Building strength is important for yoga and the activities of daily life.  As we get older, it becomes even more important to maintain muscle and bone mass. This class practices yoga postures that strengthen the core muscles of the abdomen, back and pelvis and increase upper body strength.
Postures include Downward Dog, Plank, Handstands at the wall, arm balances, Boat Pose, leg raises. This is a challenging class, but many modifications are given for new students. Students at all levels will see immediate gains in strength and confidence.
