Yoga in Gooderham

Join us on Wednesdays at the Gooderham Community Centre for:

Chair Yoga 11am

Gentle Yoga 7pm

Want to try yoga and meditation but don’t know where to begin? Come explore the basics in a safe and welcoming environment with Michaela Shaw. Michaela has been sharing her love of yoga with the Toronto area community on a part-time and volunteer basis for almost 20 years and now resides full time in Gooderham. Her classes are both energizing and relaxing with thoughtful instructions that allow her students to take the lessons that they learn in her yoga classes and bring them into their daily lives.

Each class will create an experience that includes:

  • User-friendly yoga, with adaptations offered for all skill levels and abilities
  • Pranayama (breathing techniques) to calm the nervous system and steady the mind
  • A sample of meditation as part of every class (loving kindness, body awareness, breath awareness)
  • A final pose of deep relaxation

Details for Wednesday 11am Chair Yoga Class:

Chair yoga is a great option for those who are beginning an exercise program or anyone with mobility limitations and aging bodies.

Chair yoga can bring increased flexibility, improve your ability to move and balance as well as reducing stress and help manage pain and discomfort.
