Free OUtdoor Classes!
Select Saturdays through the summer I will be offering FREE outdoor GENTLE yoga classes. It is a great pleasure to reconnect not only in person, but also in nature!

virtual group classes
June 28th - September 3rd, 2021
a combination of hatha and flow
Throughout these gentle classes many options are given for the poses to allow for comfort and ease. We explore poses on our backs, on our bellies, kneeling and standing. Attention is put into simpler transitions that allow the body breaks between the positions so as not to strain those with sensitive joints. Static poses from traditional hatha yoga are mixed with the more dynamic practice of vinyasa yoga (flow).
These classes are perfect for those who may:
enjoy lower intensity classes
have some physical limitations
be beginning yoga students
VIRTUAL: jun 28, jul 5, 12, 26, aug 2, 9, 16, 30 @ 7:30pm
FREE OUTDOOR*: july 10 @ 9am (12ppl)*more dates to come!
gentle yoga followed by a long restorative pose
Similar to the GentleGlow class but we take a little more time to unwind and include some restorative yoga to soothe the nervous system.
The perfect class to:
reduce stress & tension
stretch & strengthen
comfort the nervous system
VIRTUAL: jun 30, jul 8, 15, 29, aug 5, 19, sept 2 @ 8pm
fully supported poses held for 5-20min each
Using a variety of yoga props or props found around the home (pillows, blankets, etc.), we fully support the body in a variety of poses to allow the muscles to release, the mind to let go, and our body to shift from fight or flight mode (stress) to rest and relax mode.
The perfect class to:
calm the nervous system
These classes have many benefits that include:
reducing the amount of the stress hormone cortisol circulating in the body
helping boost the immune system and accelerate the body's natural healing process
helping us release unnecessary habitual tension in the body and mind
helping us to discover where in the body we hold our stress/tension
helps to improve digestive function
quieting of the mind
soothing for emotional pain
VIRTUAL: aug 3, 31 @ 8pm

ONLINE PRIVATE SESSIONS
yoga sessions created just for you
If you are looking for yoga to help you on a more personal level, private sessions are a great option. I work with students to specifically address individual concerns as well as with those students who are looking to deepen their practice.
For the beginner yogi who would like to get some important basics down before joining a group class, or even in addition to group classes, private sessions offer a personalized way to familiarize yourself with many common poses. These sessions will also guide you to move into the poses in a safe and effective way for your body so as to help avoid injury and to gain the most benefit of the poses.
for those with injuries/limitations
Many of us deal with injuries or chronic limitations as we move through life. Personalized sessions allow you to explore more options for your favourite poses so that you can more easily move into them in a class setting. Learn how to effectively use blocks, blankets and other props to support your practice so that your body can continue to enjoy the benefits of your yoga poses.
for those with specific goals in mind
Maybe you are looking for flexibility or strengthening a particular area in the body, or maybe you are looking to reduce stress and anxiety. Yoga is a lovely option for working to improve many aspects of your personal health and well-being.

improve sleep/decrease anxiety
