Gretchen has been practicing yoga for over a decade.  She became certified in 2017 knowing she needed to take her practice to the next level.  Her classes are centered around core work and tapping into the inexhaustible resources that reside within you.  Her approach is a little different than most yogi’s because she does push and challenge you.  She goes hard and as a result, you find your inner power, your voice, and a place on the mat that evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature.   Come check her out, we know that you will love her!

Tuesdays; Vinyasa Flow 7:15-8:15 PM

LEE MOWERY

The classes Lee teaches are focused on restorative strength and alignment of the body. He believes an entire practice is generated from the core and the breath, as well as, the tuck of the tailbone--this is where the Impossible is found. Next, comes the press of the fingers and the toes, from here a solid physical practice can be formed, one you will continue to come back day in and day out. His classes will consist of utilizing a strong, rhythmic breath to hold poses longer and you will learn how to build a strong core to pelvic floor connection. All practitioners are welcome on the floor. His aim is to inspire and motivate you to find your own devotional practice that you hold for Life.

Lee's Classes: 

Saturdays; Power Hour 8:30-9:30 AM
