Poses range from moderate to difficult and modifications are offered to appeal to beginner and advanced yoga practitioners alike.

Relaxed yoga classes focus on releasing tension and lengthening muscles through gentle movement and deep breathing. Students will leave class feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Annette Bray -

Annette BrayExploring the release of resistance that is mirrored in the physical and spiritual aspects of our being is a joyful life experience. An experience that Annette has journeyed through and found wisdom and gratitude in the process. She began sharing her love of movement in 1996 when she attained her degree in kinesiology. And her many years as an avid outdoor enthusiast furthered this passion for helping others find joy in engaging the physical body. Her professional philosophy has always been one of holding great value for the quality of movement and the interconnectedness of all parts of the human form. Personal life experience brought her to the place of seeking another tier of wisdom: the interweaving of the physical and spiritual body. Her study of yoga began in 2009 with Jeanie Manchester and the alignment focused study of Anusara, which was nothing less than transformative. From 18 years of personal and professional experience grew the idea to create MoYo Movement which brings together the biomechanical principles of mobility and the mindful discipline of yoga. From this perspective Annette helps her clients improve the way they move to sustain joyful lifelong activity: the pursuit of which she believes to be vital to a connected human experience.  Visit for more details.
