I am taking a good guess that there are lots of men and women who need a class like this. I will be teaching this class beginning in September. Yep, me, Debra!
Here's how it has come about. I have been teaching group fitness classes (cardio, weights, barre only), at least 5x a week for 27 years. I am fit, but I am sore. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. I love yoga. I love and take Energy's yoga classes when I can. Our instructors are ridiculously amazing. Along with those classes, I want more. I do not want to disrupt others all the time when I am in yoga with my grunting into a position, laughing out loud at myself, sighing, or staring at my neighbor in compete awe that they can do the Eagle pose.
If you need a class to learn more about the cross-training benefits of yoga, and your muscles are screaming for yoga, and if you are not interested in advanced circus soleil asanas, please join me for a super fun non-traditional yoga class. If needed, you can wince, laugh or do anything you need to get into your pose to enjoy the undisputed facts of the physical and mental benefits of yoga.
This class can only be taught by Debra. Her mantra has always been “Oh my gosh, I need yoga so badly, but it hurts so bad, so good, and I want to yell.” This is a great addition to our yoga class schedule. If your body feels the effects of “too any squats, too many barre classes, and/or you simply are “born this way” with tight and sore muscles, enjoy, no, not enjoy -- practice the poses of flexibility and strength with the understanding that it’s okay to wince, and just “get through this” to reap the amazing and undisputed benefits of yoga in a non-traditional yoga class. Disclaimer: Taught by a 27-year certified fitness instructor who cannot speak Sanskrit and will mostly like curse loudly under her breath.
