Weekend Warrior - Diane will start your Saturday morning off just right to get you going for the weekend. This class will
leave you with the strength and softness of a warrior giving you room to explore & re-charge.
Yogasana - A Hatha  yoga  based  practice  that revolves around  the physical postures of asanas (yoga poses).   
Nurture yourself physically,  mentally and emotionally  through various  series of stretching, asanas (yoga poses), breathwork,
and relaxation.    
In this class we will be looking at exploring many poses, with emphasis on proper alignment.  This style of practice will allow
you to learn and deepen into the poses, while maintaining the integrity  and benefits the poses offer to your body, mind and
practice.  Poses will be held for a few breaths, allowing you to breathe into and deepen the posture.      
A calming,  gently paced class that will allow you  to gradually build strength, increase  flexibility,  and reduce the effects of
everyday  stress.       
Gentle assists and the occasional use  of props (wall,  straps, cushions, blocks, etc) will effectively and safely allow your body
to  relax and deepen  into your postures.  While gently advancing your practice.    
An example of this  class  would be,  warm up and centering, exploring various postures, a  series of moving through postures
“riding” the breath,  balance postures, release postures,  relaxation.  Each week we will examine postures that target
different body zones on a rotating, or requested basis.   For example, one week, hip openers,  next week shoulders, and so
on.  This being said, you  will be working your entire body every session.
Gentle Flow - This 90 minute class begins with gentle breath work (Pranayama) which builds into gentle movements warming
the entire body. Breaking down poses (asanas) while focusing on technique with any necessary modifications to suit your
practice. This is a very gentle and empowering style of flow class- You will leave feeling refreshed and limber!
Yin Yoga - This class uses gentle and long held postures which target the deep connective tissues of the body. The postures
are led with a compassion, modifications and acceptance, but are often quite challenging due to the length of time they are
held. Yin yoga is a perfect balance to the more active styles of yoga and allows for slow and safe openings within the body,
mind and heart. Open to all levels.
Mom 'n Babe Yoga - This class is a sweet, supportive place to connect with you breath, babe & other new mamas.  We build

and an overall sense of wellbeing.

stretches, meditation & breathing excersises. Laura has a wealth of experience to draw from- Her passions are dance & yoga
for depression.
