Tensegrity, Restore and Renew*

Quietly settling the body into a gentle rhythm using the foundations of tensegrity (tension and integrity), relaxing and balancing muscles and fascia, inviting ease and grace into the body.
Soothing the nervous system further, we will move gently and consciously (remaining mostly on the ground) releasing deeply into surface and organ tension.  With restorative postures supported with blankets, blocks, bolsters and eye pillows we will satiate the parasympathetic nervous system…completely holding oneself in a ‘hammock’ of support and kindness.

Gentle Yoga*

This class is for all levels seeking a slow-pace, long luxurious stretch of the whole body.  Some poses will be held in a YIN like manner and some poses will be restorative in nature.  A perfect fit for anyone new to yoga and who would like to explore the depths of all different shapes.  All levels welcome.

Yin

Yin Yoga provides an opportunity to open the body and calm your mind in a slow paced environment. By holding postures for an extended amount of time (3-5 min) you will enjoy increased circulation and improved flexibility by lengthening both the connective and muscle tissues. Long, deep stretching will bring balance to an active lifestyle. All levels welcome.
