Join Us for Our Day After Thanksgiving Class

Our special Day After Thanksgiving Class has become a fun tradition at Harmony Yoga of Ann Arbor! Instead of subjecting ourselves to the frenzied crowds of shoppers on Black Friday, we join together to do something healthy for ourselves with other like-minded people.  We’ll do it again this year, November 27 2015.

See Day After Thanksgiving Class for registration and payment information.  

This two-hour class will include a sequence of active standing and seated twists, along with other compatible poses during the first hour, followed by a quieter hour of seated and supine poses and some simple pranayama (breath work).

  • 10:00 – 11:00  First hour – Focus on Twists – Active Class
  • 11:00 – 11:10  Short break
  • 11:10 – 12:10  Second hour – Focus on Quieting Poses

Twisting poses, both standing and seated, are beneficial for digestion. They massage and “wring out” the organs, helping to keep things moving through the digestive tract.  We’ll do other poses that also aid the digestive system and are compatible with twists, as time allows.  You will work hard in this class!

A quiet practice, such as what we’ll do during the second hour, is a good way to de-stress after your busy Thanksgiving Day, especially as we head into the hectic holiday season.  You’ll leave feeling physically and mentally relaxed.

These classes are meant to be for anyone who is interesting in participating.   A working knowledge of Iyengar Yoga is useful.  If you don’t have Iyengar Yoga experience but would like to join us, come with a willingness to practice the poses as I teach them (to your capability), which will not necessarily be what you’re used to.  Contact me if you have questions.

Since not everyone will want to do the full two hour class, I’ve scheduled it so you can choose between the more active first hour or the quieter second hour.

There is room for 20 people in this class.   Please register and pay early to reserve your space.  Dropping in is not recommended.

I hope you can join us!
