What is a session class?
Many classes at the Yoga Path are taught in “sessions”. This is like a semester of school. The format allows for a continuity of instruction, so poses and practices can be introduced, developed, and refined over a period of time as with most learning. So students enroll to attend a weekly class. (Some choose to come more often.) In the event a student is unable to attend their regular weekly class, making up that class time during the session is recommended and encouraged.
All noontime “Chai” classes are
$10 for 1 class\
$36 for 4 class punch card \
$64 for 8 class punch card
Punch cards expire 60 days after purchase

*iRest® Yoga Nidra: Yoga Nidra is an ancient process of self-inquiry and education. iRest® Yoga Nidra is an evidence-based transformative method to meditation developed by Richard Miller over the past 30 years. It meets a participant at their particular life phase and offers a way to access one’s true nature with psychological, physical and spiritual healing and well-being. It is a method that respects a person’s age, culture, religious and philosophical orientation, occupation and mental and physical health.

As you gain more freedom and stability in your body and mind, tension and pain decrease, and you feel more at ease.

This class is for those who are new to yoga, those experiencing tension and pain, and for those who want to deepen their awareness. Class size is small and registration is by session only (no drop-ins) to allow for the building of skills.
