Yoga on the Ridge’s classes specialize in working with back injuries, Parkinson's disease, and excess stress. Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease, for example, is taught by professional therapist Therea Conroy and focuses exclusively on improving posture and gait in PD patients, improving their flexibility, strength, and balance. Newbies, meanwhile, can get up to speed on the fundamentals of alignment, breathing, and basic yogic positions (asanas) such as Downward Facing Dog, Sun Salutation, and Kneel Before Zod in Yoga Basics. The more meditative Vinyasa Yoga links movement, breath, and intention into one continuous flow amidst an atmosphere of readings, music, and movement. The meditative, intense Yin Yoga teaches you to hold asanas for five to ten minutes at a time until you’re covered in pigeons who’ve mistaken you for statuary. Finally, the overstressed can quiet their minds and become more aware of their mind-body-spirit connection, Chinese connection, and rainbow connection during Yoga for Stress Relief.
