We offer a variety of classes to meet your needs, and we encourage you to find options that inspire, challenge, and feel good to you. If you need any assistance, please feel free to ask. Our instructors encourage you to listen to your inner teacher above all and to have fun! Since we believe that individuals of all ages can benefit from yoga, we allow older children (ages 12 & up) to join our adult classes, if parents feel it is suitable.
A slightly more challenging practice, with the intention to build strength in both mind and body. This is your opportunity to play around with more advanced poses and movements to gain more insight into your body and to let go of fears, limitations, and expectations. We still encourage slow and mindful movements during this practice to safely explore and connect with our bodies. Each student creates his/her own practice and chooses options that feel good, so yogis of all levels are welcome. This is a fun and energetic class for anyone who is interested in expanding his/her comfort zone.
Rather than trying to fit the body into all of the traditional yoga poses, this class is an exploration of functional movement. We will work on breath awareness, joint range of motion, balance, strength, and flexibility of body & mind. Each class will offer time for movement, meditation, breathing techniques (pranayama), and may include some restorative yoga postures. This class is well-suited to those who want to move at a slower pace, those who want to gain more body
Gentle Yoga: Inner Power Hour
You can never be any more perfect than you are right here, in this very moment. This is your hour to relax and rejuvenate and remember your worth through this gentle and calming class. This is a great class to meet new, like-minded friends in. Each class will have warm herbal tea awaiting you paired with vegan chocolate or a fresh fruit.

Prenatal & Postnatal Strength Training
This is a special class for any woman who is pregnant and recovering from pregnancy/birth and wants to learn ways to safely exercise during these phases of life. Exercise is strongly encouraged during pregnancy and after and brings significant benefits to both mom and baby. In this class we will use concepts of yoga and strength training, using hand weights, resistance bands, and steps, to create strong and healthy bodies. This group meets on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 3:30-4:30pm. Participants learn exercises that they can safely do at home in between sessions.
We offer mothers a quiet place to turn their focus inward and bond with their child, while strengthening their bodies and utilizing their breath to prepare for birth. Research shows significant benefits of participating prenatal yoga, both for mom and baby, including; increased comfort, decrease in premature births, and improved health of both mom and baby. These classes offer women time to be comfortable with the changes in their bodies and bond with other expectant mothers. This class is suitable for women who have prior yoga experience, as well as beginners. Women can participate as early or as late in pregnancy as desired, depending on comfort level. Nora also offers private prenatal sessions to couples and periodic group classes for both mom and partner.
This class begins with a gentle warm-up to get the spine moving. The rest of the poses practiced are passive (many lying down) & fully supported with props, such as blocks, blankets, and bolsters. The aim is to help facilitate release of habitually held tension and encourage deep bodily relaxation through focus on the breath. This is an ideal class for anyone who feels overwhelmed with stress, insomnia, or chronic pain. It’s also a wonderful balance to a more active yoga practice. Open to all levels.
Slow Flow Vinyasa
Connect movement to breath as you work to balance stability & flexibility in the body in this more meditative version of a flow class. Some of the poses in this class will be held longer in order to find focus, maintain a consistent breathing practice, and build body awareness. Some yoga experience recommended.
Yoga After Loss
This is a class for any woman who has experienced the loss of a child during pregnancy or after birth. Together, we create a safe space to move and heal our minds, bodies, and hearts. Yoga has long been a tool to encourage healing, and this class is specifically tailored for woman in all parts of their healing journey. We use breathing excerices, movements, yoga poses, and meditation to connect with ourselves, release emotions, and find peace in the midst of grief. This group offers connection and community, which are vital to the healing process. We meet every 3rd Sunday of each month from 2:00-3:00pm.
This is a class for those who are new to yoga or for those who want to gain a better sense of their habitual movement patterns. We will delve into some fundamental yoga poses (asanas) with a balanced perspective on the importance of strength and flexibility. We’ll begin exploring breathing techniques, and we’ll practice a variety of movement patterns to sense where the body is in space. In doing so, we hope to take time to enjoy what your body can do: move, focus, and breathe—all with an attitude of curiosity and playfulness!
This alignment focused class embodies the ideas and principles of B.K.S. Iyengar. This class offers a deeper look into the positioning of the body in each posture, with longer holds and a strong focus on the breath. Honing in one’s attention into the seemingly insignificant elements of each posture helps us to understand each part of the body and how it functions together as a whole. Dive into postures with confidence and security with the help of your instructor, props, and adjustments.
