gentle yoga

Beginning 9/3 @ 10:30am-11:45am

Gentle Yoga is taught as a Moving Meditation and welcomes every-body*. After a thorough warm-up (including simple ideas for home practice) we do poses gently and mindfully, being kind to hurt places and empowering ourselves to explore the inner world. Practicing yoga energizes, relaxes, and helps us access innate goodness and inner-wisdom; along the way we also get stronger, happier and more self-aware. *Students with joint replacement, injury or limited mobility are welcome (we have chairs), and may want to first contact teacher for a private session.

rise and align

Starting 9/17 @ 7:45am - 8:45am

A class to re-align and energize the body and mind through longer holds in a flow of foundational postures. Reconnect to your breath through pranayama practices and explore familiar postures in new ways. Enjoy therapeutic adjustments and yoga philosophy integrated throughout class. This class is great for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners.
