Are you looking for a weekend class that builds strength, energy, and resilience? This mat-based class (Saturdays 9:15-10:30 am) is an intelligent, energizing and joyful practice aligning movement and breath – a perfect lead-in for the weekend! Together we experience yoga as a grounding physical practice for standing strong and steady in the world.

Each class features a heart-opening practice including meditation, mindful movement, balance, breath awareness, and deep relaxation. Throughout, we build strength and steadiness through movements that:

  • tone and strengthen the body

  • support balance

  • improve posture and flexibility

  • free up joints, breath and energy

  • release stuck emotions and bring more clarity to the mind

  • open the heart to engage courageously with the world around us!
