Yoga
DOWNTOWN CHICAGO LOOP

There are two opportunities to enjoy yoga at Grace.

STEVE CULL SESSIONS

Mondays, 5:30-6:30 PM Gentle Hatha — will resume in 2017

Thursdays, 6-7 PM Hatha

Loop Yoga provides classes that encourage beginners and challenges students that have committed to their practice. Classes are light-hearted yet serious about the proper fundamentals and safe alignment of a yoga practice so that each student can learn from where they are physically. Music is a part of these classes and each mix is designed to inspire and lends itself to the style of the class. We also incorporate breathing and meditation so that the experience is well rounded. It’s not just about headstands and arm balances! The practice of yoga goes beyond the physical and taps into a deeper level of awareness.

About Beverly McClellan: Beverly has been practicing yoga for about 15 years, including through both pregnancies. She originally pursued yoga to help address migraines and found a solution that has helped bring balance to her health and so many other areas of her life.  As a mother of two, she continues to benefit from the peace yoga practice brings in all formsasana, pranayama, and meditation. She takes great joy in sharing those benefits with other parents and in creating a safe atmosphere in which to laugh or cry about and to process our parenting and other life challenges! Her teaching style, largely Hatha and Tantra, is geared toward making you better for your day, not wearing you out. She received her 200-hour teaching certification in March 2012 from Tejas Yoga in the South Loop, where she has lived for more than 15 years.  She continues to learn and be inspired by her teachers there, Jim Bennitt and James Tennant, to whom she is grateful for revealing that yoga isn’t just something we do on a mat in a studio, but something we can use in our daily lives. Beverly also received her 85-hour Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga certification in September 2015 from the Amala School of Prenatal Yoga, under the warm guidance of Lela Beem and Cassie Rodgers, who continue to inspire her in supporting women and their families through yoga, especially the subtler aspects, including the koshas, yoga nidra, pranayama, and meditation. Beverly is an avid environmentalist, working as attorney and volunteer board member for the Alliance for the Great Lakes for many years.  She also is a founding parent of Urban Prairie Waldorf School. She has her JD from Chicago-Kent School of Law and Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Texas.
