Adaptive Chair Yoga with Sally MacDonald
Intro to Traditional Ashtanga with Michael Dynie
Ashtanga vinyasa yoga is a challenging practice that originated in Mysore, India developed by Tirumalai Krishnamacharya almost 100 years ago. This introductory class is for those who are new to Ashtanga, with modifications offered for various ability levels, and an emphasis on foundations. The term vinyasa means, “to place in a special way.” Poses are strung together on the breath and sequenced to help bring balance to the body and mind.
All Levels Flow + Guided Meditation with Laura D'Alessandro
Get ready for a journey! In this class, we never go back – though there is a gentle progression, we won’t be building on a repeating set, and though there are some more challenging Asanas, there isn’t a peak pose to achieve. Laura builds in layers, so there will be options for accessibility throughout. During Savasana, Laura will guide you through a healing meditation.
Flow with Randa Laham
This Flow yoga class will have a mixture of breath-work and energizing movement followed by stretching and meditation. The class will begin with gentler movements to warm up the body, then move into progressively more challenging flowing sequences. These may include sun salutations, standing poses and seated postures.
Emphasis on linking breath to movement, while working to build strength, endurance, balance, and flexibility.

With the help of a teddy bear or stuffed animal, we explore yoga through sequences that include movement, stretching, breathing, games,and singing along to some super cool songs.
