Gentle yoga classes are appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice.

A gentle yoga style encourages a highly individualized approach to practice with on-going  encouragement to make moment-to-moment adjustments.

Gentle yoga classes serve a variety of distinct needs:  people with movement limitations, profound stiffness due to lack of activity; relief from disabilities and chronic conditions e.g., arthritis, back pain and other musculoskeletal issues; recovery from  surgery, illness or injury; for seniors, new practitioners, women who are pregnant and those seeking stress-reduction or weight management.

A gentle yoga approach has even been found to be an important compliment in programs to reverse heart disease or provide relief from the challenging conditions of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, as well as mood disorders.
