Thursday evenings from
6:15-7:15 pm
with Oana Lansman

Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body.
Each week we will practice a combination of concentration and mindfulness meditation techniques in conjunction with a few restorative yoga postures in order to relax and restore our minds, bodies and souls. Contemporary research shows how a consistent meditation practice yields long-term benefits, noting a multitude of positive effects on brain and immune function among meditators.

At the same time, lower blood pressure, improved blood circulation, improved heart rate, reduced stress and anxiety, lower blood cortisol levels – are just a few short-term documented benefits for the nervous system.

Yet it’s worth noting that the purpose of meditation is not to focus on achieving benefits. To put it as an Eastern philosopher may say, the goal of meditation is no goal. It’s simply to be present. Just be.

Let’s try that together.

This class is suitable for beginners. Ages 12 and up.

Mondays 3:45 – 4:45

Yin Yoga with Jean Johnson
Yin Yoga helps to increase flexibility by strengthening the joints,
ligaments and fascia. We will be using breath to slow the mind
down and gentle movement to help the body surrender into longer
held asanas. This is a relaxing slow paced class with all asanas taking
place on the floor (no standing asanas). It is perfect for beginners
as well as the intermediate or advanced yogi who wants to
increase their flexibility or just let go of their week.

Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha classes focus on correctly aligning the body to improve general posture, breathing and circulation. Hatha is ideal for beginners and those with physical limitations.


Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.


A form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body.


Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic system of practicing asanas (poses). Yoga postures flow in a logical sequence. Each position complements those that precede and follow. This practice focuses on the synchronization of breath & the continuous flow of movement. Vinyasa is a strong practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. This class can be strenuous; may be appropriate for beginners.
