Our Vinyasa Flow classes are dynamic classes that synchronize movement & breath in a continuous flow of poses, usually beginning with Sun Salutations. They are energetic, creative & lots of fun! Vinyasa classes are suitable for students with some yoga experience. Variations & modifications are offered throughout the class to support students who are newer to yoga.
Our Basics of Yoga Classes break down the fundamentals and core poses found in our yoga classes. Taught at a slower pace with hands-on assists as needed. Great for those who are new to yoga or someone just getting back into yoga.
Sun Salutations, Foundation Standing Postures, Foundation Floor Postures and Twists, Backbends and Inversions may be taught.
This is a therapeutic yoga class of Yin yoga postures created to target myofascial tissues of the body (ligaments, joints and bones). This can be an edgy practice and may not be suitable for someone who is injured. Props may be used to support the body as it eases into to each pose. Poses are often held for several minutes. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go. The Yin practice includes powerful mental and emotional benefits as its practitioner becomes quiet, still & mindful of the present. Among its many benefits, this class helps improve numerous aspects of your life including feeling more relaxed & less distracted by fleeting thoughts, demonstrating an enhanced ability to have a deep sense of ease & grounding. Classes are concluded with a guided mediation easing you into a deeper state of relaxation. This is different from Restorative yoga.
Yin is NOT recommended for those who are pregnant.
Can't decide between a warming and strengthening vinyasa class or a deep stretchy yin class? This class has you covered! Vin/Yin is Thirty minutes of slow flow to warm the body and strengthen the muscles, followed by thirty minutes of deep yin stretches; long-held relaxed floor poses to stretch and stimulate the deep connective "yin" tissues of the body. It’s the perfect way to find balance in the body, mind, and spirit.
Our Gentle Yoga classes are light and creative, but slower paced and gentler than our Vinyasa classes. Postures are generally held for longer periods and the transitions between poses are a little slower. The gentler nature of this class is great for beginners but is also wonderful for intermediate and advanced students who feel like slowing it down and sinking that much deeper into their practice.
A mindfulness-based meditation practice suitable for all levels.
Soothe your soul with restorative yoga. This healing practice that tends to get overlooked in a world where "doing" is often valued far more than "being." In this practice of active relaxation, you can leave the distractions and stresses of daily life and devote much needed time to restoring your sense of well-being. You will be guided into gentle poses on the floor supported with blankets, bolsters, straps, or blocks. Poses are held for longer periods of time, with simple breathing techniques, to allow gravity to create release and opening in the body without the effort of "doing." Mild and gentle sensations in the body are common and are conducive for relieving muscle tension and stress. Add this constructive "down-time" to your practice, and amazing things may begin to happen in your body, mind, and spirit. Suitable for all levels (not suitable for pregnant women in their second or third trimester).
