Class Description

Breathe to Move

Connecting Mind, Body & Spirit through movement & breath, a gentle flow with emphasis on pranayama.  The breath is a powerful tool for training mindfulness, engaging the muscles & both gathering & releasing energy.  All classes begin and end with attention to this detail, just as all movement depends on it.  Breathe to Move is gentle to protect the joints, slow to strengthen muscle groups, deep to encourage blood flow for healing, and breath-led to facilitate a mindful practice.

Heart of Yoga 

The purpose of yoga is to unify the body, breath and mind.  This class will meet each person’s concerns and interests using asanas (poses and counter-poses) linked to the rhythm of the breath (pranayama).  The goal for this class is to deepen our self awareness and to bring harmony and order in our bodies and minds.  If anyone can breathe they can practice yoga.  Be inspired to work toward your personal practice; a practice that will help give you inner awareness and clarity to their life.
