    Yoga + Meditation Sessions with James @ The Dojo

    Feb 20 @ 8:30 am – 12:15 pm

    Come out to The Dojo to take part in soul-cleansing yoga + meditation sessions with James Hineman!

    Wednesdays include 3 types of classes across 3 sessions:

    Move Breathe Yin + Meditation (8:30-9:30)
    Class begins with simple exercises integrating breath and movement, followed by a series of extended stretches. In this class, we will practice “letting go,” allowing tight, overused muscles to finally relax. With time, you can realize your own body’s potential flexibility. Class ends with a 5-10 minute guided meditation.

    Gentle Hatha + Meditation (10-11)
    Build strength and increase flexibility with accessible yoga poses, emphasizing safe alignment and proper breathing technique.  Class ends with a 5-10 guided meditation.

    Restorative + Meditation (11:30-12:15)
    This class is all about relaxation. Using simple props and cushions, we allow gravity to do most of the work. The 45-minute time frame is designed to let this be a welcome respite in your work day, without intense stretching or strengthening. Maybe you worked out yesterday and you are sore, but you still want to practice? This would be the perfect way to recover. Class ends with a 5-10 minute guided meditation.
