Find Your Pace
Yoga comes in various incarnations, however, it is a discipline that can be practiced by all. Through our practice, we learn to be mindful of our bodies - physical, mental and emotional. Using the focus on our breathing to turn attention inward, the mind can start to still the seemingly endless mental chatter and we can begin to find openess to all that surrounds us. Our movement on the mat helps to release stress and tension so that we can shed the layers that keep us from this physical, mental and emotional openess, clarity and peace.

If you are new to yoga, be assured that there is a way, shape and form for you. We recommend selecting a style of class based on your physical, mental and emotional needs. The pace of any given day may lead you to a different class. Please contact us with any questions and review About Yoga for a general overview of what to expect in class.
This series focuses on the foundations of Hatha Yoga in a hands-on, "how-to" format. Traditional poses and breathing exercises will be introduced and built upon each week. While this class appeals to beginners, it is also an opportunity for those rediscovering their practice or those wanting to reconnect with the foundations of the discipline.

Beyond Beginners Series
Deepen your awareness on the mat as you discover the subtleties of physical and energetic alignment in standing balance poses, sun salutations, back bending, forward folds and inversions.

Gentle Yoga & Meditation
Add a quiet break into your day. Close your eyes and watch your breath while you engage in a gentle yoga practice that slows you down and brings you more fully into the moment.

Write Your Yoga Community Class
In this informal writing class and gentle yoga class, we’ll investigate the notion of “samskaras,” or deeply embedded ideas about ourselves. What are we clinging to that is no longer serving us and how can we begin to let go? What are the authentic stories we yearn to tell instead? Through writing exercises, we’ll differentiate between the falsehoods that hold us back and the true tales we long to express. Poetry or Prose. Opening up with 60 minutes of gentle slow flow yoga to open our bodies and hearts, the final 30 minutes of class will focus on sharing what we have written the month before with writing assignments to take home and ponder for the month until we meet again.
