Gentle Yoga

A class designed for those students wanting a slower paced practice, for those with physical issues, or for the mature person starting out in yoga.  There is an emphasis on breath awareness and increasing flexibility, though asanas (postures) to increase overall strength are also practiced.

Gentle & Restorative Yoga

This class begins with the body in a restorative pose and breath awareness.  Restorative poses use props to support the body in a way that it can soften and relax without having to do anything.  The class then continues with gentle poses increasing flexibility and gentle strengthening.  

Hatha Flow

This class explores a variety of postures held for several breaths with a strong focus on alignment.  There is an emphasis on breath awareness and concludes with a short meditation.  

 

Benefits of a Regular Yoga Practice

Stress Relief

Yoga is a powerful antidote to stress aiding the nervous system in returning to its more balanced state.

Increase Strength

Many postures not only increase muscular strength, they do so without compromising flexibility.  A stronger and more flexible body helps prevent back pain and arthritis.

Manage Anxiety

Utilize the power of various breathing techniques (pranayama) and postures (asanas) to manage and calm anxiety.

Improves Flexibility

Through movement with breath, the body stretches and releases tension returning elasticity into tight muscles.

Revitalize Restore Renew

Regular yoga practice increases blood flow, drains lymph glands, lowers blood pressure, improves sleep and balance, along with numerous other benefits.  Tissues and cells are renewed and revitalized restoring the body back into its natural state of harmony.

Mind, Body & Spirit Connection

Cultivate deep inner peace by reconnecting all aspects of the human being – mind, body and spirit (breath).

Yoga to Me

Yoga, to me, is a doorway inward
To
Unravel the habits, patterns and conditioning that had/have my body twisted in knots and tension
To
Relinquish me from the relentless rant of my monkey mind
To
Find an Incredible Inner Peace I had no idea existed
To
Discover the incredible healing power of my breath
To
Cultivate and Practice Self-Acceptance, Self-Love and Non-Judgment of Myself and All Others

Yoga, to me, is so MUCH more than the physical practice
It is the gateway to Self-Discovery, Healing, and Wholeness
Yes, it strengthens and tones my muscles, increases my flexibility and joint mobility
Yes, it releases my stress, brings me into the present moment and recharges my batteries

There is more though . . .

Yoga teaches and reminds me that I am NOT my thoughts, I am NOT my past experiences AND I am NOT what my mind/ego would like me to believe
Yoga reminds me Society does not dictate what I wear, what I do or what I should look like . . .

YOGA INSTILLS IN ME THAT I AM PERFECT JUST THE WAY I AM 🙂

Testimonials

What People Are Saying

Somehow Jeanette always seems to know EXACTLY what I need out of my practice (whether it’s flow, yin, restorative, kundalini, etc). She is well versed in many styles of yoga practice and meditation. Each time I finish a session, I find myself commenting ’that was the BEST!”, and then say the same thing after the next class – lol. Week after week, Jeanette leads us in an experience that is grounding, peaceful and healing, and I leave classes feeling calm, renewed and recharged.”

“I came to Jeanette many years ago when my life was in constant turmoil.  Through Jeanette’s amazing ability to relate to people, relax them, and bring spiritual blessings to them, in very meaningful ways through the yoga experience; I was able to understand my world better and my place in it.  I gained confidence and peacefulness in ways I did not know were possible. So thank you Jeanette, you have been the calm within the storm!”
