Yoga


Vinyasa or Flow yoga is a form of moving meditation. This practice helps to decrease the ongoing chatter in the mind while promoting a calm, peaceful state.

All levels are welcome and modifications are shown to meet different abilities. Bring a yoga mat. *Mondays are intermediate level classes, and Wednesdays and Fridays are beginner level classes. (Must purchase punch cards at the front desk. Cards expire after six months.)

Chair Yoga


Chair Yoga is a gentle form of yoga practiced sitting in a chair or standing using the chair for support. The poses, or Asanas, are adaptations of Hatha yoga poses seated. You will learn breathing cycles of deeply inhaling and slowly exhaling as you move through the poses. The last 5-8 minutes will be guided meditation to relax and sooth the mind and body.
