Individual Description of Classes:
Friday, Saturday, Sunday 9-10a
Simple and gentle held postures – holding in each position for 3 minutes or more. These juicy long holds help to hydrate and take care of our connective tissue (tendons, ligaments and fascia). And the stillness is an opportunity to practice mindfulness, turning the physical practice into a meditation.

This method enhances the circulation of chi throughout the body, nourishes the organs and encourages mental focus – creating an atmosphere of internal calm and balanced energy.
