EVERGREEN YOGA has been offering group classes and private lessons at a serene studio in Bethesda, Maryland since 1979. The goal of Evergreen Yoga is to awaken the teacher within. Evergreen Yoga does not require anyone to mold themselves toward an ideal body, rather it is hoped that each person will work within a framework of confidence and safety, becoming more aware of their abilities and potential.
The Studio is located on a leafy residential street in an area bounded by River Road, Wilson Lane, and Bradley Blvd. There is plenty of on-street parking. Call 301.320.3630 for directions or email: email@example.com
MONDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY 9:30 am
Classes are ongoing and are grouped by level of experience. Note that on Mondays at 5:00, Wednesday mornings at 9:30, and Thursdays at 5:30, we offer *Gentle Yoga and Stress Reduction*. All others are regular Hatha Yoga classes. Contact the studio at (301) 320-3630 to discuss the best placement for you. You may begin your series whenever a space becomes available. A six class (in six week) series is $168. Half a series or less can be taken at the single class price of $31.
The classes include a complete, often vigorous range of yoga postures (asanas) with an emphasis on strength, stamina, and balance as well as flexibility. While focusing on the breath and working with proper body alignment, the postures will develop your will power and concentration. Regardless of your current physical condition, you will be offered safe ways to strengthen and stretch your body, improve your posture and practice relaxing. Each class is taught by Shelly Greenberg, RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher, 500 hours), is 1 hour 30 minutes long, and concludes with chanting followed by a period of guided relaxation.
Through Evergreen Yoga, Shelly hopes to provide each student with an increased ability to concentrate, to breathe freely, move gracefully and to live a more easeful life. Yoga guides us towards a life which is characterized by choice and awareness of the moment; one which is permeated with vitality, humor and joy. When we practice yoga we merge with a tradition that stretches back thousands of years. At Evergreen Yoga, we try to keep this practice fresh and growing by using a blend of ancient asana and modern techniques.
For over 35 years Shelly Greenberg, RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) has pursued a broad and varied training. She has been influenced by Janana, Rama Jyoti Vernon, T.K.V. Desikachar and his senior teachers. She is a certified teaching member of the International Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA). She was a founding member and past president of the Mid-Atlantic Yoga Association (MAYA), and has been a teacher and coordinator of the Unity in Yoga Conferences.
