Guest Teacher



Guest Teacher instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa Flow
  • A flowing sequence of postures combining breath and movement. Build heat from the inside and out, core strength, stamina and flexibility in this class. This is an all-levels class, with modifications provided for all levels of practitioners. 

  • Restorative Yoga
  • Calm and nourish your nervous system as well as build your immunity with this wonderfully relaxing practice. Through the use of props, the body is held restfully and comfortably. The posture allows for the let go of the need to act or think.

    Heal yourself by doing nothing and simply be. Each posture allows you to explore the depth of your breath and the vastness of your spirit. This is a wonderful practice for those who have chronic fatigue, mental stressed, compromised immunity, injuries and chronic health condition.

    Restorative yoga is an effective way to bring balance to over stimulated nerves and to ease chronic tension. Stress and toxins are eased out of the tissues of the body and mind allowing our natural state of physical harmony to arise. The postures done in thoughtful sequence are supported with props such as blankets, bolsters and straps. The spine is gently released in all directions allowing for a deep sense of support. Given sufficient time the nervous system eventually calms bringing the mental and emotional bodies into a blissful balance, and a sense of relaxation, contentment and self-acceptance is felt. Restorative yoga is recommended for everyone, especially those of us with stress in our lives. Come at least once a week for optimal health.


  • Gentle Vinyasa
  • A slower sequence of flowing postures synchronizing breath with movement. Ideal for beginners and intermediate students. Modifications may be suggested for all levels of practitioners.

  • Yoga Tune-Up Vinyasa
  • Self care and foundation/Strength building are the benefits of our Yoga TuneUp-Vinyasaclass. Are you a yogi, jogger, rock climber, cross fitter or triathlete? This class can provide the type of exercises that will strengthen/stretch little used muscles and put you in a stronger position with any sport or physical activity you pursue.

    We will start with mini Vinyasa's targeting little used muscles followed by a flowing sequence of postures combining breath and movement building heating, core strength, stamina and flexibility. We will also use yoga-tune balls which are wonderful tools for self-care. Rolling on the balls loosens plus massages muscles and enables the release of tension.

    This is an all-levels class, with modifications provided for all levels of practitioners.
