Stepping into middle age and beyond is a time to welcome wisdom, joy, and abundance into your life. Are you ready to ease into a gentle yoga practice that supports healing the whole self? 

The chair-to-mat class (Fridays 10-11:15 am) is great for anyone seeking safe stretches, release in the joints, and strength in the bones. We start by warming up the body seated on the chair, and then move through a carefully structured sequence of standing, balance, and mat-based postures. This gentle class also supports those recovering from surgery or illness.

Each class features a heart-opening practice including meditation, mindful movement, balance, breath awareness, and deep relaxation. You will:

  • Increase strength & balance

  • Improve posture & flexibility

  • Learn new ways to nourish body & relax the mind

  • Experience the compassion of community
