MEN'S CORE STRENGTH YOGA
Monday, 9/18, 6:30-7:45 pm &
Saturday, 9/23 10:00-11:15 am
As men age, stress, gravity, and neglect of the body conspire to cause us to
collapse inward. We close ourselves off to life. In this dynamic,
powerful, gentle, and fun class you'll learn to open from the inside out -
to strengthen, lengthen, and enjoy your core. This class is for men with
diverse abilities, ages, shapes, colors, orientations, and backgrounds (must
be able to walk up & down stairs because NW Portland studio is not
wheelchair accessible). Instructor Charles Airey has studied yoga for about
25 years, became a certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor 20 years ago, and has
taught in various studios in South Florida & Southern California.

relief, becoming calmer & more focused, etc.) and/or self-treat chronic
ailments (like back/neck pain, insomnia/anxiety, allergies, depression, HIV,

walking practice twice a month, on-going support for establishing your own
regular meditation practice, and the fellowship of other men from diverse
backgrounds who are interested in meditation and mindfulness.
