Early Risers Club (Monday-Friday)- For those who are up and about, this gathering begins with a seated meditation at 6:30am, followed by a gently guided yoga practice from 7:00-8:00am. Instructor: Steve WestIn

Chair and Standing Yoga (Mondays and Fridays)- A fun and nurturing hatha yoga experience without the fear or discomfort of getting up and down off the floor. Modifications and professional instruction ensure that you will gain strength, flexibility, balance and a deeper connection within. Instructor: Emily Van Eman

Chair and Standing Yoga Level II (Wednesdays)-Same great benefits and fun of Chair and Standing yoga with added options for more core, balance and strengthening. Everything can be modified! Instructor: Emily Van Eman

Kundalini Yoga (Tuesdays)-The exercises and concepts most commonly associated with yoga are stretches, postures, meditation, and relaxation. Kundalini Yoga includes all these but also uses a wide range of rhythmic, sequential exercises incorporating breath and sometimes sound. Oxygen capacity is increased along with blood flow to the glands, resulting in heightened awareness and endurace so you can meet and overcome the challenges in your life. Always remember to honor your body and participate to the degree that you are comfortable. Kundalini Yoga is perfect for beginners, so join us even if you have never done any yoga. We would love to have you! (Jagdeesh)

Integral Yoga (Wednesdays)-Called Integral Yoga because it is the integration of the body, mind and spirit. Although the focus is on the different organs or muscles being engaged, there is always the breath to be made aware of. This form of yoga is considered to be gentle due to its emphasis on not going to the pain but just to the edge of it. You will receive very gentle adjustments and direction for correct alignment, which alleviates any chance of injury. This class includes pranayama, a short meditation and an extended deep relaxation, which allows the body to incorporate and integrate the poses. Kathleen does not take herself too seriously and encourages you to be easy on yourself also! Instructor: Kathleen Sweeny

Gentle Yoga (Wednesdays and Fridays)-This well-balanced flow is a magical and inspiring blend of traditional postures, energetic therapy, and rehabilitative education. Transitions are smooth and clearly described for any new students. Regular practice will tone every system of the body and leave you feeling more connected to yourself, your purpose and the world. Every class is unique! Participants must be able to get up and down off the floor independently. Please come early to discuss any limitations. Instructor: Emily Van Eman

Level 1,2 Yoga (Sundays)- A slightly more energized version of Gentle Yoga. Come without expectations and sometimes a sense of humor as we play with interesting sequences and modifications for both more advanced and beginner practitioners. Every class is unique! Please come early to discuss any limitations. Instructor: Emily Van Eman

Therapeutic Yoga (Tuesdays)- Slow, strong, meditative yoga that utilizes breath and posture to cultivate inner stillness, compassion, and self-trust while building physical strength, balance and flexibility. Learn practical applications of yoga tools to improve mental health and keep body systems in balance. Beginner-friendly and suitable for all levels of experience.  Instructor: Jenne Sluder

Intermediate Yoga Flow (Tuesdays)- This is a level 2,3 class, with more challenging flow, variations and detailed descriptions of anatomy and alignment. This class will cover traditional postures including inversions, creative spin-offs, and core-centered movements of all kinds! Come without expectations and ready to work. Instructor: Jenne Sluder

Slow Flow & Yin (Saturdays)- An energetic sequence of poses that links breath with movement, followed by seated, relaxing yin poses to increase hip flexibility. Accessible pace and emphasis on alignment makes this a perfect class for advanced beginners and intermediate students. Instructor: Kathleen Sweeney

B.O.D.Y. Mapping- B.O.D.Y. stands for Branches Of the Divine You, and it specifically correlates to the nerve plexus of our chakra system. The chakras work independently and together to create a whole psycho-energetic system that systematically stores emotions and thoughts in the body. This class focuses on somatic therapy movements paired with breath, mantras, and self-loving guidance to open and tone each of the chakras to offer you a more balanced and aware presence with your Self. This class will be hold the same basic structure each week so you can see how you feel in each of the movements as you heal and evolve. All levels are welcome! Instructor: Emily Van Eman

Hatha Yoga Flow (Thursdays)- A slow-paced, moderate practice focused on breathing, relaxation, and a meditative flow. This class is intended to provide the student with basic poses and relaxation techniques; gradually adding more challenging poses, as they advance. Students will also be introduced to the spiritual aspect of yoga through the codes of conduct, observances and the Yoga Sutras (threads of wisdom), which are part of the eight fold path and the timeless teachings of the Himalayan masters. Instructor: Lyn Levin

Open Sling Relaxation (Thursdays)- Come kick off your shoes, and climb into one of our luxurious hammocks while soft music lulls you to a deep relaxation. Stay for 10 minutes or an hour! Each sling supports 2,000 lbs, so you are very safe, and they are OH SO COMFORTABLE! A donation of $5-10 is requested. Fascilitator: Emily Van Eman

Tai Chi Chih (Mondays and Thursdays)- This beautifully modified version of Tai Chi Ch'uan, consists of 19 gentle, graceful movements that can be done by almost anyone. Tai Chi works with the building blocks of the universe--yin and yang, bringing balance to the chi or energy within us and our lives. Instructor: Beverly Ward

Yoga Nidra Workshop (every 4th Sunday)- Gentle stretching, self-massage with essential oils, and a restorative yoga session set to soothing live music, culminate in a Yoga Nidra practice. Yoga Nidra guides you to the twilight place between awake and asleep where ultimate relaxation resides, with an invitation to connect more deeply to life. Clinical research highlights the effectiveness of Yoga Nidra for increasing vitality, improving sleep, managing chronic illness, and relieving stress, anxiety, and depression.  Instructor: Jenne Sluder
