According to 2016 Yoga in America Study Conducted by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance Reveals Growth and Benefits of the Yoga Practice.
Improve Overall Health
Physical Fitness/Getting Better In…
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
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?
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 with International Yoga Teacher, Gail Pickens-Barger, Nederland, Texas Mondays at 6:15 pm
Getting a lot of inquiries about the Beginners Yoga class, starting back up on January 8th at 6:15 PM at Wesley UMC, 3515 Helena Avenue, Nederland, Texas 77627. $10
Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!
What to bring to beginners yoga class. Held in the foyer, of the Sanctuary Building at 3515 Helena
Avenue, Nederland, Texas at Wesley UMC. It is the most northern building on the church property.
A Yoga Mat
Bottle of water (optional)
A note on comfortable clothing:
Now some people wear layers on the top part of their body. Because we do a pose called Downward Facing Dog. It looks like we are an upside down letter, “V”. When that happens and if you do not have a snug fitting shirt,
the shirt will ride up the back side and sometimes tummy part of your body.
I wear a tank top under my t-shirt, so if this happens, I know that I am not showing any skin.
Come a bit early to register, get your yoga props (a strap,a block, sometimes a blanket) and your spot.
Please put phones on silent.
p.s. Here’s a pic of my daughter doing Downward Facing Dog. Notice her shirt riding up?
