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!

  • Sound Meditation
  • 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.

  • Restorative Yoga
  • Restorative yoga offers an opportunity for the body to remember stillness. With the physical body supported using blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets the mind slows and we reconnect with our true nature of relaxation. The practice often includes gentle breath work, aromatherapy, sound vibration, guided imagery, mudra, or yoga nidra.
