Yoga combines active postures with relaxing static postures for overall increased flexibility, strength, balance and peace of mind. Beginning with breath work to prepare the body and quiet the mind, we will move through classic yoga postures to get energy flowing throughout your body. Then we will move into quieter postures that naturally reach deeper connective tissues, and encourage ease in the body and patience in the mind. Class length – 75 minutes.

Everyone welcome novice and more experienced yogis. All you need is comfortable clothing that allows a full range of body motion.
