New at Symmetry – Prenatal and Kundalini Yoga

We are excited to introduce one of Alameda’s finest teachers, Rebecca Trissell, to our community! Rebecca will be teaching two new classes at Symmetry:

Prenatal Yoga – Sundays, 6:45-7:45PM 

Prenatal yoga offers a multifaceted approach to childbirth preparation that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Prenatal yoga can help Improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth and motherhood.

In each class mothers are encouraged to gently move different areas of the body while standing, sitting or lying on the ground. Each position is aimed at developing  strength, flexibility and balance. Props – such as blankets, cushions, blocks and belts – may be used to provide support and comfort. In each class you’ll be encouraged to listen to your own breathing, pay close attention to sensations, thoughts and emotions, or repeat a mantra or word to bring about a state of self-awareness and inner calm.

 Kundalini Yoga – Every last Sunday of the month, 8PM-9PM 

Kundalini Yoga classes are a  blend of yoga postures,  movement, breathing techniques, mantra, music and meditation which teach you the art of relaxation, self-healing & elevation. Balancing the body and mind enables you to experience clarity, calm and ease.
