Gentle All Levels: Emphasis is moved into the heart as we practice with grace and ease. Peaceful. Meditative. Therapeutic. Strengthen gently, unwind tense muscles, and release stress. Appropriate for all levels of experience.

Appropriate for students of All levels.
Kids' Yoga Play Class is for children ages 3-7, with parents/caregivers welcome as well! Through imaginative play and games we will explore yoga and movement combined with cooperation and community.
"I had always wanted to take a yoga class but afraid it would be too hard. I took one right before my climb to the top of Mt. Shasta with the Breast Cancer Fund. It was not only calming, centering and easy for a beginner, but also spiritually awakening to my inner space." -Dr Shanhong Lu
