Relax and Refresh Yoga with Pennee
This yoga class comes at a transition time of day – moving from your daily activities into your evening. To assist you with your transition, this class will have a focus on connecting your mind and body with the breath as you move through calming meditations and a light flow of yoga poses. These poses will gently move through warming and stretching the body, which can improve balance, flexibility, and strength. Let go of the day and prepare for your evening by allowing yourself to experience the feeling of being present “on your mat”.
This end of the day, beginning of the evening class will allow you time to nurture yourself in a warm, accepting, and beautiful environment – releasing and relaxing as well as refreshing your mind and body.

What are the results: When we are able to move slowly on our mats, we are able to feel our bodies in every asana, to feel our breath in our bodies as we move, twist, lengthen and extend, creating more depth and space in our bodies, hearts and souls. Improve your range of motion, balance, strength and overall flexibility.
Testimonial: “I’ve found the studio at the Yoga Farm to be a warm and inviting space. The instructors listen to the needs of the students, then craft a session with those needs in mind. As a beginner I’ve enjoyed the consistency with which the Yoga Farm has provided me with a peaceful and positive yoga experience.” – W.S., Ithaca, NY
“Thank you for over a year of weekly yoga classes. I appreciate your lighthearted approach and your attention to each of us as individuals. The poses and stretches are new for my husband and me, and fun. Class has been relaxing, restoring, rejuvenating, and can be physically demanding if we push. I would recommend your instruction to anyone interested in yoga or anyone who has specific goals.” – Maryanne B.

Yin Yoga with Christopher
So what exactly is Yin yoga? It is a more meditative approach with a physical focus much deeper than Yang like practices. Here the student is accessing the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (hips, sacrum, spine). As one ages flexibility in the joints decreases and Yin yoga is a wonderful way to maintain that flexibility.
This intimate practice of yoga requires students to be ready to be open to feelings, sensations, and emotions, more than in a fast paced yoga practice. Our space is prepared with candles and quiet music. The room is warm, and students will be kindly guided into an experience of their true Self.
When is this class: Thursdays 5:45-7:00pm [reserve your next class now]
Who this class is for: Class is suitable for everyone: older adults, people of all shapes and sizes, those who have practiced vigorous yoga for years — anyone who seeks a slow, meditative, deeply relaxing and renewing practice.
What are the results: Deep rest, healing and hydration of the connective tissues, reduction in joint pain, increased flexibility, peace of mind
