Weekly events and programs

Finding Center

This class is great for beginners as well as fitness buffs wanting to go back to the basics. Show up prepared to move. We will stretch and strengthen the body through a series of postures in which you support your own weight and focus on conscious breathing. We will move slow and there are many modifications/variations so everybody can find a home. The well-rounded sequences temper heat and strength with flexibility and stillness, addressing the body and mind in equal measure. 
Led by: Christel Joy Johnson (E-RYT 500, YACEP)
