Hatha Yoga

Paula Strupeck Gardner has worked with yoga as a therapeutic medium with people with conditions such as MS, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, COPD, and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as day-to-day aches and pains of the lower back, shoulders, feet, and knees, anxiety and depression. If you’re breathing, you can do yoga. Experience for yourself how yoga helps you restore energy, soothe tired muscles, aches, and pains, and find greater calm in our busy, fast-paced world. Feel its positive effects on reducing stress and increasing focus. Come and relax. Classes are tailored to participants. Participants need to bring a yoga mat and a blanket and to be able to get up and down from the floor. Chair yoga is now available for those who cannot.

Chair Yoga

Want to relax with yoga, but getting up and down from the floor keeps you away? Yoga instructor Paula Gardner is offering sessions of Chair Yoga here at McCord! What’s Chair Yoga? You’ll do yoga poses sitting in the chair. You’ll use the chair for support of standing poses. You’ll practice relaxation techniques in the chair, and in the end, you’ll have the option of final relaxation on the floor. You enjoy the same incredible benefits of “regular” yoga – strengthen- ing, flexibility, de-stressing, etc. This is ideal for folks recovering from injury or surgery, with hip replacements, knee injuries, severe arthritis, MS, lupus, RA, and who want to learn how to relax at their desks!

Refund and Makeup Policy

Refunds will be given before a session starts. Once the first class of a session has begun, there will be no refunds for that session.

A make-up class will be arranged if an instructor cancels a class. If a student misses a class, there are no refunds for that class. A make-up class can be arranged during that same session by the instructor if space is available in another class. Make-up classes will not be rolled over into a new session.
