About MY Class

Paula Heitzner E-RYT 500, Director of the Nyack Yoga
Center, teaches a M(ature) Y(oga) Class (MY Class)
every Wednesday from 1 to 2 p.m. at the American Legion
Hall in Nyack.

“MY Class was conceived to bring the scope and
power of a yoga practice to that sector of the population
who needs its therapeutic aspect for rehabbing injury,
working with weakness and for exploring the symptoms
related to aging, whether it be physical, mental or neurological,”
explains Heitzner. “The class offers students
the opportunity to recover and reclaim the physical
efficiency needed to have a healthy lifestyle and to discover the attitudes and outlooks
that deliver the neurological well-being to utilize our life-force as well as maintaining the
mental vigor to better impact on memory and mood.”
MY Class uses a simple chair to safely explore the postures and principles of a yoga
practice. Balance and correct spinal alignment for good posture are encouraged and
enhanced also with barres (counter tops at home) and walls—all the ‘props’ that are
available to the student in their own real world. “The ‘universe’ becomes an ally instead of
the enemy in the journey towards wholeness within the studio or out and about,” assures
Heitzner.
Location: 85 S. Piermont Ave., Nyack. The location features easy ground level access into the
studio and street parking. Contact Paula Heitzner at 356-5613 for more information.
