If you've been struggling to figure out the logistics of kicking up, or you can kick up but then have trouble staying up, this class is for you! We'll start with kicking up at the wall, work on balancing at the wall, and then practice balancing near the wall without feet touching. This progressive class will help you face your fears, answer your questions, and demystify the mechanics of handstand so you can get up more gracefully and balance more effortlessly.

Yoga + Fascial Release

Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds your muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. When it's healthy, fascia allows your muscles to slide and glide as you move. But when your fascia gets tight and stuck, it can restrict your movement. In this class, you'll learn how to release the layers of fascia in your body using special props, techniques, and yoga poses. We will also practice mindful ways to move that are healthy and safe for your hips, knees, and low back. Everyone welcome.

Gentle Yoga for Seniors

This class helps build strength, increase flexibility, improve balance, reduce stress, and enhance equanimity for older adults who may benefit from a slower pace, a wide offering of modifications, and a recognition of age-related functional changes.

We encourage students to use props, stay balanced, rest as appropriate, explore range of motion, transition slowly, and progress at their own pace. Since falls are a major cause of disability for seniors, special attention is paid to building core strength and balance. Breath work, relaxation and meditation are included to encourage stress reduction.

This class offers seated chair poses, standing poses, and floor work. Alternatives are available for those who cannot get up and down from the floor unassisted.

Beginners welcome.
