Iyengar yoga focuses on alignment and precision in the poses. B.K.S. Iyengar believes that the body is the doorway into the soul. Through absolute attention to the small actions in the body, one's mind is more easily cleared and the student becomes very present. This is a dynamic class moving through the full range of asanas; we commence with a flow of standing postures, often move through backbends/twists/forward bends, and do inversions. While the class is very active, it is also suitable for beginners willing to challenge themselves because the Iyengar method is very instructive on teaching proper alignment in all the asanas and presenting variations of poses that every body type can achieve.

Each class begins with a meditation, our intentions are set, we then proceed to warm the body with sun salutations. We commence the flow with a creative sequencing of standing poses and move onto balance moves, gentle inversions, forward and back bends, and end with supine poses geared toward opening the body while restoring and aligning body, mind, and spirit. All classes are all levels.

This early morning class is designed to start your day off right. Class begins with 15 minutes of pranayama, or guided breathwork. This practice is profoundly beneficial for the health of the lungs, brain, and nervous system. We will continue with a series of strong, foundational postures, held for longer periods of time, often with the use of props. The intention with these postures will be to increase strength and flexibility in the body, while cultivating calm awareness in the mind. Class will end with time to rest in savasana. All levels are encouraged to attend.
Wednesdays & Fridays 7:30-9:00 am
$5-10 suggested donation (cash, check, and Venmo accepted and paid directly to teacher at time of class)
Developing a personal practice is an important step in any yoga student’s journey, but it can often be intimidating to know where to start without the guidance of a teacher.
During open studio, students will have the opportunity to enjoy both the atmosphere of the studio and the energy of other students, while having the freedom to explore their practice on their own.
Come work on specific postures, flow intuitively, sit quietly, lie in savasana... there are no rules except to be respectful of the others in the room.
Open studio time will be managed by yoga teacher Devon Harris. While she will be practicing alongside you, she will also be available to answer any questions or offer assists when requested.

Students who have practiced Yoga Nidra with me have reported, "A deeper sense of relaxation than they ever have before in their lives, losing all sense of time and even Self."
The Sanskrit word Nidra is broken down into two syllables; "Ni"- meaning nothingness, absence, or void, and "Dra"- meaning to draw forth. Nidra can bring you to a higher level of awareness and consciousness, and this can have lasting benefits during your "waking" hours such as reducing anxiety and stress, normalizing sleep patterns and releasing old patterns of behavior or thought.
