Union, wellness, balance, confidence, peacefulness, alignment, focus, flow; there not one consummate word that describes yoga, nor the experience of yoga at Studio A. Through the breath, Yoga aims to calm, strengthen and purify the physical body, direct stress and anxiety to intention of the mind and invite peace and tranquility deep within our spirit. Dynamic movement or longer holds and unique sequencing work in harmony with awareness of the breath to release effort from the body allow a return to center, a clear perspective and invites pause in the now.

At Studio A, clients will feel challenged, but never overwhelmed and are encouraged to engage in a variety of classes designed to effort and return, lengthen and strengthen, to calm and correct, or to energize and revive.

B.K.S Iyengar said, “All yoga is restorative.” This class is for letting go. Of everything. Restorative yoga uses the assistance of props to help students through long, effortless hold times, moves gently through calming sequences, and passively approaches and maintains transitions the state of each shape. This low impact class will restore balance and peace through subtle forms without muscular effort. It is suitable for all skill levels, and can be practiced exclusively or in tandem with a more rigorous yoga or Pilates practice. The aim of this class is deep relaxation, and is akin to a day at the spa for your mind and body alike.
