Vena teaches flow yoga classes as well as offering specialized yoga series. During each class, a variety of poses, or asanas, are held and flowed through to stretch, strengthen, and improve balance, stamina, and proprioception. Modifications are always offered for those who have physical or health limitations or for those who would prefer to challenge themselves.
Private sessions are the perfect solution for a couple of reasons. First, for those who have never attended a class and are a little intimidated; usually after a session or two most people feel confident enough to attend classes. Secondly for individuals who have specific goals and/or limitations. Vena has worked with athletes, soldiers, the elderly, and those with injuries or issues which are more easily addressed one on one than in a class setting. Vena has use of a couple of studios, one in Lacey and one in Tumwater. She will also come to you – to your office, home, or other venue of your choosing.
