Sundays from 12:30-1:30pm. In this slower paced class, many of the postures are held for longer periods of time than a typical yoga class. This will allow for deep connective tissues to be gently stretched, and for your body to create internal heat. There will also be postures that will flow from one to the next. Class is heated between 85-95 degrees. This class uses low/minimal lighting, allowing you to look inward, and be able to focus on your own yoga practice.
We are located on Huron Street across from the YMCA. You can park in the parking lot in front of the studio. We share a parking lot with several businesses including the Yellow Barn. Look for blue door #22 with a red buddha. Your first class is FREE!
