This 75 minute morning yoga class will explore postures and breathing techniques that cultivate ease and openness, strength and flexibility, awareness and contentment.

All levels welcome!

*This class is open to beginners, and continuing beginners; however, it is not recommended for those recovering from illness or injury. Please be prepared to work hard, as many of the sequences are physically demanding.  Power yoga is a physically demanding practice; please check with your health care provider before attending if you have any concerns.

Restorative Yoga is for all levels and all styles, especially those of us who are limited by a stress-filled mind, physical injury, illness, chronic arthritis, or joint replacements.  A gentle yoga practice will warm and relax the body and center the mind.  We will explore supportive and healing postures that promote well-being and restore a sense of balance.  Wear comfortable clothing.  All supportive props are available at the studio, and chairs will be available for those of us who will not be practicing seated postures on the floor.  Please contact your health care provider to discuss any of your concerns and your readiness to attend.

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga is grounded in the Asthanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition.  This is a 90 minutes class designed to build strength and flexibility through vigorous movement and use of the ujjayi (victorious) breath. We will spend time working on individual poses, as well as cultivating the “flow,” linking movement to movement through the breath, which is one of the joys of vinyasa (moving and breathing at the same time on purpose). We will learn modifications that support us where we are weak and ones that challenge us where we are strong. *This class is open to beginners, however, it is not recommended for those recovering from illness or injury. Please be prepared to work hard, as many of the sequences are physically demanding.  Power yoga is a physically demanding practice; please check with your health care provider before attending if you have any concerns.
