Yoga for Absolute Beginners

Wednesdays, 8:00 am

The beginners mind is more of an attitude than a skill. A refreshing sense of openness rooted in humility, and a true readiness to learn. Whether you are stepping onto a yoga mat for the first time, or a regular practitioner who would like a “tune up”, this is your class. The practice is based on a flow style yoga that combines stretches and postures (asanas) that are linked with the breath, to develop flexibility and relaxation. Proper alignment is the cornerstone in this balanced strong and centered practice and props such as straps and blocks are sometimes utilized. Students are urged to “honor where they are” in their learning, focusing on the journey of their experience rather than a finish point or destination. I’m Looking forward to taking this journey of mind body and spirit fitness with you.

Gentle Yoga

Wednesdays, 10:30 am

A chance to calm the nervous system and bring awareness to the body, heart, and mind. Strengthen, balance, and unwind in this 60 minute practice. Through gentle Hatha postures, lengthened stretching, deep body awareness, and mindfulness meditation, cultivate a sense of joy and clarity to carry with you off the mat. All levels welcome.

About Shauna:
“The body speaks to us in the way we breathe and move. Yoga is the translator of that language.”
– Shauna R
A strong desire for heart healing and spiritual purpose brought Shauna to Yoga Community’s 200 Hour Advanced Studies And Yoga Teacher Training Program. Embracing the cultivation of the mind offered by her training in Raja yoga (eight limbed path) and valuing the benefits of a solar and lunar physical practice, better known as Hatha yoga, Shauna cultivates her own style rooted in alignment of the breath and the body and the natural flow of “prana” or life force. Residing in Sonoma since she was six years old, Shauna has a strong connection and deep love for her community and wishes to share that energy and essence with her students whether local or otherwise.
