Mom and baby yoga provides an opportunity to regain core strength and flexibility, to practice baby massage, and to meet other moms and babies (2 to 8 months)! Fun, informal, the babies are the 'bosses' in this class! This fall there will be Monday classes (taught by Kate) and Tuesday classes (taught by Clearlight). The next session of classes starts September 9, 2013.
Mom and active baby yoga provides an opportunity for mamas and moving babies to enjoy yoga together (7 to 16 months). Moms have an opportunity to practice yoga for themselves, as well as to explore movement together with active baby through music and song. Moms follow the babies' natural rhythms, exploring stretching and strengthening yoga for both mama and baby, all the while encouraging baby to move about the space freely. Moms and babies benefit from movement, being present and a wonderful community of friends! The next session of classes starts September 12, 2013.

Clearlight's teaching of the physical practice of postures balances both an emphasis on core stability and safe alignment with the importance of not only liberating deeply held tensions, but of discovering how the practice of yoga can bring a greater sense of wholeness and balance to every aspect of one's life. Autumn yoga classes begin on September 16, 2013.
Yoga Nidra is a body-centered meditation practiced in a comfortable lying down position. Participants are guided into the deepest levels of relaxation and self-inquiry while remaining alert and aware.
Yoga Nidra can be practiced for many reasons: to deeply relax and release stress; to promote the healing of body-mind; and to rediscover a greater sense of wholeness and balance that is naturally ours.
