Virtual Classes: Info & Schedule

Fall 2020

Virtual Yoga Classes

A regular mind-body practice keeps you flexible, strengthens the back, legs, arms, and joints, builds breath awareness, and opens the heart. Strong & Steady Yoga is an approach that builds inner resilience as we refine our physical alignment in postures.  

The uncertainties surrounding us this fall are truly mind-shattering — the level of stress rising inside of us individually and collectively makes it easy to freeze up and harden on the inside.

As antidote, all of my Strong & Steady Yoga classes will be dedicated to tending a courageous heart. Each class is dedicated to support the release of stress and renew a sense of flow in body, mind and spirit.

Class List, Dates, Times & Cost posted below.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT ZOOM YOGA: Virtual classes allow you to be with YOUR experience without the distraction of other participants in the room.

At the same time, I cannot see you well enough to ensure safety.

You are responsible to gauge the safety of your practice within your personal limitations. It’s better to build up strength over time rather than force or strain. The experience you should notice is exertion with relaxation. Stay safe and adapt the teachings to your level of energy and flexibility, inviting some joy and release into your day! Come try it out!
