Grass Valley Yoga is delighted to reach out to the greater community by providing a DONATION YOGA class.
This class is held every Saturday morning from 10:30 am-12 pm.
Led by certified yoga instructor Laura Prakash.
This class is an all-levels, traditional yoga class, and open to all physical and financial abilities. Absolute beginners are always welcome!
The inspiration behind this class is to make yoga accessible to anyone who wishes to give yoga a try or continue practicing. At Grass Valley Yoga we pride ourselves in being a friendly non-intimidating studio where we aim to provide personal care and attention to everyone who enters our space. Instructor Laura enjoys catering classes to her students, and paying great attention to detail. She likes to tell her students, “It doesn’t matter how you look in the pose; it matters how you feel.” Laura encourages correct alignment in poses, in order to build strength through the joints and the core. Students leave feeling enlightened, grounded and connected following Laura’s classes. At a minimum, be expected to leave class with a smile on your face!
If you’re in the market for a yoga class, the Donation YOGA class is a great place to start! There is no need to commit to a series of classes, simply come as you are and deposit what you can in the pot. Our goal is to help you to understand where your body properly fits in each pose, leaving you feeling stronger and more confident in your yoga understanding and ability.
One of yoga’s greatest gifts is its emphasis on the breath. As you move while consciously inhaling and exhaling, you increase your breathing capacity and bring awareness to how your breath supports your movement. You may discover you take shallow breaths into your chest, or you tend to hold the breath while exerting physical effort. A continued practice of yoga will help you to deepen the breath, and therefore enjoy a more relaxed and vibrant life. Yoga offers many physical, physiological and emotional benefits. It is never too late to start.
Laura has been teaching yoga for over 20 years, and has a passion for community & connection. Read her full bio here.
