Linda Black
"Extraordinary results come from taking ordinary steps every day in the right direction - baby steps move mountains."

This class is a combination of yoga asana (postures), breathing techniques, and energy play that will help you be “In Tune”. Linda refers to the body is an instrument. And like an out-of-tune piano, can become unstable, lose harmony, and feel tense. This shows up in our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When tuned, the soul feels connected to the action of the body and mind…you feel balanced, toned, strong, and flexible. This mixed-level Hatha Yoga class combines Pranayama, Chakra balancing, and heart-opening yoga sequences in a way that helps the practitioner “Tune In”. You will come away feeling more vibrant, alive, and ready to take on the day! Designed for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Sweating optional.
 
 

Gentle & Restorative Yoga

Gentle Chair Yoga
A gentle and invigorating mindful practice of breathing, body awareness, muscular engagement, and movement all from a chair. We work through tension seeds in the body, especially our joints, and focus on strengthening the core.  This is a great class for those who have sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, and inactivity.

Restorative Yoga Therapy
This Yoga Fusion Flow Class is designed to oxygenate your muscles, calm your nervous system and mind, reset conditioned emotional and physical responses to stress through yoga postures, breathwork, and mindfulness using bolsters and blocks for support. Meditation and Nidra are an integral part of this class to encourage mind-body connections and recalibrate fight or flight response. In this Gentle Lifted Flow class, we will flow through gentle postures to encourage core strength, hydrate muscles, energize, increase flexibility and nourish the mind and body. All poses are modified to meet your level and individual needs. We love to work on our Sun Salutations and mind-body breath synchronicity. This is a class that is all about the basics! 

Early Bird Basic Yoga
This is a spirited yoga class on all levels designed to strengthen the core, learn fundamentals of alignment, and integrate mind, body, and breath. This class focuses on the “anyone can do yoga” principle. Suitable for all ages and stages.
