We explore different variations and styles of classic hatha yoga postures. The class blends honest awareness of our ‘edge in the pose”, our use of breath as a tool, & the wisdom of the sages have been passed down to guide us once we are there. “A perfect knot” Body Mind and spirit.
Start in the chair and stay in the chair, or transition to the wall and then to the yoga mat. Gentle approach for all levels to learn and practice. This setting is great for anyone who has limitations, wants to see what yoga is all about, or those who have a desk job who want to learn daily techniques for reducing the repetitious strain. A yoga mat is needed for under the chair and relaxation. (bring your own yoga mat or use one from the studio)

Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures. Note that ‘rest’ is different than sleep. Rest provides the body an oppotunity to renew and heal. Countless studies have proven the physical and emotional benefits of this.
Do yoga correctly and advance in your asanas quickly. Learn to do yoga safely, reveal a deeper understanding of your body, and take your practice further quickly and effectively. If you have a back pain or just want to prevent back pain or injury this class is also for you.

Yin is known as the Yoga of Flexibility. All postures are done close to the earth in stillness. It targets the joints of your lower body. It releases deeply held stress from the low back, hips and sacrum. The poses are held for longer periods of time to allow the stretch to reach deep into the ligaments that connect your bones together in these areas. This is where your flexibility comes from! Yin is a counter pose for your busy, hectic life! That is why yin yoga is called “the other half of your yoga practice”.
This class is suitable for all levels and you will be guided and nurtured through every posture.
