|Class type:||Yoga for Runners: Stretch & Strengthen|
|Class description:||This special class is designed with the runner’s body in mind. The focus is on stretching the areas that are typically tight, including the hamstrings, IT band and hips; strengthening the weak areas, like the core and upper body; and restoring some of the typically sore areas like the lower back. Specific sets of postures and sequences make for a well-balanced class designed to build flexibility, stabilise the joints and centre the breath. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included.
Suitable for runners with or without yoga experience.
|Class level:|| Gentle|
|Jessie went to her first yoga class in 2000 as a high school student. At the time, it helped Jessie find steadiness as a student, athlete and teenager. Since then, she has used yoga as a teaching and a tool to balance her many roles as mother of 3, wife, sister, daughter, friend, student, runner, environmental lawyer, college counsellor, amateur chef, baker, music junkie, and lover of life.|
Jessie's penchant for travel and study (and never living in one place for long) granted her the opportunity to practise with a wide array of brilliant teachers in different traditions including Ashtanga, Anusara, Bikram, Bhakti Urban Flow, Forrest Yoga, Hatha, Iyengar, Power Vinyasa and Yin. The teachers along Jessie's travels and studies have inspired her to embark on a path and way of life that requires compassion, gratitude, patience, mindfulness, strength, dedication, and most importantly, a willingness to serve others.
Jessie became a teacher in 2006. She teaches yoga from the heart, helping her students ground themselves by accessing strength and lightness from within. Come to class, jam to tunes, move with grace, find inner peace and leave inspired!
