Pause and soothe your soul with this gentle yoga practice. Relax and enjoy an empowering, accessible and inclusive practice which aims to meet students where they are physically, mentally, and emotionally. The intention is to offer a meditative, breath-focused practice which will calm and ground while lifting the spirit. Through skillfully presented options, all levels can receive a rich and satisfying experience. This practice concludes with a sumptuous, restful Savasana.

You do not need to attend all six weeks; you’re welcome to come whatever dates suit your schedule. Please call the church office for more information at 860-666-4689 or to sign up for a class.
