Gentle yoga is free of competition, judgments, comparison, and no frustration or agitation in holding/doing a pose. A slow process to become aware, slow down, and just be. This class is recommended for those experiencing stress, recovering from injury or illness, and anyone seeking a gentle class to unwind, relax and renew.
