Yoga & Meditation Snacks (Livestream in the zoom room)

“Yoga Snacks” are 30/45-minute targeted practices. They will always include intention setting to begin and svasana meditation to finish. Easy to fit in your day, long-lasting afterglow. If you miss the yoga snack, there will be a library of classes available for you to use at your leisure. All times posted are ET.

Easy Flow: A slow moving practice of traditional and non-traditional sun and/or moon salutations or possibly other creative combinations of poses (asanas) linking movement to breath. Always starting with setting an intention and finishing with short svasana meditation. Sample Easy Flow class on Youtube.

Yoga Basics: SPECIAL MAY-JUNE session that will be part discussion and part practice. What are the different types of yoga? Why do we do salutations? How can we make some of the basic poses easier to access? How can we play with some common transitions? What props might make poses more accessible? How and why should we bring self-compassion to the mat? Bring a curious mind to this unique 8-week session. (Tuesday evenings though May and June only.) Full 8-week session available in the video library.

Krama HIIT: In Sanskrit the idea of progression is krama. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a cardiorespiratory workout alternating high intensity bursts of movement with slower active recovery periods. In this practice we’ll combine the idea of progressions with HIIT. Each practice will include 3-5 HIIT series. Each of these series will make use of a different intensity movement and before each series, we’ll review at least 2-4 progressions of the intensity movement so that you can find your sweet spot of challenge. Choose the progression that helps you achieve peak cardiorespiratory challenge during the HIIT work phases of each series. The concept of krama allows this cardiorespiratory practice to be fun and accessible for people of all fitness levels. Not being held Sept-Oct 2021, several practices available in the Video Library. Sample Krama HIIT class on Youtube.

Easy Flow with Breath & Meditation: New for Sept-Oct session of 2021. A slow moving practice of traditional and non-traditional sun and/or moon salutations balanced with breath and meditation practice.

Gentle Hatha: A beautiful slow practice similar to the Hatha class described below with warming movement sequences that do not include salutation flows. Sample Gentle Hatha class on Youtube.

Hatha: Any yoga class that adds movement to the traditional meditation practice of ancient yoga is really Hatha yoga. In this class we will practice a version that is commonly seen in North America in which we use a flow sequence in the early part of the practice to warm up muscles and lubricate joints, then work toward one or two peak asanas allowing you  to explore more deeply where you can take your body in movement. Sample Hatha class on Youtube.

Yoga Stretch for Walkers: NEW for fall 2021! This Yoga Snack is included in your registration for one or more of the Virtual Walk Challenges. If you just want to enjoy this Snack alone, without the walking challenge, you’ll find an option for registration below.

Strength Snacks (in the zoom room)

“Strength Snacks” are 30-minute workouts that maximize the relationship between time and results! We use resistance bands, hand weights, and body weight to build muscle power in your core, upper body, and lower body. The focus is often on the muscles of the posterior chain (back of the body) to build functional strength and to improve posture.

Yoga classes with Lee are wonderful – a beginner feels welcome, learns, and is motivated to keep going. Meanwhile, yoga experts are encouraged and led to even stronger yoga practice. Highly recommended.
Nancy R. Oakville

Lee is the walking coach’s coach. She has created a thorough curriculum that breaks down the walking pattern into four basic progressions, each presented with helpful cues and takeaways. Not only will you be a better walking coach at the end of the eight week course, you will be a stronger walking athlete yourself.
Katie D., Austin, TX

Lee’s coaching makes all the difference for power walkers at all levels. Her proven methods of interval training and hill work, combined with her positive attitude and decades of experience, will prepare you for any race. Her great advice to “trust the training” carried me through a recent marathon.  Above all, her classes are fun, friendly and inclusive.
