UPCOMING SPECIAL CLASSES
Short Series, One-Time Workshops, and Special Classes
Sundays in April
12:30 - 1:45pm
This series is typically offered once a season or more. However, as Devin prepares for the delivery of their child in May, we do not foresee this series being offered in the summer. It may not return until late fall or early winter so if you are pregnant now we suggest attending this run!
Prenatal yoga can help to prepare for delivery, bond mom and baby, and support moms after delivery with mindfulness, stretching and strengthening exercises, and community. Prenatal yoga is appropriate for those with or without yoga experience and adapts poses, breathing, and relaxation techniques to pregnant women. This class is appropriate for all stages of pregnancy with approval of your healthcare provider for exercise. No prior yoga experience needed.
This class is run virtually during COVID for the 4 week series. It is strongly suggested that participants have two yoga blocks and a blanket to use at home for this class. Participants will receive a manual for modifying their yoga practice while pregnant. $5 from every participant is donated to Berkshire Nursing Families.
Class is instructed by Devin Raber who has been leading Prenatal Yoga classes for over 3 years. She is a certified by Blooma Yoga in prenatal style, an ACE certified personal trainer, and co-owner of North Adams Yoga.

MINI BANDS FOR YOGA
Thursday, April 8, 6:00pm
Regular Class Price
Must have Mini Bands (any brand!)
Asana is an incomplete movement system. Unless otherwise balanced with exercise or functional movement it can lead to injury. This class helps prevent that. This class also uses mini bands to assist some poses like a prop that you can use in a regular class and help you gather strength for poses! Instructed by Devin.
TAPAS: YOGA PHILOSOPHY CLASS

6:00pm | Included in Unlimited or $7 Drop-In
Yoga is more than movement, it is an energetic and moral guidance to connect to our highest self. This workshop covers the third niyama, Tapas. Not movement based, no experience required.
