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.
Hatha Yoga- A general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha is also broken down as ‘ha’ meaning ‘sun’ and ‘tha’ meaning ‘moon’. This refers to the balance of the masculine – sun, hot, active – and the feminine – moon, cool, receptive – within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility – something that is much needed with our current day lifestyles. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose.
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.
Chair Yoga- Chair yoga is a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so that they can be done while seated in a chair. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot stand or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions.
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
Prenatal – Yoga during pregnancy supports a natural process of change in the body and can help women maintain strength, develop body awareness, and open to the healing potential of gestation and birth.
Pilates – Pilates is a system of exercising that strengthens the whole body using a wide variety of exercises. It focuses on centering, concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow. If you are interested in toning your core, this class is for you
Yoga Nidra- Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. Yoga Nidra is great for those who struggle with PTSD and high anxiety.
