Using simple yoga postures, breath awareness, meditation, and mindfulness, this course aims to help you deepen your mind/body connection. The act of releasing physical tension and moving your body in new ways can help you move through stuck emotions, create new mental patterns, and bring new awareness into your life.

Each week this course will gradually build upon a set of basic yoga postures, appropriate for all levels and abilities. Through the postures, breathing, and meditative exercises, you’ll learn more about your body’s responses to stress. You may discover techniques that help manage mental/emotional patterns and increase groundedness, calmness, and emotional well-being.

Brand-new beginners welcome! Keep a notebook handy and something to write with. Our classes are intended to be a complement to, but not a replacement for, professional mental health support.
