We opened our doors in August of 1999 with the hope of providing a communal atmosphere in which yoga in Lawrence could
flourish. The response has been wonderful. Our focus is Iyengar-method yoga classes, and one of our aims is to have several certified teachers. Three of our six teachers are Iyengar-certified, and others are preparing to go up for assessment. One of our teachers recently returned from her second trip to India, studying for two months with the Iyengars in Pune.
Located in residential North Lawrence, Star Farm is tucked into a neighborhood filled with trees and friendly people.
It has eco-friendly bamboo floors, ceiling fans and bright windows. There are props a-plenty; cork blocks, mats with recycled content, straps, eye bags, bolsters, meditation cushions, Mexican blankets! It’s a beautiful ten minute walk across the bridge over the Kaw if you’re coming from downtown Lawrence. If you have four wheels there’s street parking and if you have two wheels we have a handrail to tie them to! Classes are currently being offered for beginner levels as well as experienced practitioners. Individual or small group sessions are available as well.
Gentle Strength Yoga with Karen Seibel, RN,RYT, offers you the opportunity to have individualized yoga lessons designed
just for you and your needs. I work with those with injuries, health problems, those going through cancer therapy and anyone desiring special attention. Great for the older adult, too. 20 years experience.
The ultimate goal of yoga practice includes Sananda Samadhi or Bliss according to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. In
your private or group lesson we will flow through asana (posture) practice paying close attention to pranayam (breath) and drishti (gaze). We will learn to meditate during our practice, clearing the mind and creating space for peace, understanding and bliss.
