Recuperative Yoga
enhances your natural healing powers.

Recuperative Yoga recognizes that not every pose works well for every body and therefore modifies poses and actions to suit each person's needs.

Our physical limitations may be a result of injury or illness, poor posture in a work environment, or overuse in athletic performance. Regardless of the reason, Recuperative Yoga can help to resolve body issues.

Recuperative Yoga places the spotlight on muscle functions and body mechanics, and utilizes personalized exercises and yoga postures to restore a balance of strength and flexibility.   It is an innovative method to enhance and optimize body performance for all levels.

Recuperative yoga group classes are ongoing each week.
