Beginning Yoga Beginning Yoga – A class that introduces you to yoga postures (asana) and proper alignment; to the importance of yogic breathwork (pranayama); to calming the mind using dharana (focus) and dhyana (meditation); and the path path… This is the class that opens the door, but you have to walk thru . Oh, and the path is yours, whatever you shall make it. Yoga is not a religion, but it can draw you closer to your spiritual connection or you can just enjoy all the physical benefits. When the student is ready, there’s a class somewhere, and we kinda like this one!!!!

Go with the Flow Go with the Flow – All Levels – Sometimes we need a more vigorous practice to release stress and tension that has our bodies and minds wrapped so tight, and sometimes we need a more gentle practice in acceptance of our selves just as we are and to honor our gentle spirit. This is an all levels class that offers both options, but (as always in life on the mat and off the mat) the choice is always yours. At all classes, options will be give to explore and observe our Yin natures (passive/accepting) or our Yang natures (aggressive/ moving & changing)

Loving Kindness and Gentle Yoga with Meditation Loving Kindness Gentle Yoga & Meditation – A passive practice to open the heart, the mind and the body. So much of our external world pulls on us too tightly with demands and deadlines. As a result, we begin to constrict in resistance. This constriction has us living too tight in our bodies, in our minds and in our hearts. We forget that the greatest thing we can give to ourselves and to each other is acceptance, kindness and love. Each class will conclude with a seated Loving kindness Meditation – just what we need to set a positive intention for ourselves and extend more love out & into the world. And, doesn’t our world need it? Do you?
