Alignment Awareness Yoga classes focus on mindful alignment, movement and breath. We use yoga postures to both stretch and strengthen the body. Classes start with mindful movement and progress to more heat building and strengthening postures. Yoga class are open to everybody at all levels. Variations are provided to accommodate differences in our bodies and stages of life.
Yin/Restorative Yoga classes are slower, more relaxing, and focus on gentle stretching & movement. Gentle stretches are held for longer periods of time so the muscles can let go and receive a deep stretch. During this slowed down time, the nervous system gets a chance to rest and restore the body back to health leading to decreased stress, better sleep, and increased overall wellness.
