Aerial Yoga, also referred to as Anti-gravity yoga is a calming, effective and fulfilling combination of Aerial Arts and traditional yoga. A typical class combines elements of a traditional yoga practice, such as breathing, stretching and mindful movement, with Aerial Yoga adaptations of mat yoga poses. Along with bending, twisting, reaching, gripping, flipping, swinging and hanging, while suspended in an aerial hammock. Non-gravity yoga offers the same wonderful benefits of mat yoga; such as lengthening of the muscles and connective tissues and increased flexibility, while also building both core and upper body strength. Group Aerial Yoga classes are offered for various levels to meet yogis at any stage of their Aerial Yoga journey, from true beginners to advanced practitioners.

Pranayama is one of the many methods that we use to elicit deep relaxation and quiet, giving us the opportunity to recover and heal from stress. The practice reveals and refines the details of our energetic patterns, as it compliments our Asana practice, which reveals our physical habits and patterns, while strengthening our physical body. Pranayama also compliments our meditation practice, which keeps us connected to ourselves and helps us to cultivate inner awareness. Char incorporates Pranayama into her group classes, meditation sessions and private sessions. She also offers Pranayama workshops.

Meditation is training for the brain and provides strength, clarity and stability of the mind. It increases our ability to focus our thoughts, and mindfully wakes us up to what's going on in the present moment. A consistent meditation practice has been proven to reward practitioners with a host of scientifically supported benefits. This class consists of progressing through several ancient tibetan buddhist meditation practices, such as mindfulness meditation and contemplative practices with a secular approach. This is a great class to assist you with establishing and maintaining a formal meditation practice. Char also incorporates many of these ancient practices into her group yoga classes. Group formal meditation classes and privates sessions also available. Attend a class, or contact to schedule.



Also referred to as Vibrational Sound, or Sound Baths is a form of Sound Healing, used as one of many holistic approaches to balancing the whole body. These oscillations in energy stimulate the spinal cord and sends waves through the nervous system, cells, tissues and organs; while simultaneously balancing the subtle energy body, which contains the chakras and aura field. The beautiful tones produced by the singing bowls create a heightened state of consciousness, due to their effects on the interneuronal connections. Invoking a deep state of relaxation, as the observer is guided into a mindful state very similar to meditating. Thus, making singing bowls the perfect and quintessential aid to any meditation practice. In this relaxed, balanced and serene state induced by vibration, the mind guides the consciousness on an inner journey, giving the listener the opportunity to see themselves and the world around them from a refreshed, peaceful and enlightened perspective.

Derived from two Sanskrit words, ‘yoga’ meaning union, or one pointed awareness and ‘nidra’ meaning sleep. Also known as “The Sleep of the Yogi” Since Yoga Nidra and Sleep are closely intertwined. Yoga Nidra is a meditative, regenerative practice that offers similar benefits as those resulting from sleep, which helps our wounds to heal, improves memory, boosts the immune system, manages pain, and lowers stress. When practicing Yoga Nidra, the body relaxes, while the mind stays awake and one-pointed as it is in meditation. Read more...

Taoist yoga embodies the elements and rhythm of nature in this dynamic and regenerative practice; combining a synergistic blend of Taoist breathing, gentle yoga stretching and flowing martial arts movements. Designed to awaken the body's energy pathways, nurture the joints, and center the mind. As a branch of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), this ancient healing art has been practiced for thousands of years as a way to keep the body's life force energy (Qi) circulating and flowing. Encouraging a heightened state of awareness of one's own internal energy, which helps to facilitate health, happiness, and inner peace; leaving the practitioner feeling tranquil and revitalized.



CORE-Rective Yoga is a signature program created by Char Willingham that combines the ancient yoga knowledge of asana with modern movement science to help depattern the body and mind. The importance of this depatternization of movement is to reduce chances of injury both on and off the mat. The CORE in this program is not referring to your abdominal muscles, which we do happen to target occasionally in this class, but CORE as in the central and most important part of you. The innate part of yourself that we work to uncover in this practice. The corrective part of this class is a combination of yoga asana, movements and techniques that help release the myofascia, lubricate the joints, revive connective tissue, improve strength, increase flexibility, release the mind and restore peace, balance and calm. Open to all levels from beginners to advanced
practitioners. Though not for the "faint-hearted." Come get out of your comfort zone, inspire and be inspired and leave feeling like you just did the most amazing thing for your body, mind and YOU!
