Ken discovered yoga in 2003 as an alternative to knee surgery recommended to fix years of wear and tear. After 60 consecutive days of yoga, healthy knees, a revived spirit and mental clarity he was convinced that yoga would be a key part of his life. In April 2008 Ken took the leap and resigned from his corporate job as a systems analyst to devote his attention to practicing and teaching yoga. As a Certified Forrest Yoga instructor he is thrilled to be teaching his students about the joy, well being and fulfillment of a regular yoga practice. In training for Respiratory Therapy he is deepening his knowledge of breath and is bringing the benefits of yoga to students with lung conditions such as asthma, emphysema and cystic fibrosis. Ken’s group and private classes focus on the healing power of breath while engaging in a rigorous series of asana’s that will challenge you to go deeper, building your strength, integrity and spirit.
Ken Kloes instructs the following:
Yin yoga focuses primarily on the connective tissue and its unique role in the human body. Connective tissue pervades the entire human body from skin to the smallest cell. A series of deep, long held postures stimulates growth and function of the tissues leaving your body feeling refreshed and energized! The divine inner practice of Yin balances your energetic system, increases flexibility and provides time for deep contemplation and reflection.
Restorative Yoga is a very gentle yoga practice designed to calm the nervous system and create overall health in the body. It offers simple yet powerful postures as a regenerative healing tool that reduces stress by supporting the body's innate responses towards homeostasis and health. Through the use of supported yoga postures, breathing and meditative techniques, a profound sense of relaxation can infuse one's entire being which leads to healing.
