Dru Yoga
Dru Yoga is a gentle, meditative practice which connects to the heart and helps release energy blockages created by anger, fear, and grief. Drawing inspiration from nature,

Dru Yoga's flowing movements, mudras (hand positions), affirmations, and visualizations promote serenity, compassion, joy, and healing. Beginners are welcome!
Yin-Dance
 
Vinyasa (Flow) Yoga
Vinyasa (flow) yoga can be an invigorating, exhilarating, and fun way of doing yoga. In this workshop we will start with a floor warming up sequence and end with some seated poses, followed by a restful savasana. The standing sequences will allow us to focus on moving through postures with grace, slowly flowing from one to another, without holding any given posture for any length of time. It is a great class for level-2 level-3 students.
Yoga through Flows
Exploring the Chakras
From a yogic perspective, life is energy. Chakras are energy centers of vital life force (prana). Come learn more about yourself from the incredible viewpoint of your energy body.

We will visit each of the 7 major chakras through imagery, physical postures, and breathing practices, and learn how to bring them into balance

Heart-Centered Meditation (HCM)
Heart Centered Meditation is a very simple approach to sensing the energy of our heart and helping us move from the intellect of the mind to the wisdom of the heart. Through our practice, our connection to ourselves strengthens. It then becomes easier to stay connected to ourselves while interacting with other people and the challenges in our everyday life. We become more adept at living in the present moment.
Drop ins welcome.

Athena Flegas has been practicing HCM with her teacher Mary White since 1998 and teaching HCM since 2005.
