The City of Lake Charles Partners in Parks Initiative is teaming up with local yoga instructors to present Yoga in the Park this June.
Every Saturday morning in June, from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m., at Drew Park (416 Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive) the community is invited to come out and experience a free yoga session.
Various yoga instructors will be on-site, beginning at 8:15 a.m., each Saturday to provide guidance and answer any questions prior to the start of the class. All levels are welcome and interested participants are encouraged to arrive a bit ahead of the class's scheduled start time.
Participants should bring their own mat, towel, and water to the session. Instructions provided during the lessons are only suggestions. Participants should listen to their body and do what is best for the individual.
The complete schedule, with accompanying class descriptions, is as follows:
June 5 - Ryan Charles – Power Yoga Ryan Charles teaches a very popular yet unique style of power vinyasa yoga. He leans heavily on his background as a martial artist and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner for inspiration to tell the chapters of the story that is his yoga class. Namaste and enjoy friends.
June 12 – Stuart Cormier – Slow Flow This yoga session led by Stuart Cormier will be of the Slow Flow variety. This means that the practice will blend vinyasa-style movements on breath, but also some longer-held poses for time. This practice is accessible by all those that attend, from the newest beginner to the experienced practitioner. Let us breathe and move together, Lake Charles!
June 19 – Adelaide Saucier – Hatha Vinyasa Adelaide Saucier's class is inspired by hatha and vinyasa practices. The class will flow through a diverse range of poses pausing along the way to deepen awareness and intention. It is an energetic, yet accessible flow intended to awaken and revitalize the body, mind, and soul. All yogis are welcome and modifications will be given to allow the practitioner to design their ideal flow!
June 26 – Kristi Bult – Slow Flow Yoga for Freedom The practice is a slow flow to encourage freedom in the physical, emotional, and energetic bodies. A slow flow braids together classic yoga poses with movement and breath to build balance, flexibility, and strength. The sequence is suitable for all ability levels.
