Our team has many decades of combined experience, and offer a wide variety of classes, Signature Yoga Fusion to Hatha Yoga and Movingness.
By cultivating awareness and connection within our own bodies, we can begin to create meaningful change in the world around us.

Somatic Movement vs. Yoga
Somatic Movement at its core is about creating new ways of moving through life.

Together, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, guided by the wisdom that comes from our inner
