Appropriate for all levels, restorative yoga is practiced at a slow pace, focusing on long holds, stillness, and deep breathing. Props are used such as blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps. Restorative classes are typically mellow and low-energy, making them a great complement to more active practices (as well as our busy lives) and an excellent antidote to stress. The Sunday class, taught by Kim Miller, offers her therapeutic sound therapy-certified skills!
Sundays :: 6:45 pm- 8:15 pm (75 min class)
Our Weekly Yoga classes
Yin Yoga :: Joint Regeneration
This class focuses on mobility, joint health and learning to find expansion in our myofascial system. We focus on holding yin yoga poses for a longer length of time while finding deep openings in the joints and also learning to "work" in stillness. This class is designed for all abilities and experience with yoga.
Yin Yoga + Somatics
Yin yoga focuses on 5-7 poses for the entirety of the class while working through soft tissue release and stretching our joints. Somatic awareness exercises are often woven into these yin classes while bringing awareness to our breath and becoming more conscious of the inner landscape of our neurobiology

Wednesdays :: 8:30 am - 9:30 am (60 min class)

These doorways open our hearts to a new way of loving ourselves and those in our lives. It is through love that we heal.

Wednesday Ecstatic Dance
The described effects of ecstatic dance include a feeling of connection with others, indeed of "universal relatedness", and with the dancer's own emotions; serving as a meditation, providing a way of coping with stress and restoring serenity; and serving as a spiritual practice.

What: This class teaches how to listen and feel the inner movements of a person’s body. You will connect to the basic cranial rhythms and see how they impact the body. You will study fascial intelligence, the diaphragm releases, and the cranial lifts. Each day participants will both give and receive a practice session. By the end of this class you will be able to give a full basic craniosacral session.

When: November 18th-21st
What: When a child is born there are many pressures on the skull that hold the base of the brain and the platelets of the head into fixed positions. The normal hardening of these bones locks the skull into a ‘baby position’. Without intervention this position stays with us for the rest of our lives. In this class we will be able to increase the flexibility of the cranial base and allow the brain to function within the maximum space available. The creation of space for the brain will release a whole new avenue of intelligence that was unavailable before.
