"I absolutely love going to Jennifer's yoga classes! They are small, dynamic, and light-hearted. Because the classes are small, it really allows Jennifer to give you great one on one guidance. I love her Gentle Yoga for relieving mid week work stress, and for some really great deep stretching that makes you feel rejuvenated. But I also really love her Hatha classes that are more energetic. Jennifer has a knack for knowing exactly what each class/student needs. The environment that Jennifer creates allows you to feel comfortable, peaceful and (my favorite) the freedom to giggle when you fall out of your pose. Jennifer has a great calming and loving presence and I am always looking forward to seeing her and taking her classes."  —Cara T.

 


Qi Gong 

Private and Semi-private instruction
Experience a different approach to health! Instructor Venus Sabay guides you through gentle movements and coordinated breath, cultivating your Qi— or life force energy. Qi Gong exercises are simple, repetitive, and build your energy instead of depleting it. A core series of fifteen simple yet powerful movements will leave you feeling centered, calm, and self aware. Classes end with seated meditation.

This class is for all fitness levels: for those unable to stand, Qi Gong can be performed in seated posture. Health benefits are so enormous it is easier to list what Qi Gong doesn't cover! Bring your family and friends—  the bigger the group, the greater the benefits.
