Our classes are taught by a talented group of teachers who bring their different methodologies to teaching yoga, giving
everyone a well-rounded and enjoyable learning experience. We all share the same desire to teach with concentration on breath and inward focus, in a welcoming and non-competitive environment, so that all students may gain the benefits from their individual practice.
Medically and traditionally based yoga therapy for the restoration of movement, management of pain, reduction of stress,
and bringing the body back into balance for ALL AGES. We are a multidisciplinary team of practitioners dedicated to whole-body wellness using empirically supported approaches. We specialize in working with medical diagnoses such ad Huntington's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, Stroke, ADHD, brain injury, TBI, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, cancer/chemotherapy related problems, back pain, psychogenic disorders, neuropathy, and other related disorders.
Yoga Classes are held at "Thrive, the Healing Center". They are taught in a gentle and accepting atmosphere, and emphasis
is placed on linking breath and movement. We listen and honor our bodies by doing only what we are able to do on any given day. Upon leaving class, we feel calmer, more at peace with ourselves, and revitalized! It is a truly wonderful experience! We offer special 6 week sessionsfor Larger Bodies, pregnant women, Cancer patients and teen age girls. Please call for these times. The first class is free, and subsequent classes are only $10. Class times are 7 pm Monday evening, 9am Tuesday morning and 11:00 am Friday morning (this Friday class is beneficial to all, but is especially geared toward women who experience chronic pain - helping them to find relief). Hoping that you will try a class, and feel how good it feels to nurture yourself! PS- the Thrive website is www.thrivehealing.org

Yoga classes are held in a medical gym that is part of a Physical Therapy office. Many physical therapy clients are
encouraged to try the yoga classes, though they are open to the public, as well. Our yoga style is geared toward the population who was or may be seeing a physical therapist. We work with a therapeutic style of hatha yoga to reduce pain, restore movement, increase balance, and reduce stress.

Let's return to our Truth, together, the Sacred Light within each body wherein lies the endless possibilities of health, healing, and liberation from our suffering or self-limiting patterns, beliefs, and cycles. The Ancient Wisdom Traditions from Hawai'i, Yoga, Ayurveda, and Chinese Medicine are holistic ways of tapping into the endless possibilities and innate capabilities of your Truth, Light & Love.
