You cannot achieve true wellness with a body, mind, and spirit that is out of balance. At Total Wellness of New Jersey, we feel that exercise, meditation, and proper breathing techniques are all very important to achieve optimal health. That is why we added yoga classes to our wellness services. Yoga is an incredibly effective method of promoting healing of the body while simultaneously developing peace and harmony of the mind.
Donna Guarino, RYT, is Total Wellness of NJ’s yoga teacher. She completed 200 hours of training to receive her credentials as registered yoga teacher through the Yoga Alliance, the largest international nonprofit association in the yoga community. Donna first discovered yoga ten years ago and fell in love with the gentle practice. Today, she offers two classes to our Total Wellness of NJ family as well as anyone else in the community who wants to reap the many benefits yoga offers.
The yoga classes we offer here are known as Hatha Flow classes, which combine the gentleness of Hatha yoga with the flowing style of Vinyasa. This is a breath-centered practice that focuses on coordinating your breath with the flowing movement of the poses. Though it may sound intimidating, these classes are actually perfect for beginners.
Flow and Restore: Tuesdays, 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm
This is a mixed-level yoga class that focuses on relaxing, unwinding, and rejuvenating. Beginners are welcome, as are more advanced yogis. The wonderful thing about yoga is that you are encouraged to go at your own pace, so this class is perfect for anyone looking for a slow, gentle yoga practice that restores both body and mind.
Yoga 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Yoga: Saturdays, 8:15 am to 9:30 am
This class is geared toward anyone who is new to yoga; however, all levels of practitioners are welcome. In this class we’ll focus on the names of the most common yoga poses and how to do them properly, as well as on learning how to coordinate your body’s movement with your breath.
