    Class Description:

    Stretch: Essential Stretch: This Yoga based stretch class is excellent for gaining flexibility and general body awareness. The class is conducted in a calm meditative atmosphere, which is created by the dynamic yet relaxing effects of breath awareness. Students are encouraged to turn their attention inward while concentrating on a comprehensive series of exercises. A strong emphasis is placed on lengthening the hip flexors and expanding the spine so as to promote healthy alignment.
