YOGA CLASSES WITH AMY:

Yoga for Anxiety & Depression (Wednesdays 12:30pm-1:30pm): This class supports emotional balance through grounding, releasing, mindful movement, breath work, and emphasis on present-moment awareness.

Grief Yoga (Fridays 8:00am-9:00am): Grief yoga blends yoga, movement, and sound to release the pain of grief and loss to reconnect to love and grace. Each class is compromised of four components including awareness, expression, connection, and surrender. Emotional experiences are encouraged and welcomed as part of the healing process. Grief yoga isn't so much about physical flexibility as it is emotional liberation.
