classes to be offered
St. Mary’s Hospital will, once again, be offering a series of eight yoga classes at the Cottonwood Community Center this fall. The classes will be held on Wednesday evenings, September 7 through October 26th from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Sue Lattin, Registered Yoga Teacher, will be the instructor. She attended a 280 hour program in Yoga Motion Teacher Training and has over 70 hours experience in teaching yoga. Lattin’s training in massage included courses in anatomy, physiology, ethics, trigger points, joint mobility, orthopedic assessments, remedial exercise, nutrition and kinesiology.
“Yoga is appropriate for almost everyone regardless of their age, ability, physical condition or gender. When people think of yoga they sometimes imagine stretching like a gymnast, but the series of yoga poses, or asanas, work by safely stretching muscles, ligaments, tendons and the fascia sheath that covers your muscles,” said Lattin. “Regardless of a person’s level of flexibility the poses can be adapted to fit everyone’s own body.” Lattin is on the staff of SMHC and serves as the massage therapist at the Grangeville Medical Clinic.
Cost for the eight week series is $56 or a $10 drop in fee per class. Fees are collected at the beginning of class. Participants should wear stretchy clothes, bring a yoga mat, towel and belt. No registration is necessary.
“We’ll be publicizing the class in August also, but we thought we’d give people a heads up so they can work the class into their schedule after summer’s end,” said Jeanette Gorman, SMHC Community Relations Coordinator. “We had the interest and are happy to offer yoga once again. People who didn’t take the prior series are just as welcome as those who attended last April and May. Anyone is welcome to attend the whole series or drop in whenever it’s convenient.”
