Sunday Sadhana

Sadhana means practice or practitioner. In this class, the students can determine what we will practice. Have something you are curious about? Something you'd like to work on specifically? Sign up for this class, and send us an email to let us know. The teacher will then build the class around your request. Please sign up early and email us with your requests. Then come to a practice tailored just for you! Class is open to everyone... email topic not required for attendance.

pranayama

Pranayama

Pranayama, in its simplest form is the study of the breath. Though breath is always present in our practice, we don’t always pay attention to it. These classes will teach possible prop set-ups to enhance the movement of the breath, how to observe the breath, and then some techniques to control it. Through the control of the breath we can bring our attention deeper within, learn how to deeply relax, and better understand the connection between the body, the mind and the breath. If you are new to this class, please take a few minutes to view Chris' video on Common Pranayama Setups.

Coming this fall, check back!

Restorative

Restorative yoga helps provide physical and mental balance to help manage stress and anxiety. Through the use of props that allow you to hold poses longer, you gain the benefits of deep, passive stretching. These special restorative classes will include supported poses and breathing techniques that will rest your body and calm your mind. Typically offered monthly in most classes.
