Lysander Parks and Recreation: Registration for fall programming is underway

— Hatha Yoga

This class will be held from 7 to 8:15 p.m. Mondays from Sept. 24 to Oct. 22 at AM/PM Yoga Source Studio in Phoenix. Beginners welcome, no experience necessary. Class is appropriate for most ages, body types and experience levels. Each class will incorporate centering in the body and breath, warm-up stretches, a variety of yoga postures ending with a guided relaxation. Postures and holding times will be tailored to fitness level of the class. Yoga challenges the body and mind through stretching, relaxing and breathing while holding the postures. You will leave class feeling balanced, relaxed and energized.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa classes, which require intermediate level, previous yoga experience, will be offered from 9 to 10:15 a.m. Wednesdays (Sept. 26 to Oct. 24) or from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Thursdays (Sept. 27 to Oct. 25) at AM/PM Yoga Source Studio in Phoenix. The class heightens body awareness, strength and endurance. Vinyasa (Flow Yoga) is a class of continuous movement where one pose flows into another. The breath is synchronized with the movement and sets the length of the holding. This style is more aerobic and more challenging. No Vinyasa experience necessary but should have yoga experience and knowledge of proper alignment in yoga postures.
