Baby & Me Yoga is inclusive yoga where new parents can join together, in an open space, welcoming both parents and baby, as they edge back into their practice. Unlike traditional yoga that moves through a continuous flow, Baby & Me yoga is adaptive, and works with the moments we are in, day by day, minute by minute, just as parenting reality is. This includes and open, and free space to stop during the practice to feed, changes, and care for your child, without feeling awkward, as you know, everyone in the room is also a parent, and this space is meant for you and baby to practice in your comfort. The class adapts to the moment and often that means, babies will help lead the direction of the class at times.

Classes center around pelvic floor, and diastasis recovery, through exercises and breath, and engaging in poses to help relieve the aches of postpartum recovery, as well as related strains of day-to-day parenting.  Each lesson includes baby massage to assist in sleep and digestion for baby, and ends in meditative rest, helping with sleep and relaxation in the days that follow as well.

Head holders to crawlers, each stage of development happens so quickly, and the classes are adaptive with variations and modifications for each week and leap along the way. Please do seek your doctor’s clearance before starting any new physical program, for yourself, baby, and your fellow yogini’s.

This form of Yin Yoga is directed towards students who need a very gentle practice due to injury, stress or illness or who are simply looking for a softer and more supportive practice. It involves the use of props to allow the body to feel totally supported so that the body can relax and release. Poses are still held 3 to 5 minutes and up to 10 minutes. But students are always encouraged to listen carefully to their body and modify where necessary. Classes end with a longer Savasana and may include Yoga Nidra or guided relaxation. All levels/ages are welcome.

This class will allow you to slow down and have a good night’s sleep… Alleviate stress on the nervous system – while grounding through gentle movement, breath work and comforting poses… The instructor will also incorporate basalt, hot stones to be self-administered to allow even deeper relaxation.

Reduce and resolve pain and tension in the body using the SomaYoga Methodology.  The goal is to create more mobility, stability and strength through conscious movement using the least   possible effort with the most possible awareness.  We will be retraining the brain to combat and eliminate Sensory Motor Amnesia.

Same as Gentle Hatha mixed in with some fun.

Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness ~ sleep with trace awareness also known as yogic sleep.  It occurs in the space between waking & dreaming consciousness.

This is a simple but powerful meditative/relaxation practice that offers benefits such as helping reduce stress and cortisol levels, improves sleep & concentration, can help reduce blood pressure and symptoms of physical pain as well as planting intentions for self healing & personal growth.

To practice students are invited to make themselves as comfortable as possible with props and blankets in Savasana (corpse pose) or in an effortless supported position. They close their eyes, become still and focus on the voice of the guiding teacher. Students are then guided through 8 steps/techniques including relaxation, sankalpha/resolve, body energy awareness & yogic sleep.    Aside from gentle movements to shift into a comfortable reclined position there is no other movement required in this practice.  Its accessible to everyone and there is no previous yoga or movement experience necessary. Leave feeling rested, refreshed and revitalized.

 

Enjoy the same wonderful characteristics of our regular yin infused with a little something special every week; breath work, guided meditation, sound healing with gongs or chimes, aromatherapy with doTERRA oils, Yoga Nidra and a long wonderful restful Savasana!

This class is perfect for those who would like to enjoy the benefits of yoga but are unable due in part, to the aging process or physical challenge, to sit for long periods on the floor or to easily go from a seated to standing position. The class will provide all of the benefits of a gentle Hatha class with the added support of a chair. Participants will do seated yoga postures to stretch, strengthen and balance, learn breathing techniques to expand their lungs, bring them focus and practice mindfulness to achieve a calm and relaxed sense of being.
