Schedule

I personally offer six (6) "senior" yoga classes in East County that are all free of charge (donations are accepted but never required). The are called "Flex" classes for those familiar with Silver Sneakers programs, or "ActiveOptions" for those familiar with Silver&Fit.

These classes are open to all ages, all levels. They are chair-based and combine multiple yoga styles to best provide what the class needs on any given day. Mat users welcome to bring their own. Choose to stay seated or follow in our standing sequences. Modifications are offered to increase and decrease intensity as requested. We aim for a good stretch, a bit of a workout, and some valuable mind-quiet time, all to help reinforce that ever important connection between your body and your mind.

Our general class schedule (excluding holidays or other room availability issues) is:

Mondays 1:00-1:45 pm
El Cajon Library
201 E. Douglas Avenue, El Cajon

Tuesdays 8:30-9:30 am
La Mesa Library
8074 Allison Avenue, La Mesa

Wednesdays 9:30-10:30 am
Tifereth Israel Synagogue Social Hall
6660 Cowles Mountain Blvd., San Diego 92119

Wednesdays 12:00-1:00 pm 
Casa de Oro Library 
9805 Campo Road #180, Spring Valley

No classes in August
TIME CHANGE STARTING 9/6: 
Fridays 12:00-1:00 pm 
Lemon Grove Library 
3001 School Lane, Lemon Grove

Saturdays 8:30-9:30 am 
La Mesa Library
8074 Allison Avenue, La Mesa

Each class includes breathing practices (pranayama), postures (asana) rooted in functional movement, yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology information, and of course relaxation (savasana) and meditation. They incorporate flexibility exercises that can improve posture, increase the range of motion around joints, and improve agility and gait. Muscular strength exercises can slow the cellular aging process, and improve muscle mass to increase an overall sense of vitality and improve balance and coordination.

Check the ONLINE calendar for updates and changes to be sure the class is meeting that week - esp. around holiday times. If there is no class listed on the live schedule (where there is usually a class) there is probably a scheduled class cancellation - you can always email me or call the site to verify. Also check the Library calendars for more information: http://host.evanced.info/sdcl/evanced/eventcalendar.asp
