RESTORATIVE YOGA/DE-STRESS

Relax, heal and de-stress in a very supportive and quiet environment.  Poses are done on the floor, with the use of of props; such as bolsters, blankets and blocks.  This allows the muscles and body to relax and open, in a gentle way.  Restorative Yoga is wonderful for healing the mind, body and soul.  This is an all levels yoga class and beginners are welcome.

Yoga flow classes combine breath and movement, to heat the body, bringing more oxygen to the blood.  In a flow class there is a continuous rhythm of yoga poses, that safely take you deeper into your practice.  This builds strength, flexibility, and endurance. This is an intermediate level yoga class and some yoga experience is recommended.  This yoga class is not for beginners.

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini 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 and beginners are welcome.
