A consistent yoga practice gives us the tools to deal with life’s adversities with grace and courage. The benefits of yoga have been well documented — increased strength, focus, and flexibility. All ages are welcome to this practice!
Juniors: Students over the age of 16 are welcome to attend our open drop in classes. Students 12 and older may attend with the studio’s permission.
Seniors: We appreciate seniors who are new to yoga, are returning to their practice, or want to increase their flexibility and strength. If you are new, please attend our Basics for Beginners on Saturdays at 11:00 am for an evaluation and suggestions as to which classes may be best for you.
Hatha Yoga is ideal for practitioners seeking a more gentle, restorative practice. In this style, we hold the poses for several breaths, delving deeper and deeper with every exhalation. Each class has different poses combined with breathing exercises, final relaxation, and a short meditation. This practice is perfect for athletes looking to improve their game by increasing their flexibility and stamina. Hatha is based on the series originated by Swami Satchidananda.
This Hatha practice is modified for students with special needs or physical limitations. This class improves balance and coordination while relieving habitual stress. *BEGINNER APPROVED*
In Vinyasa, we use the breath to move from one pose to the next and will work up a sweat. This carefully sequenced practice allows the body to release deeply held tightness and tension. Classes may incorporate music, candles, essential oils, and physical adjustments. Vinyasa classes are geared to students with some experience, though all levels are welcome. This practice is loosely based on Ashtanga Yoga.
You don’t have to be a beginner to enjoy a slow-moving practice.
