Yoga for Resiliency

Yoga with Sherri

About this class

I created Yoga for Resiliency to share with people the different ways yoga movement, meditation, and breath practices help us to experience optimal well-being. This class arises out of my own experience with yoga being an essential tool in living with chronic pain and complex PTSD.

Sometimes we focus on movements that are more restorative and gentle, other times we're exploring more vigorous movement and balancing postures. Either way, there are always plenty of options for everyone to explore what feels best for their own body. Guided meditation is offered at the beginning in a comfortable seated, or lying down position. It is also offered at the end in a restorative position.

Who is this activity for?

This class honors the needs of other neurodivergent folks and those who live with chronic health conditions while also making room for people who want a gentle class that lets them explore yoga beyond the postures. We welcome all levels and vary instruction depending on the students that arrive and how they are feeling.

What is provided?

All props provided: yoga mats, blocks, straps, sandbags, bolsters, and blankets. Chairs are also available. The studio has wool-blend blankets. However, I'm happy to bring cotton blankets if you sign-up in advance and let me know they need one (e.g., allergy, sensory sensitivity, vegan, etc.).

What should you bring?

If you prefer your own mat, please bring it. Some students like to bring a small towel or scarf to put over bolsters we use during restorative postures. Feel free to bring anything that helps you feel comfortable during movement and guided meditation.
