Gentle yoga classes are wonderful for beginners, seniors, pregnant women, and those healing from injuries. This class offers support systems by using two blankets and two blocks to help modify and support your body during each pose. This slower paced class will help you learn the yoga positions and help you understand how your body responds.
Basic Yoga classes are great for beginners as well as seasoned yoga practitioners. This class is designed to create more strengthening, cardio, and deeper stretching than a gentle yoga class. This class you'll find the positions and the cardio routines last longer in order to tone the body.
Power yoga classes are for those wanting more challenging positions and transitions. This faster paced class welcomes beginners and seasoned yoga practitioners seeking more cardio and strengthening than a basic yoga class. Inversions (hand stand, shoulder stand, etc.) are offered during this class to heal the body and calm the mind.
Zen yoga classes are for everyone. The classes are designed to help unwind and balance the body and mind at the end of the day. The positions are relaxing and restorative for a more meditative state. You'll find this class offers more time for deeper stretches. We conclude the class with an optional10 minute meditation.
