This class will focus on the foundational poses of yoga and on simple Pranayama (breath exercises). Comfort and ease in the body will take place over alignment as body awareness and mindfulness grow in the participants. Feel free to bring any extra tools you may have (blocks, straps, blankets, etc) to help support your body and find your best expression of the yoga asanas!

Tai Chi

In this course, we will discover and develop the “three treasures” of jing- body, qi- breath and shen-spirit, through the gentle and restorative practices of qigong and tai chi. Each class will include a full-body warm-up to loosen and align the joint systems and relax, stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons to facilitate the flow of chi through the body. Special emphasis will be placed on alignment to help with balance and posture.
