Yoga Basics

An introductory class for students who are new to Yoga that prepares them for the next level classes. Emphasis is given to the basic alignment of the standing poses for beginners but great for more experienced students that want to further develop basic poses. Instructor moves at a slightly slower pace so students can fully understand the foundations of the practice.


Vinyasa

This class will teach students a vigorous flow style of yoga that synchronizes breath with movement. It will offer a balance of strength, flexibility, and endurance to challenge the fitness enthusiast. The instructor will guide you towards a specific posture while incorporating breath work (pranayama) and yogic philosophy.


Heated Vinyasa 1

Our Vinyasa 1 flow done in a room heated to 85-89 degrees to create a rejuvenating, detoxifying and de-stressing experience.


Gentle Flow + Prenatal

This class is designed for those who prefer a less vigorous flow. It includes gentle stretches and breath work as well as basic postures, simple movement and accessible strengthening exercises. With a slower pace, there is time to explore and familiarize yourself with the postures and learn to experience the sensations. This class is ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle or joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue as well as for pregnant women. This class is appropriate for all levels.


Heated Vinyasa 2

This class is a continuation for Vinyasa 1. The emphasis of this course is on refining and building endurance in standing poses. This class is suitable for students who have practiced other styles of yoga, but it is not suitable for those who have never studied yoga before. Room temperature is 85-95 degrees.


Heated Vinyasa 3 + Advanced Vinyasa

In this class, students continue with refinements to poses studied in Vinyasa 2 and introduces full arm balance (handstand), headstand, and forearm balance. Additional back bend poses are also included. Regular yoga practice outside of class is strongly encouraged. Room temperature is 85-95 degrees.


Ashtanga Yoga

This style of yoga is based on six series of asanas which increase in difficulty, allowing students to work at their own pace. In class, you'll be led nonstop through one or more of the series. You'll be encouraged to breathe as you move from pose to pose. Be prepared to sweat. 


Teen Yoga

A yoga practice especially for youth ages 13 to 17 years to support them in developing self-awareness, emotional resilience, healthy body image and compassion through asanas, breathing practices, meditation, community building, and more. We want to make a significant difference in the lives of tweens and teens by supporting them as they navigate through these years by providing the tools for coping with stress and peer pressure in a fun, non-competitive, inclusive environment.


Chair Yoga

This class is specifically created for seniors and those with physical limitations, to help them increase muscle tone, balance (which is particularly important), strength, aid in sleep and improve mood. We use chairs as props to add in balance and stability. Through pranayama (breathing exercises), lung capacity is increased as well. Attending this class regularly also establishes a sense of community and friendship with teachers and fellow students. These types of social connections have been shown to be surprisingly important for maintaining health and well-being as we age. Be sure to speak to your doctor before trying yoga, especially if you suffer from any chronic conditions or are very inactive.


Yin Yoga

This is a quiet, meditative yoga practice. It is slow-paced and poses are held for five minutes or longer. Even though it is passive, yin yoga can be quite challenging due to the long holds, particularly if your body is not used to it. The purpose is to apply moderate stress to the connective tissue - the tendons, fascia and ligaments - with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.


Heated Hatha

This class is a set series of postures and breathing exercises, performed in a room heated to temperatures in the high 90’s to low 100’s. These postures are designed to warm and stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons in the order in which they should be stretched. It systematically moves fresh, oxygenated blood to one hundred percent of your body, to each organ and fiber, restoring all systems to healthy working order.


Yoga Wall Therapeutics

Yoga Walls are one of the best yoga props out there. By doing a series of supported moves on the yoga walls with the assistance of straps, bars and slings, you can get into a deeper practice and even include it as a form of physical therapy into your yoga routine.  From beginner to advanced, yoga walls are for everyone that is looking to get something more out of their physical yoga practice.


Restorative Yoga

This style of yoga usually involves only four to six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, supported relaxing inversions and gentle back bends. Restorative yoga aids in the balancing of the nervous system, reducing stress, ailments, pain and helping the body relax and be calm.
