Join yoga instructor Mary Beth Johnson for a slow-to-moderate-paced yoga class as you nurture your relationship between mind, body and breath. Each class will build upon the next, deepening your understanding of basic postures, breathwork and linking movement with breath. Prior yoga experience and familiarity with basic poses is recommended. Modifications will be provided allowing students to choose a more beginning or more advanced practice according to their needs. Bring a yoga mat (if you have one) and wear comfortable clothing. Props and additional mats will be provided.
