The Yoga classes at Breakthrough Healing Arts aspires to bring a deeper experience of healing through gentle movements, slower pacing, longer holds, and restorative postures. This brings you to a perfect space of renewal, strengthening, and openness - allowing you to recover more fully from your more rigorous physical activities.
This class focuses on moving deeper into fundamental postures of yoga through proper alignment, breath work and slow conscious movement, bringing awareness to the whole self. It is especially beneficial for those recovering from injuries, or those who want to have a deeper experience of healing and strengthening while nurturing the body.
This class aims to strengthen the body by holding postures that promote balance, increase bone mass, and focused breathing. Postures are held for longer periods, helping the practitioner get to a surrendered meditative state, promoting openness.
This class focuses on healing and moving the attention inward. A mix of gentle hatha, yin, and restorative yoga, the practice includes pranayama (breathing exercises) for balance, renewal, and deep healing. Deep breathing, introspection and self-love are the key points of this meditative and nourishing practice.
Saturdays, 8:00am - Irene Radley
This class utilizes the Yoga of kindness to the self. In each session, the practitioner is nurtured into postures, using special props that allow the body to relax more freely and open up to each posture slowly. The principle of the form is that our natural state is the state of balance, strength, and flexibility. By allowing each posture to take shape, our natural state is restored.
Mondays and Wednesdays , 5:30pm - Megan White
In each session, for two months, poses designed to work specific muscle groups are done in order to help rehabilitate the areas of the body that may have been injured, to strengthen atrophied muscles, and increase blood flow to promote better healing through advanced breathwork techniques.
January/February - Large joints: hips, low back and shoulders
Tuesdays, 5:30pm - Irene Radley
Healing Flow is combines the warming technique of flow yoga (one breath, one movement) with the deep stretch of hatha for a more balanced practice.

This class is appropriate for all levels, beginners are especially welcome. Variations can be given for those who want a deeper and more advanced practice. Be prepared to leave feeling warm and flexible.

"However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse."
~Henry David Thoreau, Walden
