JANUARY-FEBRUARY Group Classes

YOGA FUNDAMENTALS for BEGINNERS
Our Fundamental Course teaches the basics of yoga practice in an organized and safe manner. The course is designed for TOTAL BEGINNERS who want to make sure they are learning postures gradually and with proper breathing. Our intention is to provide a solid foundation for the practice of postures, breathing, and stress reduction through yoga.

Thursdays, 5:45 to 7 PM, January 11th to February 15th
The fee for the 6 week Series is $60


A STEP ABOVE FUNDAMENTALS 
These Series are designed for people who have taken our Yoga Fundamental Course as well as anyone who has had a little experience with yoga in the past. While still teaching the basics of yoga practice in an organized and gradual manner, this course includes new postures and more work with the breath.  Our intent is to continue providing a solid foundation for the practice of postures, breathing, and stress reduction through yoga.

Thursday mornings 9:30 to 10:45 AM, January 11th to February 15th
The fee for the 6 week Series is $72

Saturdays, Noon to 1:15 PM, January 13th to February 17th

Once you sign up for a class, your spot is reserved in that class. 
If you need to miss one class, you can make arrangements with us 
to make it up in another class during the same Series


CONTINUING GENTLE YOGA
This slower paced continuing series offers students an opportunity to extend their exploration of yoga. Although gentle, the guidance for these classes will encourage students to develop their full potentials while respecting body conditions, energy levels, or temperament. Greater emphasis is placed on modifications and adaptations so the practice will meet the student’s individual needs. As with all our classes, intentional breathing linked to bodily movements is an important part of the approach. This Series is open to students who have worked with us before. It is also open to new students, but they must first get approval from the instructor David Jacobs.

Monday afternoons, 12:30 to 1:45 PM, January 8th to February 12th
$72 for the 6 week course


RESTORATIVE YOGA 
This class is ideal for individuals who have particular health issues and can also accommodate people who have difficulty moving to the floor. In this case, guidance can be adapted so a person can follow the class from a chair. Please write David at info@upstateyogainstitute.com if you are considering this class so you can talk about your needs prior to signing up.

INTRO TO CHANTING AND YOGA PHILOSOPHY
Our 4 week Beginner’s Course gently introduces participants to the art of chanting, a joyful group practice accessible to all. Chanting was widely used in Vedic times to help people open to the presence of spirit and as a means to transmit wisdom. Passages from the Upanisads as well as Yoga sutras will be used to familiarize participants with the basics of chanting. This course is offered periodically at our school. If you would like for your name to be placed on a waiting list, plese let us know of your interest so you can be notified the next time we offer the course. For more details on this class, click here.
