Welcome to Yoga Moves 

Yoga Moves is dedicated to the teachings of Hatha Yoga as a way of life, a way of being your most authentic self. Yoga Moves is the passion child of Denise Glueck, who founded Yoga Moves in 2000. The inspiration of the name came from Eric Schiffmann’s book “Moving into Stillness”. Yoga is about moving into stillness. 

Class size is small to ensure more personal guidance from our experienced teachers. With our therapeutic approach, emphasizing self-care and self-healing, you will gradually begin to shed old negative patterns responsible for stress and disease, and begin to awaken physically, mentally, and spiritually.

We teach alignment based therapeutic yoga, where each student is guided to a deep understanding of the mechanics of the body and movement patterns of energy.  It is our purpose to guide the student towards correct posture and biomechanics of movement. When the body is aligned the energy or Prana is aligned. When the Prana is aligned, the consciousness is aligned. We offer our reverence and honor to B.K.S Iyengar, and the many teachers who have informed our teaching over the years. These include Karin Stephan, Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, Eric Schiffmann and so many more.  

 With the aid of props and gentle encouragement we will take each student, regardless of experience, to a deeper understanding of themselves, Body Mind and Spirit.

Aerial Yoga Classes  On Hold till Further notice  Aerial Yoga classes combine traditional Yoga methodology and the alignment principles of Iyengar Yoga with weightlessness for flexibility, strength and deep relaxation. The Yoga Swing serves as a prop, which makes it possible for all levels to experience fun and ease in a yoga practice. Classes are designed to modify the postures using the support of the swing. As with the use of any yoga prop, you will find that you can hold and balance in the asana longer to fully absorb the benefits of the yoga. Increase joint mobility, decompress the vertebrae of the spine, open the hips, remove weight from the knees, increase blood flow to the brain, mellow the nervous system and all while inspiring the kid inside of you to learn and explore new things, awakening creativity and confidence . Blend aerial acrobatics and dance with the art of asana to soar your yoga practice into new dimensions. 

Aerial classes are for all levels. We welcome beginners and more seasoned students and will modify the class accordingly. Please inform instructor of any medical conditions. The WLL (Working Load Limit) of our rigging is 1000lbs. We do recommend a body weight of under 250lbs to attend class, as many poses would be hard to achieve. Please feel free to call with any questions.   

You should not practice inversions if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, eye diseases such as glaucoma, or hardware from a spinal fusion.  Such people need to progress very slowly, starting at very light levels of inversion.  Please consult your doctor about it first.

Hatha Yoga 

Denise is now offering a Friday morning in person class for fully vaccinated students. The class size is limited.  Zoom classes have proved to be a wonderful experience for students, to be able to practice at home with live interaction with teacher.  Classes are non-competitive and the student is encouraged experience the pose from the inside out. Practicing this way will calm the thoughts by bringing attention out of the head and into the body. Instructions are careful and precise,  so that the student can understand unhealthy patterns and learn correct body mechanics and functional movement in their life. Denise believes yoga poses are for the purpose of re education of the body and mind for a fuller richer functional life. Meditation and breathing are always emphasized and taught in every class, even Aerial. Students are always encouraged to work at their own level. Please inform the teacher of any health concerns. Classes are one and a half hours in order to take time to enjoy the full benefit of Hatha Yoga.
