Yoga Classes with Marcela
Nourish THE MIND, BODY & SOUL WITH YIN YOGA
New session begins in September after Labor Day.
LOCATION: 530 College Pkwy, Annapolis, MD 21409
DAY/TIME: Mondays from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
In my classes, I combine the practice of Yin Yoga and mindfulness meditation to create possibilities for transformation and healing on all levels—body, mind, and heart. Yin yoga is a slower-paced style of yoga. A class consists of a series of passive floor poses that are typically held for 3-5 minutes. Yin Yoga can bring a noticeable increase to our body’s range of motion by working beneath the muscles to target the deep connective tissues of the body. Additionally, this practice gives you the time and space to steady the mind, reduce stress or anxiety, and cultivate calmness, clarity, and equanimity. Yin Yoga is for all levels. Beginners are welcome!
Treat yourself for one hour to slow down, drop in, and let go.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
I learned early in my yoga experience that there was much more to yoga than just the physical practice. Yoga gave me a sense of calmness and clarity. Through the dedicated practice of yoga, I felt grounded, balanced and stronger, both physically and emotionally. This inspired me to begin teaching yoga in 2012, later completing my 500-hr training, as well as a Dr. Sears Health Coach Certification. I recently became a certified Brain Longevity® Specialist with The Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation and I’m currently enrolled in a 160-hr Meditation Teacher Training program.
Additionally, I am a certified Yin Yoga Teacher. I was honored to be at the filming of Yin Yoga: The Functional Approach by Paul Grilley. This is a wonderful comprehensive online certification program for yoga instructors. I also completed a 50-hour Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation Module with Josh Summers. This training gave me the tools and knowledge to integrate meditation into my teaching of Yin Yoga. For more details about my journey, please click here: Marcela’s Story.
I look forward to seeing you in class! Namaste.
