Gentle MOVEMENT

Gentle Movement Yoga is ideal for beginners, anyone recovering from a past injury, and a great compliment for active lifestyles, and athletes.

This fusion movement class will include yin, gentle stretches, restorative, and somatic yoga. Somatic yoga is a safe and gentle practice of slow, mindful movements that are dramatically effective at relieving pain caused by chronically tight muscles. Inspired by the work of Thomas Hanna and Moshe Feldenkrais, Somatic Yoga is a sensory motor training method that increases flexibility to restore full range of motion. With focus and attention, students are able to strengthen the body-mind connection, reeducating the brain and nervous system to release muscle tension.
