Wendy's Moving Well Classes
Wendy's classes have taken a new direction that reflect an evolution currently taking place in the yoga world towards more functional and natural movement. Her classes emphasize moving well, so that everything you do on your yoga mat translates into moving with ease through everyday life. Wendy's classes will leave you feeling a renewed sense of energy, aliveness and joy.
Alex's Gentle Hatha Classes
These classes, taught by Alex, are slow paced and deeply relaxing. The postures range from simple to complex, with full permission to do less. The emphasis is on breath and body awareness. We learn to listen to our body in a new way, honour its limitations and learn from it. Even though the approach is gentle, we will stretch and strengthen, and work toward improved flexibility and balance, mental clarity and emotional state of peace.
Angela's Visionary Dance Classes
Angela's Visionary Dance classes create a movement experience that promotes harmony in the body as it moves in a natural, expressive way. With the use of yoga postures and techniques from pilates and dance you will learn to trust your instinct as you dance to music. You will move your body with a solid foundation, and once you feel grounded, will find fluidity, releasing tension and experiencing a flow in your limbs. Visionary dance uses the mind body connection and a deeper understanding of your body and its potential to give you an true sense of radiating from the inside out.
Lynn's Hatha Yoga Classes
Lynn’s classes take students through a range of postures both simple and more challenging. The focus is on finding balance between strength and flexibility. Mindfulness; observing the breath, body and subtle energy awareness are an integral part of the class. All levels are welcome.
