In this class, we focus on breathing, alignment of your body and observation of how your mind and body work together and connect. We do not stay in a pose for a long period of time, and practice exploring your own physical edges. The benefits are mainly physical, as the poses relieve stress and tension in your body and increase strength and flexibility.
All Levels Yoga
In this class, we explore our practice as we hold postures for a longer period of time. We comfortably encourage our body to do as much as it can while at the same time being aware of our limitations. We will drop in a little deeper and explore self awareness, learning to listen to our bodies and not to our inner voices or external distractions.
We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely.
During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood, the increase of the "good cholesterol" levels, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscel tension, insomnia, and generalized fatigue.

At the end of practice we do a relaxation pose combined with guided imagery that helps calm the mind, therefore aiding in a better nights rest.
