There are many around us who are unable to be in a typical traditional yoga class, even an Easy or a Beginner Yoga Class, due to a wide range of reasons.

  • They have never really exercised before besides walking
  • They are recovering from injuries but their doctors have advised them to stretch and strengthen gently to build their muscles and joints.
  • They have aging bodies, as those in our elderly and senior citizens, that need to exercise in a much gentler manner

When such health issues hit home, we realized an urgent need for a Gentle Yoga Class, which we like calling our Body Building Block Class For The Beginners In Exercise, for in this Wellness Haven Class we actually stretch and strengthen every part of the body form the head to the toe, BUT very gently, in a manner that ALL can handle and build themselves gradually over a course of a few months.
