Classes begin with opening yoga, then on to a fun and energetic gymnastics obstacle course incorporating techniques for sensory integration, balance and strength in the body and mind, and then finish with closing yoga, relaxation and meditation. The arc of the class is very powerful. Students often experience deep relaxation, self-regulation and peace by the end of class.
