hatha yoga

this ancient style of yoga incorporates mindful breathing and asanas, or postures, that focus on alignment and can be practiced and modified to all psyches and body types. yoga increases awareness, reduces stress, improves flexibility, and helps build strength. this can result in rejuvenation, healing, and prevention of ailments.

restorative yoga

restorative yoga incorporates gentle supported postures, often using sandbags, bolsters, and blankets. it specifically targets the parasympathetic nervous system – shifting the body to a relaxed state. restorative yoga is ideal for stress relief, improving limited mobility, and natural healing.

yin yoga

yin, the counter balance to yang, in yoga, encourages a more passive, meditative state. this yoga practice is similar in style to hatha yoga however with the postures being held for time, yin accesses the connective tissues and joints, which make up for almost half of our flexibility + range of motion. yin yoga is slow yoga, beautiful!

kids yoga
