The Yoga Collective is an online yoga community located in Anchorage, AK. We hold classes online live via Zoom and anytime via YouTube.

Online Gentle Yoga with Kristiann is for students who appreciate a gentle approach to a full spectrum of yoga poses. All poses are approached slowly, with accommodations and versions utilizing props. A typical class includes more familiar seated, standing and supine poses in addition to something more, such as arm balances, inversions and backbends. More challenging poses are gently explored, and made accessible by the use of props. Familiar poses are held a bit longer, bringing yoga deeper within. Breathwork, anatomy and yoga philosophy are explored on occasion. Time and space is provided for strengthening the mind-body connection in this gentle class. This class is free and donations are graciously accepted.
