Tom Gillette

Tom Gillette has done it all, as far as yoga is concerned. In his classes, he likes to laugh a lot and drop into still meditative places. Tom has made many trips to India, owned four yoga studios over the last 27 years, directed 34 yoga teacher trainings, certified over 750 yoga teachers and sometimes lived an austere life in four yoga ashrams. What little he does teach now, he does it for the pure joy and the sweetness it brings.


Tom Gillette instructs the following:
  • Meditation
  • Meditating with others is great way to anchor your practice and effect change. Session may include simple guidance and/or breathwork. No experience necessary. This is a free community offering.

  • Meditative Yoga
  • This is one of our Focused classes.

    This slow-moving class focuses attention on the meditative qualities of the practice.

    Begin in a restorative posture, to consciously let go of tension in the body and clear the mind. Move into breath work and mantra to sharpen attention and receive feedback from the inner body. Invite meditation into the process as you progress through a selection of postures designed to keep you present, curious and calm to all that arises.

    Each class offers a new teaching or yogic practice to stimulate the intellect. All levels are welcome.


  • Healthy Shoulders
  • This is one of our Focused classes.

     

    Most of us carry tension and stress in our upper bodies: shoulders, chest and upper spine. This class is designed to bring awareness and encourage optimal functioning to this area of the body as we stretch and strengthen the myriad of muscle groups to cultivate more ease and fluid mobility. Learn about the anatomy and movement patterns of the upper body and deepen your practice. Prior yoga experience is strongly recommended for this class.


  • Heated Yoga I/II
  • This is one of our Foundations classes.

     

    This Yoga I/II blended class includes key instruction for beginner yogis, while offering options for experienced yogis to deepen and further their practice. Teachers address various levels while adapting to students' needs.

     

    This class is done in a heated room. The heat encourages greater flexibility and detoxification. Students are asked to bring a towel, mat and water.


  • Live Sitar + Meditative Yoga
  • In this special class, experience the benefits of practicing to the sounds of live music. Srinivas Reddy will be in-studio, playing his renowned sitar music as Tom Gillette guides a meditative yoga class. All levels are welcome. 
     
    This class can be paid for by Membership, Class Pass, or $16 drop in. Donations to Srinivas are greatly appreciated.
