Class Descriptions

BASICS

For healthy beginners and experienced students. A safe and supportive environment to establish or deepen your grasp of the yoga principles that apply to all of our other classes.

INTERMEDIATE

For students who want to take their practice to the next level from the Basics class. Includes moderately advanced poses to balance strength and freedom in body, mind and spirit. Grace, fluidity and joy grow from the inside out.

POWER FLOW

A challenging form which includes vinyasa (flowing) along with breath and bandhas (internal practices). Strengthens and balances all aspects of the physiology along with developing equanimity. Recommended for advanced students and strong beginners.

ALL LEVELS

For healthy beginners with optional modifications for more advanced students, this class blends flowing sun salutations with some held postures.

GENTLE YOGA

Appropriate for all students. Using slowly flowing movements and deep breathwork, the postures and the internal feelings beneath them yield insight into physical and emotional constrictions, and open the possibility for release.  If you’ve never done yoga before or if have any health concerns, this is a great class to begin with.

UNWIND YOGA

Appropriate for all students. A blend of Basics and Gentle; a great way to relax deeply and completely in gently held posture with the use of props.

PRE-NATAL

A gentle class focusing on aiding the adjustment of the body as the baby grows, as well as techniques to ease the strenuous process of labor. Includes yoga postures and breath work for each trimester.

RISE & SHINE

All levels morning flow. Vigorous sun salutations, asana, and pranayama to vitalize body and mind. Begin the day with this beautiful and ancient practice.

YIN YOGA

Using passive stretches, Yin yoga goes into the connective tissues to initiate change at deep levels. Mostly done on the floor, the postures release blocks and open up the energy channels to greater flow.
It’s gentle and suitable for all levels from beginner to experienced. Slowness induces deeper awareness, a great way to reconnect with your spirit within.
Do you want to increase or maintain your flexibility? Lubricate your joints? Do you want to challenge yourself to go deeper physically and emotionally? Are you ready to explore what lies beneath? Are you ready to go outside your comfort zone? Do you want to balance your already strong yang practice? Then Yin is for you.
