Drop in classes when space is available at $18.00 a class upon request.
All students can make up missed classes on alternate days upon request and when space is available.
The focus of each class is on creating physical and emotional balance, self awareness, self compassion and self care. Both Men and Women are welcome.
All classes involve deep relaxation, body awareness, experiencing a variety of yoga movements and postures, deep and gentle stretching, creative yoga flows, building strength and exploring breathing techniques. Breath awareness paired with conscious relaxation helps us to recover healthy breathing habits and calm the nervous system for rejuvenation and healing. Inspirational readings are also included.
The Thursday and Saturday classes are designed to include and support new and experienced students. More attention is given to learning the basic “structure” or alignment of the poses at the beginning of each new session, taking time to become comfortable with new poses or going deeper into each pose for those with experience. Saturday classes will include more time spent in deep guided relaxation.
Tuesday is designed for those with some yoga experience, but still follows a gentle yoga philosophy with deep relaxation.
