Flow and Restore
The perfect balance. Breath. Movement. Relaxation. A joyful vinyasa flow with attention to breath to warm and tone the body with traditional yoga poses followed by calming, therapeutic restorative poses to soften the body, mind and open the heart.
A slower paced yet challenging all levels class. The class is moderately paced to cultivate strength, flexibility, and balance within a gentle, continuous sequence of postures. This slow yet powerful class is intentionally structured for students to go deeper and experience the nuances of the mind and body as they mindfully explore the subtleties of each pose through sustained holds and movement. A deep sequence of poses will focus the mind, calm the nervous system and open the body.
Breathe, relax and connect to your body with compassion and kindness through each movement. Learn that slowing down and paying attention is powerful medicine and the heart of yoga. Find mindfulness in motion leaving you rejuvenated and relaxed.
Learn the basics with a smile…and then learn them again and again and again. This class is for the first time yogi and the experienced yogi. No judgement. No expectation. Just you, your body and breath moving slowly, gently and mindfully. You will never regret it.
Relax and Restore
Just be. A powerful, gentle and simple practice using bolsters, blocks and supported postures to bring the body back to balance. Focus on your breath and guided visualizations to harmonize the mind, body and heart.

Katie enjoys all forms of yoga and her heart was drawn to the deep healing of restorative yoga as a way to cope and find resilience with the many challenges that life can bring. By supporting the body with props in simple, yet deeply therapeutic poses, linked with slow, mindful breathing, Katie found that by being still, she could truly experience the true essence of healing and heart opening.
Katie inspires her students to awaken and reconnect daily to their bodies through gentle, mindful movement that encourages physical, mental and emotional well-being. She empowers students to cultivate mindful awareness that restores balance and healing on and off the mat. With advanced degrees in psychology and conflict resolution and her passion for restorative yoga, Katie hopes to encourage a journey back to the heart of what truly matters to each individual through this ancient practice of connecting body, mind and breath. Katie feels grateful every day that it is her job to lead others towards their unique path of health and happiness.
