In this class, yoga asana postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. The slower pace allows focus on breathing techniques and movement control. Healing Hatha Yoga is a beautiful and intentional moving meditation. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. Complete relaxation and mind/body balance are the destination, as we open to the healing nature of Hatha Yoga. Class recommended for all levels; beginners very welcome!

Please bring your own yoga mat, blanket, and/or meditation cushion. Folding chairs are available.

Class Update: Yoga Classes will be cancelled on February 2nd, 6th, 7th, 9th, 13th, and 14th. We appreciate your understanding, and look forward to seeing you at future yoga classes!

Following the chaos of the pandemic and graduating college early, Madison returned to the practice she fell in love with as a child in the hopes of finding stability and creating joy. In studying yoga, she has found extensive healing, exploration of the Self, and forged new and lasting connections. Madison teaches a supportive Hatha yoga that encourages people to move the body in creative and unique ways to help connect with oneself and others and explore the heart. She ultimately hopes to pass on the same healing and joy that yoga has brought her.
