A spirited practice that combines breath, movement, meditation and mantra to access the vibrating energy within us.

Hatha Flow

Thursdays – 5:15-6:15 PM and 6:30-7:30 PM 

Flow-based Hatha Yoga links the sustained postures practiced in a regular Hatha class into a sequence of movements that flow with the breath in a more vigorous series. The flow involves moving from one posture to another with minimal rest in between. This class is practiced in a regular temperature room but the fluent movement creates natural heat in the body. Attention is always given to basic alignment & therapeutic principles. Mindfulness; observing breath and body are an integral part of class. Classes are balanced with energy, to give you a good physical work-out, and calm, to keep you balanced.

 

Candlelit Yin

Thursdays – 7:45-8:45 PM 

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality to one's life.

Join Debbie Brooks Grimm on Thursday's at 7:45pm for Candlelit Yin. Relax, undwind and release the day's tension.

 

Therapeutic Chair Yoga

Every other Friday – 10:30-11:30 AM

All of the traditional mind/body/spirit benefits of Classical yoga, with the aid of a chair. In this mat-free class, the chair will be used as a seat, and as a prop to assist with some standing poses. However, all asanas will be modified as required to meet your individual abilities and needs. Perfect for seniors, people with mobility challenges, and/or anyone seeking to develop a yoga practice that is suitable for the office.
