Yoga for Stress Relief and Anxiety with Jayme

Tuesdays, 6 - 7:15pm

Are you experiencing high levels of stress in your everyday life?
Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed?
Or you're struggling with depression?
Stress is abundant, and seems to be on the rise.
What I love about practicing Yoga is the transformation it brings. Yoga works on many levels, as we are multidimensional Human Beings.
The nervous system is one of the levels we can actively benefit, switching our bodies out of sympathetic (Fight and Flight) response to parasympathetic (Rest and Restore) response. Ahhh!
In yoga practice, through the sequencing of tense and rest/release, we can train our bodies to shift more easily from stress to being at ease in our every day life.

Meditation class - free! Tuesdays,

10:45 - 11:15am 

Meditation is easy. If you can think and breathe, you can meditate!
 Heart rate normalizes, stress hormones subside, the body starts to release the tension, our mind calms down.
This is a free class. Please sign up so we know who is coming 🙂

Most yoga styles fall into the general category of Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is a system of yoga which dates back to Yogi Swatmarama, who lived in the 15th century in India. The aim of Hatha Yoga is to create greater balance between body and mind, to free the flow of the life force in the body, and ultimately, to prepare body and mind for more subtle spiritual experiences of meditation.

A Hatha yoga practice includes yoga asanas, yoga postures designed to improve health and remove imbalances, and Pranayama, traditional breathing exercises to help bring greater peace to the mind and the subtle body.

We are currently offering the following Hatha Yoga classes:
