This fall I’ll be teaching two drop-in Iyengar Yoga classes per week, and have added a new Pilates inspired class as well, Thursday mornings at 10am starting October 1st. I’m really excited to teach this new class, it’s great to keep moving everyday, and keep exploring new ways of finding integration in our bodies.
Take a look at the schedule below. Sign up for classes at least an hour before it starts to get the zoom link. You can register here at the Ocean and Crow website. If you can’t make it to the live class, you can register for “anytime access” and receive a recording of the class to do in your own time.
Aligning Body, Mind and Breath: Iyengar Yoga
Want a great start to your weekend? Join Meghan Goodman, certified Iyengar yoga instructor, for an alignment based practice that will help you feel more centered and energized. The teaching will focus on building stable and healthy foundations. We will work on improving concentration and developing inner awareness so that the postures become a form of ‘meditation in action’, integrating the body, mind and breath. We will explore ways to find our optimal flow of energy, to support when needed, and to move deeper into the postures safely. Students who are beginners, pregnant or are working with injuries are welcome to join us, just please make sure to get your care provider’s approval first.
Unwind: Calming Iyengar Yoga
Join Iyengar yoga teacher Meghan this fall for a practice that will help you wind down from your day. A combination of active and restorative postures will be sequenced to help the student release tension and stress from their day, improve circulation, and prepare the body and mind for a restful night’s sleep. Pranayama breath work and meditation appropriate for the evening will be introduced, as we move towards finding peaceful stillness in both the body and the mind. This class is suitable for students of all levels, as well as those who are pregnant or working with injuries. Please make sure to get your care provider’s approval first if recovering from any serious injury or if you are pregnant.
Core Connect: Pilates and Yoga
Thursday’s 10-11am (starting October 1st)
Join Meghan Goodman for an hour of Pilates and yoga inspired movements to help you connect with your core, stabilize your pelvis, and find more ease and mobility in your limbs. Drawing from a rich history of movement training in dance, Pilates, and various styles of yoga, Meghan will lead you through a fun and challenging class to get you moving, breathing and feeling good. Beginners and experienced students both welcome, please consult a doctor and check in with Meghan before class if you have any injuries.
Meghan Goodman is an Iyengar yoga instructor, professional dance artist, Pilates instructor and a mother of two young boys. Meghan began practicing yoga in 1998 and teaching in 2006. Meghan discovered the Iyengar yoga practice in 2008, and with the guidance of senior teacher Louie Ettling, Meghan completed the Intro 2 teaching certification in 2013, and the Intermediate Junior 1 certification in 2017. After experiencing the many changes in the body after having two children, Meghan was curious to learn more about core connectivity, so she delved deeper into her curiosity of Pilates, and completed a Pilates Mat teacher training program with Darcy McMurray in February 2020. She is excited to be sharing her love of intelligent movement in all of these forms with the wonderful students at Ocean and Crow.
