It is guaranteed that you will be greeted, encouraged, and supported, no matter if it’s your first time or your hundredth. Earthkeeper welcomes you into the yoga community with open arms and loving hearts.
Earthkeeper Yoga designed many different classes for you. Whether you are a beginner, an expert, pregnant, or looking for something for the little ones. For beginners, Earthkeeper Yoga offers a beginner yoga series that runs at various times throughout the year. Above all, it is designed to break down postures and learn how to breathe, and understand yoga’s foundations and benefits. This class really teaches you about how YOUR body works, and it clarifies any questions you may have.
They also offer Chair yoga if you have difficulty sitting on the floor or have limited mobility. They use movements that stretch and strengthen your body and build balance while using the wall or chair for support.
Healing yoga focuses on tapping into your strength, flexibility, and balance using slow and subtle movements. This class is ideal for those looking for a gently paced class and is excellent for beginners or returning postpartum.
There is a class just for your little ones that are a playful class that encourages self-expression as well as building social skills. They will learn how to work with others and how to regulate their breathing by playing yoga games, singing, drawing, and listening to stories, and it is the perfect class for kids ages 5 to 12.
Prenatal Yoga is offered for pregnant moms to help support them throughout pregnancy and to prepare them for birth. This class helps with breathing exercises for labor and strategies to reduce stress and increase overall comfort.
No matter what level Earthkeeper Yoga has a yoga class for everybody. This class meets you where you are and is fully inclusive so that regardless of experience, age, weight, race, sexual identity, or ability, you feel capable and can benefit from the practice. Full of props and modifications, you will find your perfect balance between effort and ease.
Earthkeeper Yoga not only offers classes at the studio, but they will also have classes at Overton Park in Mountain Brook, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and Red Mountain Park. Yoga and hiking are combined in the HOGA course. How cool is that?! At the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, they have a group that meets for mindful walking and then a yoga class right there in the gardens. They also partner with Community on the Rise, Forge Breast Cancer Survivor Center, Laura Crandall Brown Foundation, and the University of Alabama Birmingham as they genuinely support the community and help one another. Whether you want traditional classes or classes out in the community and with nature, there is sure to be something for everyone at Earthkeeper Yoga.
