The majority of our classes are accessible to everyone, regardless of flexibility or level of fitness.  We offer a variety of classes so that people can explore different methods and achieve a more diverse knowledge of all the benefits yoga has to offer.

 

Vinyasa Flow Yoga:

Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized-movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic style of yoga that integrates rhythmic breath with conscious movement. Classes are vigorous, yet accessible, utilizing fluid transitions from pose to pose. Vinyasa flow increases strength and flexibility and relaxes the mind by releasing any blocked energy in the body.

All Levels - For beginners to advanced practitioners.  These classes are suited for everyone.  Both physically and mentally challenging, there is always something to benefit from these well-rounded classes.  Modifications are given for newer students, and challenging postures (asanas) are optional for experienced students.   

Level 1 - For students of all levels.  Physically challenging, yet with modifications suited for beginners.

Level 2 - Some knowledge of basic yoga poses and the sun salutations is recommended.  These classes have less instruction and are more physically challenging.  Modifications are always optional.

Level 3 - For students who’ve had experience in a Level 2 class and are ready for more advanced asanas and breath work.

 

HATHA YOGA:

Hatha Yoga is the physical practice of yoga using postures (asanas) and conscious breathing in combination with mental focus.  This practice helps to develop strength, flexibility, awareness, and a sense of well-being.  These classes are great for practitioners of all levels. 

 

Gentle Flow YOGA:

 

Gentle Flow Yoga is a less strenuous practice consisting of basic postures coinciding with the breath. Gentle Flow is ideal for anyone who enjoys a slower paced yoga class.  This class is suitable for everyone including beginners, seniors, women who are pregnant, practitioners recovering from injury, and anyone who desires a tranquil, meditative yoga flow.

 

Soma Sequence:

Soma is a Sanskrit term that derives from the root su, meaning to “energize, stimulate, swell, expand and grow.” The Soma Sequence is a strong and well-rounded practice that will move and stretch your body in all directions. The sequence includes sun salutations, standing and seated poses, backbends, forward bends and inversions.  The emphasis is on form and alignment to develop strength and stability within these postures.  All levels are welcome, however, the sequence can be physically intense, so it is recommended for those who are up for both a mental and physical challenge.

 

KUndalini Yoga:

The Kundalini is untapped energy (prana) at the base of the spine that can be drawn up through the body awakening all seven chakras.  This is achieved by working asana (pose) sequences in conjunction with a specific breathing technique which intensifies the poses.  These sequences (riyas) consist of rapid, repetitive movements done with a breath or holding a pose while breathing in a particular way.  

Kundalini goes beyond the physical performance of poses with its emphasis on breathing, meditation, and chanting.  The sequences can be very physically intense. This type of yoga appeals to those who are up for both a mental and physical challenge.

 

RESTORATIVE YOGA: 

Restorative yoga is a practice of deep relaxation, attained through a series of reclined and/or supported postures (asanas), held for longer periods of time.  This practice is very meditative and helps to restore the nervous system back into a state of balance.  Anyone at all levels is able to benefit from this class.

 

YIN YOGA:

Yin yoga is an asana practice designed to encourage strength, deep release, blood flow and prana into the deepest muscles, the organs, and the more plastic aspects of the body like the fascia and the joints, via holding each specific asana at one's personal edge for a designated period of time.  The yogi reaches a deeper, more transcendent level of relaxation, even entering yogic sleep, when shifts in these deep regions occur.  Yin is very conducive to deep spiritual searching and attaining samadhi.  It also balances the yang practice and is encouraged to practice at least once a week for the regularly practicing yogi.
