Gentle Yoga Classes in Delaware 

Promote Healing in a Safe and Gentle Space With Yoga 

Improve your Mind-Body Connection With Gentle Yoga

Yoga is a therapeutic activity that can encourage healing for your body, spirit, and mind. Rather than focusing primarily on exercise, our gentle yoga classes are intended to help you promote healing, reduce stress, practice mindfulness, and release negative emotions through movement. 

You don’t need to be super fit to benefit from gentle yoga.  

Our gentle yoga courses are designed for adults with any health background or fitness level. While you will likely notice some improvements in your strength and flexibility, these yoga classes are not meant to by physically rigorous and focus on healing-oriented movement. Our instructor will work with any physical limitations you may have to ensure a safe, positive experience.  

Yoga integrates physical, intellectual, and spiritual healing. 

Yoga combines therapeutic healing movements with breath work to clear emotional blockages and help you explore the connection between your body and mind. This practice can ease you into exploring difficult emotions and letting go of negative thought patterns, while allowing you to feel more grounded in the moment and become more mindful in your day-to-day life.
