Mindful Yoga (Mon 5:30-6:45 pm) < NEW! Starts Jan 8
Join us as we explore the deep heart of yoga in this true all-levels class.

Mindful Yoga offers a quiet practice that allows this listening, with emphasis on self-discovery, guided by the sensations of the breath, finding space in the body, and ease in the mind. Each class includes simple flowing postures, guided meditation, pranayama, and gently-held restorative poses. For everyone, from beginners to advanced practitioners. Runs Jan 8 - Mar 12 (no class Jan 15, Feb 19). Advance registration required.
