Chair Yoga

Friday 10 AM – 10:50 AM
Friday 11 AM – 11:50 AM

Nourish your mind and body with a gentle yoga class that uses a chair for support. The poses are done while sitting on or holding onto a chair. The gentle movements encourage better circulation and the standing poses, with the support of the chair, help build bone density.

Tuesday 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Wednesday 6:15 PM – 7:15 PM

This gentle type of yoga includes breathing, basic yoga poses, and meditation. It is a slower pace and great for beginners.

Meditation

Monday 11:15 AM – 11:45 AM

Meditation is an effective method to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. In this seated class, we start with breathwork followed by gentle stretches and ending with a guided meditation.

Tai Chi

Tuesday 1 PM – 2 PM
Saturday 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM

This low-impact, whole-body, ancient Chinese exercise includes Qi Gong (energy nurturing) practices to further promote internal health and an overall sense of wellbeing. Tai Chi is described as “moving meditation” because it stimulates the mind, body and spirit. Its long-term benefits include improved balance, flexibility, stamina, and posture, and a sharpened mind.

Vinyasa Yoga

Thursday 6:15 PM – 7:15 PM
Saturday 11 AM – 12 PM

This flow class with fluid sequencing of poses has a strong emphasis on alignment and core strength. Great for yogis of all levels wanting to deepen their practice and for athletes looking to find greater flexibility and body balance and coordination.
