Relax & Restore
If you want to feel restored...
deeply relax with these gentle warm ups and long held poses, designed to nourish, restore, and revitalize the body and the mind. In restorative yoga, we use yoga props to support the body and create ease and deep relaxation. Beginners welcome.
If you want to relax and relieve tension while nurturing the body...Yin yoga is a practice of long held postures in stillness either seated or laying on the ground. Yin places gentle stress on the connective tissue to stimulate cells to repair, rebuild and to help move fluid and energy through the tissues. We utilize the breath to calm the nervous system and mindfulness to connect with sensations that arise in our bodies and mind. Yin yoga combines Hatha yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Mindfulness to form a beautiful quiet practice. All levels welcome.
If you want to be guided through relaxation...Yoga Nidra translates to Yogic Sleep – Yoga Nidra is a shift that allows us to drop beneath the mental and emotional activity of the mind to a state of deep consciousness that promotes extreme relaxation by using guided words & imagery all while in a deeply relaxing posture using blankets, bolsters and blocks to support us. This offers a safe space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as opportunity to release long-held emotions just by being guided. Nothing to do, nothing to think, just allowing yourself to rest while listening.
Roll, Release & Strengthen

This class will take you through a mix of Pilates/Yoga inspired exercises and gentle foam or ball rolling techniques to help you build strength and stability, improve posture and reduce muscle tension. Whether you do arm balances or child’s pose, this class is a great compliment to your yoga routine.
