If you are curious about yoga but hesitate to try it, this may be your class. Modifications are given with most postures so a person can choose what feels best for his or her body. Warming up the joints with soft, easy stretching and then exploring the slow flow of movement will immediately leave you feeling relaxed, yet energized.
Conscious awareness of the breath and the “thinking” mind are integral to every class. Participants are guided to stay focused during movement and stillness.
Each session includes intentional breathing and short meditations.
