1:1/Yoga Therapy Sessions with Chris Mastin
Yoga therapy is the application of yoga techniques to help those facing health challenges manage their condition, reduce symptoms, restore balance, increase vitality, and improve well-being. Through the application of physical postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation, yoga therapy provides a holistic approach to the healing process. Yoga therapy integrates the healing of the body with the healing of the mind and emotions and can be a wonderful complement to other wellness therapies and classes.

Even if you're not dealing with a chronic condition or recovery from surgery or injury, a one-on-one yoga session can help you learn more about your body and its movement patterns and how to move safely into and out of postures. Private sessions provide a great opportunity to enhance your yoga practice while allowing you to focus on yourself and your needs, and can be an excellent way to ensure you get the most out of community classes or your home practice.

Stretch and Strengthen Yoga 
This class provides a balance of stretching and strengthening for the body. It focuses on deep breathing and longer holding times for postures to build energy and cultivate the mind's capacity to witness. This class is appropriate for experienced students without injuries or who have the awareness to protect themselves if dealing with an injury.

Beginner's Tai Chi
Beautiful Tai Chi is the synthesis of hard and soft, strength and flexibility, water overcoming stone. To achieve fluency the practitioner needs to build strength, increase flexibility, and internalize their awareness of the flow of the movements.

Tai Chi
Tai chi is often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion." There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems.
