Suspension-Extension Coyopa Yoga: Mota Thai Yoga.

  community member   < less

Yoga--unlike other yoga class you've taken before. This class uses straps (similar to TRX) to stretch muscles that can be difficult to stretch in other exercises. The straps are used to help balance and stretch deeper (and safely) into yoga postures. Usually you will feel the stretches in your tighter/weakest muscles first. Your first couple classes may be intense, but if you continue to come to this class, you will notice big changes! This class can help build strength, relieve pain, release tension, increase flexibility, and prevent injury. Come join us Monday nights at 5:45pm. The studio will be heated for this class, so bring a water bottle. Your first class at the studio is free!
Look for the blue door marked #22 with a red buddha on it. We are in the same parking lot as the Yellow Barn.
