    Class consists of pelvic stabilization, back and shoulder strengthening and stretching. There are no standing poses in this class. 
    Appropriate for All levels. Pregnant clients should consult instructor prior to registering for this class. 

  • Yin Yoga
  • Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. The postures will be held from 1-5 minutes. The use of props will be integrated into the hold of the postures so that the muscles can fully relax and the connective tissue can then be reached. The yin portion of the class will last approximately 40 minutes, we will then do a few Sun Salutations to address the yang (heating) portion of the class and finish with deep relaxation.

  • Gentle Yoga
  • Enjoy a class with poses and breath techniques woven together to make a gentle, beautiful tapestry for your practice. This class is appropriate for beginners.

  • Barre Express
  • A slightly shorter version of Barre. Barre classes provide lengthening and chiseling results fast using small isolated holds with tiny movements and tremendous mental connection. Expect an extreme challenge and prepare to leave feeling calmly energized with this hands on personal group training session.
