Level 1/Beginners with Lee

The movements come from the Viniyoga tradition and are adapted to students' needs. It's a great way to unwind tensions at the end of the day and enter into the evening with awareness.


Strengthen & Flow with Erin

Inquiry-based & exploratory, this all-levels class begins with a dynamic warm up. Students are invited to coordinate their breath with movement during a series of adapted sun salutations. Once the body is warm, we move into a sequence of traditional & therapeutic postures. Flowing from standing to seated & finally down to the ground, the progression makes the time fly by and the body feel alive & revitalized. We use blankets, straps & blocks to support the body and calm the mind.
