The Iyengar Yoga Center of Vermont has partnered with the Transgender Community Wellness Program at the Pride Center of Vermont to offer free yoga classes specifically for Trans* and Gender Non-Conforming (GNC) individuals. Join Rebecca Weisman, a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor, to co-create a safe and inviting space to learn about the rich practice of yoga. In this course we will work with basic yoga postures to learn a strong foundation, creating confidence and steadiness in the body. We will also look at ways that yoga can aid in reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, balance fluctuations in hormones, and other special topics. Classes are slow, instructional, and safe- appropriate for any body, regardless of age or ability.
A testimonial from a Pride Center Community member: "A friend pushed me to attend my first yoga class this past summer and I have never looked back. We have a wonderful opportunity to get together in a safe and welcoming space where no one will judge you, hurt you, or make you feel bad. Rebecca is one of best teachers I have met. She understands how to work with folks who are not classically bendy (read that as out of shape, like me) and is going to put this class out there for us at no cost, and in a safe and comfortable environment."
