Emphasis is given to increasing mobility and strength, releasing tension from the shoulders, neck and back, and encouraging greater circulation and energy flow throughout the body. All levels welcome. Special lunchtime class passes available.

Strong and Mobile:
The core aim of Strength and Mobility is stimulating the nervous system, strengthening the muscles and bones to enhance the stability and mobility of joints. This course does away with complex yoga poses, instead employs targeted stretches and repetitive movement to buttress the weak inks in the kinetic chain, thus improving the athletic and daily functions of the practitioners. Suitable particularly to beginners.

Core Series:
Trunk stability is essential to advancing one’s asana practice. Off the mat, it is also key to better posture and lower back relief. In this winter CORE series, we focus on building heat and strengthening the core – which encompasses the pelvic floor up to the chest – through a combination of whole-body movements, breathwork, and deep stretching. This class is open to all levels.
