A vinyasa flow yoga class that incorporates "sun salutations" with balance/strengthening poses, deeply held stretches, and breath techniques to give the body and mind a full workout.

A hatha yoga class that focuses on warming up the body, then moving into more "yin" style poses. These poses are held longer to gently go deeper into a pose using gravity and relaxation to not only stretch the muscles, but to gently stretch and activate the joints in order to increase mobility and range of motion.

About the Instructor
Lisa Wildermuth

I enjoy watching students in my class feel a sense of confidence in their abilities and see/feel changes in themselves over time.  My hope is for class participants to feel a greater sense of equilibrium between body and mind when they leave yoga class, for when we are more balanced, we make better choices for ourselves and enhance our relationships with those around us.
