This is a go-at your-own-pace class is designed for anyone wanting to try or come back to yoga. It’s for people who may be apprehensive about joining a yoga class for such reasons as: 

  •  it has been a long time since you last exercised

  • you do not feel flexible

  • you have had an injury or surgery, joint issues or other physical discomfort that limits your range of motion

  • you are not comfortable getting down to and up off the floor (yoga mat).  

Everyone will have a chair and yoga mat available to them. Poses can be done in a chair or standing while using the chair for balance and then modified as strength, stamina, balance, and self-confidence are gained. The ancient wisdom of yoga is a gentle, yet powerful, way to achieve your personal mind/body/spirit connection.  Wear comfortable clothes you can easily move in. 

Wednesday, June 5 from 11-12 PM
FREE for all to attend!

Pre-registration required.

Elizabeth first taught herself yoga in the 70’s.  After a knee injury which required her to be in a brace for several weeks, she discovered that Yoga was the only way she could safely exercise.  She began going to a Chair yoga class and continued going to many different teachers as a student, eventually receiving her 200-hour yoga teacher certificate in April, 2016 from Radiance Yoga in Pittsfield, MA.

She has been teaching various styles of yoga to all levels of students. 

Her mission is to bring yoga to everyone, regardless of physical limitations so they may gain strength, stamina and confidence through a safe personal practice.  She is pleased to have this opportunity to offer a fully Accessible Yoga Class. 

She holds a BA in Social Sciences with a major in Psychology from the University of Maine at Augusta. She has received her leadership training certificate in Y12SR, The yoga of 12 Step Recovery.  She is also certified to teach AQUA YOGA.
