Free Movement – Give yourself permission to leave your busy mind and let your body flow through breath, expression, and motion. Free movement allows us to connect on an energetic and somatic (or body) level. There is no thinking with free movement – no specific form or pose. This class is for anyone who wants to relieve stress, increase cardio, connect with the body, and enjoy sound and breath. Bring water, a towel, and a yoga mat for the beginning & end of class, but this is not a yoga class. Barefooting is encouraged but not required. Each class begins with a short meditation breath to body connection and ends in stillness (Savasana). 


Functional Fitness, Balance, and Fall Prevention – Participants may use a chair, cane, or walker as needed. Class includes warm-up, functional strengthening and conditioning, fall prevention, stretching and cool-down. Class uses small weights and resistance bands to improve mobility, stability, strength, coordination, and balance. Gain confidence in staying on your feet, build strength, and practice negotiating obstacles and walking patterns to improve agility, balance, neuromuscular coordination, and reaction times. 


Gentle Flow Yoga – Practice gentle asana sequences to calm the mind, open the body and strengthen form. Breathing techniques and props will help connect to a core base movement.
