GROUNDED CLASSES - on the mat, balance board, or low to the ground

 Yin on the Mat

In the stillness healing takes place.  A Yin practice emphasizes the connective tissue of the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine.  It draws your awareness away from the muscles and deeper into the bones.  Find stillness and focus in this gentle mat practice as the body creates space, holding postures from 3-5 minutes.  Relax, let go, breathe.

This class welcomes everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

Aerial Grounded & Healing

To slow down the pace, hammocks are suspended closer to the ground level.  This is an opportunity to stretch, float upside down, relax, and rehydrate the spine and the mind.  Class features slower longer posture holds to gently develop flexibility and length of the joints and connective tissue.

This class welcomes everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.
