Gentle/Beginner class If you have not taken a yoga class, have little experience with yoga or simply want to enjoy a gentle practice, this class is perfect for you. One hour class includes yogic breathing, meditation, asanas (yoga postures) and relaxation. Teachers: Sunday-Katie Grace, Wednesday-Dee

Moderately Gentle This class will help you to gain confidence, strength and flexibility in your asanas (poses) with clear step by step instructions, including modifications. Practicing mindful awareness, safe alignment and breathing helps to increase your flexibility, both physically and mentally. This class is perfect for the beginners or those with an established practice wishing to re-align and re-focus. All levels of practice are welcome. Teacher-Katie Grace

Easy Peasy This class is all about the STRETCH!!!! We will take our time with warm ups and getting into postures . . . moving from the floor, to seated postures to standing postures, returning to lots of work on the floor. We want to feel every feeling, and every movement. There will be no rushing through to get to the next posture. Slow, steady, deliberate. We will cherish our bodies and appreciate the smallest effort we make, for all movement is good. We are about building confidence and esteem, and letting go of all previous ideas of what yoga is. We will show up and do it for ourselves and no one else ... perfect for those who are tight, tired or timid, also for woman age 40 and wiser. Teacher: Kathleen Reilly

Intermediate This is an active class suitable for students who are ready to build upon asana they have already learned at the beginner level. We will explore asanas such as sun salutations, the warrior series, downward facing dog, triangle and its variations, and twists such as half moon. Balance poses such as tree and dancer will be explored in more detail. Students may be assured of one-on-one attention during the class, so that they will attain the most benefit from the postures. We will focus on balance, flexibility, building strength, and alignment. Breathwork and meditation will continue to be a part of each class. This class is an excellent "next step" for the beginner student or anyone who wants to take their practice to the next level. Teacher: Katie Grace

Slow Flow By moving in a very slow continuous movement you build strength, metabolism and flexibility. The emphasis on slowly transitioning between poses, linked with the breathe trains the mind to be present, taking your awareness deeper. A familiarity with yoga poses will make the class more beneficial to you. Teacher: Kathleen Roskos

Holy Yoga This class is suitable for all levels and embraces a spirit of quiet mediation and praise. While focusing on good alignment, we will use various yogic postures as we mediate on Scripture. Our goal will be to enter into the presence of God, as we learn to quiet our hearts and minds and worship Jesus in Spirit and truth. Intermediate Class Teacher: Dianne

Hips-Thighs & Stretching - Oh My With an emphasis on warming up, through stretching and a great deal of attention being focused on healthy joints, this class is intended to nurture your soul, focusing on self acceptance, through modifications and opening our hearts to ourselves and others. Appropriate for young adults to baby boomers, beginners or anyone looking to slow down, this class is designed with asana, breath-work, relaxation and fun. Teacher: Kathleen Reilly

Restorative is derived from the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. In this class we use props in reclined and seated poses to help with physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Through props the body is supported and encourages relaxation by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Simply put, it reduces tension at every level helping with pain, fatigue, stress, mental fog, to name a few. So whether you're dealing with life in general, illness or need to reenergize you will benefit from this class. Continuous practice can make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illnesses, aid in your optimal health and remind your whole being "oh yeah, this is why I need to do this!".Teacher: Claire

Mixed Level This class connects your breath to your movement, opening your mind, body and spirit to the flow of grace. You can expect sun salutations to warm up the large muscle groups to increase strength and flexibility. Expect to be challenged yet nurtured while discovering your unique edge. This class will teach proper alignment to keep you safe in your body while working the areas each pose is intended to work. Seeking perfection leads to suffering and disappointment, embrace your imperfections as you flow with your unique breath to express your true self. Open to all levels, modifications will be offered- Teacher: Katie Grace, Rosemary, Joan

Yin Yoga The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. Yin Yoga is a practice of long-held floor poses that gently stretches the deep connective tissues of the body and also restores energy and calms the nervous system. These tissues house the meridians, or energy pathways in the subtle body and stretching these tissues not only restores joint mobility but accesses and encourages the "chi" or life force to flow freely. Pure Bliss- Teacher: Joan

Chakra Yoga Come explore the cakras. This class will begin with a relaxing meditation allowing you to connect with yoru chakras. As you explore their locations, you'll discover their colors, sounds and emotional connections. This yoga practice will begin to begin to heelp you to clear those chakras that may have become stuck or closed. As you practice each week you'll gain a deeper understanding of the chakras. This class is suitable for all levels of practice. Teacher - Katie Grace

Vinyasa Flow A peaceful, yet vigorous, vinyasa yoga practice that focuses on flowing through basic poses, maintaining them with proper alignment, moving with the breath and finding stillness int he postures. A traditional Hatha yoga class combined with elements of Zen Buddhism. All levels welcome. Teacher-Tony

Beginners & Alignment We will be practicing yoga being aware of our postures and alignment, doing posture breakdowns and talking about the benefits of each posture. This is a great class for beginners to learn the asanas, as well as for practiced Yogis to refine their postures. We will incorporate a short flow in each class for the sake of our heart rate, flexibility and strength. Teacher-Dianne

Yoga for Veterans This class is for Veterans only. There is no experience or flexibility required. ALL body types and ages are whole-heartedly welcomed. Laughter, light-heartedness and a sense of camaraderie are strongly encouraged. Class begins with simple standing poses (that are rooted in ancient yoga practices) and with guided breath meditations that help the mind become quieter and facilitate a sense of peace and calm to the nervous system. Simple movements are done on the ground, seated and/or lying down, to help open the main gateways to the body's energy systems and help facilitate a more easeful and enjoyable daily lifestyle. While using pillows, bolsters and blankets, the students are invited to rest while being guided through a relaxing meditation.-Teacher-Joan

Relaxed Beginner Class Chill out this summer with an easy yoga class perfect for everyone, whether brand new or experienced practitioner. We'll keep the practice simple with a focus on whole body/mind relaxation, mindful breathing and safe alignment. A good moor and more relaxed body/mind are just one flow class away. Teacher-Katie Grace

Mobility Patterns
Our bodies are meant to move dynamically, meaning in all directions. This can be a challenge and especially for anyone who sits a lot or performs the same athletic movements. In anything we do repeatedly, our motion becomes limited as some muscles are over used and others are underused. Plus, our limitations in movement correlate with pain, injury and a reduction in our cognitive abilities because yes, it's all connected. Here we're going to sink into the connective tissue, open the body up, improve joint stability, strengthen and balance your movement. This is a challenge to both your brain and body because it reconnects movement patterns in the nervous systems that you haven't been using. The methods and techniques may be new to you but it's safe for the joints, allows you to learn and adapt to your abilities and it's fun (or at least Claire's idea of fun!). So whether you're a yogi, athlete or anyone realizing your movements or thoughts have become restricted, you'll improve the way your body and mind function, be stronger and less prone to injury. Teacher: Claire

Lava Flow A Vinyasa Practice This vigorous yoga flow is the dynamic synchronizing of the breath with a progressive series of postures, resulting in improved circulation and increased body strength. The Yoga asana is one of the ways we “unite” (YOGA =union or yoke) the Breath, Body and Spirit. In this class you will experience breath work (Pranayama), Asana’s (poses), Buddhist Philosophy (Hindu folklore). This class is for Beginners and Intermediate practitioners who enjoy an energetic flow class, holding poses and advancing their practice gradually and safely. Friday morning we will set the pace for your energetic weekend! Teacher: Rosemary

Yoga Basics An hour long class structured to help you learn basic yoga poses and sequences, to understand yoga traditions and philosophy and help develop a foundation for you to build your practice upon.
