Yoga

Yoga is an ancient practice based on philosophy, mindfulness, and asana work. Asanas or poses can also be translated as “comfortable seat,” meaning that as we practice different poses they become more comfortable for our body and give us more ways to move with ease. Class will have modifications and emphasize an all-level practice and will include breath work and final relaxation. Come join!
