Mission Statement

“To inspire, enable and empower people of all ages and abilities to move toward greater wellness and balance at all levels of their being through yoga and its therapeutic applications.”

Learn yoga or develop your practice in inclusive classes with a focus on safe, mindful movement that works for you – your body, your needs. Registered Yoga Teacher Brigitte Marsden’s emphasis on mindful body awareness is calming and builds focus while also helping students listen to their bodies and practice yoga safely. Brigitte applies trauma-informed principles and practices in all of the yoga and mindfulness classes that she offers.

Hatha Vinyasa (Yang) Yoga, the more familiar “active” form of yoga, builds strength and flexibility in muscles and tendons, while also strengthening bones. Practicing mindfully allows us to listen to our body and be guided by our body’s wisdom.

You may be less familiar with Yin Yoga, which targets the connective tissue (fascia) and joints mainly in the lower body. The long-held, static poses are designed to counteract stiffness, separate adhesions and increase mobility. See Yin Yoga Factsheet for more details.

Studies have shown both Yin and Yang Yoga can bring numerous other health and wellness benefits too, including reduced blood pressure and stress levels, improved hormonal and emotional balance, greater focus, and an increased sense of well-being.
