Deep Stretch is an active stretching class that targets primary muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings and upper back. Living in a forward facing, seated world, (desk/car) these areas tend to be tight for everyone. Tight muscles can cause imbalance and pull the body out of alignment. WE use a very gentle therapeutic approach. This class is excellent to any runners/golfers/active and non active adults experiencing low back pain.

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time -for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.
Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. It also helps us to regulate the body's flow of energy.
