What is yoga about for you?

Yoga is so much more than exercise.  Most of us know that, but our options for exploring our yoga are pretty limited in a regular yoga class.

Designed to invite inquiry, experimentation, expression, feeling, relating and being, Living Yoga is a series of classes that acknowledge the gift that yoga can be to our bodies AND our way of living.

Living Yoga is an ongoing exploration of the holistic practice of yoga

An expression of the yoga I practice, teach and think about...

Living yoga is a weekly class exploring what it means to live yoga at every level of being. Each term I'll offer movement, breath and Yoga Nidra classes, and discussion circles. It’s an opportunity to explore and expand our practice of living, listening, learning and connecting together.

Living Yoga

Anchored by key mind-body themes which flow through our physical, mental and emotional experience, each class will be an opportunity to see yourself, your yoga and your life through the lens of ancient wisdom.  Each class will take you a step deeper towards expanding how your yoga serves you.

Term 1 - August - September 2022

This term we'll explore foundations of the body, of living, of being and our elemental connections to ourselves, the earth, and each other. We'll be guided by the questions...

What is YOUR foundation for living and practice?  How can it be felt and expressed?
