This spring spend your April Tuesday mornings at Ger-Nis with Sparkes Wellness stretching, posing and energizing. Yoga: Head to Toe is a series of classes devoted to dissecting yoga poses from an anatomical perspective. You will learn the structure of the body through a vinyasa (flowing) and alignment-based practice. Each class will focus on a specific body part and we will explore how that area fits in to your full body practice and after a hard month of yoga practice we will sit and enjoy a healthy meal prepared by Ger-Nis’ own health guru, Nissa. Breakfast will be on Tuesday April 24th at 9 am until 10 am.
Classes will be on Tuesdays April 3rd, April 10th, April 17th, and April 24th, 2012.
Recipes:Final Breakfast: Dandelion Mint Smooties, Egg Whites and Herbs, Wholegrain Toasts with Fresh Rhubarb Jam.
Class Type: Special Event
Class Notes: Come to yoga all month long at Ger-Nis and on the last day of class enjoy a healthy breakfast afterwards!
