: Most people have some strain or compression in the shoulder, especially on their dominant side. This is due to trauma, repetitive strain, or chronic pulling that effects stability of the neck. In this class we practice ways to release the upper arm, shoulder and neck. We practice movements to stretch, strengthen and stabilize the musculature around the shoulders. We begin mobilizing the shoulders on the floor followed by seated and standing poses that prepare the shoulders for weight bearing.

: Blood is the essence of our life force, and transports prana, the essential life force, through the blood stream. In yoga, when we bathe all the cells and tissues of the body there is radiant health. This class is designed to help irrigate blood and lymph through all the channels of the body.
3 Hrs $85 Individual session Register NowBREATH:
Breath is not only the inhalation and the exhalation, but the dynamic pumping of the life force (prana) throughout the entire body. In this class we practice suffusing blood into all the living tissues in order to oxygenate and revitalize the body tissues.
3 Hrs $85 Individual session Register NowBONE:
As we age the bones become lighter and less stable. In this class we learn to stand in the bones where the marrow or deep life force resides. One of our aims is the practice of “bone dropping technique” to give weight to the bones.
2.5 Hrs $70 Individual session Register NowSKIN:
The skin is our boundary between ourselves and the world. So often the skin is constricted, dehydrated or numb due to stress and fatigue. In this class we expand and tone the skin in yoga postures by stretching our “skin suit” in yoga postures. In this way we support lymph drainage.
1.5 Hrs $45 Individual session Register NowJOINTS:
The aim of a vital yoga practice is to keep the health of the joints. As we age the joints become compacted, arthritic and lose mobility. Arteries, veins and nerves pass through the joints, so when the joints are supple, overall circulation is improved. This class is devoted to detail movements in the knees, ankles, shoulders, wrists and spine.
