Chair Yoga with Mary
Join us for an introduction to basic yoga poses and breathing techniques using a chair as a prop. Using a chair can help you to find more strength, stability and ease in your practice. This class will begin in the chair with centering and gentle stretching. Next we will practice standing poses using the chair for balance and support and then transition to the mat for some strengthening poses and savasana (deep relaxation). This class is suitable for beginners and anyone who would like to deepen their yoga experience in a supportive and engaging way.
Yoga Flow with Vanessa
The main purpose of this class is to go deeper within through “feel.” What a world to explore, the inner spaces our bodies and ourselves. Our breath is the glue that brings everything together to a one-pointed focus of feeling as we experience our bodies through asanas (yoga postures).
This class uses flow, still points, and movement to stretch, strengthen, balance and release through your body. The emphasis is on the exploration and enjoyment of your own individual yoga practice as you feel into your own boundaries while also challenging yourself.
As we focus on our own experience, we naturally find a deeper quiet and centeredness. We end with meditation.

Yoga Rise with alternating teachers
As our lives are in a constant state of change, so is our 8:00 am Saturday morning Yoga Rise class, giving us the opportunity to let go of any expectations and free the mind at the start of the day. Class begins with gentle yet deep, gradual stretching preparing the physical body for traditional yoga asanas (postures) and ends with a series of restorative asanas to release any additional holding in the body and mind. Class concludes with a resting period of meditation and is followed by reaffirmation of the importance of our daily practice in our personal circumstance. All Welcome.
