Yoga

Our Mission:

Our Mission at Roper PT is to provide non-dogmatic, holistic, evidence-based yoga to a varied population of all ages, from healthy to injured. It is yoga for Every. Body.


Our Method:

Group classes and private instruction are taught by licensed physical therapists with over 1500 hours in Medical Therapeutic Yoga training. Our classes are held in our intimate and beautiful on-site studio, where education is abundant and hands on treatment and adjustments are frequent.

Our perspective is unique and biomechanically sound, and small class sizes allow for individualized attention. Our yoga is student-centered; the teaching is designed around the specific challenges and strengths that the client brings to the mat. You will not only be instructed and supported but evaluated in each pose. We incorporate the emotional, social, intellectual, physical and spiritual aspects of wellness in our classes and encourage it in everyday living.

Class offerings- we offer three levels of practice to accommodate Every. Body.

Foundations Yoga- Our foundations class will help you increase flexibility, strength, and stamina. We will introduce students to the fundamentals of yoga with a goal to help restore breath, functional movement patterns, body awareness and assist with posture and alignment.

Core Yoga- Core yoga targets beginner to advanced asanas with focus on breathing patterns and building upon the fundamentals set in our foundations class. Our focus is on our core- the core of our being, body, and spirituality.

Sports Yoga: This class targets advanced asanas with focus on breath and presence of mind. Students will continue to work on the fundamentals of yoga such as core breath, arm spirals and mindfulness tools for the inner game. If you run, bike, hike, swim, play tennis, or just want to deepen your yoga practice, this class will safely challenge you as you work toward achieving your optimum performance level.

Logistics:

  • We are allowing 3 people to be registered and come to the studio if you are in pain and it is better for you to attend for cueing. You must call ahead and pre-register to be in the studio.
  • What to Bring: A standard yoga mat and a bottle of water. All external props are provided (blocks, straps, blankets).
  • What to Wear: Athletic wear that is semi-form fitting works best when practicing yoga.
  • Register for classes by the first of every month. A minimum of 6 students must be registered per class in order to offer the classes at a $22.00 rate. If less than 6 students are registered per class by the first of each month we will give our students the option of semi-private instruction before canceling. Semi-private fees will be determined by the number of students enrolled.
  • Yoga as Medicine works best with a commitment. We are unable to offer class extensions, “roll overs” or refunds unless of very unforeseen circumstances. You have 30 days to use your class series. You may attend any of the three class offerings in order to “make up” a missed class if needed.
