Outdoor Small-Group Series with Richard Guevara at Mercerdale Park
Jun 30, 2020| $120
Join Richard for an outdoor small-group 4-week yoga series! We will meet once per week on Tuesdays at 10am at Mercerdale Park on Mercer Island.
Through this series we will work on spinal stability & awareness. Having the awareness and the strength to maintain spinal stability enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of all our bodily movements.
The more spinal awareness and stability we have, the more we can progress — and the healthier and balanced our progress — in flexibility and strength of hips, shoulders, and so on.
Think of this series as a way to think long term in your practice vs short term adjustments. We will work on functional mobility, strength building and increasing proprioception through the three planes of the body.
The biggest question we will ask ourselves is how does my core support me in movement and in everyday life? Let’s join together again (6 feet apart, of course) to practice with one another, learn from one another, and be in community. See you on the mat!
This is a small-group series so you will receive plenty of individualized support from your instructor.
*Students will be spaced out 6 feet from one another. Masks will be required until you arrive on your mat and the practice begins. In accordance with the CDC and Yoga Alliance recommendations, there will be no-hands on adjustments from your instructor.
*Minimum of 4 students to order to hold a series.
*If inclement weather proves problematic, we will have a plan b established and agreed upon with the group.
Date & Time: Jun. 30th, 2020 – Jul 21st, 2020 @10am – 11:05am
Tuition: $120 for all 4 sessions

He also aims to have his students leave his class energized with renewed or continued faith in their ability to find comfort and release in his sessions.
