Moderate yoga classes explore the balance between effort and ease. The aim of this class is to strengthen the body by sustaining more challenging postures at a moderate pace and developing mental focus through meditation and breathing practices. This class is ideal for those with an existing yoga practice, though newcomers who feel fit and strong are also welcome.
Gentle yoga classes are meditative, fluid, and soothing, suitable for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. You experience slow movements to warm the body and release muscular tension, breathing techniques to calm the nervous system, and simple postures to build stability.
Prenatal yoga is designed to both nurture and challenge, promoting relaxation as well as strengthening of the muscles that support not only baby during pregnancy, but also the birth and the postpartum period.
Chair is an extra gentle yoga class that provides support while in seated postures and stability while in standing postures. You experience slow movements to warm the body and release muscular tension, breathing techniques to calm the nervous system, and simple postures to build stability. With a chair, many yoga asanas become comfortable, even if you have an injury. We are a wheelchair accessible studio, so truly all are able to practice.
