The yoga sessions will be a balanced combination of sustained poses, as well as poses flowing in a mindful progression from one to another (Hatha Flow). Mindfulness and focus on breath are an integral part of the class. Attention is always given to basic alignment and therapeutic principals.

• Modifications are offered to help individuals understand and work with their own unique limitations.

• Classes are energetically balanced, incorporating a good physical work-out as well as calming poses and deep relaxation.

Each morning session will begin with centering and pranayama followed by a spirited physical practice to energize the mind and body for the day ahead. The afternoon practice will explore the asanas in greater depth and detail. Each session concludes with a deep relaxation and guided meditation, working to calm, restore and heal body, mind and spirit.
