Yin and Meditation
This class provides deep stretches for the hips, legs and spine, held for periods of up to 5 minutes, to challenge the mind to surrender and allow the body to open. Meditation instruction is given to develop an ability to stay in the present moment, mindful of the breath and body sensations. Open to all levels.
Gentle and Restorative Yoga
Restorative is pure bliss and relaxation. Postures are on the floor, supported with props for gentle, therapeutic release of tension. Poses are held for long periods of time; up to 20 minutes, allowing the nervous system to completely unwind.
Perfect for anyone in need of healing or recovery from stressful life conditions, trauma, injury, surgery or major change. The restorative poses provide an ideal foundation for meditative healing and the experience is enhanced with the support of massage and emotional aromatherapy.
Friday 12:00 – 1:00pm
A slower paced class which is great for beginners as well as students seeking a more introspective approach to their yoga practice with deep stretching and mindful breathing.
Tuesday 9:30 – 11:00am
This class flows along with the breath. Expect a faster pace, strong poses, core work and arm balances. The last part of the class is spent on the floor, developing flexibility and mindfulness before soothing the nervous system in final relaxation. Options are always given for modification, and permission to move along at your own pace, so participation in this class is open to everyone.
