Arrive for yoga class with a mostly empty belly whenever possible. Many of the poses aim to increase digestive abilities and decrease tension in the belly and this is most efficiently done when we have consumed a light meal at least an hour before practice. Comfortable clothes are the best! Set up your virtual space ahead of time so you feel ready + unrushed when you log in to Zoom. It doesn't need to be perfect. Come as you are.
Gentle Our most gentle class of the week. This class is for everyone desiring an easeful way to welcome the week. We’ll keep it low to the ground for most of our time on the mat; lots of time to practice breathing well and moving with great care for our own bodies, creating a sense of ease while exploring the immense benefits of soft, mindful yoga sequences and delicious stretching. We’ll offer gratitude for what is, and cultivate conditions where vitality and restoration can organically take root.
Evening Flow Welcome Wednesday evening in with this special time to connect with yoga friends new and old. We'll talk + listen for 10 minutes (dharma) to inspire, deepen curiosity + reflect with ourselves + each other. Our time in flow will be offered in an adaptable way: most commonly we will move easily through traditional Sun Salutations, and end on our backs in restorative pose + savasana. Please join us for this wonderful mid week tonifying delight. Unwind Let go of the week, tune back in to the body as a guide, a gift, a blessing. Here, we’ll breathe deeply and well, moving into deep stretches + warming asana, spending lots of time on self massage by way of tennis balls, foam rollers. We'll often wiggle and shake~ exploring movement in both traditional and non-traditional ways~ all aimed to bring balance and a sense of well being as we enter the time of weekend-ing… bring whatever self massage tools you have: don't worry about the rest!
All Levels Sunday Practice This 'All Levels' class means EVERYONE is welcome, all levels will be accommodated.

Come with your heart and mind open to celebrate all the ways yoga brings heart, warmth, texture and soul to our community.
