Class is an hour long and Kelly will offer  variations on each yoga pose so that you can find the one that works best for your body. Bring your own mat, two blocks and a strap, or use the equipment provided by the rec center.  This is not necessarily a gentle yoga practice, but can be very gentle if that is what you need- Kelly encourages everyone to make modifications when needed, or go further if the energy and flexibility allows.  You will get used to the yoga poses each week and will be able to see your progress in your strength and flexibility.
