Students will work systematically with physical postures, breathing techniques, relaxation and meditation, to bring vitality to the body and serenity to the mind. Experience yoga for your whole being. Suitable for all regardless of fitness level, health conditions or age. Teachers will provide modifications for your unique needs.
 

Gentle Yoga

Gentle yoga is slow, deliberate, and respectful of each student’s unique physique. Great for seniors, recovering over-achievers, injured athletes and reforming couch potatoes. Slow down and gain the deeply rewarding benefits of safe, invigorating movement, guided concentration, breathing, and balance exercises, all amidst good company! Your nervous system will thank you. No experience necessary.
 

Gentle/Level 1

For new and continuing students. This is a less vigorous Level 1 class.
 

Level 1+

Students with little or no experience of yoga will learn foundational poses, safe alignment and basic “vocabulary” to practice yoga with confidence and care. Continuing and/or returning students will learn to refine their current yoga practice and discover a new level. Everyone will experience their breath and body in mind-expanding ways in a safe and friendly environment. All props, including mats, are available. Your posture and outlook on life may improve!
 

Slow Flow

This class is an all levels class. Slow Flow is all about meditation in motion. You will flow in and out of postures at a slow, mindful, nourishing, and graceful pace so that you have time to explore what feels good to your body. Emphasis will continue to be on proper alignment and connecting conscientious movement with conscientious breathing. You will leave this class feeling grounded and calm.
 

All Levels

This well-rounded, full spectrum class welcomes anyone familiar with a variety of basic yoga poses, and a desire to delve deeper into the breadth of yoga’s life-affirming practices. An All Levels class is meant to challenge but not discourage you, to nudge everyone to practice at their own, most astonishing level. Props and guidance are available to help make the class accessible but please no acute injuries.
 

Chair Yoga

Chair-Assisted Yoga is for those who find it difficult to get down on, or up from, the floor, for any variety of reasons. Anyone can enjoy the benefits of relaxation, conscious breathing, and gentle exercise in this class. Students are encouraged to use available props like chairs and walls to practice exercises that support balance, strength, and mobility. You’ll learn how daily activities are opportunities to practice yoga exercise that will improve your balance, coordination, concentration and sense of well being–and you can practice at home in your easy chair!
 

Yin

This class is appropriate for all levels and abilities. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive, static, low to the ground postures, held for long periods of time (3 to 5 minutes), with muscles in a relaxed state the entire class. This way, the dense connective tissues in and around the muscles and joints are stimulated, somewhat stretched, rehydrated, and ultimately strengthened. All in all, the mobility of your connective tissues are enhanced. Use of props is highly encouraged. Yin Yoga is meant to complement and supplement your usual more active, standing, and dynamic postural sequences.
 

Slow Flow and Yin

This is an all levels class and the perfect balance of everything you need in one class. The first half of the class will be spent enhancing your strength, balance, alignment, and breath awareness by slowly moving in and out of a variety of sequences and standing poses. The second half of the class will be spent doing low to the ground longer held poses to promote vitality, hydration, mobility, and strength
 

Yoga for Healthy Bones

Scientific studies have shown that yoga can prevent and reverse bone loss. In this class, we will practice poses that will safely build and strengthen your bones. This class is inspired by Dr. Loren Fishman’s “Yoga for Osteoporosis Method”.
 

Yoga for a Healthy Back

For all levels and abilities, this class will use yoga poses and sequencing specifically tailored to anyone looking to focus on strengthening, supporting, healing, and/or maintaining a healthy back and spine. Explore safe, adaptable, and effective yoga postures including standing, seated, backbends, twists, and forward bends. Specifically designed to enhance strength, flexibility, and core stability.

Yoga’s Practical Applications

Yoga’s practical applications include stress reduction, rehabilitation after illness or injury, improved strength, flexibility, focus, and self confidence.  The yogic approach to exercise rehabilitation and personal growth reflects thousands of years of practice and refinement by people seeking happiness, health, and ease.  Yoga’s ancient and time tested formulas for healthy living can help manage contemporary stress related discomforts and ailments.
