Gentle & Restore
Align. Stabilize. Stretch. Nourish.
This class combines equal halves of Gentle and Restorative Yoga. In the first half of the class, you will be guided through a gentle floor and standing asana. It will reconnect you to your body and allow for the fatigue and stress to start falling away. For the second half of the class, Jen will guide you through a series of Restorative Yoga postures. Props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks will be used to support your practice. Leave this class feeling relaxed, with new space for healing and inspiration.
Each Monday at 10am with Jen Yockey
Come to a Kundalini-inspired class uniquely designed to move the body but more-so, shift the consciousness and release pent up blockages of the psyche.
Each Friday at 9:30am with Cassidy Barbeau
Connect. Open. Stretch. Challenge.
Challenging in a different way, Yin Yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness.
Class is set to soft music and guided instruction to cultivate stillness both in the mind and the body. Yin yoga helps students gain greater flexibility and mobility, as well as a new sense of mental calm and balance that continues off the mat.
Yin is a great way to balance the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga. Yin is appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).
Each Wednesday at 10am with Jen Yockey
Slide in to the weekend...GENTLY.
The slower pace of this Gentle flow class allows time to adjust each posture to best suit your body. This extremely accessible class is an ideal choice for anyone looking to develop a practice of conscious, mindful movement with some support. Moving from floor stretches to a gentle flow (without DFD), you will be guided to connect, slowly and gently, with your body and breath.
Each Saturday at 9:30am with Jen Yockey
Jen has been in recovery since 2009. And since then, she has found many pathways to sustain her recovery; one of those ways is yoga and another pathway is connection.
She has created a safe and sacred space to come and breathe, move and connect with others that are either in recovery or considering their relationship with substances.
Additionally, she recognizes that addiction has a broader definition. We can become attached (unhealthily) to busyness, people, food, work, screens and people pleasing, too.
Regardless of the habits or ruts we have got ourselves in to, there is a way out. We do change, evolve, and thrive.
The ONLY label that you have when coming to this class is HUMAN. ♥
*This is a donation based class.
*This is an all levels class.
*You might be someone that is watching a loved one suffering, this class would be appropriate for you, too.
Each 1st and 3rd Friday of the month with Jen Yockey

STRETCH for Men
This is a 60 minute experience that will not only relax but rejuvenate.
People often describe that they feel like they are being submerged in sound, like the sound waves created by the Tibetan singing bowls are a visceral thing and they are washed in waves of water. They use words like “cleansed” and “cleared” to describe their experience.
One Tibetan Bowl Practitioner said "I like to joke that there’s mindful meditation and mind-emptying meditation; Sound Bath is the latter. You see, your brain is like a human computer. You have all these tabs open and, over time, your system will remind you that it’s time to reboot. When you finally allow your system to re-calibrate, what happens? It comes back faster, fresher and clearer."
Bring your yoga mat, pillow and blanket or you are welcome to use our props.
