TUESDAYS 6.15-7.15PM: HATHA FLOW
This class will include a flowing sequence of classic postures that will leave you feeling supple and refreshed. We will move with the breath to connect the body and mind and help you find a steady pace that you can maintain with awareness and integrity. Class may also include basic pranayama techniques. Suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike.
TUESDAYS 7.30-8.30PM & sundays 5.30-6.30pm: RElease & reSTORE
This gentle class will work on releasing deeply held patterns of tension and restoring vital energy. The first part of the session will focus on inner body work to develop awareness of the physical, emotional and energetic aspects of the body. We will explore techniques that show us how to listen to the body and understand where and how we hold on to patterns of tension. This will be followed by slow-paced, yin-style postures to help us sense and release specific areas of the body, leading to greater flexibility and energy flow in the body. This session is suitable for all levels.
THURSDAYS 6.15-7.15PM: HATHA II
This intermediate-level class offers a full asana practice including inversions and arm balances. We will explore subtle alignment, pranayama and bandhas to feel and refine the flow of prana in the body. Perfect for yogis who want to deepen their practice and work up to more advanced postures.
sundays 4-5pm: yoga basics
In this class, we focus on breath and alignment as we work with the fundamental yoga poses to strengthen and stretch the body in a safe way. This class is appropriate for those who are fairly new to yoga as well as a refresher for yogis looking to refine their basic poses.
