Yoga in the Sanctuary with Amy Stauber
Those who practice yoga have joy within, delight within, and radiance within.
Sharing the life-changing practice of yoga with members and friends of 1stUUPB and the larger community advances our mission of transforming lives through liberal religious community. Yoga is, at its heart, a spiritual practice that developed thousands of years ago to help us prepare for meditation and has become a form of moving meditation. It strengthens the muscles that support the spine, activates the cardiovascular system, increases and maintains range of motion, and calms the central nervous system. By developing ease in the body, practitioners develop clarity and peaceful presence one practice at a time.
Chair Yoga: Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (Leader, Amy Stauber)
Using the support of a chair for both seated and standing postures, students will be guided through a sequence of stretching, strengthening, and breathing exercises. Chair yoga is a gentle, meditative practice that develops body awareness and helps to build and maintain range of motion. It also makes yoga accessible for those with mobility issues and injuries.
Yoga Basics: Thursdays 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (Leader, Amy Stauber)
Practice fundamental postures of yoga from seated, standing, and reclined positions. All postures will be presented for beginner, intermediate, and more advanced students. Please bring your own yoga mat to class.
