Denise Ford instructs the following:
Gentle Level is ideal for seniors, pregnant women, and students recovering from illness, injury or surgery. Gentle classes are also great for anyone who needs a little rest and quiet from the busy pace of life. Gentle Yoga has a slower pace and the teachers give more instruction on how to use props such as chairs, the wall, blocks, blankets, bolsters for support. Gentle Yoga introduces fundamental Hatha Yoga postures while ensuring that students have time to understand the instructions, and get the props needed to practice the pose to their capacity. This class may include accupressure yoga, chakra yoga visualizations, pranayama and mudras. Class ends in deep relaxation.
Although this class is suited to students needing assistance, students with pronounced physical limitations are requested to phone us first about their restrictions before coming to class. Phone Laura Spaulding at the main office during business hours at 502-585-9642. Leave a message if she is out and she will return your call.

Our reduce rate classes help make yoga available to more people in the Greater Louisville community. This is a mixed level Hatha 1-2 class taught by either new yoga teachers or volunteer teachers.
Mixed Level classes are geared to students in normal health who are still working to learn fundamental postures as well as those who have more experience and are seeking to expand, refine and develop their yoga practice at more subtle levels. All classes end with deep relaxation.
$5 classes are included in all membership options.
