NEWTON, N.J. - Oct. 9, 2017 - PRLog -- The American Legion Post 86 is adding two Yoga classes to their growing roster of events hosted by The Tree of Health Center (TTOHC).  "Music, Movement and Yoga" is offered for moms/caregivers and children. "Chair Yoga" is offered for those who desire a gentle approach to better health and flexibility.

"Music, Movement and Yoga" is a caregiver/child class for two- to four-year olds. This fun and engaging eight-week class series combines unique preschooler-friendly yoga poses with songs, stories, and games to create an enriching parent/child activity. Each class is personalized around preschoolers' curiosities as they learn yoga through social interaction, repetition, and play. Children also learn how to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span by actively following directions. No yoga experience is required. Younger siblings are welcome too!  This program is suitable for more than one child in a family and begins Thursday, October 12, running weekly through December 7th from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m.  The first class is free of charge to determine if this is the right series for you and your child or family.

"Chair Yoga" is a gentle practice open to all. It is a particularly good class for people with physical challenges, limited mobility, seniors, pregnant women and those recovering from an injury.  As the name implies, students will practice primarily sitting in a chair with options to stand. Since our society sits so often, "Chair Yoga: is a great way to learn postures to do from a desk, car, or any other time you're sitting. "Chair Yoga" is incredibly relaxing in part because of the heavy emphasis on breathing techniques and relaxation. Students work in and out of postures to increase strength and flexibility while allowing ample time to rest and integrate.  These weekly classes begin October 12 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and run weekly through December 14.

"Music, Movement and Yoga" and "Chair Yoga" are facilitated by Julie Lain Trilling, RYT, a familiar face in Sussex County.  Julie is a Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Childlight Yoga Instructor, studying and practicing yoga since 2000. She has completed the 200-hour HA-THA Yoga Method teacher training with Delia Quigley and Denise Kay, and then became certified in "Chair Yoga."  Julie recently attended Nationally acclaimed Childlight Yoga trainings on Yoga and Mindfulness for Children, Advanced Teaching Concepts for Yoga and Mindfulness for Children and Yoga and mindfulness in Schools. Julie initiated yoga and mindfulness programs at local day care centers and preschools and volunteers at Project Self-Sufficiency's Little Sprouts Early Learning Center teaching Yoga and Mindfulness classes.

All classes will be held at the American Legion, Post 86, 20 Yates Ave, Newton, NJ, 07860. "Music, Movement and Yoga" is an eight-week weekly series for $120 per family. Family fee includes one to two adults plus up to two children.  Any additional children would be $60 for the series.  "Chair Yoga" is $12/class or $60 for six classes. No one will be turned away for financial reasons.  Please speak to the teacher to make an arrangement. To learn more about these and other classes, go online to or call (973) 500-8813.
