  • Chair Yoga

    Chair Yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available. Students perform postures and breathing exercises with the aid of a chair. Students can experience the many benefits of yoga without having to get up or down from the floor. Benefits include increased balance, strength, flexibility, range of motion, and stress reduction.



  • Gentle Yoga

    Gentle yoga classes are a great place to take it slower, and still experience all the benefits of yoga. Classes focus on releasing tension, connecting with the breath and helping students gain strength and flexibility. Gentle yoga uses classical hatha postures with slight variations to accommodate all levels of yoga students. 

    Yoga Basics – Our Yoga Basics classes introduce fundamental poses, sequence, terminology, and concepts. These classes are designed for those who have never practiced yoga, or those who have an intermittent practice and need a refresher.

    With a soft approach Level 1 Gentle focuses on stress reduction, breathwork, stretching, strengthening, and balance. L1 Gentle yoga incorporates both standing and prone positions, requiring students to have the ability to get up from and down to the floor unassisted.

  • Vinyasa Yoga

    Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement." Vinyasa classes guide students through a series of poses that coordinate breath with postures, linked with sequences of sun salutations. Vinyasa movements are smooth and flowing, which explains why it is also referred to as "flow."
