Gentle Yoga ~ Level 1


This class is taught by:

Barry Glassman

My relationship with yoga is an important grounding contribution to my spirit walk. The teachings layer in nicely with my connection to and practice of Native American Sweatlodge and philosophies, love of our Mother Earth and wisdom of the Self = the One. Practices and concepts I enjoy bringing to the mat and classes are: pranayama, meditation, chanting, asana, meridian energy, and learnings from ancient Indian texts. Love the Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata and Upanishads just for the shear enjoyment of it; always something to learn or marvel at. Other Earthly enjoyments during the rest of life: reading, music, the out of doors, growing things (in the garden, heart & mind), cooking, any art project, carpentry, and broadening the circle of friends = family of the heart. Come practice together. Namaste.

Dean Jones

Dean first tried yoga in 1996 as an 'easy' fitness credit while at
college. Intrigued he continued the practice until 2010 when it became
a much more significant part of his life. Dean completed both his 200
and 300 hour teacher trainings at Live Well studio as of 2018. Deans'
classes often involve a focus on nervous system relaxation, respecting
ones own intuition, linking movement to breath, practicing presence in
our bodies, minds and hearts, meditation, as well as letting go and
perhaps having some goofy fun. Life is often quite serious, after all
this is only practice! When not practicing he can be found rock
climbing, drinking tea, reading books, playing role playing games, and
eating chocolate.

Olivia Heath

Olivia has loved yoga from the first time she stepped onto a mat at a Chicago Park District class in 2006. The majority of her practice has involved traditional hatha, vinyasa, and restorative styles. She has also practiced beginner Ashtanga and Forrest as well as Bikram and other heated styles of yoga. Olivia strives to achieve sthira (steadiness) and sukha (comfort) in her practice; alignment and modifications are top priorities in each pose. Classes she teaches are a creative and deliberate fusion of asana, pranayama, and mindfulness with some music and smiling mixed in too. The word Yoga means “to unite”, and Olivia loves connecting with others and sharing the experience of yoga! Off the mat, Olivia is an academic advisor at OSU and a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA essential oils. She enjoys cooking, coloring, volunteering, knitting, and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Nancy Rosenberger

I am a certified Pilates mat instructor and RYT 200 Yoga teacher. I received my Pilates mat training from Lisa Wells and Yoga training at Kripalu Institute from Brahmani Liebman and Jashoda Edmunds. Yoga and Pilates make me physically and spiritually available to the world—inner and outer. Having embarked on a retirement that specializes in right-brain activity, I take delight in sharing Pilates and Yoga with other people. My classes simultaneously relax and sharpen the body for increased mindful awareness. My teaching is influenced by my practice of Zen with teacher Seido Debra Martin of Zen West in Eugene and my career as a Professor of Anthropology at Oregon State University. I indulge myself with hikes, music, grandchildren, and travel spiced up with a dash of research.
Everyone can benefit from gentle yoga practiced with awareness on the subtleties of sensation, alignment, and energy. Gentle Yoga offers many benefits: it increases mobility, range of motion, joint stability, strength, balance, and endurance while reducing pain, decreasing stress, and improving overall health. This class avoids weight bearing on the wrists and knees, while including standing poses, balancing poses, core and back strengthening, mental acuity training, relaxation, and body awareness. This class will teach poses and body awareness with adaptations, modifications, and the use of props to accommodate all bodies. Guided meditation and relaxation bound the practice.
