Yoga Fundamentals “The Beginner Class”
–  Alignment-based Yoga. Props are used to assist students in aligning their bodies properly in postures. This class is great for both beginners and intermediate students alike. It’s always good to get back to the basics.

Beginner Vinyasa Flow – For students who are new to yoga or have had minimal practice. These classes follow a basic flow of postures.

Warm Vinyasa Flow – Warm classes are heated up to 80 degrees and hotter. As a tip please drink as much water as you can before or after class and please refrain from eating two hours prior. These classes explore inversions, arm balances, and other advanced postures; however, modifications are always offered.  Level 2+

Open Level Vinyasa – For students who are new to yoga or have had minimal practice AND for students who have experience and are interested in advancing their practice. These classes follow a basic flow of postures while incorporating more challenging postures, including inversions and arm balances; however,  modifications are always offered.

Ashtanga Yoga – A dynamic sequence created by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois which features six different series. At Yoga Bliss we teach the Primary Series with Sun Salutations A & B at the beginning to warm the body, a standing sequence for improved balance, a seated sequence for improved flexibility, and a meditation &  breath control sequence at the end to cool back down.  This is an intermediate level class and previous yoga experience or teacher approval is required to participate. We think you will enjoy this sweaty practice and challenging pace.

Restorative Yoga – Restorative yoga helps us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. Props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps, and pillows are utilized to support the body in the postures to help reach a deeper sense of relaxation. Restorative classes are great for beginner and advanced practitioners.

Kundalini Yoga – Kundalini yoga is the Yoga of awareness. Each class is a unique experience, blending asana (postures), pranayama (breath), mantra (sacred sound) and meditation in unique proportions. Classes are accompanied by the deeply healing sound vibration of live gong. Each class is an opportunity to transform one’s awareness, go deeply within and live your truth. Come join us and celebrate our authentic wisdom and one-ness
