Yoga pushes us to look inside ourselves and art helps us to express what we find. Students who have attended live music yoga classes leave feeling inspired, passionate, and part of a community.

Yin poses are held from anywhere to 45 seconds to five minutes with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, many seek Yin classes for their ability to cultivate a deep rooted sense of awareness and inner silence.
Yin and Yang
This class is a harmonic blend of energy rising and blissful release and relaxation. In this class you will begin by building heat in the body and then cool down by holding deep stretching poses for a few minutes. In eastern philosophy the yin yang represents how seemingly opposite or contrary forces are in fact complimentary, interconnected and interdependent in the natural world. Once we are able to tune into those forces we have access to a strength and peace rooted deep within. With this awareness and understanding of our relation to ourselves and the world around us we can experience, wholeness and complete freedom.
Join us for an incredible hour of challenge and surrender, rise and release. This class is accessible for all levels, so let go of any expectations and trust in the amazing benefits that this incredible class has to offer, your mind and body will thank you.
