New! Yoga for Alignment and Balance

Friday at 10:15am starting September 6

Led by Deanna Burkett, RYT200, this class emphasizes alignment and somatic awareness as a way to understand the body and bring balance to the system. Flowing sequences and sun salutations typical of a Vinyasa practice are not part of the class format, however, transitions between postures are intentionally guided. The class combines standing, seated, kneeling, supine, and prone positions with modifications gladly offered. Yogi's will experience individual challenges on the mat and find success in the process. All levels welcome, no experience is necessary.
