General SCC Yoga Overview:
SCC Yoga is inspired by the Kripalu Yoga approach--allowing you to choose the right level of physical intensity for your body and honoring that every body is different each day and different during each stage of life. The focus of SCC Yoga is that of creating body awareness and presence, mindfully connecting breath with movement and developing self-compassion, all of which lead to greater vitality.
Students can expect to experience breath awareness, warm-ups, yoga postures, followed by a brief relaxation and meditation. SCC Yoga is a practice that revitalizes the body, calms the mind and deepens self-awareness. SCC Yoga is accessible to everyone—all bodies, all ages, all abilities.
