I am pleased to offer a variety of classes for those at different levels in their practice. Here are some brief explanations.
Community Donation Yoga: Community Yoga is a class designed to be accessible to all. We create the space for the integration of body, mind, and spirit. The 75 minute class incorporates different aspects of asana (postures) as well as pranayama (breath work) and meditation. This class is donation based. The suggested donation is $10 a class. Suggested donation means if you can put $10 in the box, please do. If you are not in a position to do so, contribute what you can. Nobody will be keeping track of individual donations. The recommended donation is not a bottom or top limit. You are welcome to use your pass as well. The donation class is one of the ways we make yoga accessible to everyone in our community. The intention is to create a nurturing environment to promote relaxation, healing, and inner care.
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.
Monthly Meditation (Donation Based): Meditation is a powerful tool to create inner peace and connection to the Self. Sitting with one another with a shared intention can be even more powerful. Class will begin with a brief series of movements and simple pranayama (breathwork) before the meditation session. Class is appropriate for all levels of yoga and meditation experience. Suggested donation is $5 or you are welcome to use your pass as well.
Monthly Yoga Nidra (Donation Based): Start your week off right with the deep relaxation of yoga nidra. Yoga nidra, which roughly translates to yogic sleep, is a powerful meditation technique in which you are guided into a deep state of relaxation while maintaining awareness. Class will begin with gentle movements to settle the energies of the body and will end with a long-held, supported savasana for the yoga nidra practice. Class is appropriate for all levels of experience. Suggested donation is $10 or you are welcome to use your pass as well.
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.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga: This class incudes classic and creative sun salutations with mindful alignment and attention to the breath. We warm the body with lots of movement and incorporate stillness and savasana. Prior experience preferred.
Yin Yoga: Yin yoga is a quiet, meditative practice. While more tradtional 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.
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
