Come share an experience on the mat that will cultivate your physical, mental and spiritual well being. This class is excellent for beginners and students who enjoy gentle exercise. Stretch and strengthen the body as we progress together through various postures. You will learn functional alignment. If you like to move at a slower pace and want to clear your mind, this class is a great fit for you. Mostly, I will make the class fun and joyful as we wind down the day together on the mat!

Learn-to-Bike for Adults: Street Skills

A group ride designed to practice bike skills on off-street paths, bike lanes, and on low-stress shared streets. This class is open to all genders.

If you have mastered the basic skills like starting, stopping, and turning, and you have familiarity with using hand signals and shifting gears, come to a free Street Skills clinic for Boston residents who identify as women or gender expansive. This class builds from the skills practiced in our Road Readiness clinics. We’ll ride as a group on streets with low-speed traffic, learning how to start and stop safely at traffic signals, ride a safe distance from parked cars and moving vehicles, communicate with other road users, and make turns at intersections. This class is open to people of all genders. Participants are welcome (but not required) to take Road Readiness and Street Skills on the same day. 

If you cannot yet ride independently across a parking lot, have not mastered stopping and starting smoothly, or are unable to use hand signals, please do not register for this clinic. Our Basic Skills class is more appropriate.
