MEN'S CORE STRENGTH YOGA
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.
After your free introductory class, you decide how much to donate per class
(sliding scale). Why try to achieve your wellness resolutions on your own,
when you can get the warm, affirming, practical support of men who share
your aims and are experienced in helping one another fulfill them.
