I sincerely believe there is a yoga for every body.
Whether your aim is to cultivate deep peace, improve your mood,
increase physical strength, balance and flexibility, become more self-aware, there is a practice for you.
Each day of the week focuses on a different aspect of yoga and its benefits.
Pranayama / Breathing is always offered. Intention and Awareness is developed.
Iyengar principles of alignment and use of props, plus slow mindful practices
to become embodied are consistent through all the practices.
Restorative Yoga Practice
Deeply Relax Your Whole Being
Enjoy an hour of self-care. Set up a calm relaxing environment, soft lighting, essential oils, etc. Together, we'll breathe, set an intention, practice a gentle warm-up, and settle into a few Restorative postures. Resting in stillness, fully supported by yoga props (or your own versions, like pillows and blankets) helps calm the nervous system, settle the mind/body. Reap the long-term physical and mental/emotional benefits of this amazing practice.

Tuesdays w/ a Twist
Strengthen Spinal Muscles and More
Twisting poses strengthen spinal muscles, helping us to maintain an upright posture, now and for years to come. An upright posture allows us to breathe more fully. exercising the lungs and inviting in essential life force. Twists also massage abdominal muscles and organs, keeping energy, oxygen, and blood flowing.
Tuesday Mid-Day - 11:00 AM MT
Wednesdays at the Wall
Use the Supports that are Available
Using the wall for our Asanas (poses), allows us to explore the poses in a new way. We gain insights, learn how to support ourselves, develop balance and strength by holding poses longer than we could without the support of the wall.
Wednesday Mid-Day - 11:00 AM MT
Thursdays for Bone Strength
Strengthen Bones & Muscles / Improve Balance
On Thursdays, we practice poses that have been shown to improve muscle & bone strength as well as improve posture
and balance. Osteoporosis breaks bones, but if we keep our tissues strong, maintain an upright posture and balance,
we are far less likely to experience spinal fractures.
Thursday Mid-Day - 11:00 AM MT
Slow Flow of Gentle Poses
This practice explores aspects of yoga beyond the poses. We flow slowly, in and out of poses, coordinating movement and breath, to get energy flowing and to create awareness of alignment and sensation. We learn mantras - short chants which express an intention. We learn mudras - hand gestures created by ancient yogis to benefit the body, mind, spirit.
Friday Mid-Day - 11:00 AM MT
