Asana Clinic

Explore and deepen your practice with the 5-week Asana Clinic taught by Nancy Sessoms, E-RYT 500.

This 5-week interactive asana clinic is an opportunity for you to receive individual attention so that you can improve your alignment and go deeper and safely into your own poses. The classes are kept to a maximum of 7 people.

From home you will need zoom videoconferencing capability and a place to be clearly seen on your mat (preferably against a wall). There will be breaks between poses for questions and feedback.

Beginner to intermediate poses will be taught. All are welcome and encouraged to enroll. Pose variations or alternatives will be offered.

Please email peace@gloucesteryoga.com prior to enrollment if you have any injuries or movement disabilities that would affect your participation.

You are required to provide your own mat, and props. You will need a blanket, strap, and 2 blocks.

Classes held every Saturday in January from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Series of 5 classes $99.
