MJ Yeager


Visual artist MJ Yeager has been a yoga practitioner for more than 20 years. She completed her Kripalu 200-hour training in 2012 and yin yoga certification in 2015. She blends 30 years of fitness, 2 levels of Reiki, life-earned wisdom and a bit of humor into the mix. As in the tradition of yoga, she focuses on the blending of breathe, movement and mindfulness. Postures are sustained and powerful. Her classes are designed for intermediate level, though a beginner is made to feel comfortable in the group.


MJ Yeager instructs the following:
  • Yin Yoga
  • This is one of our Focused classes.
     
    Yin Yoga poses are performed seated or lying down using props and slow transitional movements that massage and lubricate the body’s sheath of connective tissue as well as the mind’s power of observation. Sustaining each pose for a period of time pairs intentional stillness with steady compression to signal a “rest and restore” mode for the central nervous system thus promoting digestion, muscle repair and organ detoxification.

  • Yoga Pilates

  • This is one of our Focused classes.
     
    Our Yoga Pilates class combines the basics of Pilates with yoga postures focused on the torso, abdomen, and spine to help practitioners build core strength.

  • Restorative
  • This is one of our Focused classes.

     

    Restorative Yoga uses blankets, bolsters and pillows to fully support the body in foundational yoga postures, without muscular exertion. Deep but passive, Restorative Yoga can enhance a vigorous practice, and is also well suited for beginners as well as those with injuries. This grounding practice soothes the nervous system and helps boost the immune system.
