Flow yoga is a fluid style of yoga that links movement with breath for a dynamic mind-body workout. This style of yoga generates heat, builds strength and flexibility, and focuses the mind. Students practice sun salutations, standing and balancing postures, seated forward bends and twists, arm balances, backbends and inversions for a well-rounded and energizing practice. Previous yoga experience recommended.
Enjoy soothing and well-supported poses using props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, eye pillows and straps. Restorative yoga is a slow and still practice that focuses on passive poses that help to heal the effects of chronic stress on the body, mind, and spirit. Open to all levels.
Yin & Retune
This class journeys into deeper states of relaxation through a blissful combination of Yin Yoga and Tuning Fork Therapy. Tuning Fork Therapy is a healing modality using sound and vibration to heal the body and spirit. Mary uses various tuning forks, tuned to the different energy centers of your body (chakras) to bring your body back into vibrational balance. The blissful combination of Yin Yoga and Tuning Fork therapy will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Yin yoga is a slow and deep practice to stretch the connective tissues and joints of the hips, thighs and lower spinal area. Unlike the muscles, which are more yang parts of our bodies, the connective tissues need to be addressed with a quiet attitude of acceptance. Postures are mostly practiced on the floor and can be held from one to 10 minutes. Yin Yoga balances the yin and yang aspect of ourselves, encourages the flow of prana (energy), helps maintain the health of the connective tissues, and helps us develop a mindful practice.
Yin & Gentle Flow
This soothing practice combines the deep stretching of Yin yoga with gentle flowing yoga. Enjoy long holds for the connective tissues and joints and soothing, slow flows to relieve tension, relax the body, and quiet the mind. Open to all levels.
A one hour flow practice during your lunch break. Students practice sun salutations, standing and balancing postures, seated forward bends and twists, arm balances, backbends and inversions for a well-rounded mid-day practice.

Yin & Slow Flow on Thursdays is also a perfect way to begin your morning.
