This class offers a form of movement that is particularly well-suited for meditation.  You'll explore practices that will energize and strengthen you, help you release deep-seated tension and cultivate a sense of presence and well-being. The class is designed to be inclusive for all levels of yoga, from new to experienced. 

Class begins as 6:30 and ends at 7:20, giving you time to gently transition to the guided meditation with Jonathan at 7:30.

This class is offered freely so that no one is denied access to the practices. Your donation helps cover the cost of the room and supports the teacher.

meditation mindfulnessClasses focus on sitting and walking meditation, different aspects of the Buddha’s teachings, and how to bring the practice into everyday life. Classes generally include a guided meditation, a dharma talk and/or experiential exercise. While the classes complement one another, they are also structured as independent from each other – i.e., whatever class you are able to attend should be informative and useful in and of itself.
