Join Ginny and Kristina for Yoga at the N4Cs. They offer a wide range of yoga styles, which give students the opportunity to explore their yoga practice and its amazing benefits. Yoga helps students with flexibility, balance, strength, and overall energy. Yoga is also very beneficial for those suffering from stress, anxiety, and depression, allowing students to breathe, relax, and let go. Students have the opportunity to enjoy Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Slow Flow Yoga, and Vinyasa Intermediate/Advanced Yoga. Classes are open to everyone whether they have years of experience or none at all. Come and see what Yoga can do for you!

We look forward to sharing this wonderful practice with you.

G Mazzei head shotGinny has been teaching Hatha Yoga to diverse populations since 1994. She enjoys sharing an awareness-based, insight-driven class that encourages students to learn about themselves through movement and to safely and wisely expand their capabilities.  Increased strength, stamina, and flexibility are just the beginning benefits of a yoga journey.  with continued practice, students report increased calmness, steadier emotions and more ease in flowing with the ups and downs of life in general.

Kristina has been practicing yoga for more than 9 years and in 2013 completed a 200 hour RYT teacher training at Twin Cities Yoga Collective, centered on a foundation of Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga styles.  Ashtanga focuses on the use of poses to end the distractions of the mind, while Vinyasa works to unite the movement of the body to the breath.  Her classes place an emphasis on connecting breath to movement, improving balance and flexibility and increasing strength while learning to relax and let go.
