Gentle Yoga I


This class is taught by:

Geneva Moss

At the age of twenty, Geneva's first teacher impressed upon her the long term benefits of yoga as choices to increase health and well being. Through the following years her practice has come to embrace the richness of the totality of yoga as her dharma. The wisdom and practice of yoga resonate with Geneva to the core of her being. She commits herself and her teaching to the study and exploration of the self through the practice of Tantra Hatha Yoga. Geneva began teaching yoga internationally in 2005, and is a certified ParaYoga teacher and registered 500-hour Yoga Alliance teacher. Her classes create the opportunity to explore balance and stability within the fire of effort. Geneva's students experience a personal, committed and connected practice with intelligent sequencing, curiousity and the balance of humor and depth. Geneva's goal in teaching is to help her students be empowered and connect mind, body and energy and bring awareness to their own inner teacher. She continues to study extensively with her teachers Yogarupa Rod Stryker and Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. Geneva writes, travels, and offers the light and wisdom of yoga and meditation both in private and public classes, workshops, festivals, and retreats. Prior to teaching yoga, Geneva was a successful technology consultant and business development specialist and manager. Geneva resides in the DC Metro area with her family.
 
This class is intended for those seeking to build a relationship between the physical practice of yoga postures and the practice of seated meditation. The class is typically book-ended by meditation with about 30-40 minutes of movement in the middle. The meditations are usually breath-focused or gently guided mindfulness meditations. The closing sit (meditation) is longer than the opening meditation. The movement period incorporates warm ups and classical postures targeting the building of strength, stability, balance, and mobility. This class is welcoming of practitioners dealing with prior or current injury, persistent joint pain, osteoporosis, blood pressure management, asthma and any other related conditions. The pace of the class is slow and provides time for personalized modifications and teacher assistance.
The studio temperature will be adjusted depending on outside weather conditions to suit the comfort level of students and to optimize the benefits of the practice.
