I am pleased to offer a variety of classes for those at different levels in their practice. Here are some brief explanations.
Gentle Yoga: Class uses mindfulness in stretches and postures to increase body awareness, increase range of motion, and improve overall health. Deep relaxation, breathing techniques and short meditation practices will be used to rejuvenate and re-balance your body, mind and spirit.
Restorative Yoga: The intention of restorative yoga is to promote deep relaxation and healing. Props are an integral part of this class, allowing the body to completely melt into each posture. Each week will feature restorative postures, pranayama, meditation, and other techniques designed to calm the mind, release tension from the body and refresh the spirit. This is a gentle, all levels practice.
Yin Yoga: Yin yoga is a quiet, meditative practice. While more traditional hatha yoga focuses on stretching and strengthening muscles, the long-held poses of yin target the joints and connective tissue in a safe way. Most poses are seated, prone, or supine and held for 3 to 5 minutes. Usage of props are encouraged to help explore the poses more fully. This is a gentle, all levels practice.
Yin/Restorative Yoga: This gentle, all levels practice will combine elements of both Yin and Restorative Yoga. Class will begin with the more active poses of a Yin practice and end with fully supported Restorative poses.
Yoga at the Museum: This gentle, slow-paced class helps students stretch and tone their muscles, release chronic tension, and cultivate calm and creativity. Bring a mat and come join us!i
