A combination of somatics and yin yoga.
The idea behind somatics is that slow, gentle exercises re-educate the nervous system and allow the release of tight, restricted muscles, thereby promoting healing. Yoga practices based on somatics blend this concept with appropriate yoga asanas.
This specialty class will focus on a specific part of the body through exploration of slow & deliberate movement followed by stillness (yin) to allow the body to soften into the pose for deeper healing.
Experience a combination of Yang and Yin poses in this class. The more active Yang poses in the first half of the class will focus on strength with more time dedicated to technique and alignment. The 2nd half is dedicated to the more restorative Yin style of poses; stretching and relaxing the specific muscles that were targeted in the class. All classes work on a specific theme or muscle group/function. Props are always used to support the body and modifications are encouraged. The instructor will also incorporate basalt, hot stones to be self-administered to allow even deeper relaxation. All levels welcome.
Lengthen your whole body through this breathing meditation class, moving through extended transitions, with intentional and deliberate calm.

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.
