A wide variety of Yoga styles and levels are offered to suit the novice through advanced levels. Specialty classes include back care, restorative and yoga for cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers.

Back Care Yoga
A strong healthy back is essential to your well-being and vitality. Back Care Yoga is designed to strengthen your back and help reduce discomfort and stress.
Level - Participants must be able to get to the ground and stand up without assistance.
This class incorporates asanas (poses) into a slow, meditative and calm practice. Use gentle movements to welcome soft openings and mind/body awareness. Appropriate for all levels of fitness.
Hatha concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. This style uses poses (asanas), breathing (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound body and clear mind. Hatha postures promote balance, flexibility, a supple back, and increased muscular strength.
This class offers kids, grades 3-5, an activity that provides strength and flexibility exercises as well as relaxation techniques. Bring your own mat. Registration required. Learn more
Relax, recharge and renew. Props are used to support the body so it can hold “asanas” (poses) longer and with little or no physical effort. These poses are sequenced and designed to enhance the restorative and rejuvenating functions of the body and mind. Appropriate for all levels of fitness.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
A dynamic system of practicing “asanas” (poses). This practice focuses on the synchronization of breath and the continuous flow of movement. Vinyasa is a strong practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 21 • 5:30 – 7:00 PM
Please join Mishi Myhre and harpist Anela Lauren for an evening of Yin Yoga and live music at the PJCC. Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice where postures are held for several minutes. Yin Yoga strengthens bones, hydrates fascia, and nourishes joints. The addition of live harp music takes you into a sweet, deep place, a journey within your own being. This is an all level class and appropriate for all levels
Anela Lauren is not your average harpist. She is a classically trained pianist who discovered the joys of improvisation. Anela has adapted a wide range of music to the harp; particularly contemporary folk and rock ballads, with a nod to classical, traditional, Celtic and Hawaiian tunes.
A prolific yogi, Mishi has practiced yoga for 27 years. She teaches weekly Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and Yin Yoga Therapy classes, and has led a dozen yoga teacher trainings. Mishi also writes a popular yoga blog, Half Moon Bae.
