Yoga

Yoga enhances the awareness of the body and breath and can help you to develop a state of mental calm and emotional stability.  Yoga not only helps to lengthen and strengthen your muscles and increase your flexibility, but it is also one of the only things you can do for yourself that will work the outside and inside of your body. Yoga will help to massage your internal organs allowing them to release toxins and help keep you healthier inside and out.

We offer many different levels of yoga to suit most people. The classes we offer are wonderful for anyone who would like to reduce mental and physical stress. Each class will begin with breath-work as we center ourselves and will end with a relaxation mediation. Please wear comfortable clothing and if attending a live class, please bring a yoga mat and any yoga props you may need.

This is a wonderful way for everyone to experience the benefits of yoga, especially if you face some mobility challenges. The poses are done while you sit in a chair so the pelvis and hips are stabilized, enabling easier movement of the torso and arms. From this stable seat, modifications of many common yoga poses can be done without fear of injury or strain. These poses can bring mobility to all parts of the body in a safe and gentle way, help to clear the mind and relax the body. We start each class with breathing exercises and end it with a relaxation meditation and a shoulder massage.
