Yoga Class Descriptions

MIND-BODY MOVEMENT   –   Explore the richness of the relationship between your mind and your body. This class, based on Somatic principals, uses simple, gentle exercises to help restore optimal resting length and function to muscles that have become painfully tight due to stress, trauma, repetitive motions and/or unconscious habits. The focus of this class will be to restore sensory motor awareness to the brain and muscular system.  Gentle asanas will also be incorporated to further enhance flexibility, strength and balance for overall well-being.  This class is gentle and suitable for all.

RESTORATIVE – A perfect opportunity to experience a deep state of relaxation where the body can release and heal. Experience prop supported postures with long holds that reduce stress and bring flexibility and balance to the mind and body. Simply let go and surrender. Give your body the natural gift of rejuvenation. Blocks, blankets, bolsters, and straps are optional, and you’ll receive personal assistance for set-up in restorative postures.  This class inspires all levels and adults.

Any physical exercise done with breath awareness becomes yoga; anything done without the breath is just a physical practice.
