Description: A slow, juicy stretch that targets the connective tissues of the body. This is a great supplement to all other forms of physical activity that generally stress the big muscle groups of the body. In Yin we practice relaxing the body in order to stretch and stress the fascia, ligaments, and bones. All poses are seated, supine, or prone and held anywhere from 3-5 minutes. This practice offers physical, mental, and emotional release. Readings, loving-kindness aspirations, pranayama, and meditation are integral to this class.

Descriptions: Hatha Flow- Experience your body in fluid motion as movement and breath become one. I love to link movement and breath in dance-like flow sequences. Don't worry, you don't need to be a dancer to come to this class! Class includes opening meditation and breath-work, warm-ups, flow series, relaxing cool down. and of course a nice long Shavasana (final resting pose). Expect to sweat, but leave feeling grounded and relaxed.
Yin- A slow, juicy stretch that targets the connective tissues of the body. This is a great antidote to all other forms of physical activity that generally stress the big muscle groups of the body.

This practice offers physical, mental, and emotional release.
Hatha- A great class to become acquainted with the basics. Students will build strength and ease by moving through flowing sequences and pausing for longer held postures. Prepare to work, but also feel free to relax and take what you need.
Restorative- A wonderful antidote to the busyness of life, restorative yoga offers balancing medicine to your taxed nervous system and over-stimulated body and mind. All poses are seated, prone or supine, and your body will be supported by multiple props so that you can melt into the pose without any muscular effort required. Poses are held for 5- 20 minutes, and students are encouraged to wear layers including socks since there is very little movement in this class. Whether you're recovering from an illness or injury, or you simply need a break from your busy day, this class will offer a time out to nourish and relax.
