In the beginning there were a multitude of reasons why yoga was not going to be for her..."I was not flexible, I did not have the right body portions, did not have the right clothes etc..." but after having started her practice and continued her studies with Yoga East President Laura Spaulding (and all the wonderful teacher at Yoga East) Tricia soon began to realize what yoga is really about, and how it is for anyone and everyone willing to give it a chance.
Remember to breath; never panic; always smile; and practice, practice, practice...all is coming. Om shanti, shanti, shanti...
Tricia Nelson 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.
