Beginner Yoga is now a Weekly Class!
Can I do Yoga? Yes you can. If you can breathe, you can do yoga! This class is designed to give anyone the basics for meditation, breath control, and an asana (posture) practice. Improve not only your physical strength, balance, and flexibility, but also your mental and spiritual well being. The goal of this class is to provide each student with a solid foundation that will build self confidence and support a consistent yoga practice.
Deep Hips is a challenging 90-minute class that systematically stretches the connective tissues surrounding the hip structure, leaving the lower body with a sense of length, openness, and balance. Props are provided and greatly encouraged…to achieve alignment and intended sensations and comfort throughout the practice. Open to all levels.

Restorative Yoga is practiced on the floor, or on the wall and uses props to align the body into gentle chest openers, back bends, spinal twists and forward folds. Each of the postures are held for 5 minutes or more. Deep breathing and mindful attention to the sensations of the body and the experience of stillness is a primary focus. This class is perfect for any level student who wants to restore and renew body, mind and spirit by means of a quiet, introspective practice. It is considered to be a healing practice for people who suffer with anxiety, depression, insomnia, inflammatory diseases, back pain, side effects from chemotherapy, and many stress induced symptoms in the body/mind.
Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to a deep physical practice. This sequence of Yin postures are held for a long period of time to target the deep connective tissues of the body and to promote the flow of energy particularly in the core body and hips.
This class is designed to counter the negative effects of a busy Yang lifestyle, sitting for long periods of time, or any sport that can create imbalance in the body. The practice is intended to facilitate a connection to the more Yin aspects of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
Blankets, blocks and a bolster will be used. If you have your own props, please bring them.

Rolling Your Way into Rest and Recovery with Monica WoodMost of us know how to work hard, but do you know how to rest well? If you’re like me, rest is not something I consistently do well. Aches and pains, stress from work or just racing thoughts can interfere with getting a good night’s sleep. Rest and recovery are two essential elements in building a stronger, more resilient mind and body. One problem that many people have is learning how to actually calm down the nervous system to allow ourselves to rest well. In this workshop you will be taught techniques to facilitate a relaxation response in the body using therapy balls and breathing techniques. The therapy balls will loosen the tight muscles and fascia that can be causing discomfort that will hinder your ability to relax. Adding specific breath practices will deepen the experience of calming down the body and mind. Whether you are an athlete training for an event, a busy mom, a stressed out student or a woman in menopause this workshop is one you don’t want to miss. To get the most effective experience, this will be held in the evening to get you ready for a good night’s sleep. Monday, August 28 5:45-7:45 $30
