‘We don’t use our body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into the body.’

Bernie Clark, The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga

~

Katie weaves the philosophy of yoga in every practice; lightly educating you with the lessons of yoga, the emotional and physical body integrated with a love for modern neuroscience research. Through breath and movement, you are free to be. Free to stretch, to release tension, to challenge yourself, to gain strength and flexibility, to set intentions for healthier thoughts/life choices, to develop a deeper connection to yourself. Yoga can be restful, challenging, and playful. Keeping in mind that we all have limitations, each class is gentle to encourage a healthy expansion in the body & mind.

free to be fosters mindfulness of the breath. When we live with fullness of breath, we have access to improved clarity, inner peace, and connection to the present. Yoga is defined as union. Come unite your breath with your presence and cultivate for yourself, a quieting of the mind, deepening of self love, and soft discoveries in the body.

 TUESDAYS & WEDNESDAYS

GENTLE YOGA 

7:00-8:15pm

A gentle yogic experience that encourages a balance between effort and rest, stretching and strengthening, movement and stillness, breathing naturally and exploring breathing techniques to further a quieting of the mind and body. With opportunities to navigate the practice of meditation, we get a sense for the timelessness of the here and now.  As we cultivate the quality of balance in our bodies and mind, we can move, think and feel with more resourcefulness and creativity.

Dress in layers for this class, feel free to bring a blanket and/or pillow from home for optimal comfort

WEDNESDAYS

RESTORATIVE YIN YOGA

9:30-10:30am

A restorative yogic experience that encourages deeper rest that intelligently replenishes your reservoir of vitality. Using props such as bolsters, eye pillows, blankets, sandbags, blocks, the wall and chairs we find the support we need to find a soothing surrender in the body and mind. As we cultivate intelligent rest we reclaim our worthiness to be grounded, calm and resilient to all that we experience.

‘In specifics, you want to practice with open hands and soft palms. You want the shoulders, wrists, and all the joints relaxed. You want to move to and from the core of the body. Don’t put any tension on the periphery. Work without struggle. This is strength that is soft. This is strength receiving. This is male and female united within and without.’

Mark Whitwell, Yoga of Heart: The Healing Power of Intimate Connection
