Independent Adult Classes

Halestone Dance Studio is excited to offer the following adult classes.  Interested students should contact the instructor directly, as registration for these classes is handled independently by the instructor.

YOGA: Easing Into Yoga and Gentle Yoga
Taught by Susan Evans.

Fall 2018: Classes will begin on September 17th!

Mondays, 9:00 to 10:15:  Easing Into Yoga
This is a great class for those with limited mobility or knee and hip replacements. We begin in a chair for breath work and warm ups,  move to standing poses that focus on strength and balance and then to the floor or back to a chair for stretches and relaxation.
Thursdays, 9:00 to 10:15: Gentle Yoga
This is a more traditional yoga class, but very gentle with many modifications offered.  Perfect for beginners, but challenges are offered for those who want to take their practice deeper.  Focus is on building strength, balance, flexibility and relaxation.
$95.00 for a 10 class pass; May be used by other family members, out of town quests, or for a friend new to yoga (one time only, please)
$15.00 drop-in.
