Slow + Stretchy Class Styles
A relaxed pace class designed to enhance mobility, decrease pain, and refresh the mind, body and spirit. Slow, fluid movements coordinated with the breath release tension and open the flow of healing energy within the body and the soul. Modifications are offered to facilitate ease of practice for every body. This class is perfect for those times when we may feel weak, fatigued or stressed from daily activities.
Restorative yoga is a calming and grounding practice that is a wonderful complement to cardio-based exercise or a vigorous vinyasa practice. Restorative practice invites you to let go, allowing gravity and the breath to bring you into a deep space of inner reflection and openness. Expect to melt away your stress in this one! This class is available for all levels.
After each class, you will walk out of the door with enlightened lungs, a spacious body, and a clearer mental state, which is amazingly light, content and full.
Are you stressed out, overworked, overtired, run-down or just in need of some quiet rejuvenation time?

Yin + Refresh

This class can provide you with a practice that starts with deep, introspective, and quiet yoga that evolves into an energizing and uplifting yoga that sets you on your way for the rest of your day. Perfect for all levels.
