Trinity Rose was introduced to yogic breath and asana at the age of 12 and it continues to be a central part of her life. Her teaching is deeply influenced by her study of Tai chi, Qi Gung, Feldenkrias, Ayurveda and her 13 year career as a professional massage therapist. Trinity says: "My yoga practice has been a wonderfully reliable source of wisdom and connection, a place where I find intimacy with my body, mind and emotions. Skillful yoga opens us to life, and gives us the grounding, stability, grace and skillfulness to engage it fully. It is my deep joy to share the richness I have found on the yogic path with others.” Join Trinity for a gentle yet dynamic practice focused on restoring vitality; RESTORE AND RENEW, Thursdays 530-7pm - appropriate for levels.
