Our vision with yoga is to make it accessible to all who feel the pull towards the practice. Our intent is for wellness to be financially available to all and for all to be welcomed despite any personal circumstance or hardship. Because of this, we offer a sliding scale payment system. For a sliding scale to work without burdening our practitioners or each other, it relies on the principles of truthfulness, not taking what is not freely given, and generosity. We understand this price may vary each session permitting you to give a little less and sometimes a lot more.

Class sizes are limited. Please sign up at least 30 minutes prior to secure your spot in class.
Restorative yoga is a type of yoga known for its relaxing, calming and healing effect. As well as being popular with students who are recovering from illness or injury, restorative yoga is considered an ideal balance to hectic and stressful modern lifestyles. This practice calms the mind and nervous system, enabling you to turn inward and focus on the breath. In this practice the muscles relax deeply through the practice of stillness and gentle movements. Props are used extensively to support the body so you can hold poses for longer periods of time, allowing your muscles to relax deeply. Socks and sweatshirt recommended since you will not be warming up the body the way you would be in an active class.

YOGA FOR SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT
once a month through the Riverside Rape Crisis Center
This class and space allows for a unique path of healing. Yoga allows for survivors to regain a sense of comfort and ease within ones body, mind and spirit. The program allows for you to become reacquainted with your body and allows and facilitates a powerful transformation with the relationship with the body. In the midst of healing from a traumatic event, and often for years and decades after, the body can feel like an enemy. We may feel like we are being held hostage in our own bodies and our bodies no longer feel like our own. Through yoga, we get our bodies back and in time the body is no longer frozen, no longer a container of fear and tension, but in fact a powerful, highly intelligent and highly sensitive tool to move us both through and beyond the memory of the deepest pain. Each class offers survivors a safe space facilitated by empowerment based language to gain greater awareness around strength, stability, boundaries, assertiveness and mindfulness.
