Vinyasa Yoga

Asanas are taught to assist clients in learning how to coordinate movement with the breath. Students are encouraged to move at their own paces using their own breathing rhythms. Classes are designed to encourage a continuous flow in & out of postures with coordinated breath control and are based on the levels and experience of the group. Clients will be offered suggestions during class where necessary and may ask their instructor about specific needs at the end of class.

Community Yoga

Community Yoga is an open level yoga class that is donation based. Everyone is invited to begin, enhance a pre-existing, or progress their Yoga practice. Bring your questions! While these classes can be full, our instructors will assist where specific needs are necessary within the flow of the class.

Beginners Yoga

The Beginners yoga practice focuses on alignment, breath work and the fundamentals of Vinyasa Yoga. Students can expect to learn to manage their body in space as they move in and out of the different postures with breath sequence management. This is a great class for beginners and those who like to keep it basic.

Early Bird

Yoga is a great way to start your workday. A yoga practice during the morning hours reinforces our focus and determination in addition to stimulating your digestive metabolism. Our Early Bird classes are appropriate for all student levels who have some experience with yoga.

Vinyasa Yin

Students are taken through a light flow followed by release with the use of props. The first half of class is a breath led flow designed to get the body energized. The last half of class uses props to assist in the release of deep muscle and fascia tissue. The class aims to help us tune in, re-coordinate both the mind and body while setting a peaceful tone for the rest of your day or evening.

Yin Yoga

"In a city where we’re all constantly on the move, yin yoga will challenge you to stay. It will help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by holding passive stretching postures for upwards of 5 minutes. By sinking into poses that we are used to holding for 10, 20, or maybe 30 seconds, we access deeper layers of fascia, allowing us to stretch the connective tissue around joints. It is not only a delicious physical practice, but it is an opportunity to notice how your body and mind react. There is a strong connection between yin yoga and the fight or flight response, and by pushing through our habits to resist or run, we sink deeper, release control (relaxing muscles, quieting the mind), and learn to breathe through the blocks, the parts where your mind or ego insists you can’t do it, where fear arises, where old stories come up. By passing through this “junk” you stretch beyond what you thought possible and find freedom in letting go. Yin is a great compliment to the more traditional hatha vinyasa practice, also known as yang yoga. Just as the yin yang symbol represents, balance is found by incorporating a little of each in the other."
