Annette Vance RYT instructs the following:
Essential Hatha Yoga
Practice basic yoga postures, the art and benefits of breathing, gentle stretching and basic flowing movement. Modification of poses and use of props are encouraged to enhance alignment and energy within asana. Beginners welcome!
Mindful Vinyasa Flow
Increase your flexibility and strength with this vinyasa flow class. Move mindfully through sequences that connect the breath to the body and mind. Look within to observe the life force flowing through the body with each asana. All bodies are welcomed and invited to quiet the mind, move with the breath, and take the journey within.
Struggling to quiet the mind in meditation? You're not alone! Sound has been used in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing and balancing mind and body. Connect to the breath and enjoy the sound of symphonic gong, singing bowls, chimes, drums and ting-sha bells. Relax and receive the vibration or join in the creation of sound.
