In Gina’s class you will experience liberation for the body, mind, and soul and leave the mat radiating from the inside out!

Asana Flow + Pranayama

James draws upon the variety of modalities he has studied over the past 20 years of practicing yoga. His teachers have instilled in him the sacredness of the practice. He has been taught to uphold the traditional philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga through the conditioning of mind and body. He believes the use of physical postures, breathing and concentration practices in addition to cleansing techniques, help us to cultivate the balanced state we need to pursue our spiritual endeavors. He emphasizes mindfulness and exploration in a light-hearted way throughout class. His classes incorporate breath-enhanced movement to elicit the stabilization and cultivation of our vital life force, prana. Static and more complex postures are presented to encourage strength and endurance of body and mind. Variations and modifications are offered to assist everyone in finding an appropriate boundary with which they can work with safely and effectively. Time for breathing techniques and stillness is integrated to enhance and observe the effect so the more gross practices. This can lead to a more complete and fulfilling experience for the student.
