Women’s Yoga classes with Amy Harris Women’s Yoga is soft and intuitive. It guides us through gentle yet powerful movements that help us soften and center. Classes are combined with healing touch, meditation and poetry to nourish both body and spirit. We focus on feminine, circular movements as we breathe and ease into our core. We anchor our yoga in our wombs and start our movements with a sense of groundedness and center. This is a practice that draws inspiration from yoga, dance and ancient female knowledge to create something truly nourishing. Every class is a little different. Sometimes we share a detoxifying drink, sometimes we receive a bit of massage or healing touch, and sometimes we let poetry and mantras guide our meditation deeper.
