These classes are for all levels and accessible for all! Yoga is the union of movement and breath. When we focus on the breath, we may release stress, get out of the mind and into the body to create a desired state of being. Yoga in essence is the practice of breathing in different positions and through different transitions.
Lori will offer modifications and different options. Yoga mats and chairs will be provided for all who register by each Tuesday prior to the Wednesday classes.
No experience is required. Please wear comfortable clothing and hydrate before class. Shoes are not typically worn during the practice.
