Guided Meditation– Quiet the mind to connect to your inner peace. Meditation increases energy, builds self-awareness,
promotes heart health, strengthens the immune system, sharpens focus and concentration, and reduces stress and feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. No experience needed. Donation only.
Latin & African Dance– Come have FUN! Enjoy yourself, let go, and get a great workout to rhythms that will make you
move! West African dance and Latin styles including Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue. No dance experience required. Casual and welcoming atmosphere so you connect to the joy of dance.
Mindfulness for Spiritual Awakening– Reconnect to your spirit as you are guided through easy, mindful movement
paying special attention to both the physical body as well as thoughts and emotions. Gentle movement and breathing exercises will deepen your awareness within the body while connecting you to your inner source of power.
Unwind & Restore- Gentle Yoga- Gentle movement and restorative postures are used to release tension on a
physical, mental, and emotional level while establishing a mindful awareness and inviting a sense of relaxation and ease.
Vinyasa Flow- This practice focuses on syncing the breath with a continuous flow of movement. Vinyasa is a strong practice that typically includes sun salutations, standing poses, standing balance, stretches, and basic inversions that benefit the mind and body by building heat, endurance, flexibility, strength, focus, and body awareness. Beginner and Intermediate level class.
Yoga Nidra- Benefit from rest and restoration in this extremely healing practice. This class consists of breathing exercises (pranayama) and guided meditation to put you in the deepest possible state of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. Benefits include the release of muscular, emotional and mental tension.
Let it Go- Yoga Tools for Stress Relief- Stress wreaks havoc on our bodies, our mental wellbeing, and our
relationships. It is nearly impossible to avoid stress, but we can change our responses to stress as we learn to recognize triggers and practice self-care. Learn Yoga tools and techniques to help deal with stress factors in your life.
Healing Yoga- A Journey of Self-Discovery through the Chakras– In Yogic tradition, the human body has
seven energy centers called chakras. When these energy centers are healthy and open, so are we – physically, emotionally, and in our relationships. But when they are blocked through stress, injuries, illnesses or disconnection from others, we are blocked from being our best selves. Learn 1) powerful Yoga poses that will clear blockages and open your chakras and 2) meditation and breathing exercises to foster each chakra’s properties, and 3) how to journal/reflect to help with the activation of each chakra and clearing process.
