Dharma Gentle Yoga ~ Gentle and Restorative
Enjoy a meditative, healing, restorative Dharma Gentle Yoga asana sequence with stretching and deep guided relaxation. The pace of the class is slow and gentle. No experience required, but individuals need to be able to get up and down from the mat.
I very much enjoy sharing my practice and teaching this beautiful sequence in which we move conscientiously and slowly with the breath. The entire practice is a meditation. It is my go to practice when I want to relax and rejuvenate. Whether you are new to Yoga, recovering from injury or illness or an experienced yogi, you will benefit from this practice.*
