What are Pam’s Yoga classes like?
Yoga for Lunch, Yoga for Life, Yoga for Cancer Care
Yoga for Lunch
Yoga for Lunch is an invigorating way to restore energy, calm your mind, decrease your appetite, and eliminate those afternoon “blahs.” The practice of yoga at midday, when the sun is at its peak vibration, allows you access to its healing, restorative properties by increasing prana, our life-force energy. Yoga for Lunch leaves you feeling happy, calm and energized, instead of lethargic or jittery from a heavy meal or a cup of coffee. Give yourself a midday pick-me-up and try Yoga for Lunch!!
Monday and Wednesday, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. at Yoga Haven, 12 Forest Court, in Bearden/Homberg Place on the corner of Court and Forest Court, off of Mohican and next to the new Goodwill.
Yoga for Life
Yoga for Life is gentle yoga based on the five principles of Sivananda Yoga…1) Proper Breathing; 2) Proper Exercise; 3) Proper Diet; 4) Proper Relaxation; and 5) Positive Thinking / Meditation. Yoga for Life honors each person for who they are, and recognizes individual limitations, strengths, intentions and desires. Each class is a comprehensive approach to yoga that includes breathwork, asanas (poses), and relaxation. I strive to find just the right combination to allow students to explore, stretch, balance and strengthen their bodies, to focus and calm the mind, and to increase prana, our life-force energy. Yoga is for Life…it sustains and enriches our quality of life, regardless of age, body type, personality, or disposition.
Monday, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church, 110 Sugarwood Dr., Sugarwood Subdivision in Farragut (just off Kingston Pike, 2 miles west of Campbell Station Rd.)
Yoga for Cancer Care
Yoga for Cancer Care offers the cancer patient or person recovering from cancer treatment a very gentle, restorative practice. Careful attention is paid to the type of treatments, therapies, and side effects the person has experienced and / or is currently experiencing. It is extremely important to move slowly and gently, allowing the body to rebuild and restore without being depleted, stressed or damaged. Most important during this time is reducing stress and tension from the body and mind, so the practice involves mostly seated and reclined poses, with plenty of relaxation and attention to breath.
Studies show that other chronic illness, life-threatening disease and injury can be helped with the practice of yoga. Yoga has helped people with fibromyalgia, MS, hypertension, heart disease, arthritis, and repetitive stress injuries to the back, neck, wrists and shoulders to have better quality of life by reducing pain, increasing strength and flexibility and releasing stress.
