Yoga is an ancient Indian practice uniting the physical body, the mind and your spiritual being. It can take you to heights and depths you’ve never known, drawing you inside to find your natural beauty, love and purpose. One of the nicest things about practicing yoga is that you take it at your own pace and comfort. There is no judgement on anyone’s level. You will always be surrounded by other loving, kind individuals who are there to be in the moment on their own mat. Our Tribe of teachers each bring their own unique style to class which will help you to find something new and wonderful each time you practice. They guide you at your own personal level with easy to understand directions that will help you achieve and develop each posture. Because of our individual approach we welcome all ages and levels of experience at each class. Our Beginners Class is also suitable for those returning to exercise after injury or anyone wanting to add yoga to their rehabilitation program. It is important that you always alert your teacher to any injuries or concerns you have before practice so they can guide you appropriately.
Basic class with simple instruction and gentle guidance. Great also for rehabilitation after injury.
