 PHILOSOPHY


In order to enter a state of grace, or even visit it for a moment, we must begin to pay attention to what is—to connect. Whether the present moment is as we (or others) think it “should” be is not a concern in yoga. Yoga relieves us from that judgement. It requires us to express from a clearer version of ourselves; to gain perspective. Do not underestimate the power of this clarity; to promote and attract compassion, joy, strength, and a reflective intelligence.

Sonja Rzepski instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa (2)
  • Vinyasa is characterized by flowing poses and sequences that are linked to the breath. This class is diverse and sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy and in general is a vigorous, more athletic approach to yoga.

  • Yin/Yang (1/2)
  • This class begins with a fiery Yang(Vinyasa) practice to build heat in the body. This heat prepares the body to then melt deeply into 30 minutes of Yin yoga (restorative, deep release).

  • Alignment Basics
  • This therapeutic class is designed to develop ease, healthy alignment, and body awareness. Props and mindful adjustments in posture are used to aid body awareness and focus. It’s yoga without the “om.”
