Fall schedule 2018
Monday evening’s at 6pm
Nalanda Bodhi located at 6218 Quinpool Road (Maximum 12 per class)

All levels yoga/pilates fusion: This class offers a great deal of variety, drawing on many different disciplines of yoga and pilates.  A major focus in this class is building core strength to help posture and alignment, as well as helping participants to explore their own physical and mental limits to make the practice their own.  This all levels class is challenging, but it is in the challenge that we learn to relax the mind and deal with stress more effectively.  Options are given to back away from, or go deeper into poses to suit the needs of participants.

Tuesday’s at 11:30am
Veith House (max 15 per class)
Vinyasa Flow: 
This all levels class is a vinyasa style (flow) with sun salutes often between poses. A typical class will build up to a pinnacle pose of some sort. There are a lot of hip opening sequences for those who sit at desks as well core work.
Note: Proceeds for this class go entirely to Veith House for to use in their continued programming for the North End community.

Wednesday’s at 12noon
Nalanda Bodhi (max 12 per class)
Cardio Bootie Burn: This class will have a fun warm up that will rehearse moves we’ll be doing in the cardio portion. Cardio will be a dance-style (don’t worry if you can’t dance! This is meant for everyone) workout with multi-level options so you can modify or intensify to your energy level and fitness level. We’ll be mixing in some bootie burning exercises so we can keep strong in this all important area that will help reduce back pain by strengthening so that the front of the body is able to open more.

Thursday at 5:30pm
Nalanda Bodhi (max 10 per class)
Restora-Thai: This class will focus on restorative poses held for long intervals, breath work and will incorporate aspects of thai yoga massage and/or reiki. This is a dine almost entirely while laying on the floor, sometimes using props and is intended to relax the mind and body, build flexibility and release tension and stress held in the body.

Participant review:

“For anyone who drives long distances, sits for long periods of time or feels tight in their shoulders, neck or hips….this is a perfect way to loosen those muscles. It doesn’t involve a big energy output but you leave feeling energized!” B.E, 2018

Friday’s at noon
Nalanda Bodhi (Max 12 per class)
Yoga for Swimmers: You do not need to be a swimmer to take this class! We’ll be working on the muscles important to swimmers – shoulders, hips and core. That means lots of core work, hip opening, shoulder opening and strengthening. These happen to be the same groups that many of us need to open due to sitting at desks. Get targeted in your efforts with this vinyasa flow.

Friday’s at 5:30pm
Nalanda Bodhi
Cardio Bootie Burn: So fun we’ll do it again!
