Maura's classes are breath focused and challenging, encouraging a deepening of the physical and spiritual sides of the practice but also inviting critical thinking about how to show up in the world more empowered and engaged. Maura is also known for helping students hold "the tension of opposites", the charms and challenges of life, and living into the "both/and" of our experiences.
These free classes are being offered in direct response to the current state of a world and the uncertain times we are living in, to support both self-care and community care - to help you get grounded, regulate and nourish the nervous system and process your experience. Maura's classes draw from both her yoga and non-yoga trauma-informed trainings, incorporating specific movement and breath techniques that will help you feel more oriented, centered and present. Donations welcome to Yoga Home. Class is appropriate for every body; 45 minutes followed by optional community check-in. sign up for class

Great for all levels of students, even beginners. register for class
This weekly offering with Maura Manzo gives students the opportunity to move into more advanced yoga poses as well as learn more in depth yoga philosophy. Each month will be themed around a specific classification of poses and partnered with pranayama exercises and points of reflection from yogic philosophy. Maura will teach this class “workshop-style”, starting with a fluid warm up and then breaking down the poses in a more complete way with ample time to ask questions. This series will be a balance of hard-work and playfulness, as well as an opportunity to build confidence in approaching something new and challenging.
Students should have a strong foundation in their physical practice and body awareness - this is not a beginner-friendly class. It is also recommended that students have basic props available - 2 blocks and a strap.. full details and registration (required)
