Beginner- An introductory class for those with little or no yoga experience. Designed to make you feel completely comfortable in the yoga studio and introduce you to yoga postures and connection to your breath.
Vinyasa- Vinyasa means “movement synchronized with breath”. Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses linked through sun salutations that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling creating a dynamic flow and moving meditation.
Heated Flow- A vinyasa class where you synchronize breath with movement to awaken strength, flexibility and focus in a heated room. Approximate class temp ~ 78-85 degrees.
Hatha Open- This class is open to students of all levels. It will focus on alignment and breath awareness creating strength and flexibility. Hatha is often translated as "ha" meaning sun and "tha" meaning moon. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting the opposites within ourselves. The class will incorporate practices of asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), mudras (hand positions), mantras (chanting).
Restorative- A deeply relaxing practice of supported poses, guided relaxation, yogic breathing, and an extended savasana (final resting pose). Extended holds of grounded postures creates deep restorative work that improves range of motion, joint mobility and reduces pain. This meditative practice cultivates a necessary balance between body and mind while dissolving physical and mental tension. For any level student seeking to reduce the effects of stress.
Athletic Stretch- This class is geared towards cyclists, runners and anyone who needs extra time spent opening up the hips, hamstrings, quads and low back. The class will address some of the specific imbalances that often arise in the body when we engage in intense repetitive movements that occur in sports.
Ashtanga- A set and progressive sequence of standing and seated postures to bring strength, flexibility and endurance to the body. The practice is designed to purify the body through the breath and movement to help quiet the mind.
Open Heart, Open Hips- At the center of our body and the chakra system lies the heart. Opening the heart space helps counteract the many daily activities that cause us to lean forward. As we energetically open the heart, we give freedom to our light and love within. Opening the hips can help reduce back pain and also serve as a detox, allowing us to unlock and let go of pent up emotions.
"Tune Up" Yoga- This is a musically themed class where we draw inspiration from both music & lyrics. Each week we practice a different slow flow to a featured artist, band, genre, yogic theme or time period. The monthly playlists are posted at the studio. This class is suitable for ALL levels.
Yoga-lates-This class is designed to correct chronic posture distortion patterns such as Upper Cross Syndrome (tech neck) and Lower Cross Syndrome. These muscle imbalances are often the root cause of headaches and pain in the neck, shoulders, mid back, low back, hips and knees. The Pilates will be focused on strengthening the core and other inhibited muscles while the yoga will focus on releasing the tight over-facilitated muscles. All fitness levels welcome as each movement will have a modification for beginners and advancements for those who are ready for an additional challenge.
Chair Yoga- The class will use chairs and other props to ensure that the benefits of yoga are accessible to folks of varying degrees of strength, balance and flexibility. We will practice basic yoga poses while exploring the openness that comes with combining breath with movement.
Family Yoga-This class is for the family. We will playfully move through poses to build strength, confidence and to learn to relax together. Practicing as a family provides an opportunity for connection and togetherness. Ages 4yrs + Held on the 4th Sun of each month. Please sign up through the workshops/events page.
Kundalini- Kundalini Yoga consists of physical exercise, pranayama (breath work), mantra (chanting), mudra (hand positions), and mental focus or visualization, that make up a Kriya. A Kriya is a specific set of exercises that generate energy, organize that energy, and deliver you to a specific energetic state – particularly one of greater awareness. We will practice a Kriya that is appropriate for all, whether you are a beginner or very experienced. You cannot stay the same when you practice Kundalini yoga. Held on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Please sign up through the workshops/events page.
