activate true core strength and personal power. Also, devoted to our

life through gentle movements. Once we have begun to relax this area, we
are ready to learn how to effectively build strength without building
tension in our shoulders. No yoga experience necessary.

physioball to encourage greater balance, core strength, flexibility,

wildlife amidst the wooded trails. Learn the basic standing yoga poses
along the way.
Celebrate a new day! Learn the flowing sequence of twelve poses known as
the sun salutation or Surya Namaskar. Each pose counteracts the one before,
stretching the body in a different way and alternately expanding and
contracting the chest to regulate the breath. Offered weekday mornings.
Hips are the largest joint in the body, they are also a weight bearing
joint. Hips are closely tied into issues with the low back, knees and even
the ankles. If that weren't enough, our hips also store tension and stress
from our lives. As you know, the hips can have a mind of their own and
resist as we are trying to loosen them. This class is designed to lovingly
coax our hips to begin releasing tension. As we open our hips we will
notice an increased range of motion and a feeling of openness. You will
walk or even dance out with a new understanding and appreciation of you
hips. No yoga experience necessary.
