Gentle Yoga is a wonderful way to begin your yoga practice! We move slowly and specifically, introducing and developing standing, seated, and supine poses. Gentle classes are soothing and balancing, allowing you to calm the mind, center the breath, and access openness in the body. This class is encouraged for yoga students at all levels, newcomers or long-time yogis, as a welcoming and refreshing way to encourage your practice.
Core yoga is a dynamic, challenging class that works the entire body and specifically targets the core area from the abs through the thighs.

Each class will be different, come play & explore!

Yin & Meditation
Yin & Meditation is a beautiful way to explore and/or deepen your experience of the Self through meditation practice. We will begin class with gentle, nourishing and deep yin poses, and then transition into a meditation practice that is focused on becoming more intimate and familiar with the inner presence and bliss that is your True Self. It’s an opportunity to approach yourself with love, joy and playfulness. There are many forms of meditation, and we will explore different kinds of meditation each week, but overall we will cultivate your ability to hold various aspects of experience (body sensations, thoughts and emotions) in your awareness and to view them from a different perspective, and nurture states of spiritual feeling like peace, love, kindness, abundance, and joy with rich visualizations. This class is open to anyone at any level of meditation practice. Come with an open mind and a desire to explore and play in this experience.
