These longer themed classes on selected Saturdays are typically taught by Rudy. He offers a spacious experience of progressive slow movements into accessible yoga postures, gentle breathing practices, an extended time for relaxation, and meditation. The intention of each two-and-a-half hour class is to savor the subtleties of Dynamic Gentle Yoga.
Sometimes Rudy invites other teachers to offer an experience on a related themes, always in the gentle tradition.

The ninth blossom of the Yamas and Niyamas garland is called Swadyaya (pronounced swahd-yah-yah) which loosely translates to self-study. This Niyama, studied for the month of February, reminds me of the maxim “know thyself.” Given that the Gentle Yogis practice community has already been on a journey of “self-study” for many months now, we have to dig a little deeper to know what the invitation of Swadyaya is about.
