New Class: Friday Gentle Release & Restore

5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

This class is all about unwinding from the week. All floor work… stretch, twist, and
breathe to open the body. Release stored tension and stress, and calm the mind.
You will leave this class feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and restored in Body, Mind and Soul.

I have been practicing yoga for over 25 years. It’s the one constant in my life. Coming to my mat is like coming home! The one place I can be with myself as I am at that moment. I’ve practiced Iyengar, Vinyasa, and Bikram. In 2007 I was stressed out with a health crises and family issues. I was seeing my acupuncturist for help and he suggested I try Yin yoga for awhile, that perhaps my yoga practice was a little to Yang for what was going on in my life at the time. My first Yin class, Bliss! The meditative aspect of Yin allowed me to quiet my mind and de-stress my body and soul. The postures of Yin opened my body in ways I had never experienced before. Healing me physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Deepening my yoga practice tremendously. This is when I decided to teach the Gentle side of Yoga. To bring to others the healing benefits that I received. My practice now incorporates the softer Yang style of Gentle yoga along with my love, Yin. Adding in some Restorative for those days when I’m recovering from an illness or are emotionally depleted. We need both the Yang and Yin in our lives and our practice in order to stay balanced, strong yet flexible.
