Yoga & Meditation Class Descriptions
ALL LEVELS FLOW
Open to all levels, a class that focuses on introducing students to a flowing (or vinyasa) practice that connects movement and breath. Beginning with an easy warm up, sun salutations, and a series of poses including balances, twists, and inversions, designed to increase flexibility, balance, and an overall sense of well-being. There will always be modifications, so you can work at the level best suited for you. Good for most levels.
This class combines gentle postures, stretches, and restorative poses to increase body awareness and mindfulness skills. Appropriate for individuals who are new to yoga, have physical concerns, or would like a slower paced class.
Join us for a weekly celebration of yoga’s spiritual dimension where the definitions of sanctuary meet yoga’s union of mind, body, and spirit. Sanctuary Yoga seeks to provide an open, safe and supportive environment where every body and soul is encouraged to explore life’s spiritual dimension through reflections, meditation, breathing exercises and the physical practice of yoga. All levels of yoga and spiritual development are welcome! Ignite and inspire yourself and those around you!
