General
Janis draws from a variety of styles to teach Hatha Yoga. She emphasizes breath, relaxation, balance, flexibility and strength. The class is limited in size in order to provide individualized yoga instruction to increase your body awareness, flexibility, and strength. The yoga sessions are designed to make accommodations for the individual. You will learn to integrate yoga into your daily activities, improve your alignment and reduce pain and cranky joints.

No experience is required for Hatha, Seniors or Restorative Yoga. The classes are an hour long and end in meditation. The classes fill quickly so email or call to so you can be worked into a class. You can arrange to try a class ahead of time. No drop-ins.


Gentle Hatha Yoga focuses particular attention to flexibility in the shoulders, neck, and hips, the common stress points and inflexibility areas. You will gain Balance, Concentration, Energy, Grace, Flexibility, and Strength.
