This class is ideal for anyone wanting a slower-paced class, as well as for those recovering from illness or injury. This class will focus on increasing range of motion, safely moving the spine in all of its directions, improving balance / core strength, de-stressing and more. Poses are modified and supported to make this class suitable for anyone regardless of age, body type or yoga experience.

Kundalini Yoga for Beginners
Kundalini Yoga incorporates the physical aspects of yoga, along with the mind and spirit.
Each class consist of five elements to awaken the energy of consciousness.
1. Centering: Tuning into our higher selves.
2. Kriya: A specific set of exercises that generate energy, organize that energy and deliver you to a specific energetic state.
3. Deep relaxation: This is when your body is able to integrate the positions you have just practiced and heal itself.
4. Meditation: Contains specific, practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra and focus.
5. Closing: After loosening the muscles and raising your energy, we will project that feeling of vitality to others by closing with a blessing.
A thoughtfully planned sequence of slow, fluid movements, commonly referred to as ‘slow flow’. On a physical level, each movement will complement the next and satisfy the body’s urge to move and stretch. Mentally, these flows ask just enough of the mind to clear it of clutter and get you in the perfect head space for the day.
Restorative yoga asks so little, but gives so much. We will use props to help support our body's weight and just be. It's incredibly relaxing and opens the body in the deepest, yet gentlest of ways.

Surrender (Yin) Yoga
Surrender is a Yin based yoga practice. Yin is a slow paced, quiet and meditative
practice where you will be guided into postures or asanas on the floor. These
postures are held for a duration of time to allow your body the opportunity to
soften into the connective tissue and deep fascial networks within the
body. Props such as blocks, blankets and balls are used as needed as well as
gentle hands on adjustments to assist you in your practice. Yin can increase
space from within and improve mobility and posture.
