Gentle & Restore
Align. Stabilize. Stretch. Nourish.
This class combines equal halves of Gentle and Restorative Yoga. In the first half of the class, you will be guided through a gentle floor and standing asana. It will reconnect you to your body and allow for the fatigue and stress to start falling away. For the second half of the class, Jen will guide you through a series of Restorative Yoga postures. Props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks will be used to support your practice. Leave this class feeling relaxed, with new space for healing and inspiration.
Each Monday at 10am with Jen Yockey
Come to a Kundalini-inspired class uniquely designed to move the body but more-so, shift the consciousness and release pent up blockages of the psyche.
This class is on hiatus until the Fall. Make sure to check the schedule as Cassidy will be teaching workshops for kids & adults.
Connect. Open. Stretch. Challenge.
Challenging in a different way, Yin Yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness.
Class is set to soft music and guided instruction to cultivate stillness both in the mind and the body. Yin yoga helps students gain greater flexibility and mobility, as well as a new sense of mental calm and balance that continues off the mat.
Yin is a great way to balance the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga. Yin is appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).

Slide in to the weekend...GENTLY.
The slower pace of this Gentle flow class allows time to adjust each posture to best suit your body. This extremely accessible class is an ideal choice for anyone looking to develop a practice of conscious, mindful movement with some support. Moving from floor stretches to a gentle flow (without DFD), you will be guided to connect, slowly and gently, with your body and breath.
Each Saturday at 9:30am with Jen Yockey
We gather to explore a Buddhist-inspired approach to recovery from addiction of all kinds. We are peer-led and do not follow any one leader or teacher, but trust in the wisdom of the Buddha (the potential for our own awakening), the Dharma (the truth, or the teachings), and the Sangha (our community of wise friends on this path).
This is a program of empowerment and doesn’t ask us to believe in anything other than our own potential to change and heal. We have found a guide for our recovery in the Buddhist teachings of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, and we invite you to investigate these practices and principles as tools for your own path of liberation from the suffering of addiction.
We understand that this is not the only path to recovery and many may choose to combine these practices with other recovery programs.
All are welcome.
Each Wednesday at 12pm.

STRETCH for Men
This is a 60 minute experience that will not only relax but rejuvenate.
People often describe that they feel like they are being submerged in sound, like the sound waves created by the Tibetan singing bowls are a visceral thing and they are washed in waves of water. They use words like “cleansed” and “cleared” to describe their experience.
One Tibetan Bowl Practitioner said "I like to joke that there’s mindful meditation and mind-emptying meditation; Sound Bath is the latter. You see, your brain is like a human computer. You have all these tabs open and, over time, your system will remind you that it’s time to reboot. When you finally allow your system to re-calibrate, what happens? It comes back faster, fresher and clearer."
Bring your yoga mat, pillow and blanket or you are welcome to use our props.
*This is a donation based class.
