GROUP MIND & BODY

ACTIVE FLOW

Put down that third cup of coffee and come to your mat! This class is designed to awaken, re-ignite and energize your body and mind. This is an active class where you will move and breathe and have the chance to be still with yourself. Be prepared to sweat and to strengthen your arms, core and legs. This vinyasa class will help you find that sweet spot between effort and letting go.

CHAIR YOGA

Chair yoga is a great practice for everyone as it deepens flexibility and strengthens personal body awareness.

Standing poses are offered to help class participants increase their strength and flexibility.

FOUNDATIONS OF HATHA

PILATES

This 60 minute class involves a series of classical pilates exercises performed on a mat without equipment. Each exercise emphasizes breath, core conditioning and body awareness.

Instructors pay special attention to alignment and form. To attend, please obtain a ticket from the front desk up to 90 minutes prior to class.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

In this class we use props, body weight and gravity to deepen stretches. This slow-paced, but deceptively active yoga practice is set to meditative classical music. We hold the major poses for at least two minutes to allow everyone the opportunity to open the body and fully explore each pose before moving forward. Typically we focus on one or two parts of the body per practice while connecting movement with the mind.

TAI CHI

[04546]

If you are looking for a way to reduce stress, consider Tai Chi (TIE CHEE).

Originally developed for self-defense,

Tai Chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that is now used for stress reduction, improved balance and a variety of other health conditions.

Often described as meditation in motion, Tai Chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements.

It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner accompanied by deep breathing.

YOGA FOR LENGTH

Together we will explore a yoga practice focused on poses (asanas), breath (pranayama) and deep relaxation (shavasana) designed for all.

Each class will start with a variety of seated stretches and core poses that will work up to a series of standing poses centered on the total-body

Sun Salutation. Expect to touch all the major muscle groups (and some minor ones) before shifting focus from outward to inward and ending with deep relaxation and meditation.

ADULTS

YOGA FOR STRENGTH

This is a yoga practice focused on poses (asanas), breath (pranayama) and deep relaxation (shavasana) designed for the intermediate yoga student.

Expect to gain both flexibility and strength as you begin with poses that lengthen the muscles. You will shift to the strong portion of our practice and end with deep relaxation and meditation.

YOGA FOR EVERYONE

Experience a holistic approach to yoga that combines time-honored teachings with therapeutic techniques for health and well-being. This class will begin with centering, including mudras and mantras to awaken and connect. Practitioners will develop balance, strength and flexibility through sequenced asanas with a focus on postural alignment and mind/body awareness. Breathing techniques and guided relaxation will bring benefits of tension release, stress reduction, and increased vitality. This class is designed for mixed levels and will accommodate beginners as well as inspire experienced yogis to deepen their practice.

YOGA FORM & FLOW

This 70 minute class will begin with meditation, pranayama and warmup stretches, followed by focus on asana form and alignment, including modifications and adjustments. A vinyasa (flowing sequence) follows and each class concludes with Savasana

(relaxation).

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa Flow sequences posture from one to another with the flow of the breath. The repetition of asanas throughout the practice grounds the flow, increasing range of motion and delivering nutrients to the muscles.

Expect rhythmic movements that enlivens the body, activates the breath and generates a rise in body temperature. Vinyasa Flow is great for individuals wanting to flow between poses or elevate their heart rate. and breath. All levels are welcome.

YOGA CORE

This is a “best of both worlds” class where we combine the ancient art of yoga with a more contemporary

Pilates practice. Together, we will focus primarily on the core with poses and moves that strengthen the abdominal muscles, the glutes, hamstrings and back while connecting body movement with mind and breath. All are welcome, as students can customize their practice by choosing basic poses or optional variations.

YOGA FUN FLOW

[01505]

This is a class guided by intuition and is determined by the energy of the students. It is a creative vinyasa flow class that delivers a challenge to students that keeps them inspired and growing. It includes postures that teach alignment and strengthen mind and body awareness. Get ready to dive deep, and enter the realm of the unknown, tapping into your inner strength and discovering more peace and joy along the way. All are welcome.

Leader-In-Training Program

(For teens entering 11th grade)

Recognizing that high school students should get more out of a summer camp program, our LIT (Leader-In-Training) participants learn teamwork and leadership skills. Throughout this 4 week program, teens participate in daily leadership workshops, assist our staff with instructing camp programs, complete service learning projects and attend a 3-day camping and hiking trip to French Creek State Park in Elverson, PA.

New to Tockwogh? No problem! This program is centered around teamwork and interaction with peers and staff. Participants quickly become part of the group as they create memorable and formative experiences together.

For more information, please contact Pat Gizinski at [email protected]

Counselor-In-Training Program

(For teens entering 12th grade)

Our CIT (Counselor-In-Training) program is specifically designed to give teens the opportunity to work directly with our campers, gain experience running camp programs and further develop leadership skills. Offered in a 3 week or 4 week program, teens will participate in daily leadership workshops, service learning opportunities and a one night trip to Dutch

Springs Waterpark.
