Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Multiple Sclerosis, Arthritis, and other conditions that involve inflammation, pain, and fatigue can benefit from centering, breath-work, gentle movement, and meditation. Our Gentle Yoga class is appropriate for all levels of guests looking to be easy on themselves, especially those with the above conditions. The poses are worked with for 2-5 minutes, creating the opportunity to ease in and open up. Class ends with breath work and guided relaxation.
[ Ginger | Wed | 6:30-7:45 pm ]
This yoga class lasts one hour and 15 minutes. The first 10 minutes of class is spent centering (helping the mind to slow down and the body to begin unwinding). Centering is done lying down with the eyes closed. The next 50 minutes is spent in asana (movement). The poses taught in the class are safe for beginners along with those who have practiced yoga before. The last 15 minutes will be spent in guided deep relaxation (thoroughly relaxing the body and mind) or meditation (quieting the mind through observance of breath).

Chair yoga is safe for all experience levels and is targeted at those wanting a practice that allows for physical challenges-aging, knee injury, low back issues, balance concerns, wrist injuries, etc. Building strength and increasing flexibility-all from a chair! We will use breathing techniques, guided visualizations and deep relaxation to promote a sense of calm and well-being. Everything can be adapted and propped to support each individual’s needs.
Our Level I class is especially designed for students with limited movement, strength, and balance due to disease (e.g. fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetes, etc.) or other issues like total joint replacement, or other injuries. A variety of modifications will be given to aid each student’s capabilities during class.
Our Level II class is designed for students that have strength to stand and mild loss of balance and movement. Class uses the chair in standing poses as needed. A variety of modifications will be given to aid each student’s capabilities during class.
The I & II Class is suitable for both levels.

Hatha II recommends previous yoga practice. We will begin with 10 minutes of centering (helping the mind to slow down and the body to begin unwinding), then move to 50 minutes of asana (movement) that involves deeper/ longer held poses and poses that require prior yoga experience. This class is more physically challenging than the All Levels Yoga. Class will end with deep relaxation (thoroughly relaxing the body and mind) or meditation (quieting the mind through the observance of breath). Chanting is periodically practiced in this class.
[ Ginger | Tues | 9:30-10:45 am ]
Surya Namaskar is a class centered around the Sun Salutations. Centering, stretching, and warming up for the asana that make up the Sun Salutations consume the first part of class. Then, a period of self led movement allows the individual to work with the series at their own pace. The music is very grounding and intends on facilitating a foundational pull into the individual. A dash of Pranyam follows, and a guided Mediation closes class. The class follows the same schedule each week to help a meditative nature to slowly develop.
vinyasa flow (propped)
[ Kim | Wed | 3:30-4:30 pm ]
Vinyasa yoga links poses through the breath. The class begins with a warm up and poses are taught with slow focus on proper alignment before they meld their way together. Breath work, strength, balance and body awareness will be developed in every class. This class is for all levels (beginners included) and allows individuals with minor physical issues (back, knees, shoulders, balance, etc.) to enjoy a class with more flow between asanas (poses). Props aid you to move with grace as well as gain strength, flexibility & balance both physically and mentally. Props allow you to venture further into a pose you may have thought you were unable to do. Each class will teach proper alignment, breath work and relaxation at the completion of class. We end with restorative poses and meditation in savasana.
[ Kim | Mon | 6:30-7:45 pm ]
Yin and Restorative are quieter aspects of a yoga practice. This class opens the possibility of bringing your mental/physical & emotional states together in harmony. Yin/Restorative help to increase your balance, focus, and joy in living. This yoga class offers periods of stillness in each pose that opens deeper tissues, joints and helps to release and relax the body. Class is open to beginners and advanced yogis needing a slower, more relaxing practice.
Finding the Focus
[ Haley| Tues | 7:00-8:00pm ]
Each week the same poses are practiced with a shift in the focus. This class allows you to truly get the opportunity to learn these poses inside and out, while fine tuning them to the changing needs of the body. A wonderful class for those who need a slow pace, have had injuries, or are working to undo years of stress and strain.
[Haley | Thurs | 5:00--6:00 pm ]
Haley leads an uptempo class with holds and flows, breath awareness, and challenges. This class requires previous experience.
