Restorative

Restorative yoga can be viewed as “active relaxation.” The student assumes the basic shapes of various yoga poses, modified to be totally supported with props (blocks, blankets, bolsters, straps). The result is a deep sense of relaxation, the antidote to chronic stress and its damaging effects.

Gentle

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga enhances the practice of meditation and mindfulness.
