In-Person Yoga Classes

Coucil on Aging

I will be teaching three classes at Milton’s Coucil on Aging (COA) this fall.  Two of them (both on Tuesday mornings) will be through the COA and one of them is a class I am hosting there on Thursday mornings.  

The Tuesday morning classes are ongoing, which is why there are no specific dates listed below.  COA charges $5 per class and they are drop-in.  The Council on Aging is located at 10 Walnut Street in Milton.  Come by and enjoy some yoga with me 🙂

Santosha

I will be hosting classes at Santosha Studio located at 60 Adams Street in Milton Lower Mills on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  On Tuesday evenings, the first class at 5:30 p.m. is more of a moderate flow where you are more likely to break a sweat.  The second class (as well as the class on Thursday evening) is a bit more gentle, but I am not guaranteeing you won’t sweat 😉 

The room in which these classes are held is not that large and enrollment is limited.  All of my classes at Santosha are at capacity right now and I can take names for my wait list.

You can email me with questions or to join the wait list (and yes, you very well might just get in!) at  fran.karoff@gmail.com

Online Classes

I have created a series, called “Just Enough” that is currently on hold.  These 30/40 minute classes have been bundled into ten-week sessions.  I may consider holding them again in the fall if there is interest.

The classes are geared to open, soothe, comfort and restore.  Most people will indulge in online yoga but feel an hour is too long, especially if they are doing it alone without the group dynamic of a studio class.  I have nicknamed these classes “Just Enough” because I offer centering and a good overall practice in 30 minutes with an optional ten minute svasana.  Each class is a unique gentle, and mostly floor-based flow.  Suggested playlists on Spotify will be provided as well.  A private class link will be sent to you via email each Monday morning for ten weeks.  You may play and replay the classes you receive as much as you like until the end of the session. 

Fran’s classes are yoga for the body and soul, allowing for stretching and centering at the same time. She gives space to push yourself or to take it easy and gives equal value to both choices. Each class starts with a thoughtful intention that is always exactly what you need to hear in that moment, and her playlists are always on point! Fran’s classes are no-pressure, come-as-you-are, welcoming and encouraging safe places to remember how to breathe and to stretch and strengthen your body and mind.

Fran’s yoga is holistic. It is geared towards the body and the mind: it is great exercise; starting off gently and moving towards more challenging poses, then winding down at the end; it is calming and centering; and she always starts the class with an intention. She brings us back to the intention at the end of the class and the poses that we do during the class relate to the intention in a subtle but significant way. She always has a terrific  playlist, different each time. She makes sure her students do the poses correctly so we don’t get injured. And Fran has a great sense of humor. Her class never feels competitive, just restorative on so many levels!

Fran’s yoga sessions offer a wonderful balance of mindfulness and physical challenge. This isn’t a mass produced class where you feel like a number. Every class has an intention (kind of like a little theme of the day) to focus your practice. The flows and poses can be adapted whether you are just starting or have practiced yoga for years. Everyone gets just enough attention so you feel confident in what you’re doing without being singled out. And the music is always a great addition. I highly recommend Fran’s classes.
