Yin Yoga: an antidote to today's fast-paced, stressed-out & maxed-out lifestyle; an opportunity for calm, stillness, & the practice of being present.
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, meditative-type yoga practice. Poses are held for longer, allowing the body (AND mind) to settle in for a more complete release that targets not only the muscles, but also the deeper tissues like fascia, ligaments, and joints.
While Yin does provide vast physical benefits, the mental & emotional ones (like improved sense of relaxation, calm, and mental clarity) are paramount.
This class is well suited for beginners, as well as anyone looking to help manage stress, or simply relax & unwind at the end of the day.
Mondays 7pm (Theresa)

Created to be accessible & achievable for all students, regardless of abilities or prior experience, this class will also allow those with more experience to delve deeper into their yoga practice.
Strong & Steady | Functional Yoga
Mixing Pilates, Yoga, & other fitness styles, this fun fusion class is designed to leave students with a stronger core; long, lean muscles; & improved mobility & balance.
Pilates focuses on developing a strong core, improving posture, and increasing strength, length, and mobility, all while purposefully working to connect the mind, body, & spirit. The end results are long, lean muscles; a stronger core; and better posture.
This class combines the power of Pilates with Yoga & other fitness styles. Caroline brings a wealth of experience to her classes. As a former Physio/Occupational Therapy Assistant, her vast knowledge of the body's anatomy, especially when dealing with injuries, goes well beyond the average fitness instructor.
Expect to be challenged in class, but never beyond. Due to its rehabilitative nature, Pilates can be excellent for those recovering from an injury or dealing with arthritis, pain, or injury recovery.
Wednesdays 5:30pm (Caroline)
Flow / Yin Yoga
This blended class starts with a slightly faster pace - Hatha yoga moving in a flowing sequence, combining movement with breath; then finishes with soothing Yin poses, designed to calm the body & mind - culminating in a wonderful "let-go" experience.
Our Flow/Yin class is designed to be a balance of both challenge & relaxation for students of all levels & abilities; great for busy minds, as the pace at the start of class demands one's focus; by the time the Yin portion comes, it's easy to settle & simply let go.
