Yoga Classes

Small Group Restorative Yoga*

De-stress and renew with deeply relaxing restorative yoga postures designed to relax, stretch, and bring you deeply into your own body and breath. Postures are fully supported by props and held for an extended time with very little, or even no effort. Guided meditations and visualizations help develop body awareness and give you tools that can be practiced at home and in life. Classes are small, with plenty of individual attention. This class is suitable for anyone who can lie on the floor, and is especially useful for people recovering from illness and/or injuries, or, as with most of us … stress.

Basic Beginner Hatha Yoga*

This class emphasizes an informed foundation in several basic postures at the beginner level.  What is yoga? Why does the breath matter?  How can I practice at home?  Standing postures, seated postures, kneeling postures, prone and reclining postures, and inversions are presented, discussed, and practiced.  Working with the breath is essential to yoga.  A few mudras (hand positions) and sitting meditation are included.  Yoga philosophy, and  some historical context are woven into the instruction.

Home Support Practice
