Beginner Yoga (Stephanie)

Yoga for Everyone
Chair Yoga (Stephanie)
Improve your balance, strength, flexibility, and mobility through standing and seated yoga poses. Breath work and meditation are also incorporated to help balance the body and mind. Chairs and props are provided to keep everyone safe and supported—no need to bring a yoga mat
Mindful Movement (Marnie)
There will be a focus on awareness and ease instead of power and pace. Mindful movement is a blending of the science of kinesiology with the grace and wisdom of yoga. These practices will incorporate breath-work, somatics, and biomechanically deconstructed yoga asana performed awareness to develop presence of mind, steady the nervous system, relax the tissues and align the structure with the self. Modifications will be offered and the supports are encouraged. My personal mantra is that less is more. This is ultimately your practice and I would love to help you discover the benefits that this moving meditation can bring to you no matter what level, experience, age, or ability you bring to your mat.
