We practice awakening the senses to be with life exactly as it is and celebrate the spectrum of human experience instead of shunning or ignoring certain parts of ourselves and our lives.

These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements. 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.
This class will guide you to experience all of your senses: touch, smell, taste, sound, sight, visualization, emotion, and intuition. Get to know all of your capacities to feel, experience, and know.
In this class, you will learn how to move energy through, throughout, and out of the body. Learn how different movements and sounds can invoke various feelings and emotions, and vice versa. In this way, you can have more awareness and control of how you feel throughout your day.
DANCE & EXPRESSION
Set yourself free with movement and dance! Connect with all the chakras, shakti energy, and feel the flow of life throughout your entire body. This session will include guided breathing, visualization, freestyle forms, and lots of fun and play!
This class is a culmination of all of the reflections and opening of your senses. Expect to have fun, explore, discover, and reveal new parts of yourself in a safe space.
