Certified Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is one of the most ancient of healing arts.  It is an incredibly effective tool for your total health and wellness.  Here are some of the basic benefits of massage therapy:

  • Improved Circulation
  • Increased flexibility
  • Decreased pain and/or inflammation
  • Balanced blood pressure (over time)
  • Greater sense of wellbeing
  • Increased self awareness

There are literally thousands of styles of massage applications to meet your body’s specific needs.

Massage Therapy sessions are tailored to your needs and recommendations will be made by the therapist based on your health history and therapy goals (if applicable).  Please ensure you communicate openly with your therapist for the best experience.

Why are there two sets of prices?  All of our therapists are state certified however, some therapists have more years of experience and continuing education so we feel it is important to acknowledge this accomplishment.  Every therapist has their own style and expertise and we encourage you to try them all!

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

We have simplified our class descriptions!  You will find the class titles are simply “beginner gentle”, “intermediate”, etc.  So you will know which class is right for your experience level.  Please call if you have questions.
Gentle Yoga 
This class is designed for the beginner yoga client.  We will focus on poses and modifications of those poses, and connect with the breath and learn basic breathing techniques.  This class is great for those new to their journey or self exploration through yoga and for those that are seeking a more gentle form of movement.
Beginners Yoga 
Focusing on alignment in basic yoga poses, learning modifications of those poses as well as breathing and meditation techniques.  This class helps students build a safe and comfortable practice.
Intermediate Yoga 
This class is for students who have had some prior experience of yoga.  Refinement of the basics, the practice of sun salutations and introduction to revolved standing poses, inversions and back bends will be explored.  Using props when necessary, this class may move at a faster pace.
Mixed Level Yoga
A vinyasa style yoga focused on breathing, feeling, listening to our bodies and letting go of judgment, competition and expectations.  Modifications offered for poses making the class enjoyable for beginners to those with different levels of experience.

Yin/Yang Yoga (Beginner’s / All levels)

Yin/Yang Yoga combines yin yoga with a gentle flow practice. The yin portion of our practice focuses on a release of connective tissues and cultivation of observance, breath, and meditation as we surrender into postures for longer periods of time and open ourselves to the release of deeply held, stagnant energy. We then move into a short, gentle flow that allows us to integrate this openness and awareness into a sense of steadiness and alignment in guided vinyasa practice. Suitable for all levels.

Restorative Yoga (all levels)
This class is all about restoring the body & mind through gentle nurturing & lots of restorative adjustments. Using props to help the body to release tension and allow muscle to soften, this class is suited for anyone looking to de-stress and nurture themselves. The class will end in a guided Yoga Nidra (deep yogic sleep) practice to allow for the benefits of deep restoration.
Yin Yoga (all levels)
In Yin yoga classes the movement of Chi (energy) through the meridian lines is emphasized within the postures, and with longer hold times the body is able to stretch into the deeper connective tissue.  Breath work helps clear energy to move the body toward balance.
