Yoga for a Fresh Start
Mental stimulation, fatigue and stress all play a part in the state of mind and emotions. Get a fresh start to each week by setting aside this time on Sunday to practice sequences of poses designed to re-set the mind and re-charge the body.
Open to all levels, each student will learn how to work with poses in a way that fits the needs of their body while working towards improved mental health. Relevant pranayamas will be introduced. The practice of pranayama (extension & retention of the breath) has the ability to distribute energy, bring mental clarity, and alleviate stress. Get a fresh start to your week.

Balance, Stability, Flexibility and Strength
This class is designed to build strength and stability at any age!
A safe and systematic practice incorporating props that allow poses to be explored with confidence. As we age, we become more aware of the changes that naturally occur in our bodies. A systematic and intelligent yoga practice can bring increased awareness and mindfulness. This awareness brings acceptance and understanding of our bodies. Bolder is the new older- if not now when?
Immerse yourself in your practice and be challenged. Once there is a good balance between mobility, strength and flexibility in the yoga asana (postures) and a home practice is being developed, a student can move on to a class of this level. All standing poses are practiced, Shoulder stand (salamba sarvangasana), headstand (sirsasana), urdhva dhanurasana, and arm balances.
Here the teacher will work with all the stated level students together to develop a deeper understanding of Iyengar yoga practice. Students are assisted in working safely and appropriately at their current level.
What is Chair Yoga??
In this class, we explore different ways to use the chair to improve your practice of Iyengar Yoga. If flexibility is a challenge, the chair helps you to relax into the pose, allowing your muscles to soften and elongate. As you progress through your practice, use of the chair allows extended range of motion and duration of poses safely and effectively. The chair allows exploration of more difficult and advanced poses.
