Gentle Vinyasa Yoga is a slower paced practice with less intense positions, and includes extended time for meditation, yogic breath work and relaxation. A gentle class includes more warm up movements and the yoga postures are often held for longer times. A slower and gentler practice of yoga allows you to move at a comfortable pace and creates less strain on your muscles and joints. A gentler style of yoga calms the nervous system so that the parasympathetic nervous system can be engaged. This encourages better digestion, a decrease in stress levels, and an enhanced ability to relax and heal. Students will focus on stretching and breathing in the hopes of reaching a state of rejuvenation. Ages 16+, all levels welcome, no experience necessary.
DURATION: 1 hour
ATTIRE: comfy clothes that allow for flexible movement, bare feet or socks
WHAT TO BRING: your beautiful self, yoga mat, water
About Lynette: Lynette first found yoga as a way to complete a PE credit in college, but it wasn’t until 2016 after a spinal surgery when she found hot yoga and fell in love, not only with the practice but with herself again. Lynette’s goal as a yoga teacher is to meet each student with love, just as they are. She works to help them connect more deeply with themselves and find the healing that comes through yoga. Lynette is also certified in Sound Healing and incorporates sound into most of her yoga classes. Outside of the yoga studio, Lynette is a full-time university professor and an LPC who sees clients for a variety of mental health concerns. Lynette was an army brat, but she has always called St. Louis home. Go Cards! Lynette and her husband, Rob, have been together for over 25 years, and Rob loves to join her classes.
