Instructor: Nicole Gauthier-Schatz

Time: Noon – 1:00 pm

When: Tuesdays (Mindful Flow Yoga) / Thursdays (Renew & Recharge Yoga)

Mindful Flow Yoga – The Tuesday class is open to everyone. Beginners are encouraged to attend a few of the Thursday Renew and Recharge classes in preparation. The movements are linked with breath in a meditative-like motion to loosen the joints, strengthen the musculature, and develop a strong core and a supple body. Mindful Flow also increases circulation and decongests the internal organs. We conclude with deep relaxation or meditation.

Renew & Recharge Yoga – The Thursday class is suitable for beginners and all levels. This class is a slower-paced and delves deeper into the anatomy and alignment-positioning aspect of the Yoga poses. Emphasis is placed on mindfulness and suggestions for short stress-relieving practices to bring into your workplace. The purpose of which is to cultivate resiliency, which is our ability to bounce back quickly from the effects of stress. Class ends with a restorative pose and deep relaxation.
