Yoga Therapy class is Yoga designed to accommodate sore knees, backs, necks, etc. we provide individual attention to adapt each pose to your level. This allows you to participate even if you have not done yoga before or are rehabilitating an injury. This class moves at a slower pace and does not usually get down onto the floor. We use a chair for support and learn how to bring movement and circulation into tender places without aggravating existing sore spots. We have a very relaxing and enjoyable time together.
Meditation for Busy Minds
Everyone can meditate! This class is for everyone who wishes to explore meditation and have personalized support. Beginners and seasoned meditators are welcome. Meditation is a natural human ability and it can feel relaxing, or blissful, surprising or comforting. Meditation is a way of being with yourself that supports your daily life. When we take time to get into a meditative state, we emerge refreshed and with a stronger connection to the things we love. Meditation can feel like your favorite time of the day. Each week will be different, so you will gain the greatest benefit if you can attend consistently. Light movement will be incorporated into each session.
