Coming soon: Yoga. An open community class with a suggested donation of $12 per class. A perfect fit for those new to yoga, those with some experience and those who have a regular practice but would like to take the time to explore a slower-paced class. Take advantage of a relaxed environment to focus on the fundamentals and develop a strong foundation for an educated practice. We will cover basic breathing techniques, basic yoga postures and basic mediation techniques. The class will bring together two traditions that were once one; the Indian practice of body and breath and the Tibetan practice of intention and focus. Essentially yoga is a path towards ultimate lasting happiness. Drop-ins to individual classes are welcome.
