A typical yoga routine combines physical postures, called asanas, with breathing techniques and meditative practices. Goals often include stress reduction and physical fitness. Classes are led by experienced and accredited yoga instructors. Each class is one hour long; mats and props (as needed) are provided. Classes are suited to all students unless otherwise noted.
