Since 2009, Abbey has been hosting a Thanksgiving morning yoga class at YCSC from 9:00-10:30. The class is donation-based benefiting a non-profit or cause in Santa Cruz county. This year I would like nothing more than to continue this tradition and I hope you will join me. The beneficiary this year will be a new coalition called The Welcoming Network. The Welcoming Network is composed of a group of volunteers dedicated to helping asylum seekers and other refugees in the Santa Cruz community. In order to keep everyone safe, the yoga class will be taught on zoom. If you already are a student at Yoga Center Santa Cruz (YCSC) and would like to come in person, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am allowing my students to attend as well as other YCSC students if there is sufficient space. Vaccines and masks are required.

TRE is a simple, gentle and profound technique that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional tension and stress. The TRE exercises mildly tire the legs, triggering an involuntary shaking and trembling response, which begins in the legs and often spreads throughout the body.Reported benefits include:
Pranayama is the art and science of breath. With experience in Asana the natural progression is to explore the subtleties and rhythms of the breath through techniques to both in elongate inhalations, exhalations, and eventually retain the breath.
Pranayama I will continue with monthly classes: the first Sunday of the month. Participants must have completed Series I - III or have Iyengar Pranayama experiences. Please contact Lori directly with questions email@example.com or visit workshops for information, Workshops.
At YCSC, our approach emphasizes precise alignment and develops strength, flexibility, stamina and balance. Through regular practice, students gain physical health, mental peace and emotional stability. Currently, all of our classes are online.
Hopefully, in time we will be able to offer in-person classes again. Yoga Center Santa Cruz offers 35 classes a week in Iyengar-style hatha yoga from beginner to advanced levels. Our studio features 2 spacious rooms and is well equipped with the essential props i.e. mats, sandbags, blankets, etc.
Join us and experience the difference!
Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
