Focusing on breath, balance, and deliberate placement of the body, gives the early yoga practitioner a strong foundation on which to build their practice. Holding the postures will help build the strength, experience and confidence to move into basic flowing postures. Beginner yoga offers a supportive environment for those new to yoga or for those who are looking to assure proper form and to deepen their understanding of yoga. Ages 13 and up.

Yogabilities™ adapted Yoga classes are designed to bring the gifts of Yoga practice to individuals with disabilities who can benefit from a slower pace and simpler instruction.
Classes are typically sixty minutes long, and employ the use of props such as Yoga flash cards, bean bags, and manipulatives as appropriate along with soothing music to introduce Yoga in a fun and accessible way. Yogabilities™ is designed to encourage generalization of stretch and relaxation into daily life. No Yoga experience is necessary. Each class ends with a guided relaxation and most classes include a take-home hand-out for home practice.
Yoga tailored for little bodies and their big developing hearts and minds. We create a safe space for children to learn compassion, acceptance and care for oneself and the world around them. Yoga teaches children the ability to self-regulate and to cope with the everyday stresses and pressures that come with growing up. Classes include guided meditation taught in kid-friendly language, yoga poses to foster body- and spatial-awareness, games that encourage teamwork, and always a ton of FUN. All classes culminate in an age-appropriate savasana (often, surprisingly, the class favorite--even for the always-on-the-move yoginis). Giving children the gift of yoga helps them to plant the strong, healthy roots they need to blossom in life.

SPA yoga is a 75 min slow-flow, floor-based, whole-body sensory experience based on Fluid Yoga sequencing. By engaging all five of the senses with soft candlelight, soothing music, aromatherapy, lots of hands-on assists and a renewed awareness of taste (and sometimes chocolate!), SPA aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation. The physical practice takes time to open the body’s subtle energy and prepares students to experience new depths of awareness in an extended, guided shavasana. During SPA, you may discover extra hands on assists and massages, a calming candlelit room atmosphere, delightful scents and beautiful music in the background. Be prepared to feel like you just walked out of a SPA!
