Yoga is for every body. Yoga is about turning away from the external as you tune into your own body. You listen to your body as you move into a pose by supporting it with what it needs to stretch beyond it’s current limit and stay in proper alignment. You learn to align your breathe with your movement which automatically relaxes you as you learn to control your breathe. You are motivated to deep breath in Toni’s class by inhaling your choice of essential oil. Toni sells Döterra therapeutic grade essential oils.
toni b specializes in first time yoga students who describe themselves as inflexible and may even say that they “can’t do yoga.” Typical students are between the ages of 40 to 80 and delights in helping them develop body awareness.
Often, students ask Toni how to integrate meditation into their lives. Her planner, The Intentional Planner, provides affirmations and intentions on a weekly basis with which to meditate. Purchase your planner https://www.tonibyoga.com/product/planner/
Toni teaches a Hatha style of yoga, which means students will hold a pose for longer before moving into the next pose. Each pose is demonstrated by Toni first and as you move into the pose, Toni provides verbal cues with how to get into proper alignment. Classes are typically small and intimate to provide customized instruction as well as include meditation, visualization, deep breathing/pranayama, and essential oils within the hour experience.
