Special Classes


New Class Mondays!

Slow Flow & Deep Stretch

with Val O’Connor

Mondays, 6:00PM-7:00PM

This class is part of our weekly schedule. No prior yoga experience is needed.

This one hour of guided yoga flow and stretch is for students looking to increase flexibility and range of motion. Using the breath with focused stretching allows the muscles to relax and lengthen. Neither experience or flexibility are required, just an open mind and a willingness to have fun while trying something new. This class is accessible to all fitness levels and encourages students to develop their own style and grace.


Gentle Yoga

with Alison Simpson

Mondays, 11:30AM-12:45PM

This class is part of our weekly schedule. No prior yoga experience is needed.

This gentle yoga class is based on the Hatha tradition and appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice.

This slow mindful practice equally strengthens and stretches, increasing flexibility and range of motion of the major joints through carefully guided movements linked with the breath to allow a gradually unfolding of the body and mind.

When we slow down, move with the breath and honor our body as it is in the moment we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, moving beneath the stress and busyness of everyday life to a place of deeper connection and peace.


Harmony & Balance

with Rose Bogert

Wednesdays, 11:30AM-12:45PM

This class is part of our weekly schedule. No prior experience is needed.

This class will focus on finding more harmony and balance through gentle, flowing physical movements, and learning to access “Pranayama”, the power of the breath to calm or energize. This will be followed by deep relaxation to renew the body and meditation for connection with the Divine thread of the Universe.


Hatha Yoga

with Lisa Sargenti

Wednesdays 6:00PM-7:00PM

This class is part of our weekly schedule. No prior yoga experience is needed.

This class will include both repetitive movements and holding asanas for several breaths to increase awareness and maintain full attention on what is happening in our mind and body. Emphasis is on the development of each student’s individual movement potential, not in the attainment of perfect form. From this point of view, classical asana practice is a means of deepening our ability to be present and aware. Class will end with savasana and chakra meditation to create positive pathways of transformation and wellness in our body, mind and heart.

This class is for all levels. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle. Yoga mats and props are available for your use.


Vinyasa Yoga

with Taylor Jackson

Thursdays 8:00AM-9:15AM

This class is part of our weekly schedule. No prior yoga experience is needed.

Taylor will begin each vinyasa class with a reading, dharma talk or inspiration paired with breath work, followed by a relaxed, fluid warm-up leading into a more physical practice. She will complete each class with a meditation and a relaxing savasana. Taylor focuses on connecting breath to movement in each class, leading students inward for the hour and fifteen minutes students are practicing. She brings a flow, rhythm and connection to the sequences and movements throughout the class. Taylor’s goal for each class is for students to walk away feeling connected to themselves and accepting where they are that day.
About Taylor: Taylor Jackson received her 200-hour Yoga Certification in March 2014 from the Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica. She has a consistent self-practice and passion for learning about many types of yoga and movement including, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Kundalini and QiGong. In her classes, Taylor focuses on building strength and connecting breath to movement. She balances each class with challenging and restoring sequences. Her passion is to help each student connect to yoga in their own way, to grow, and to find what feels right for them.
