Mindful Yoga combines creative sequencing with Delphine's love of classical yoga. You’ll find restorative moments and snapshots of sculpting intensity.

About the instructor
Delphine has been teaching yoga since 2002 throughout the country. She focuses on the deliberate deconstruction of each pose to make a mindful and lively practice available to students of all levels. You will be invited to go deeper into your individual practice along with consistent gentle reminders to follow the breath and the bodies’ natural flow and the truth of a healing path. In her class, you will find words of encouragement and you will notice her true passion for moving beyond entanglement, obstacles and for finding that delicate balance between effort and effortlessness by listening deeply to one's overarching truth. Delphine’s Yoga isn’t about pushing or striving, it is an experience that encourages the process of empowering individuals by increasing self-awareness and learning how to work within one’s own strengths and limitations.
