Yoga at 5 Lights focuses on healing and optimizing the body and mind. Our classes are unique in the way we blend in-depth knowledge of the body/mind/spirit, and the healing process with the ancient wisdom of yoga. 

All of our classes are small, giving you the opportunity to get specific feedback and guidance from our teachers.



Class Descriptions

Yin Wise – 75 minute

Yin Wise  focuses on releasing tension held deep in the connective tissue. By holding poses (asanas) for 3 to 10 minutes each, the body has time to ease into the pose and gently push the edge. Yin Wise is a class created to balance the nervous system and educate the mind on the body's nature wisdom. Blending western anatomy, body energetics, and yogic philosophy, students will walk away feeling rejuvenated, educated, and detoxified from stress. Yin Wise will challenge you to go inward and discover the true gems of yoga. 
 

Slow Flow - 60 minute

Slow Flow at 5 Lights enlivens time and space in the body through methodical yoga movements. This class gives students the experience of cleansing the physical, mental and emotional bodies by use of ones’ attention and intention to consciously create and move through form, asana. This sparks the healing powers of the body's innate wisdom within each student to unfold. The mind naturally begins to quite and drop into the body as we utilize the breathe as a guide, meditation through movement. 

 

Restorative Yoga - 90 minute

Restorative yoga brings the natural healing power of your body and mind to the forefront of your experience.   During this class we will go through only a few poses, holding each for 5 to 10 minutes.  For each asana we will use props such as blankets, blocks, straps, or bolsters to allow the body can feel completely supported in each posture.  This gentle form of yoga can regulate blood pressure, strengthen the immune system, promote healthy digestion, emotional regulation, and heal the body from stress.  When our bodies sense the support, stagnant muscle holding and energy can be released and detoxified.

Going Deeper into Yoga Basics - 90 minute

In this 90 minute workshop Amber will walk you through various approaches, techniques and cues to deepen your practice of basic yoga postures.  We will be exploring the energetics of each pose and how to bring brilliance into one's practice through the body, mind and spirit.  Whether you're new to yoga or wanting to explore the subtleties of the poses this class is designed to help meet you where you're at in your practice.  

Please wear flexible clothes. You can bring your own mat, or use one of ours. All other props are provided.

All classes are appropriate for all levels

Meet the Teachers

Meet Melissa

It is my passion to blend Eastern philosophies of yoga and wellness with Western anatomy and the neurobiology of stress within the physical body. This deep curiosity for holistic wellness led me to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2015 through Passion Yoga School in Costa Rica. Inspired by the depth of clinical research, I have continued to expand my knowledge and am certified in yin yoga through Soma Yin, and restorative yoga, through Synergy School. In 2017 I earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University. Over the last year, I have incorporated therapeutic interventions for the body’s biological stress process in my work with survivors of intimate partner violence. Restoring balance to nervous system, releasing and processing stress, reducing trauma symptoms, and improving mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.  I look forward to meeting you on your mat!
