Level 1 Hatha Yoga
A great class for any level of Yoga practitioner, and very appropriate for beginners. It is an asana practice that consists of clear instruction in basic yoga postures, alignment, and yogic principles. This is different than gentle Yoga, in that it is meant to be basic, not necessarily easy. During these sessions you will learn the basics of Hatha Yoga, which utilizes a gentle flow of poses to improve proper alignment and breathing techniques in order to increase strength, stamina and improve flexibility. Please join us and empower yourself with this self-regulating practice for stress relief! You will leave feeling class relaxed, rejuvenated, and restored in mind, body, and spirit.
Level 1-2 Hatha Yoga
Level 1-2 Hatha classes are multi-level, where thoughtful class planning, sequencing, pose modifications, and often, props, help to deepen and facilitate your yoga experience. Teachers will offer modifications for beginners and more challenging variations for more advanced students as well. Elements of meditation and pranayama will also be focused on in hatha classes, making them truly well-rounded opportunities to learn and explore your yoga practice. Mindfulness and attention to detail will help train presence practice.
Hatha Flow & Restore
A class tailored to the students. These classes are designed to utilize classical methods and principles of Hatha Yoga while adding a unique flair of flowing movement to help the body and mind unwind to a calmer, more peaceful state by the end of your class. This class helps students really connect the relationship between the body and breath through the flow of movement always set to a mindful music playlist to keep you inspired and moving. Depending on the flow of the class, the teacher will take you through restorative postures to begin and/or end class utilizing props and giving each student a moment to pause, integrate your practice and fully relax. This class is sure to attune you to places in your body that you may be ignoring and will help release it from accumulated daily stresses.

Chair Yoga (Coming Soon)
Have you tried yoga and given up because you couldn’t get down to the floor? Have you had knee or hip replacement and find yoga painful or uncomfortable? Are you “not as young as you used to be” and want to work on ways of regaining strength and flexibility? Maybe none of these apply to you but you are a caregiver for someone who falls into one of these categories. In this class you will learn ways to modify traditional yoga poses for someone who is sitting in a chair. Yoga done in a chair will help build strength, endurance, balance and stamina just like traditional yoga does. Whether you are sitting or standing, yoga will help clear your mind of mental clutter, improve your concentration, and calm and steady your emotions.

Yin yoga is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy practice. Yin yoga works deeply into our body.
It targets our deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body — rather than the muscles.
Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles.
