Adaptive Gentle Yoga was born out of a need for something different, something for those of us who don’t fit into the traditional model of yoga. Those of us who need a more supportive and therapeutic movement practice. Now you can join our Adaptive Gentle Yoga classes right from the privacy of your own home. No special equipment. No special clothing. No judgement. Just a safe and supportive environment to get you feeling better, moving better, and coping better with whatever life brings your way.
More information is provided below to learn about the various classes we are currently offering online via Zoom.

Adaptive Gentle Yoga
Create greater independence and life satisfaction within a safe and supportive community while loosening the hold of pain, suffering, loneliness, and fear. Adaptive Gentle Yoga is practiced at a slow pace to encourage healthy movement patterns, greater body awareness, and improved coordination and balance. Practices focus on mobility of the spine, stabilizing the core, and developing ease of movement in the joints with the intention of promoting greater balance, resiliency, and courage. With ample opportunity to strengthen your practice and progress at your own pace, this is not simply for beginners, instead it is a practice that grows with you.
All levels are welcome and no prior experience is needed. This practice is safe for those with limitations in mobility, strength, or balance due to injuries, aging, or simply being out of shape. Chairs, props, and cushions are optional to ensure a safe and confident experience.
Accessible Yoga is an interactive and playful version of Adaptive Gentle Yoga and therefore appropriate for a wide range of intellectual and physical abilities. Tapping into creativity and imagination, students are encouraged to participate in their own way and to develop their own version of what yoga feels like and looks like to them. Always keeping the practice light and fun, I believe we learn better when we’re laughing and smiling. It helps us connect to the heart dispelling fear, resentment, lack of self-worth, or feeling like happiness is out of reach. Through Accessible Yoga, we have learned that patience, repetition, compassion, and encouragement go a long way toward self-development and transformation. Together we create greater independence and life satisfaction with the practices of Adaptive Gentle Yoga.
Core & Restore Yoga
While staying true to our style of Adaptive Gentle Yoga, this class will focus on strengthening the core with the intention of developing greater stability throughout the entire body. A stable core is necessary for developing and preserving ease of movement, mobility, and balance. This practice includes a series of strengthening exercises interspersed with restorative yoga postures to soothe the body and mind. The entire class is done on the floor. All levels are welcome.
All-Levels Flow Yoga
This moderately paced class builds on the knowledge gained in beginner yoga classes, some yoga experience suggested but not required. This class will introduce principles of body alignment and awareness of the breath in basic asanas with options for more challenging modifications. Gain a deeper understanding of your own body and heart!
Sadhana Flow Yoga
“Sadhana” means spiritual practice. In this class, Yoga is defined as wholeness – “the state of missing nothing.” This hour-long, flow-style practice includes elements of Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of devotion), transformative heat, options for all levels, and restorative postures and meditation.
