Open up to the possibility of ease and release of the deeper “holding” places within you. “A little more hippy, a little more happy, it’s a slow dance for happy hips.” — Happy Hipster, Allen

Mysore Practice – Self-guided studio time. A teacher is present to answer questions and perform alignment adjustments. Students are invited to practice at their own pace. The room is open for a set amount of time and you are welcome to enter and exit as you please. Open to everyone. Note: Ashtanga and Moon Days.

Somatic Yoga – Somatic yoga is not a different style of yoga, but rather a movement therapy: a way of re-educating the way our brain senses and moves the muscles. Small, slow and gentle movements are used to re-educate the brain to allow changes in our habitual patterns, so that tight and restricted areas of the body relax and move more functionally.

Child's PoseYin – A quiet, inward practice focused on the connective tissues of the body. Each pose is held for 3-5+ minutes using props. Time allows the body to enter a state of deep relaxation and encourages increased flexibility. A class for all levels.

Gentle Yoga – This one hour midday class is wonderful for beginners. Learn to connect with your breath and your body. Brighten your day.

Chair Yoga – A chair provides students with a safe foundation from which to explore the many benefits of yoga postures, breathing and mindfulness meditation. Chair yoga helps students to develop strength and flexibility within their present range of motion and ability.

Gentle Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation – Using gentle yoga to open the body in preparation for a meditation practice, releasing tension so that we can come into a place of stillness. Followed by a guided meditation where we learn to be in the present moment and tune into our own ability to relax and work towards balance.

Kids Yoga (3-5 years & 5-9 years) – Yoga movement, stories, songs and games will be used to facilitate individual development for each child. This class will foster creativity, imagination and joyful expression. There will also be an element of breath work to help children learn to relax themselves, this will help to boost self esteem, personal development and self confidence.
