This class starts with breath work and a slow flow/Yang practice to gently warm the physical body and foster the mind/body connection. Then it moves towards deeper opening by targeting connective tissue with Yin Yoga poses – seated or lying down poses that are held in stillness for a longer duration, at the practitioner's appropriate depth. Class ends with a long savasana. A perfect blend for those looking to balance movement with deep stretch and relaxation.

December 3: exploring spaciousness & yoga nidra with eleanor
Eleanor returns to offer a beautiful, quieting Yogic experience of inner spaciousness. Using the tools of slow, deep movement combined with mindful breathing, we’ll explore our sense of spaciousness in our bodies, noticing any places that feel constricted or hardened. Through intention and breath, we will invite softness to enter. The class will end with the practice of Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation experienced while relaxing and resting, which supports the found spaciousness. All are welcome, including beginners to Yoga.
December 10: Yin / Yang Fusion with Cindy
This class will incorporate both Yin and Yang styles of yoga. We’ll start with delicious Yin openers for early morning tightness, then transition to more active/Yang postures, and close with a Yin posture followed by savasana. Yin postures penetrate deep into connective tissue to increase one’s natural range of movement, joint mobility, and flexibility. Yang postures are traditional Hatha yoga postures targeted at muscular strength, stamina, and flexibility. Come enjoy a class that balances movement with deep stretch and relaxation. All are welcome.
december 17: Holiday tension tamer with sarah
Our final community class of 2017 will provide an oasis of calm and quiet during the busy holiday season. We’ll start with soothing breath work, then move into a series of gentle neck and shoulder openers, and hip and lower back balancers. Class will end with a luxurious 20 minutes of deep relaxation (savasana). Dress warmly and wear socks. Open to all, including beginners to Yoga.
