Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Karen (Session 1a)

Synchronizing breathing with sweeping movements to increase strength and endurance as well as enhance flexibility. All levels of yoga will enjoy this practice.

 ***

Karen Martin has been teaching yoga for the past 9 years. Her yoga journey began in 2011 when she took her very first Power Vinyasa class- she was instantly hooked. The realization of how our minds and bodies are connected and what the two are capable of accomplishing together, drove her to seek teacher training. Karen likes to be challenged and loves inversions and arm balances. She encourages her students to push themselves just a bit further to find what they are truly capable of on their mat. Every yogi level from beginner to advanced can leave Karen's class knowing they have gotten more out of themselves than they ever expected. 

 

 

Bridge to Bliss with Ashley (Session 1b)

There are so many pressures that all of us find ourselves managing on a daily basis. While stress is part of being human, it is so easy to feel bogged down and depleted. The traditional ideas we have around self care can be time consuming, costly and add more to dos to our already overwhelming schedules. We end up judging ourselves for not giving ourselves the self care we know we need because it feels complicated. The good news is it doesn’t have to be this way. In this session you will learn how to respond to outside pressures from a place of inner awareness and compassion. Learn new ways to think about self care including a voice of self compassion, nervous system regulation, and emotion integration, techniques and understanding that are the bridge to bliss as a state of being.

Inner Peace, Outer Beauty with Alexis (Session 3b)
