(These are descriptions of the classes we offer. Some classes are seasonal, and will not appear on our current schedule. Our schedule is on the home page)

Gentle Yoga  is the perfect class for beginners. The practice focuses on gentle stretching and   features postures intended to improve flexibility and balance. Students are guided and encouraged to listen to their bodies and be gentle with themselves. We encourage the use of blocks, blankets and bolsters for support.

Yoga for all levels is, as the title implies, a class suitable for all levels of experience.  Newer students will learn and practice the rudiments of yoga, while within the same class, intermediate and advanced students are given the opportunity to take their practice to a deeper level. 

Fitness Yoga  is geared toward those who want a sweat-inducing, cardio-focused practice, that combines core-strengthening, muscle-toning and flexibility-building for an all-over workout that will leave you spent, but happy. This class is not for the faint of heart. Nor, for that matter, those with bad hearts. You. Will. Work.

Sunset & Sunrise Flow 
guides you through poses in a Vinyasa style, beginning with the basics, but featuring the opportunity to pursue somewhat more challenging poses. Props are encouraged to allow each body to achieve every pose. Sunset Flow is great for both beginners, unfamiliar with the practice, and for more experienced yogis who are looking for a gentle, relaxing sequence.

Tai chi is a noncompetitive martial art known for both its defense techniques and its health benefits. As an exercise, it comprises gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness. It has been shown to improve balance control, fitness, and flexibility, and to reduce the risk of falls in older people. Tai Chi's health training concentrates on relieving the physical effects of stress on the body and mind.  The ultimate purpose of tai chi is to allow the 'qi' or life energy within us, to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body.

Women's Moon Circle Yoga (for all levels) Offered monthly, on the full moon (see our schedule for this month's class) this class is designed to help the women in our community by specifically incorporating poses designed to address reproductive health, strengthen the pelvic floor, release emotion trapped in the body, and reconnect us to self, and to divinity. We will create safe and compassionate space for movement by going at a steady pace and regularly including restorative poses. Students leave feeling gooood.
