Simple practices can bring significant changes into your life. We focus on breath, body movement and postures. Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.
Gentle yoga provides an opportunity for people to build their practice at their own pace. This can include standing or sitting poses, heart openers, bends, twists and salutations. Alignment and flow are the primary focus combined with breathing techniques. Basic yoga teaches you the foundation for future practice that is based out of the mind + body relationship.

Release & Restore
R&R is a state of "just be" and no "doing". This means there is minimal movement, or effort. Using long poses and holds, the mind can use the body to release stress and anxiety. This is called deliberate stillness, known to calm the mind and restore balance in the body. Often used to heal emotional or physical pain, R&R yoga is often the yoga of choice for clients seeking relief from psychological and emotional pain.
