Yoga Wall - Asana Lab (semi-private, IN-STUDIO)
Tuesday, January 17, 6:00 - 7:00 pm
The Yoga Wall was invented by B.K.S. Iyengar to learn about the perfect alignment in Yoga poses.
In this session you will get a chance to study selected yoga poses with the help of this great yoga tool in a semi-private setting. And yes, you will have many AHHH….moments and you will fall in love with the yoga wall. A friend of mine called the class an “Asana Lab” (asana means poses)…this practice can be seen as well as the fine-tuning of yoga poses that you are familiar with. All levels class!

Group Online Classes - How does it work? (read more)
Sunday, January 1 - Sunday, December 31, check schedule
Since March 2020, the studio offers its group yoga classes in an online format. If you are interested to join a class, please send an email to email@example.com to receive the dial-in information or for further questions. Please read the following information below.
WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU START THE ONLINE YOGA SESSION:
Before joining the class YOU need to download the Zoom Meeting App. on your device. It doesn’t need to be an apple device, however it seems that a laptop or computer (bigger screen) is better than a smart phone for the presentation of the class. If the system ask you for Meeting ID and/or Password, please use the information that was emailed to you or click on the link in the invite.
It would be good if you could join the class 5 minutes before the session starts, in case there are questions in regard of the set up, audio, adjustment of your screen, etc. Also please have your practice space prepared before the class. The following yoga props are recommended for yoga online classes at Katrin Elia Yoga: a yoga mat, 2 same size yoga blocks, 1 strap and 2 blankets. For your first class, alternatives are ok. If you don’t have yoga props and you would like to purchase some, please contact the studio via email for further information.
Costs & Payment: All the online group classes are 60 minutes long (often a bit longer). Each class costs $20 per person. If an extra person joins your session, please let me know. Venmo (using the katrin-elia account) is recommended for class payment if you are a new student. Please send the payment before the class.
STAY HEALTHY – DO YOGA! (Katrin’s mantra).

This unique session is the perfect treat for yourself, receiving nourishment through sound healing, bodywork and deep relaxation ….Allyn Miner, the Philadelphia sitar player will set the tone with her beautiful play while relaxing & healing in Restorative Yoga poses. Restorative Yoga is a very gentle form of yoga. In this session we will practice the Judith Lasater method. The goal of this particular practice is to bring pure relaxation to our body and mind. The Marma Point Therapist will go from student to student to work on selected marma points. Marma Point Therapy is the Indian version of Acupressure. The practitioner will use fingers and a tuning fork to open marma points. Open marma points prevent sickness and disease.
No yoga experience needed! Come & enjoy!
