Chair Yoga
‘Sit Your Way to Better Health’. Chair yoga’s therapeutic adaptive exercises work your body from head to toe. The simple and easy movements are great for people in any condition, to do anytime and anywhere. Chair Yoga promotes well being through breathing correctly and stretching in ways that will open up your body on the path to peace. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Chair Yoga poses can help seniors and people with chronic pain improve their quality of life, lower their blood pressure, improve their sleep patterns and manage depression.” We provide chairs, yoga straps, and yoga blocks. Special Pricing: 5 classes for $40

Chair Yoga is a great class for elderly, injury recovery, prenatal and postnatal students, and anyone looking for a low impact way to stretch and strengthen.


Yin
A quiet yoga practice suitable for students of all levels of experience. Practitioners are offered an opportunity to surrender, slow down and come back to balance. Many of the poses are seated, supine or prone and are held with muscles relaxed for several minutes. The Yin parts of our body are the parts that lie closest to our core, specifically the bones and connective tissue. Muscles prefer movement and repetition and are considered the Yang parts. Remaining muscularly passive for periods of time gently stretches dense connective tissue of the lower back, hips and spine, which may otherwise become stiff and less mobile as we age. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go. The Yin practice includes powerful mental and emotional benefits as its practitioner becomes quiet, still and mindful of the present.


Gentle Flow
Join us for a rejuvenating head-to-toe stretch and mindful strengthening practice. Experience balance and harmony through a slow and mindful flow designed to release tension, reduce stress, and promote relaxation. Emphasis on self-awareness, breath, and honoring the body. This class is appropriate for beginners and students with limitations, as well as experienced practitioners who enjoy a mindful and slower-paced practice. Gentle Flow is a NON-HEATED practice.


Kaiut Yoga
Kaiut Yoga is about maintaining or returning the body to optimal structure and functionality. It works from the joints to help ease chronic pain & injuries, general aches & stiffness, and work for the inflexible, hyper flexible and the aging body. Kaiut Yoga is about freedom of movement, physical system and energy flow. It’s about keeping us as healthy, mobile and pain free as possible for as long as possible.


Pilates
Pilates is a method of movement that encourages a stronger body, improved flexibility, posture, core strength, balance and focus. Breath work is involved with every movement. It's challenging and fun! Every class will be different. It is for everyone! There are always options for modifications. Be patient as the learning never ends. Laughing is always a sign of strength!


Slow Flow
