Gentle & Restorative Yoga (Studio)

Give yourself the gift and the downtime needed to quiet the mind, calm the nervous system and find a sense of peace. Class is a mix of gentle yoga combined with restorative yoga which will allow you to experience a rejuvenating and restful practice. Warm up muscles, build strength, increase bone health and gain flexibility while focusing on specific stretches which release tight shoulders and neck as well as hips and hamstrings.  Our restorative yoga practice will aid in nurturing a calm, restful mind and a deeply relaxed body. Several supportive props will be used in each restorative yoga posture to invite ease, stillness and release of held tension. This yoga class can provide a really beautiful way to integrate some peace into a busy day.

Suitable for all, including those new to yoga as well as experienced practitioners interested in a gentle and meditative yoga practice.

Class is mainly floor-based with ocassional standing poses. Receive personalized, hands-on adjustments and verbal ques and modifications customized to your body, your needs and level of practice.

"My husband and I look forward to our Steinberg classes and private sessions with Karyn. She is an attentive and enthusiastic yoga teacher. She knows how to read bodies and guide us to make adjustments so that we are working just at our edge so we can be simultaneously challenged and comfortable. That’s quite a feat!"
