Hatha Yoga encourages proper alignment of the body and is excellent for increasing flexibility, developing strength, improving body awareness, building concentration and calming the mind.

YIN YOGA

Yin postures are passive, done with relaxed muscles and held for several minutes with deep breathing. This allows the body to release tensions and tightness, to enhance energy, cultivate an inward focus and surrender.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Relearning the art of relaxation while developing the skills and abilities to self-soothe.   In Restorative postures  we use props such as bolsters, blankets, belts, blocks, and chairs  to support and enhance our healing capacity.   Most importantly it helps regulate the stress response and re-balance the nervous system.   The class is ideal for those going through stressful times, suffering from chronic pain, illness, cancer, injury or major life changes.
