Modifications are offered for all postures and suited for all fitness and flexibility levels (or lack of!). Classes are taught in a room at a comfortable temperature of 76-78 degrees.
I teach yoga as a journey with an emphasis on energy awareness, complete self acceptance, and balancing challenge with ease, integrating the body, mind, and spirit into a state of harmony, peace, and comfort. Gentle assists, stretches, and massage are offered throughout the class.
Wear comfortable clothing, bring bottled water, an exercise or yoga mat, and a large towel or throw blanket to cover with during relaxation (optional). Avoid heavy meals before class (have a light healthy snack one to two hours before class) and drink plenty of water for proper hydration. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to settle into class on your mats. Doors are locked during class to avoid interruptions, be on time!
