Yoga Class Descriptions

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and

opening your body through passive stretching. Restorative yoga helps provide physical and mental balance to prevent stress and anxiety by using props like bolsters, blocks, and blankets to fully support the body, facilitating deep relaxation.  This is a great class if you're recovering from an illness or injury or would like to find balance in your hectic life.

Healing Yoga

Healing yoga is combination of many types of yoga including gentle, restorative, yin, pranayama, meditation, and mindfulness helping to facilitate healing from within. We do a series of poses (asana) combined with mudra, breathwork, and other healing modalities including EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) aka Tapping. The healing takes place when we are allowed to quiet our minds, focus on the present moment, and release the energy & thoughts which no longer serve our highest good. 

This class is suitable for all levels. 

Gentle Yoga 

Gentle yoga was created to be accessible to all types of students, and to support their mental, physical, and spiritual needs. Gentle yoga seeks to provide therapeutic modifications to common yoga poses. This form of yoga helps increase mobility and flexibility in a slower and well rounded approach.

A big benefit is that it’s accessible to people who can’t do a practice that requires a lot of flexibility and strength.

Yoga for Grief 
Yin Yoga

We experience grief after life changing events such as the death or loss of loved one, a divorce or breakup, loss of a job or being diagnosed with a chronic illness. Yoga is one coping tool we can use during our grief. Along with loss come fear of the future and the constant replaying of painful memories both which can lead to anxiety & depression.

 One of the key focuses of yoga is being present – connecting with our breath, our bodies and our emotions exactly how they are in the present moment. Learning to be “in your body” during your grief instead of letting your thoughts escape to the past or the future is a key part of the healing process.

Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility while invigorating the energy centers of the body (nadis) to release blockages and increase your energy flow.  

We hold yin poses from anywhere from one minute to five which helps to fortify, strengthen, & lubricate your connective tissue including your fascia, tendons & ligaments.  We target the hips, pelvis and the spine.  

In yin yoga, it's not how it looks but how it feels in your body.  For many students yin yoga is a gateway to developing and deepening a meditation practice, as it allows them to practice being still in mind & body. 

This class is suitable for all levels.
