Yoga for Every Body
If you can breathe, you can do yoga! In our culture, there is a misperception that yoga is all about fancy poses. Like doing a one-handed handstand or twisting your body into a pretzel.
In reality, the physical practice of yoga (asana) is only a fraction of the practice of yoga. Being a yogi means knowing how to listen to, respect, and honor your body. Our yoga classes emphasize hearing your body’s “voice.” Everyone has a different body, so every yoga student needs to approach asanas differently. There is no universal “right” way to do a pose, and no judgment. You can go into a restful pose at any point during the practice if that’s what your body needs.
We teach every student to “stay on their own mats” and not compare themselves with others, or what they “used to” be able to do.
Classes are ALL Level unless otherwise noted and options will be provided based on individual needs. Use of props is encouraged. Not sure where to begin? Let’s chat!

Yin Yoga for YOUR Body:
YIN Yoga for YOUR Body: Having a balance of Yin and Yang in our bodies is key to having a healthy body image. Our culture tends to focus on more “Yang” activities and how these activities make us look in the outside. In this class, we go deep into the body and hold poses that target the connective tissues, bones, ligaments and joints…parts deep in our bodies that are not stretched or exercised in more active yoga classes and sports. If these areas are not worked, they become dehydrated and lose their elasticity. This practice will hydrate and stretch these areas beyond the muscles and help our bodies feel great from the inside out. Appropriate for ALL levels…plenty of options will be given.
Pranayama & Meditation:
Prana is our breath and the vital life force in our bodies. Pranayama is the relationship to our breath and teaches us to control the movement of our minds. The more we become aware of our breath, the more we are able to calm the mind and access and experience the bliss of our existence through meditation. This class will teach us about the breath and various techniques to access the breath, quiet the mind and turn into the sublime radiance of our hearts. This class will also teach us how to meditate! We will also explore what meditation is and what it is not.
