Yoga means "union", to join together.
It refers to the state of union or communion with God, one's true self or Higher Power.
I have been a teacher and student of yoga for many years and love to guide slower yoga practices like Gentle, Restorative & Yin.
Yoga is all about turning the gaze inward.
Recognizing who we are and allowing us to return back to our center.
Yoga is to find union - between mind and body, between the individual and her god, between our thoughts and the source of our thoughts, between teacher and student.

A synergy of breathwork, meditation and movement.
Gentle yoga is a less intense, slower yoga practice. It generally includes an emphasis on stretching, meditation, pranayama, and relaxation. In a gentle yoga practice, you'll typically move at a slower, more comfortable pace that reduces stress and strain on joints and muscles. Suitable for all.
A deeply relaxing yoga practice, that will invite in a sense of peace and tranquility.
In restorative yoga, poses are supported and held for a longer period of time, allowing the body to surrender into the pose. This yoga practice is about letting go of the ego, teaching patience, devotion and faith, allowing us to access and rest in the parasympathetic nervous system, the place of rest and digest.
We often forget that we just need time to relax and to be allowed time to unfold and become the best versions of ourselves.
YIN & CONTEMPLATION
Yin & Contemplation will be a very still, cooling and inward practice where we hold each pose for up to about 5 minutes. Within this stillness of the poses the goal is to breathe deeply into the body directing our awareness into the connective tissue (fascia), joints and bones.
There will be the use of props in order to support the body in letting go and surrendering.
Finding pockets of stillness.
The yin poses work to stimulate different parts of the physical body, but also the meridian lines, the energetic channels within the body, all of which are responsible for keeping our physical, emotional, mental and energetic bodies in balance and well.
