Take a yoga class at the Hunterdon Art Museum. OM CLINTON YOGA offers a variety of classes in the museum’s galleries. OM Clinton Yoga was founded by Gist Finley for the main purpose of making yoga (and all the benefits that come with it) available to everyone.
All classes are “Pay What You Can” (suggested donation is $10). If you can’t afford to pay anything, then it’s free. Well-being should never be a luxury. Come when you can and pay what you can.
A list of classes is below.
Yoga Shindig with Gist
Beginners to advanced practice side by side in an environment of encouragement, free from comparison, competition, and judgement. We begin with a basic sun salutation, then progress through a series of eleven poses, concluding with guided relaxation. This class is always a blast. All are welcome to be a part of this joyous yoga shindig.
Chair Yoga with Maura
Practice with Maura for this gentle, mindful yoga adapted for those who would prefer a class where you aren’t getting up and down on the mat. Perfect for those who are encouraged to do yoga but have an injury, those who get light-headed easily, or those who find yoga better suited for them from a seated position. Any pose can be modified for your level of strength and flexibility. Everything is provided, all you have to do is show up.
Yoga Basics with Michele
An opportunity to participate in an unhurried yoga practice while learning the proper form of the asanas that comprise the “sun salutations,” the 12 basic asanas of the Sivananda series and savasana. As all classes at Om Clinton, Yoga Basics promotes the five-point philosophy that proper breathing, relaxation, diet, exercise, and positive thinking work together to form a healthy yogic lifestyle.
All Levels with Michi & Ronit
Join Yoginis Ronit & Michi as they teach this dynamic class in tandem. All levels welcome.
Meditation with Dr. Satya
Heartfulness Meditation is a simple and effective way to integrate Meditation into our daily routine. It leads us from the constant outer activity of life to our inner selves. In a few minutes, you will learn how to truly relax and find a centered state.
Prenatal Yoga with Maura
Gentle postures, breathing, and guided relation help ease pregnancy, delivery, and the after effects of birth. Create strength, flexibility and mindfulness through a gentle practice designed especially for you and your baby-to-be.
Beginner Yoga with Dr. Rich
Rich Trenery leads this slower paced and less exertive class. His doctorate is in Physical Therapy, and he shares his knowledge and experience with his students in a most calming manner. This is ideal for beginners, those looking to build up (or rebuild) their strength, or for more advanced practitioners who desire a low-key class. As with all classes, proper form and alignment are improved upon. A second mat is available if you would like additional cushioning.
The Tuesday Night Yoga Club with Kate
How do you join this Club? Show up. This is the evening version of The Sunday Yoga Shindig, so come celebrate!
Vinyāsa with Michele
Vinyāsa is generally defined as continuous flow of asanas (yoga poses) that are linked with the breath (prāṇāyāma). Michele mindfully guides you from asana to asana with detailed instruction in this beautifully meditative practice.
Mantra Motion with Gist
High energy, mindful movement to music of bhakti tradition; including Bhajan, kirtan, sankirtana, and Shabda. Don’t know what that means? It means we are going to exert a lot of energy, develop core strength and have fun! This is yoga, not dance, but your hips may sway.
Parent and Child Yoga with Angela
For Mommy and/or Daddy and their kids (ages 1 – 6).
Abs for Yoga
You need strong abdominal muscles for the majority of asanas, especially: Sirasana (headstand), Sarvangasana (shoulder stand), Halasana (plough), Chaturangadandasana, et cetera. The further we progress with all the asanas, the better prepared we are to sit in the stillness of meditation on our path towards Samadhi.
AUMazing Kids! Spectrum Yoga
This is a closed class, meaning that it is reserved for young people (toddlers – 20s) with ASD. There is no preregistration and the class is free.
Intermediate/Advanced Yoga with Gist
This used to be an invitation only class, because my primary rule is safety. The key to staying safe is knowing your limits. There is a solid core group of yoga friends I fully trust, so we will try this as an open class and see what happens. Please note that this is not a exercise class with extreme asana variations (although your butt shall be thoroughly kicked). Rather, we are training our minds along the Raja Yoga path.
