These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements, guided by live chanting in the beginning and end of practice.. The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system, strengthen muscles, and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, harmonized, and energized from this yoga practice.
