Yoga

NMCC has offered a local, affordable, healthy was to share with our community, connecting care for oneself and the earth in a holisitic and spiritual manner since 2013.  We currently offer both live community yoga classes on Zoom and an outdoor Yoga class.  Our classes are led by Vicki Earl, our 200-hour certified yoga instructor.  See Vicki’s story below for more details about our classes.

Our next Zoom Yoga series on Mondays, runs from June 28 – July 26 (no class on July 5, Memorial Day).   Our new Thursday series is offered from July 1 to July 29 – both outdoors at NMCC and broadcast live on Zoom starting at 6:00 p.m.  Pricing:

  • Monday (Zoom) series costs $28 for 4 classes (none on July 5).   Monday-only students may add any Thursday class (outdoors at NMCC or by Zoom) to give you a total of 5 classes.   Cost is $35 with one Thursday class.
  • Thursday (outdoor + Zoom) series costs $35 for 5 classes; in case of rain, the outdoor class will be held on Zoom, and you will be notified the day of class.
  • Bonus Thursday option – in lieu of a “walk-in” option as suggested by some of you, sign up for 3 outdoor or Zoom classes on Thursdays for $25.

Checks can be mailed to NMCC, 1271 Durham Road, Madison, CT 06443 – please clearly mark the check and envelope with “Yoga”.   Electronic options are available as well – let me know if you are interested.

Please let Roberta Hanlon know of your plans so we can plan and track accordingly.   If you have any friends or family you’d like to invite, we’d love to have them – advising them previous experience is recommended.    If they want to try our class before committing, feel free to offer a free class.

Vicki found her love for yoga right here at NMCC back in 2013 when classes started to be offered.  She enjoys many types of yoga from gentle and restorative to hatha and vinyasa.  One of the gifts of the COVID quarantine period was that it afforded her the time to not only increase her personal yoga practice but also to complete her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga Farm based in Ithaca, New York.  This training gave her the ability to share the gift of yoga with her friends, family and the NMCC community as well as increasing her own focus on living more mindfully, personal and spiritual growth. Her teaching style is a combination of gentle and vinyasa flow and she provides modifications and suggestions for varying levels of students throughout the class.
