This gentle yoga class is open to everyone. Beginners will be able to try a new practice while more experienced practitioners can expect to receive additional instruction to help build energy and awareness in the body and mind.

For the past year Lisa Uihlein has been leading this class, and students appreciate her individual attention and her holding of our yoga space. Lisa is the owner/operator of Turning Point Yoga in Madison, and we're thrilled to be working with her.

Classes begin with deep breathing to cultivate awareness of the breath, and with warm-up movements to encourage the flexibility of the body. Following this, Lisa will guide students through the sequence of postures that have been practiced for thousands of years and are known to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body.
