Yoga All Levels

A well-rounded practice for all levels. The teacher will always assume there are beginner/intermediate students and will teach accordingly, but will also challenge the intermediate/advanced students attending these classes.

Restorative Yoga

A vital practice for our culture of overdoing, where chronic stress, burnouts and chronic fatigue have become far too common. This guided practice will offer you the tools and the opportunity to yield the body into comfortable, supported positions as a way to influence the nervous system into relaxing deeply. All levels are welcome.

Yoga for Teachers and Trainees

This class is offered for teachers, teacher trainees, and more experienced students of yoga to help continue to develop their personal practice as well as their teaching skills. Students must be authorized to attend this class.

Yoga Kurunta (Ropes & Chairs)

Yoga Kurunta is a method of practicing asana with the help of the ropes to enable one to attain accuracy, agility, balance, opening and better alignment. The ropes are used with motion to warm up the body, and limber the shoulders, hips and hamstrings. They can offer a greater depth of movement. They assist the students with stability, sense of direction and sharper awareness of alignement. Yoga kurunta can be a preparation and gateway for deeper, challenging asana. Chairs are also frequently integrated into this class. This is an intermediate practice.
