Slow Flow + Restore

This class is designed to open the body with gentle, slow, and traditional yoga postures and movements. It’s a combination of postures coordinated with the breath, performed at a gentle pace which allows time to be present in each pose. After some gentle movement, the class will transition to a restorative practice with longer holds, deeper stretches, and relaxation techniques. This class provides the opportunity to explore your practice, to find the play between strength and flexibility, stability and ease, and to gain a greater understanding of physical alignment and balance. Suitable for all-levels, beginners welcome.

YinYoga 

Yin Yoga is a slow paced, meditative asana practice. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. This practice aligns with the traditions of Traditional Chinese Medicine and focuses on tending to physical and subtle (emotional/mental)  bodies. 

Restorative Yoga 

This class focuses on nourishing body and mind through passive stretches supported by bolsters, blankets and blocks. Postures are held for longer durations with an emphasis on support, comfort, and breath. This class features long holds and aids in relaxation, release and renewal. Suitable for all levels. 

Private Yoga

Private yoga classes allow you to work on the poses and stretches that make sense for you on your schedule and at your own pace. These private sessions allow you to ease into yoga in a safer manner, with proper alignment and a clear focus on your goals and needs.
