Salute to the Sun. Sun Salutations in Nederland Beaumont Texas. Yoga for Beginners

salutethesun300a

One of the flyers I pass out to my Beginners Yoga class.  All of these poses have modifications, especially if there are lack of flexibility challenges, and people wanting to use the chair to assist down to the floor.  Adaptive Beginning Yoga to help you gain your wellness goals!  Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177

Depicted here are the kids version of the Salute to the Sun.  Typically kids and young adults have the ability to do yoga poses with little or no modification.  But, usually these groups do not have the awareness of their bodies, and as a teacher, you should still coach them to be aware of alignment, posture, and placement for a good overall safe yoga practice.  Go YogaKiddos!

Sequence of poses for the salute to the sun with additionally demonstrating Warrior I, Reverse Warrior and Side Angle Pose.  All done at the Beginner Level to help you toward your wellness goals.  Even on the chair there are Advance, Intermediate and Beginning versions of poses.

Call Gail Pickens-Barger, Experienced Beginning Adaptive Yoga Teacher.  If you don’t like my classes, or the fit isn’t just right, I will find you a class or teacher to help you on your path to your wellness goals.  409-727-3177.  Thank you!


 

Why do people come to yoga? Nederland, Beaumont Texas

  5. Physical Fitness/Getting Better In…
  6. Strength
  7. Mental Health

So most people start yoga because they want to improve some aspect of their health and wellbeing.  The survey sure does indicate this!

FINDING THE RIGHT TEACHER:
The problem is most yoga teachers teach to the 35 and under crowd.

Most yoga teachers haven’t been trained to teach people who don’t fit the traditional YOGA BODY model.

For example, students who are:

  • Over the age of 40
  • Overweight
  • Living a sedentary lifestyle
  • Inexperienced in fitness training

So what are the barriers people have to over come to get started?

  • Unsure if it’s right for me.
  • Do not know how to get started.
  • I don’t exercise.
  • No place to go to
  • I feel out of place

Take the first step, give me a call, Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177.  I teach yoga for beginners.  Plus I teach yoga for those who don’t like the idea of getting down on the ground (Chair Yoga).

Two classes available for you to try, or private one-on-one sessions in your home.

What do you need?

  1. A desire to improve some aspect of your health and well being!

I teach beginners yoga at Wesley United Methodist Church, 3515 Helena Avenue, Nederland, Texas.  On Mondays at 6:15 PM, you’ll need a yoga mat, and a $10 fee.

Additionally I teach Chair Yoga on Thursdays at 10:00 AM, either a $5 donation or a specific donation of food for our church’s back pack food ministry.

Questions?  Please call me on my home phone at 409-727-3177.

A little something about me. I am 58 years old, and have been teaching yoga now for over 18 years.  My favorite class is to teach yoga to someone who is new to this unique exercise format.  Either with the assist of using a Chair, or using the yoga mat, where we get up and down off the ground (I often use a chair in this format too!).

Beginners Yoga, and we use the chair in some of our balance poses, or assist in getting down onto the floor.
