All Levels Class (start time 5:30pm) – This class is designed for adults who have some basic yoga knowledge.  Taking a mindful approach, modifications will be used and instructed to enhance the postures to make them personal for your body and ability.  Class will include centering, warm ups, sun salutations, a variety of standing, sitting and balancing postures, breath awareness and relaxation.

Please wear comfortable clothing.  Bring a yoga mat (some will be available to purchase for $12).  If you have blocks and straps, please bring those also.
