Gentle Therapeutic Yoga and Breathwork Classes

Gentle Therapeutic Yoga with Jennifer:

Therapeutic Yoga skillfully blends movement (yoga poses/somatic exploration) and breathwork, with a meditative focus for a full body practice that calms, nurtures, strengthens and opens one into flexibility of body and mind.

Yoga is protective and enlivening. 

Freeing you from habitual patterns of tension, this yoga creates a sense of spaciousness within, dissolves stress, strengthens core muscles, joint health, centeredness, postural alignment and groundedness, increases breath capacity and breath awareness, shifts stagnant emotions into movement and release, and is attentive to the subtle stuff of the mind, helping to free us from the driving forces of unconscious actions and thoughts.

This yoga is trauma aware, centering, and serenity building for gently living your beautiful life.

You’ll practice yogic techniques that you can bring into your everyday experience for simply living a good day, and for increasing your capacity to be creatively present in your life. A yogic attitude toward self and practice is one of kindness, patience, and tenderness.  We grow into our best selves in an inner atmosphere of loving care. 

You’re most welcome to join in and enjoy!  All levels of practice are welcome! Beginners are welcome!
