Still Point Zen Center and Wisconsin Yoga Studios are colaborating on a Yoga Program at Taycheedah Correctional Institution [TCI is a Women's Maximum Security Prison - Fond du Lac, WI]As of March 26, 2012, we hit our goal of 30 sets of Yoga blocks and straps for the women at Taycheedah Correctional Institution. There are two classes each with 25 women participating, and the waiting list has grown to 70. Clearly, there is a need and a hunger for this teaching. On Thursday December 9, 2011, we hit our goal of 25 Yoga mats so that Penney Johns began offering two "Core Basics" Yoga Classes at Taycheedah Correctional Institution. Our current goal is now to provide blankets and yoga bolsters. Donations of props, as well as monetary donations are tax deductible by the donor under Still Point Zen Center's 501(c)(3) non-profit status.

Restorative Yoga:An active, healing, stress reducing style of yoga which utilizes props to make it easier for the body to get into certain poses. The use of props provides a completely supportive environment for total relaxation.
The poses are specifically designed for times when you feel fatigued, weak, or stressed from daily life. These poses also can be useful as a practice when recovering from illness, injury or childbirth.
In Restorative Yoga the spine is flexed and extended in all directions. The connective tissues of the joints are stretched in gentle subtle movements that are held for 5-10 minutes at a time. These poses are recommended as an excellent starting point for beginners. They are also a wonderful complement to any sport that places a great emphasis on the use of larger muscles.
The Restorative Yoga class will combine meditation, breathing and relaxation exercises to leave you deeply relaxed, energized and physically refreshed for the rest of your day.
Tuesday mornings: 8:30-9:45 Restorative Yoga
Friday mornings: 9:00-10:15 Restorative Yoga
Core BasicsWe will focus on strengthening the core of the body, increase flexibility, learn breathing exercises, develop new postural patterns of alignment to correct posture, deepen relaxation, learn to focus the mind and practice meditation. Using traditional yoga postures, the goal is to concentrate on developing strength in the pelvis, abdomen, arms and legs. Standing and floor poses will be practiced. Open to new and practiced yoga students.
