Gentle Yoga with Diane and Christy
Thursdays from 12:00 – 1:00 PM
A gentle yoga class combining the Iyengar style and myofascial release principles to help improve flexibility, alignment, and overall sense of well-being. Accessible to all.
Christy Lesher, RYT-200
Christy found her way onto the yoga path shortly after her youngest son was born in 2009, seeking a place and space that was just her own among the weekly flow of family, work, and homestead responsibilities. Since then she has found her practice serves not only her, but also all those who continue to swirl in her circle of influence. When practice is consistent and strong, she is at her best for herself and those she loves. Since her first class she has tried all different sorts of yoga, but her home base on the yoga path is in the Iyengar tradition. “As a graduate of the Open Sky Yoga Teacher Training, I am so excited that I can now help facilitate others’ coming, going, and wending down the yoga path. I look forward to welcoming you to a class where we can focus in on a deep study of the poses, find an ease in the poses through proper alignment, and reunite our mind to body to breath. Through grounding, we ascend!”
Diane Hibbard, RYT-200, LMT
Diane is a graduate of Open Sky’s Essential Teacher Training program taught by Francois Raoult in Rochester, NY and is a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR I, II, Fascial-Pelvis, Myofascial Mobilization, Myofascial Unwinding, Myofascial Patient Seminars). Repetitive strain and physical and emotional trauma can often lead to fascial restrictions that pull our bodies out of alignment, causing stress, anxiety, and pain. Diane incorporates her knowledge of fascia and the body’s relaxation response with Iyengar-style yoga to help individuals release restrictions, restore their sense of calm, and strengthen their capacity for overall health and well-being.
