Gentle Yoga Series

Jen will guide you through an all-levels gentle experience of vinyasa yoga. Combining her therapeutic knowledge of yoga, massage, hypnotherapy and other techniques this class is a creative exploration cultivating a sense of meditation, relaxation, physical strength, and flexibility. During class we explore movements to help integrate mind, body awareness.  We may do strengthening exercises, yoga postures.  The passive more restorative postures are held for several minutes to allow the muscles time to relax, soften and let go. This is a deeply calming and meditative practice. Great for beginners and all bodies. You are welcome here, exactly as you are today.

The intention of this practice is to first strengthen the muscles and bring awareness to our tightness and our strength, and then lengthen our muscles with deep supported nourishing movements.  Allowing lots of time for stillness, breathing, and care to be embodied.


Class 1) Strengthen and Restore the muscles and joints in the hips and legs
