Why Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice that is still practiced today for good reason. Yoga offers a variety of health benefits, including strengthening the body, increasing flexibility, improving posture, decreasing stress and tension, aiding metabolism, improving respiration, and increasing energy levels. When instructed properly, yoga is a safe, low-impact way to accomplish each of these benefits, and can be adapted to fit your needs.

Private Yoga Session:

Restorative yoga is a gentle form of yoga that focuses on deep relaxation of the body. It is primarily a series of seated and floor poses, held for a long duration with the use of props for comfort. Restorative yoga also incorporates pranayama (breathing exercises) to help you learn how to calm your mind and prepare for meditation. Restorative yoga is an excellent choice for anyone wishing to address flexibility and ease of both body and mind.

Vinyasa yoga (see below) is also available as a private session, or combined with restorative yoga, depending on your needs. Private sessions are tailored to each client.

Vinyasa Yoga Group Class:

Vinyasa yoga is the most common form of Western yoga that synchronizes breath and movement, and flows from one movement to the next. Vinyasa classes incorporate pranayama (breathing exercises) to help you learn how to calm your mind and prepare for meditation. In vinyasa classes you can expect to be challenged physically, with a variety of standing and seated poses, designed specifically for your needs and comfort level.
