Gentle on the body. Experience a therapeutic focus on mental and spiritual health
Gentle yoga can improve your mood, relax you and can help reduce stress or negative emotions. This class is especially suitable for beginners and others looking for a softer, slower practice that builds on a gentler sequence of poses. We start by centering and mindfully exploring the breath which helps to balance and synchronize body and mind. Slow movements gently stretch your body: the muscles, the skin, even massaging organs and increasing blood flow into the areas needing it the most.
Class concludes with a period of deep relaxation; leaving us feeling relaxed, renewed and restored. This class is a great way to start your day with more energy or transition from a hectic day into a tranquil and restful evening.
