Yoga- Is unique in that you are asked to close the eyes, relax and soften the muscles, through deeper postures and experience the self within. Postures are mainly on the floor and held for 3-5 minutes, targeting the connective tissues.

Restorative Yoga- Throughout 
the practice, the student will use props in order to find sublime comfort within each restorative pose. Finding slow passive movement, while the instructor guides them to release tension and work on different aspects of mind/body breath connections. We will focus on breathwork, nidras, and meditation in some classes.

Gentle Flow- In this class, postures are taught so that each pose links to the previous pose, creating a continuous “flow” of movement with the breath. Longer holds during the postures depending on the teacher or the particular class focus.

Yin/Yang- This class combines Yin yoga with a flow practice. The Yang segment allows us to integrate the openness and awareness gathered in the
Yinpotion into a sense of steadiness and alignment with a short, gentle vinyasa flow in our practice. This class is suitable for all levels.

Gentle/Beginner Yoga-  Maybe you have never tried yoga or you are just beginning, have injuries or need to take it slow, this class is for you.  We move slowly in this class yet you will feel you worked and stretch your body in a way you didn't think was possible.

Chair Yoga- If it is hard or you are unable to get on the floor, or maybe you need a little extra assistance with your balance this class is for you. We use chairs to help you feel safe and supported. Making yoga accessible to all.

All Levels- This is a class suitable for all, we move through postures offering different modifications or prop options for all levels. We may incorporate a little flow into the class but even a beginner will have time to find the breath in each posture.

Yoga Basics- In this class, we will explore postures noticing how they feel within the body, where the breath moves and where does the mind focus. Although we will explore standing and seated poses there will be transitions to accommodate all levels. If you are wanting to explore the finer point of a pose or just beginning your
yogic journey this is a great place to start. Meditation and mindfulness will be explored in this class.
