Teen Snack Yack 'n Yoga
There is no better time to be introduced to yoga than during adolescence. Emily would be honored to offer some time for the local students to join me in some tea and a healthy after school snack while we discuss life and yoga. If a group of teens were interested in making this happen, the time spent together would look include about 30 minutes of down time and a simple yoga practice together, (exploring all aspects of asana, pranayama, and even mudras) An understanding of the tools of yoga can be most empowering to our young adults as they muscle through the teen years. At this time, the class is not meeting due to lack of interest. Please contact me if you or your teen are interested, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Finally, the practice concludes with a series of restorative poses and guided meditation. You are sure to float out the door with the newfound space and energy you will feel.

Vinyasa style yoga combines a series of flowing postures with rhythmic breathing for an intense body-mind workout. Vinyasa, which means breathing and movement, is for internal cleansing. Each movement is accompanied by one breath. The vinyasa practice flows through warm ups, salutations, standing series, seated asana, inversions, and there's always time for ample restorative sivasana (final relaxation). The class is appropriate for ALL ranges of yoga experience.
