New! Ashtanga Yoga 4 week series

 Starting Saturday April 10, 11:00am-12:15pm, in-studio and online

Join Elise Gallagher for this introduction to Ashtanga Yoga. Ashtanga Yoga is often described as an energetic practice that synchronizes breath with movement. Unlike Vinyasa which can be varied, traditional ashtanga follows a precise sequence of poses that are physically challenging. The series starts Saturday April 10 at 11:00am and class is scheduled for 75 minutes.

New! Movement + Yin Yoga

 Starting Tuesday May 25, 7:00-8:00pm, in-studio only

Join Laura Conners for evening practice of movement warm-ups followed by a sequence of longer-held Yin poses. Movement practice is designed to work with the muscles of the body while Yin Yoga allows us to work the deeper tissues of our ligaments, joints, fascia networks, and our bones. Come awaken your body on the mat. Leave class feeling good, lighter, invigorated
