Beginner friendly, all are welcome! This class introduces the fundamentals of yoga with an intelligently designed sequence of poses that are accessible to new students and allows the more experienced practitioner a chance to explore and master the intricacies of each posture.

This is a restorative class using props and bolsters to allow deep relaxation in each pose. Restorative poses may include forward folds, gentle twists, and gentle back bends. Each pose is held for about 5 to 7 minutes each leading students to a recuperative experience through passive stretching. This class allows you to let go, relax, and unwind restoring and refreshing the body and mind. Great for all levels!
