Yoga Nidra, which means "Yogic Sleep," is a blissful practice where the practitioner is guided into a state of alert awareness and deep relaxation to help relieve stress, resolve inner conflict, restore and calm the mind.
Contemplative Yoga (a class designed by Maryam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander of Beloved Yoga) allows more space to explore the subtle layers of the practice: breathwork and meditation. This class explores the limbs of pranayama (expanding the breath/life force) pratyahara (sensory exploration from the external to the internal) and dharana (focused mental practiced to quiet the mind field and experience peace). The class is 1 hour long with 20 minutes dedicated to silent contemplative practice. Open to all levels.
TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA
A gentle style of yoga designed to assist anyone who has ever experienced trauma, anxiety, depression or a general disconnection from the body. We find our way back inside our bodies through movement and breath, then begin to self-regulate, to feel safe, grounded and present, and to trust our bodies and our minds again.
We offer a safe environment within which to explore, rediscover and reconnect not only with our bodies and minds, but also with family, friends and our community.
Kids yoga helps children develop awareness of their bodies, improves motor skills and gives them an outlet for self-expression. Yoga also teaches focus and self-calming techniques, which are great when it’s time to relax or go to bed!

PRIVATE YOGA THERAPEUTICS
Therapeutic yoga is an inherently holistic approach, simultaneously working on the body, mind, and spirit. We will seek to evaluate each client’s needs and decide what is best on a case-by-case basis. Through the application of yoga methods and practices, we will work towards alleviating specific problems (physical, mental and/or spiritual) coupled with a combination of knowledge (specific to the problem), experience and intuition. The instruction focuses on our client’s condition and how yoga techniques can help them feel better or improve their function.
