Yoga at Capon Crossing Farm Market

‘Tis the season for Yoga in the Barn!

Interested in classes? E-mail Elli at ewestmoreland7@gmail.com OR  fill out the form at the bottom of this post and let her know:
1) Your name

2) Your preferred day and time for classes

She will add you to her yoga class e-mail list and shortly let you know when classes will be held. She anticipates starting the second week or weekend in May, when the weather should be reliably warm.

Elli received her 200-hour teacher certification in April 2011 from the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in India. She has been practicing various types of yoga for 10 years, but enjoys teaching Sivananda Yoga because it is accessible to yogis of all levels, from those who have never stepped foot on a yoga mat, to those who spend half their time in handstands.

The standard Sivananda sequence follows 12 Basic Asanas (Poses), but during the classes in the barn, Elli will work up to the full sequence over a period of time. Some students may choose to do modifications of some poses, and during classes we may not even complete the full sequence (so don’t be scared off by headstands!!)  Yoga is an excellent way to exercise, but is also beneficial from the meditative quality of the movement.

Hope to see you on the mat!

Here is the full Sivananda sequence (click on the photos to see full size):

 (Note: Please do not attempt to try the more advanced poses at home without proper instruction.)

 

Thanks so much!

We had a great crowd yesterday at our annual 4th of July Fest! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to show their support and enjoy the festivities. If you couldn’t make or just can’t get enough of Capon Crossing, join us tomorrow for round two! We’ll be serving food again: ground chuck hamburgers and cheeseburgers, steak on a stick, brats, tornado fries, and ice cream bars. Banana Express will be opening for Buddy Dunlap and Friends, who will play at 5pm. Come hungry and bring a chair if you would like to stay for some fantastic bluegrass!
The following morning will be the regular yoga class, from 9:00am-10:30am.

THANKS AGAIN!!

Join us in July

Thanks to those of you who joined us for the Yoga Open House this past Saturday! We really appreciate your support.

Beginning July 1st, and every Sunday thereafter, yoga classes will be held in the barn from 9:00am-10:30am. Classes are open to all levels, from beginners to experienced yoga practitioners. Pay by donation. Elli, who will be teaching the classes, has been practicing yoga for the past 9 years. She studied Ashtanga yoga for 5 months during her stay in India during 2009, and this past March traveled back to India to get her teacher’s certification in Sivananda Hatha yoga. Hope you will join us!

Also, save the date for our July festivals! On the 4th and 7th, we will be serving our own grass-fed beef and hosting Lonesome Highway, who will be playing at 5pm. It should be fun, as usual!

Ben is about to turn 3, and Capon Crossing is turning 2 on July 4th! Come help us celebrate Ben’s birthday, our nation’s birthday, and Capon Crossing’s birthday, too!
