Stacy Pitman Edwards just completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training course and is excited to share her yoga knowledge with Minden.
“Yoga has helped me greatly on and off my mat,” said Edwards. “I love a physical challenge and the strategies it provides to slow down in this fast-paced world. I am excited to teach and share my love of yoga.”
She will be hosting her very first Yoga 101 Workshop at the Minden High Gymnasium next Tuesday, June 28. This workshop will be a 60-minute Vinyasa flow class geared towards beginners who are interested in developing skills needed in order to begin their own yoga practice.
Edwards will be concentrating on the Sun Salutation series, the names and benefits of each pose. She will address proper alignment and modifications using props to make poses accessible.
“I want each person to walk away from the class feeling successful and empowered,” said Edwards.
Edwards has plans to offer various types of yoga classes on a weekly basis.
“I will be teaching a Yin Yoga workshop soon,” she said. “Yin is a restorative yoga practice that focuses on turning inward and improving flexibility. It is a very relaxing style of yoga.”
Her future endeavors include eventually opening her own yoga studio in Minden.
The Yoga Workshop begins at 6 p.m. and is available to the public with a class fee of $10. Participants will only be required to bring a mat and water. Straps and blocks will be provided.
