Gentle/Open Level 1 Yoga
This class is appropriate for all levels of experience – from beginner to experienced. The focus of this class is on the connection between poses (asanas) and using/transferring your own body weight in flow sequences highlighting the classic asanas and sun salutations. Come dressed to be comfortable, to move, and to sweat. Please bring a yoga mat and towel if possible – but we have a select few community mats if needed! Please feel free to pass the word on to friends and family! These classes are open to the community at large and previous experience is not needed.

Individual and/or Adapted Yoga Session
Our individual yoga sessions are tailored specifically for each student and activities may vary. All sessions begin with centering and breathing exercises, include an integrated series of yoga poses (asanas), and end with relaxation. Specialized breathing exercises and relaxation techniques are tailored for each student to improve concentration. Yoga is practiced in a non-competitive manner with emphasis on optimal effort by the student.
Group Adapted Yoga Classes
These classes are designed to strengthen and stretch the entire musculoskeletal system, balance the nervous system, increase breathing efficiency, improve body awareness, improve communication skills, increase each student’s ability to self regulate, and provide a fun and engaging experience! Students will engage in a safe, gentle yoga practice through an integrated sequence of yoga poses (asanas) and breathing techniques. Students are encouraged to bring a yoga mat and dress in comfortable clothing, although a limited number of community yoga mats are available for use. Companions are welcome to attend with individuals with special needs.
