Therapeutic Yoga Classes

We offer weekly and special 2-hour weekend classes designed to strengthen and heal vulnerable areas of the body, such as the back, knees, neck, and shoulders. Props, such as bolsters, blocks, and straps are used to permit students to adjust poses for optimal access and safety, and to prevent further injury. Students of all ages benefit from these classes as needed.

 

Other therapeutic classes are geared towards students over the age of 50, who may have age-related physical issues and want to improve their balance, maintain bone density, gain muscle strength and flexibility, or lower their blood pressure. Many of these students proudly define themselves as seniors, who have experienced firsthand the physical and emotional benefits of a consistent yoga practice.
