Liberation Yoga for All

July 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until January 1, 2020

Liberation Yoga is a holistic practice of Yoga that offers an alternative for anyone hoping to explore the relationship between body, mind, and spirit.  Our gentle 90-minute class is accessible to all people with a desire to practice yoga in a more conscious way, supported by teachers and a community who understand how the journey into presence can bring both challenge and benefit. We will often take the slower path, following a series of postures that engage the body and mind energetically from the ground up.

All are welcomed to this donation-based class. No one is one turned away for lack of funds.



James Metzger completed his YTT-200 in classical hatha yoga at Mahadevi Ashram on the shores of Lake Atitlan in 2015. What was initially a journey to bolster his personal practice, James realized that the unique perspective shared during his training was different from the general body-focused yoga in the west. A yoga class with James takes a slower, gentler pace, designed as a series of postures to help students balance the energetic components at work within body and mind, and how this awareness supports the relationship of self to our larger world.
James credits his decade-long journey as a springboard diver, along with his several years of dance and performance, as the key blessings anchoring the relationship between his body, mind and spirit. Beyond yoga, James works as a teacher/counselor for at-risk youth, writes and helps create original theater, and enjoys a good sewing project. He is also an active member in the 12-step community.
