You don’t need to wait for a new session to start to join in — you may join in at any time.
My classes are designed for all levels; beginners and long-time students of yoga are welcome (and all levels in-between). Don’t worry if you’ve never been on a yoga mat before. Yoga is a beautifully forgiving practice; each pose is accessible to each of us as long as we approach the pose with kindness, and we never push to the point of discomfort or pain. Sometimes each of us must modify a pose to support injuries or restrictions; yoga can be modified in infinite ways to make it accessible and beneficial to all of us.
Two classes with Jackie are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Plus, one Saturday morning class each month at 9:30 a.m.
The 4:30 p.m. class focuses on a Level 1 practice, exploring basic Yoga poses from a variety of traditions.
The 6:00 p.m. class is a Level 1/Level 2 class and may include more challenging Yoga for those who would like a slightly more vigorous practice (with modifications available for beginners).
That Saturday morning class is a blended Level 1/Level 2 class.
While beginners and others are welcome at any of my classes, if you have physical restrictions that may limit your practice, you may find the easier pace of the 4:30 classes more comfortable for your needs — at least to start.
We practice basic hatha yoga and I like to explore and play with many different yoga practices — including flowing Vinyasa Yoga, gentle Tibetan Yoga, and balancing Ayurvedic Yoga. Every class includes breathing practices and time for relaxation and meditation. Yoga is a wonderful way to bring health, flexibility, and strength to the body; calm the mind and relieve stress; and rejuvenate the spirit.
Class Sessions — Sessions are generally on an 8-week schedule (although that does change from time to time, especially in summer and around the holidays, so check the website to see where we are in a session and for the dates of the monthly Saturday morning classes).
** $13 ** Single/Drop-In Class
There are three delicious discounts for people who choose to enroll in a full session.
** $125 ** UNLIMITED SESSION. Come twice a week and to the Saturday classes, or as often as your schedule allows. (That’s like getting the session for nearly HALF OFF … or nearly 9 classes FREE over the regular drop-in cost!)
** $74 ** EIGHT CLASSES. Take any eight classes over the eight-week session. (That’s like getting 2 classes FREE over the regular drop-in rate!)
** $80 ** TEN CLASSES. Take any ten classes over the eight-week session. (That’s like getting nearly 4 classes FREE over the regular drop-in rate!)
These options offer a deep discount over the per-class rate of $13/class.
(Make-Up Policy: Students may make up any missed classes during the session, by coming on a different day or at a different time. Because of the generous fee discount, there is no carry-over into the next session.)
What To Bring/What To Wear — Bring a Yoga mat if you have one. We do have a few “loaner” mats available. We also have Yoga blocks and other props for your use. Dress for light exercise. Most students wear Yoga pants, leggings, sweats, or shorts, along with a short-sleeved tee shirt. During the relaxation part of class you may wish to have a sweat shirt, socks, or an extra layer available. Yoga is done in bare feet. You may bring a bottle of water if you like (no other food or drink is allowed in the studio). Cell phones must be turned off during class (“vibrate only” is also distracting to others around you).
Cancellations — Occasionally classes are cancelled due to bad weather or other calendar conflicts. Session dates are adjusted accordingly. I post last-minute cancellations on this page and on Facebook (Peaceful Hands on Facebook). I encourage you to sign up and “follow” this blog so you receive notice of changes via email as soon as I post them.
Refunds — If you enroll, but must drop out of a session, please let me know as soon as you make your decision. You will be charged for the classes in the session up to the point when you contacted me, at the regular drop-in rate of $13/class, and will be charged a $15 administration fee. Because the session fees offer such generous discounts over the regular drop-in fee, it may be that there is no outstanding refund owed.
