Curious Students Needed:
11:00 am: DEEP STRETCH - RESTORE
Deep Stretch / Restore is an active stretching class that targets primary muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings and upper back. Living in a forward facing, seated world, these areas tend to be tight for everyone. Tight muscles can cause imbalance and pull the body out of alignment. This class begins with warm-up movements to build heat and prepare the muscles for stretching. MANY poses are done on the floor and held for 1-2 minutes. Holding poses for longer periods of time and focusing on breath gives the body time to fully relax and open.
Deep Stretch / Restore is an accessible class that everyone needs – athletes, advanced practitioners, weekend warriors, first time yoga students and everyone in between. Focused stretching allows muscles to relax and lengthen, which puts less strain on the skeletal system and reduces tension throughout the body. Students who take this class regularly report fewer injuries and improved sleep.
Restore is a great class for first time yoga students. Neither experience nor flexibility are required, just an open mind and a willingness to have fun while trying something new.
7:00 pm: ONLINE YOGA FOR ATHLETES - TUE 7p
Athletes recognize how paramount fluid breathwork is to supporting a relaxed body and mind when performing at a physical limit. Climbers specifically. So, we begin each class focusing on our breath and slowing it into deep diaphragmatic breathing. Once connecting to this centering, stress-relieving ingredient, we begin moving energy though our bodies with a vinyasa flow, core work and stretching exercises, that will build strength for the cruxes of our chosen sport.
Complementing your athletic endeavors with a regular yoga practice, you can benefit from improved stamina, flexibility, agility and centering. In addition, yoga enhances proprioception, a vital ingredient in all sports. This class will be tailored to athletes and specifically climbers, so we can all stay in tip top mental and physical shape through this stay-at-home timeframe.
Understanding how many millions of people have lost their jobs and their source of income, I have offered classes online for free since the beginning of this global pandemic (mid-March, 2020). If you have found any of them helpful in your journey and are able to contribute, here are my payment accounts. If you are not able, please continue to take class and take care of you. The world needs you. Thank you.
I taught yoga to climbers and other athletes on Tuesday nights at Climb So iLL, an indoor climbing gym in downtown St. Louis opened by two brothers 8 years ago. I will again. For now, I will guide this class online.
7:00 pm: POSTPONED: ALL LEVELS YOGA at Climb So iLL
This is an all levels accessible yoga class held upstairs at Climb So iLL in downtown St. Louis. We will emphasize alignment and adequate breathing, while focusing on flexibility and strength. Some specific functional movements will be offered to help your climbing or sport of choice. I love to customize classes based on needs expressed, so come ask how yoga can help. If I can offer you movements to address your issue that night I will, or I'll find solutions and bring them back!
Yoga is an excellent way to improve flexibility and overall fitness. It complements climbing well, and vice versa, which is why Climb So iLL offers classes two times per week. On Tuesdays with me and Thursday nights, catch class with Anne Schweitzer.

9:45 am: POSTPONED: ROOT Yoga
ROOT Fundamentals is a signature yoga class of LifePower Yoga at Life Time Frontenac. ROOT's intention - providing a welcoming entry point to LifePower Yoga. It is designed for students new to yoga, students dealing with physical limitations or injuries, and experienced students who are looking to slow their practice down. This class has a therapeutic quality to it by allowing students to feel more, look inward and heal deeply. Life Time opens in Frontenac December 12, 2019.
7:00 pm: POSTPONED: SURRENDER - YIN YOGA
This class will reconvene when Life Time Frontenac reopens.
Learn to Let Go
This slow, meditative yin-yoga practice is designed to mindfully stress your body’s connective tissues as you breathe into the ever-changing sensations that arise in long-held poses.
What to Expect
You’ll be guided through a series of passive postures, mostly done on the floor. Poses are held for up to several minutes, allowing fascia and joints to gradually compress or release. This class is suitable for all experience levels; you’ll learn to utilize your breath and observe your natural tendencies when faced with discomfort.
Why it Works
Physically, long-held yoga poses mobilize and lubricate the joints and can help make these tissues more flexible. Mentally, these poses challenge you to meet arising resistance with mindfulness and self-compassion, teaching you to find the middle ground between craving and aversion.
