Classes

Don't be late...

Gentle
Class Description
New to Yoga? Been a while? Recovering from injury or surgery? This class is a great place to be. You will be guided through a series of asanas (physical postures). Slow transitions between asanas allow emphasis on alignment, pranayama (breath and subtle energy control) This class fosters mind-body integration and awareness in a  less fiery practice than most other classes.

This class may also offer pranayama (breathing techniques) and guided meditation.  Due to the slower pace of this class, you will have time to get to know your body in postures, and begin to train your mind and nervous system to recognize and appreciate an inner state of calm.

Many of our advanced Yogis know the value of taking this kind of class. All are welcome to slow down and enjoy the ride.

Slow Flow
Class Description
A combination of vinyasa and gentle yoga. Invite new peaceful and uplifting energy into your day. We will incorporate breath with slow meditative movements, combined with moments of stillness and deep stretches that include heart and hip openers.
This is a class designed to awaken the body, clear the mind, elevate your kundalini energy, release tension and trapped energy, ease pain, build strength, improve balance and flexibility.
Connect to your spirit and feel good in your body.

Ashtanga Vinyasacurrently not offered.
Class Description
Meet the Mother of all Vinyasa. This is the practice our studio was based on way back in 2001.

In Ashtanga there are 6 series. We will for now be focusing on Series 1, and possibly 2.

Like Vinyasa, Breath is the key , the engine that feeds this practice. This practice offers consistency, detoxification, flexibility and strength in an invigorating, orchestrated flow.

This is an all levels class and is expertly guided.

Those new to Yoga or to Ashtanga/Vinyasa may feel challenged at times-no worries; We allow you YOUR experience at YOUR level. Even the most advanced Yogis know that taking Child’s Pose is sometimes the perfect place to be.

Minimalist Vinyasa
Class Description
Less Chat, More Mat. Similar in pace and intensity to our regular Vinyasa but fewer alignment cues and less talking from the instructor. Groove deeper into into your inner practice. Postures and transitions may be called out(example: “Warrior One” or “Vinyasa”) but without verbal alignment and other details. You are invited to explore any advanced or pared down variations.

If you are new to Yoga, we recommend that you attend a minimum of 5 of our regular Vinyasa classes before coming to this class so you are somewhat familiar with the postures and your ever changing body. This class will likely feel more intense because your inner focus will be turned up but we know you can do it!

Vin to Yin
Class Description
This class is a fusion of strength and stillness. We begin with a gentle flow to get the blood flowing. Then we
wind down with a sweet Yin practice. Sustained, supported stretches promote suppleness of the connective tissues, joints, ligaments and tendons-promoting healing and quieting the mind.
Some meditation and pranayama may be included.

This is a class for those looking to grow their practice and expand their capacity to move with power,grace and integrity. Be prepared to work,play and relax.

All levels.

Yin
Class Description
Looking for a good stretch? Need to Relax? This class is the ultimate in Chillaxation. 

You will be lying down or reclined for most of the Yin postures. Sometimes you will be guided into some light muscle activation, but mostly all of this class is done as passively as possible. This allows access to the fascia(connective tissue) .

Holds on these stretches are sustained for anywhere from 3-7 minutes, using supports such as bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps as needed . Flexibility is NOT a requirement-just an open mind and a willingness to let go.

This class combines a deep, slow stretch of the connective tissues, with a focus on safe and comfortable alignment. Often in your first session, you will experience reduced tension in your muscles and joints-even a sense of space and freedom. Your mind will likely follow suit since that is how our nervous systems functions; It is like a win-win.

All levels.

Iyengar
Class Description
Iyengar yoga is known for its therapeutic aspects through attention to detail, alignment and use of props. BKS Iyengar pioneered an approach to classical yoga that is accessible to anyone who is seeking to improve their life by feeling better in their body, calmer in the mind. It focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body through the practice of asana.

Unlike some flow-based approaches where students are encouraged to independently “find their way” to the postures by imitating the teacher, an Iyengar Yoga class is precise, with misalignments and errors actively explained and corrected. Iyengar emphasizes precision and alignment” and prioritizes correct movement over quantity, i.e. moving a small amount in the right direction is preferred to moving more but in other directions. Postures are held steady to allow the muscles to relax and lengthen, and encourage awareness in the pose.

Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers are recognized worldwide for their profound understanding of the subject of yoga.
