Patagonia’s Price-less Pandemic Yoga Practice
Patagonia, the Ventura-based designer/distributor of outdoor clothing and gear, is helping the local community combat the coronavirus through offering several yoga classes online free of charge. A three-part Yoga & Wellness Series with Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Yoga Instructor and Wellness Coach Julie Peacock, comes to a close on April 28 with a 30-minute vinyasa practice focusing on the hips and lower back followed by a 30-minute conversation around nutrition with simple at-home recipes for breakfast and lunch. Access the 10 am class at https://bit.ly/34oAAmw, password “julieyoga.” Ongoing virtual weekly yoga classes are also being held Sunday at 11:30 am-12:30 pm, consisting of an all levels flow class with a brief seated meditation and core work followed by progressively sequenced standing postures, back bends, twists, hip openers and forward folds with plenty of time for savasana at the end. Zoom room access via https://ucsc.zoom.us/j/98002406393, with the password “flow.” Nina Kolar also offers an online all-levels vinyasa flow every Tuesday at 3 pm when you can expect active flexibility work, playful transitions, core work… and some quality dad jokes.
