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.

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.
