Relax + Restore – Restorative Yoga
This monthly class celebrates the art of deep relaxation. Through supported poses, restorative yoga helps to sooth the nervous system and alleviate chronic tension.

Yoga Rope Wall
The rope wall is an invaluable tool to the yoga student. They work by using gravity as a natural form of resistance causing the body to open much further than in regular yoga practice. In this class we will use the rope wall to help build greater body awareness and gain understanding of our unique postural patterns. Utilizing the rope wall will also develop strength and stability, while encouraging safe expansion of the yoga postures. This class is not suitable for beginners. LEARN MORE
