Stretching with Yoga Elements
The class will be calming yet challenging. We will do different types of stretching to take care of our bodies during the overwhelming school time. Some yoga elements and breathing exercise will be included. This class is for everyone; especially for students who exercise but tend to struggle with stretching, students who want to have a calm self-care time during the week, and students who want to learn more about stretching and their bodies.

Yoga Flow
We’ll start with 5-10 minutes of body weight core exercises to get warmed up, then move into a 45-minute vinyasa flow. This means the beginning will be stretching (sun salutations), followed by a series of strength-building poses, and finally some balancing postures and stretching to finish up. I’ll offer modifications for more/less intense options, so come join us whatever your yoga level!
