Class Breakdown

The classes are designed to incorporate an honoring of values, stress management tools and a building of community within the group. Mandy follows The New Leaf model for class where we have the mats in a cicle and a taspestry in the middle with a candle. We open class with a talking piece and proceed to lay the foundations for each students values to be honored and respected. The students would have to come up with a value that they honor and respect of someone they're close to and agree to implement it in each of our sessions. For example, students will often say 'Trust' or 'listen when I'm speaking' - having these values builds respect and trust amoungs the group and with the teacher.
The middle of the class consists of either hatha or yin yoga based on the energy level of the group and will be woven with an intention the students can use in their daily life.
We close class with a min 5 min relaxation and breathing technique before doing a final checking with how they are feeling. Each class they are given a question to consider and answer for the next session.
