Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a deeply quiet and contemplative form of practice.  By holding seated postures without striving or forcing, we explore the restorative, healing potential of the yin aspect of our intrinsic (yin-yang) energy.  Yin Yoga allows us to experience how our energy connections affect our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.  Participants are encouraged and assisted to modify poses as necessary and to work at their own level as they build strength, flexibility and balance over time.  Consistent, patient Yin yoga practice promotes enduring self-acceptance and inner peace.

Yin Restorative Yoga

A very quiet and contemplative form of yoga, which cultivates self acceptance and our ability to live in the present moment, Awareness of our connection between our energy centers and meridians and how they affect our physical, emotional and spiritual life are a benefit. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.

Restorative Yoga

“Come relax, heal and destress in a totally supportive enfironment with this weekly restorative class. Poses are done on the floor with the use of a lot of props, such as bolsters, blankets and blocks.  This allows the body to settle, the muscles to relax and open in a gentle way.  Restorative yoga is wonderful for healing the mind and body.  A regular relaxation practice is important! Let’s support each other and do it together.

Moon Yoga

In this evening flow, we combine breath and movement, moving slowly to feel and build strength.  Starting with a breathing meditation, moving into a summer evening flow, ending quietly with relaxation.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini (meaning “Coiled Energy”) Yoga is one of the most rapidly effective yoga practices.  It awakens and develops the Navel Point, which is the center for balance, focus and power. This area is where the Kundalini energy is stored.  Once your Kundalini energy is stimulated,  it moves through the tissues of the body, balancing the endocrine and nervous systems, the Chakras and the Electro-Magnetic field.  The practice is safe for all levels.  Utilizing the breath to dissolve crystallized energy blocks and body locks to channel the powerful energy to all parts of the body, students are guaranteed to have a positive Kundalini experience.

Strength, Stretch, and Flow
