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.

Reduce your Holiday Stress!

How To Eliminate Holiday Stress

The Christmas season has just begun and already people are stressed.

The economy is in the toilet. The banks are failing.

But the bank executives are having huge pay days.

Every one is watching their credit card bills go up
and their stress is going through the roof.

There’s a simple easy solution that will eliminate your stress – guaranteed.

It’s called yoga.

It can be anything from slow gentle movement to vigorous sweat
pouring down off your forehead practice.

You know some of the people who do yoga every day:

Sting, Madonna, and Donna Karran.

But many more people do it not to look like a million bucks
but because they want to feel better.

In one yoga session, you can eliminate stress from your
life and in coming sessions, I’ll show you how to keep it away
forever.

So if you’re feeling stressed, come to the free yoga class
on December 1st, 7 p.m at Wesley United Methodist Church
in Nederland Texas.

All I ask that you bring is two food items
of Oatmeal, so that we can share our blessings with those
that are less fortunate. The Oatmeal will go to the United
Board Missions to be distributed to those who need food
during this season. (If you are unable to bring oatmeal,
a small monetary donation would be great! I’ll purchase
oatmeal with your donation.)
