Fall Schedule
MONDAY
7:00 – 8:00pm Gentle Yoga

This gentle class is therapeutic and soothing to the soul. Practiced I a chair or on the floor, poses are deliberate and unhurried, finding true balance in this moving meditation. Especially supportive of students who are dealing with stress or injuries, this class is appropriate for students of all levels, including those new to yoga.

TUESDAY
7:30 – 8:30pm Yin Yoga

Yin/Restorative Yoga is a more relaxed practice that targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. It also includes supported postures by using bolsters/pillows, blankets and blocks that promote deep relaxation, and rejuvenate the nervous system. Postures are held for 3 to 5 min at a time. This type of meditative practice complements the more strenuous styles of yoga and is open to students of all levels.

SATURDAY
7:45 – 8:45am Vinyasa Yoga

This dynamic Vinyasa practice is always evolving. Expect a creative sequence in which your instructor unpacks complex poses by building on the foundations of flow. This class may include arm balances and inversions but will always conclude with a full savasana/meditation.
