New Yoga Options at a Familiar Place in Federal Hill

As of June 1st, Apothecary Wellness now offers several types of yoga classes in addition to their other spa services. These "small group, mind-body" classes will include a maximum of six students, guided by carefully selected instructors who will help bring the beginner and novice "back into balance."

"Beginner Yoga" will introduce new students to the fundamental principals of yoga, such as breathing and alignment, taught less vigorously through the use of preparatory and modified poses and the use of props. Instructors will focus on core balance, standing poses, and "yogic breathing," all of which strengthen the muscles and serve as a foundation for level advancement to "Continuing Yoga."

"Restorative Yoga," a gentle healing form of Hatha yoga, will also be offered for students of any level and exposure. The purpose of this class is to address stress-related illness through the use of five to six gentle poses, practiced with props, which create an environment that promotes total relaxation and mind-body connection.

The "Pre-Natal Yoga" class, designed in tandem with a woman as her body changes throughout her pregnancy, is also available to students of all levels.

To register for an Apothecary Wellness yoga class, you can visit their website, call, or drop by their center to  reserve your spot. Space is extremely limited, as these are "small group" classes. Pre-registered students pay $30.00, and if space allows, walk-ins will be charged $35.00. Each class is an hour and fifteen minutes in length.
