Hatha Yoga is a practice meant to help create and maintain alignment and awareness of the body and mind. I always keep my classes open to every skill level and am there to help assist and guide you with the practice that YOU need. Each week brings a different series of poses to keep it fresh, and there is always a carefully curated playlist that hits that sweet spot in the soul to help you stay connected in the present moment.
Calm the mind. Relax the muscles. Release the joints.
Explore the internal art of tai chi in this class designed for students of all levels. Hundreds of years old, this fascinating practice uses the principles of yin and yang to create a dynamic exercise based in soft, relaxed movement. Nicknamed “swimming on dry land,” it is low impact and suitable for people of all ages. The many health benefits of practicing tai chi are now being recognized more in the western world as institutions, such as Harvard Medical School, have begun researching tai chi and publishing their results. Tai chi has been shown to benefit injury recovery, heart strength, circulation, breathing, balance, leg strength, structural alignment, bone density, and pain management for muscles and joints. It has also been shown to help relieve stress while improving mental acuity and psychological well-being. Each class includes standing meditation practice and an exploration of a different posture from the Cheng Man-ching Yang style form.
Vinyasa Flow With Xim
Our practice will begin with finding our breath and checking in with our bodies. I will ask if there is something specific participants need to focus on and I will try to create the flow around what our bodies tell us they need that particular day. I always begin our movement with sun salutations to warm up and get our blood flowing before moving into deeper stretches and maybe a little play with balancing poses. Breath is so important! I will constantly bring your attention back to your breath inhale/expand, exhale/contract. Class will end with a delicious savasana meditation leaving you rejuvenated and ready to conquer your day-to-day life.

Ashtanga Short Form - on summer hold
An Ashtanga short form class including poses from the primary series. This system of yoga was developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois as a method of uniting breath and movement, generating heat and creating a moving meditation to focus the mind. Each class will feature the same sequence in the same order. This allows you to become more familiar with the asana and to see your progression over time. We’ll begin each class with the breath, connecting to ujjayi pranayama to maintain energy through the practice. We’ll then flow through sun salutations, standing and seated poses, a few backbends and inversions before closing with meditation and rest in savasana. This can be a challenging practice and offers a wonderful way to build strength and awareness. Modifications will be offered throughout to make it more accessible to varying levels
Just like the name Yin-Yasa is a little bit of Yin and a little bit of vinyasa. This gentle class is perfect for those looking to get your blood flowing, increase your flexibility, and strengthen your muscles without being over strenuous. It is highly recommend to help with joint mobility, improve circulation, tone and strengthen muscles, and reduce stress and anxiety.
