Yoga with Breath Control - New!

This is a general yoga class with an emphasis on breath control. For centuries yogis have used breath control, or pranayama, to promote concentration and improve vitality. Yoga is like a stool with three legs: 1. physical postures; 2. meditation, or stilling the mind; and 3. conscious breath control. All three are necessary for stability, and breathing exercises are the connective tissue that deepens mastery of the other two. In this series of classes, we incorporate controlled breathing into the practice of yoga.

The class is structured so it's suitable for both beginners and experienced. A priority is that the yoga is enjoyable, easy to follow, and also allows a more experienced student to take options to build into a pose. We start a class with grounding, breathwork, and a warm-up, we then take the class into a series of peak postures that will cover most positions, standing, balance, kneeling, sitting, and on your back. Inversions are kept to a few simple and easy postures. We bring attention to the breathwork for each posture. The class is completed with breathwork and relaxation.
