Summer is here and I hope you are soaking up all the pleasures of warmth and light.
Our summertime practice always brings a few surprises, including a focus on conscious breathing with movement, relieving muscle tension with Acu-yoga, raising endorphins by using our voice, balancing energy centers (Qigong) restorative yoga poses (using props)
Yoga is the perfect compliment to our busy summer lifestyle.

"Your approach to yoga is really welcome to someone like me who's always worried about "looking good" and "doing it right". When I come to your class, I
know it's not about competition, even with myself. It's about creating ease
within each pose and that's what is so healing about your classes. They are
deceptively gentle. I never get stressed or tired during class yet I always
feel I had a good workout afterward! "- Lori Lively
