Yoga

Yoga is an integration of body, mind, breath, and spirit steeped in thousands of years of tradition. It brings awareness and flexibility to body and mind while increasing well-being and fostering compassion towards yourself and others. You don’t need to be flexible to practice yoga; you just need to have an open mind!

  • Gentle Yoga is suitable for everyone. It includes seated and standing stretches, gentle movement, and a focus on breath awareness. This class is appropriate for those with limited mobility or other physical concerns, or for those who are just interested in moving at a slower pace. Meditation, mindfulness and deep relaxation are integral to this practice.
  •  Yoga Flow links classical yoga posture and creative variations into fluid movement using the breath. This class is faster-paced and can be vigorous, but is still appropriate for all levels of experience (we always offer appropriate modifications). When mind, body, breath, and spirit unite in the flow it becomes a moving meditation.
  • Yin Yog begins with a gentle flow sequence and core exercise to warm up the body and prepare it for deep stretching and relaxation. Yin energy is represented by winter, night time and an inward focus. Postures are held on the floor for 3-5 minutes to cultivate this quiet, peaceful space in the body and mind, with soft lighting and soothing music. Yin postures are passive, allowing the joints and connective tissues to stretch and release tension. The focus on deep breathing through the postures to keep the mind quiet and reflective during this slow-paced, gentle class.
