie Carp (RYT 500) started practicing Hatha Vinyasa yoga, after she was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2011.   Katie walked into her very first yoga class and learned that for one hour and fifteen minutes she could stop fighting herself.  Her yoga mat became a place where it was ok to forget the struggles and to just be.  She started teaching yoga to create a space where people could experience this feeling.  A moment in time to feel Strength, Confidence and Serenity just as they are. Sound has been an important part of her journey, she incorporates singing bowls into her classes.  The notes of a singing bowl linger in the air long after the bowl is played.  The soothing vibrations allow for a deeper meditative experience.
