Take your Yoga outside and enjoy the beautiful New England summer! In this all-levels Hatha class at the YogaBalance Yoga Platform at Dorrs Pond, we will enjoy stretching and strengthening, movement and stillness, challenge and ease. Appropriate for all. Beginners welcome – modifications will be offered. Sign up online and if you need to borrow a mat, please email us at Mail@YogaBalance.info
Classes take place at Dorrs Pond, Livingston Park, 156 Hooksett Road, Manchester NH. From the Dorrs Pond parking lot, begin to walk clockwise on the trail. Continue about 0.1 miles and look for the sign for the YogaBalance Yoga platform just set back from the trail on the right.
Perfect for beginners or experienced students who want a slower paced, less strenuous class, in this class, we will focus on stretching postures, gentle flows and breathing techniques that release stress, reduce tension and promote relaxation. We will finish with an optional 10-15 meditation for those who are interested or enjoy a deliciously long and luxurious Savasana! Absolutely no Yoga or Meditation experience is required.
Space is limited; sign up as soon as you can! $95 per person; $65 for seniors and students. 10% discount for YogaBalance monthly members.
Join Saket Sankhla, disciple of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, for authentic Tibetan Buddhist Meditation. In this class, we will explore:

• Introduction to Mudras: Incorporating postures that are important for meditation, such as Dhyana mudra, Prana mudra, and Moksha mudra
$30 (10% discount for YogaBalance monthly members). Please wear comfortable clothing.
We will start off slowly warming up and easing into motion. We will spend time playing with movement, patterns, rhythms, and tempos. We’ll experiment with moving fast & slow, dramatic & demur, big & small, heavy & light. We’ll play with shifting, pulsing, shimmying, rocking, swaying, swirling, and bouncing. YogaDance® is about being with your whole self, inviting the emotional body to explore graceful, easeful, joyful, primal, passionate, and sorrowful ways the body can “speak” that are beyond human words. We will then ride a cascading wave of energy into a deep and integrative relaxation.
No experience is necessary for this experience. If you long to release your body from the confines of prescribed and habitual movement, if you yearn to express what the human language doesn’t have words for, if you want to take a shortcut to joy and happiness, join us!
