Class is a place to gather for camaraderie, fellowship and learning. The classes are designed to help all levels of students create and later maintain a home practice. The home practice is after all where the real gifts of yoga are discovered. Most students struggle to start and maintain a home practice – for this reason sequences and “homework” are given between classes. In all classes philosophical concepts are introduced and discussed.
