YOGA at the BIC Center!

The Beaver Island Community Center is thrilled to offer for the 10th year the YOGA program presented by Lisa Theriac, aka “YOGA Lisa”! Please join Lisa and her associate Sue Screven for YOGA this summer!

Along with sharing this 4,000 yr. old practice, your generous donations for this summer YOGA program have made an impact on supporting the BI Community Center for everyone’s enjoyment. An opportunity where everyone benefits!

No experience needed for any class, just a willingness to be playful and try the postures. Modifications are always offered. If you are saying to yourself, “I can’t do yoga, I am not flexible”, only your mind needs to be flexible. We can all do yoga; yoga is for every body!
If you are an active practitioner you can play with your own variations.
As with any physical exercise, you should consult your medical physician if you have any questions.

Suggested donation of $10 to the Community Center*

Start your week or your weekend off with a nice, easy yoga flow to energize you for your time on the Island. We will slowly flow (Vinyasa) from one posture to another. Posture alignment will be explained giving students a greater opportunity to feel comfortable in attending this and other yoga classes, and more importantly to keep you safe. This class will help energize your whole body.

A great opportunity for any skill level to learn more about the postures & alignment.

* Mats, Blocks & Hand Towels available
* No perfumes or scents

Explore holding poses as we gradually apply load to the joints to increase strength and balance. Care will be taken to balance both strength and relaxation to develop a functional and happy body.

The therapeutic Yoga class also focuses on the ability to recruit the core muscles for balance; the alignment of the joints, the posture and most importantly, the spine; and on the breath, working towards healing the body from the inside.
