It’s as if Bernal Yoga knows exactly what I need

It had been a week since I had been to yoga class and I went yesterday and felt completely transformed. One of the reasons was because I held certain asanas for a bit of time and was given the chance to actually feel the tissues in my body stretch and spread, releasing all the tension I had held in during these work days and colder evenings. In just a few minutes, a new class will be starting at Bernal that speaks directly to this need: Candlelight Yin with Caroline Kelley.

Firstly, it’s in candlelight. How can that not be a wonderful way to end your day and really rest into your body? Secondly, it does what I responded so well to yesterday, allows for some deep relaxation and offers an awareness of our inner workings, both physical and mental, as we really rest into a pose and hold it for a while, noticing our breath, the changes in our body, the feeling of stretching and opening and releasing. Like me, I am sure many of us work at our desks all day holding it in and by the sounds of it, this class allows us to just let go and extend ourselves and our bodies in the warmth of candlelight and with the guidance of a seasoned teacher, Caroline Kelley, who has learned and practiced yoga all over the world. Like the title of this post suggests, it’s as if Bernal knew exactly what I and so many of us need.

Bernal continues to offer new things all the time including Grey Wedeking’s Yoga Lab: Yoga for Athletes. That’s coming up the 12th and looks like an amazing workshop for athletes, of which there are so many in the Bay Area. Grey will guide practitioners on how to gain awareness on flexibility, balance and awareness while strengthening our alertness, particularly for athletes looking to strengthen certain muscles and bring stability to joints, things key to a strong and developing athletes. Sounds like a great class for everybody! Especially athletes.

Bernal Yoga! Always offering something new to present us with e chance to develop and grow.
