All Levels Yoga

Vinyasa sequences (moving through several poses with breath) will challenge strength, balance, and focus while moving between poses deliberately. Class may also incorporate stillness, longer holds, and wall work and exploration of alignment through use of props. Variations will be offered to enable students to customize the practice for their individual needs. Newer and more experienced practitioners welcome.

Gentle Core & Restore

The first half of this practice incorporates postures to balance core and pelvic muscles and gentle vinyasa appropriate for beginners, postpartum, or anyone looking for a slower, more meditative flow practice. The second half of practice incorporated restorative postures, using props to achieve deep relaxation. Variations will be offered to enable students to customize the practice for their individual needs. Newer and more experienced practitioners welcome.

Trapeze work also includes functional pulling and grip strength often missing in a mat-based yoga practice to create a full-body fitness routine. Read more.

Prenatal yoga was a weekly treat for me during my pregnancy.  After class I always felt stronger and more centered – better prepared for childbirth and parenthood.  Before the prenatal course, I didn't have much interest in yoga, but Jen's course made me a believer. I look forward to continuing my yoga practice in the future."

"I want to thank Breathing Space for the amazing prenatal yoga class on Thursday nights.  It was very therapeutic and provided a lot of support during my pregnancy. "
