Yoga

ecce yoga promotes physical and mental wellness through the practice of yoga, an ancient yet accessible method of bringing calm and connection to our lives, promoting both physical and mental well-being.

Vinyasa yoga, a system of linking breath with movement, cleanses and strengthens the body as well as calms the mind, creating a deeper level of concentration and greater self-awareness.

Gentle/restorative yoga allows us to relax and connect more deeply by practicing gentle sequences that renew the body and spirit and by doing supported postures that enable us to restore.

Prenatal yoga introduces movement, breath awareness, relaxation and meditation into the pregnancy and birth journey. It also helps prepare women for labor, delivery and early motherhood.

Postpartum yoga give moms an opportunity to connect, learn and find balance through asana (postures), food guidelines, safe abdominal strengthening and thoughtful discussion.

Song Circle and Film Nights bring together our community of like-minded practitioners in a unique and inspiring way.

Yin/Yang, Mysore and  Mindfulness Meditation are offered as well!
