Hatha Yoga/ with Jenny Students move mindfully though various postures focus on strength, flexibility, meditation, circulating prana through specific body areas and yogic breathing techniques (pranayama). Props are welcomed and encouraged. Classes may also include Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep” relaxation practices.

Mysore Practice w/ Jeff Free. A led practice in the traditional mysore style- the counting of breaths in sanskrit is the only instruction. You learn the sequence and postures using your own growing confidence and experience as your teacher. Without dialogue, its a quiet opportunity in a busy world to connect to your body and work beneath the level of words or ideas.
TGIF Yoga / with Nadia Stretch, breathe, relax. Unwind after a hectic week on Friday evenings. This class invites you to slow things down a bit and decompress. Suitable for all those type-a's who would love to release some tension and recover a sense of relaxation, have some fun and feel supported.

For yoga to be a catalyst for transformation, find a class that fits your current capacity and yet challenges you to grow.
You are invited to drop-in on any class or to try it out. Use modifications for postures until your body and practice develop.
All our classes offer classic breathing and mindfulness techniques which help focus and refine your concentration.
