Benefits: Here we are at the first of 3 separate leg, stretching poses. After completing the balancing series, we have effectively and efficiently warmed the muscles of the legs for a deeper, more therapeutic approach in this series. While this pose does continue to stretch and tone the greater muscles of the legs, we also […]
Benefits: Here we are at the final balancing posture of our balancing series. Balancing Stick pose is a one legged balance held for 10 seconds only. Because the posture itself is held for such a short amount of time, it is important to give your “all” from the start – and hold on until you […]
Benefits: Here we are at the balancing series! After an intensely focused warm-up series, we arrive at our one-legged balancing series. This is where the mind and body really come together in an effort to strengthen the spirit. Once the body is properly warmed, the challenges of class become a way that we strengthen our […]

"Love this place! Great teachers, classes, atmosphere, and such a wide variety of people that attend class from young to old.
"I have been a 'regular' for several years now, and truly look forward to each class. Each instructor has their own style (same poses but different approaches to challenging the students, which makes each class unique).
"I started attending classes more often following a shoulder injury, and my - what a difference in gaining back my range of motion through regular practice!
