"In the body-mind-spirit practice of Hatha yoga, we are becoming more and more aware of how we move, how we position our bodies, how we breathe, where we are in our minds, how we feel throughout our being, how we might move into a sense of stillness."

~Mark Stephens

Gentle Classes

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

Nourish Classes

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

Restorative Classes

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:

reduce stress

relieve tension

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
