Gentle Yoga Workshop

Taught by Susan Seiter

Susan's workshop provides a safe, effective, compassionate, non-competitive environment that is welcoming to all.

 Gentle-style yoga  serves a variety of distinct needs: people with movement limitations, or profound stiffness due to lack of activity; relief from disabilities and chronic conditions e.g., arthritis, back pain and other musculoskeletal issues; recovery from surgery, illness or injury; for seniors, new practitioners, women who are pregnant and those seeking stress-reduction or weight management. A gentle yoga approach has even been found to be an important complement in programs to reverse heart disease or provide relief from the challenging conditions of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, as well as mood disorders.

This course is appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice. This approach includes carefully orchestrated movements, controlled pressure, and well-measured stretches, including range of motion exercises. Postures are taught in gradual steps, with plenty of time to focus on breathing and repetition so that the practice is simple to do and easy to remember. Susan's gentle yoga style encourages a highly individualized approach to practice with on-going encouragement to make moment-to-moment adjustments.

Sue Seiter, E-RYT, has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and is registered with Yoga Alliance. She also holds a Level 3 Yoga certification from AAAI/IMSA as well as Personal Training and Group Exercise certifications with AFTA. Sue teaches all levels of yoga with an emphasis on connecting mind, body and breath. Her belief is that Yoga is something you can do for a lifetime if you are taught the proper alignment and adjustments with emphasis on listening to your own body. Her goal for her students is finding balance awareness and peace through her teachings both on and off the mat. Sue is forever indebted to all her teachers and to her many students who continue to be her teachers as well
