Virtual Yoga Breathing Workshop Series: Pranayama Fundamentals
Join me for two 75-minute workshops on the fundamentals of yoga breathing (pranayama). You can take just part 1, or parts 1 & 2. Workshops will be held virtually via Zoom. I am offering part 1 twice, and part 2 twice, in order to accommodate different scheduling needs.
The workshops will follow this format:
Centering (checking in with self, getting into the body);
Gentle warm-ups (get the creaks out!);
Context and instruction for 2 pranayama techniques: dirgha pranayama (3 part deep yogic breathing) and ujjayi pranayama (ocean sounding breath);
Gentle yoga practice incorporating the breathing techniques we have learned;
Who is this workshop series for? Everyone! From brand new yogis to those wanting to go back to the basics. Oh, and if you’re coming to my beach yoga classes starting soon, this is a great way to start to get “into the flow” of things. Registration closes 30 minutes before class begins.

Beach Yoga at Woodmont Beach, Milford CT
Join me for a beautiful social distancing class and breathe, stretch, and find some inner peace outdoors. Classes are all levels, leaning more toward the beginner side of things. Please read all the way through for schedule, policies (including COVID-19 related, and cancellation/no-show), registration, payment, what to bring, and more!
We’ll meet on the beach by the park (near Wall St & Beach, Woodmont). If it’s too busy, we can shift our location a little.
Class size is limited to 12 participants, please register in advance. Registration procedures are changing for 2021. Please check back for this information coming soon!
If you have registered and will be unable to attend, please contact me as early as you can (no later than 3 hours before class), as there is often a wait list for these classes. This will give someone else the opportunity to attend.
Please review the cancellation and no-show policy carefully.

What to Bring
Summer: Water, sunscreen, a blanket/mat/towel to practice on, any props (like yoga blocks or extra towels/blankets/eye pillow for shavasana) you may need.
In order to comply with standard operating procedures due to COVID-19:
– If you are not feeling well, have a fever, are suspected to have COVID-19, know that you have been exposed to others who have COVID-19, etc., please do not come to class. If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, please do not come to class until you have been cleared by a physician to return to life in public. Thank you for keeping our community safe.
– Mats/towels will need to be at least 6 ft apart (try to separate even more).
– Masks are not required as you practice, but you may want to bring one for other interaction before/after class.
– I will not be giving any hands-on assists and will not approach you without a mask.
Cancellations due to Weather
Should weather force a class cancellation, I will notify you at least an hour in advance at the email you used to pre-register and also by text to the phone number you provided. Inclement weather that forces a cancellation includes (but is not limited to): thunderstorms, extreme rain and high winds, temperatures over 95 degrees F with high humidity, air quality alerts, and conditions that recommend extreme caution.
I look forward to getting out there with you, enjoying the nice weather, and getting a little peace from the craziness, while focusing on keeping everyone safe.
