Class Descriptions

Morning Glow (45 minutes)

Rise and shine with a beautiful sun salutation practice to welcome the day.  This class will focus on a series of sun salutations and seated stretches as well as a strong awareness to breath.  A gentle moving  class to welcome the new day and get you moving.  Our practice ends with a mindful meditation practice.

Morning Flow (All levels)

Morning Flow is the perfect way to start the day!  This flow class is all about  linking your breath to your movement.  We will rev up the metabolism with sun salutations, lengthen and strengthen muscles, and detoxify all while practicing conscious breathing techniques.  This class is perfect for beginners to advanced yogis.  You will leave class feeling lighter, stronger and full of oxygen!

Gentle Flow/Intro to Yoga (Beginner friendly)

Are you new to yoga?  Our gentle flow classes are sweet, calming flow classes that link basic yoga postures in a purposeful sequence.  This class is perfect for beginners but works equally well for anyone looking for a gentle alternative to a stronger flow class.  You'll always be given the opportunity to keep it mellow or make the poses more challenging with variations of the poses.  If you've never tried yoga this class is perfect for you and designed to meet the needs of those new to yoga.  

Slow Flow (Vinaysa)

Slow Flow brings the element of time into the practice. Students will have time to evaluate how and when a pose should be modified, due to physical limitations or limitations in experience. Students also have  time to mentally engage with the body, as it moves through a series. The mind and body connection is one of the main goals when practicing all forms of Yoga.   All levels of Yoga practitioners can find their personal challenges, as they slowly and mindfully move through a series. 

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa flow classes are the most popular style of yoga practice.  This  class will keep you moving with creative sequences linking sun salutations and standing postures and a strong focus on the power of breath awareness.  This class and its graceful dance will push you to the edge of your balance and flexibility and when you reach that sweet spot you begin to glide and float.  Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures and no two classes are ever exactly alike.  Moderate yoga experience is recommended.

Lunch Express

This class is a shortened version of a Vinyasa Flow class (as described above), to fit the needs of the student dropping in for their practice during lunch, just 45 minutes!  You will still find everything you would in a full 60 minute class.  This class will work on strength, balance and flexibility. 

Fit Flow 

A fitness-based, strong, faster-paced Vinyasa flow class.  Students will build heat, strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and mental stamina.  A total body workout including a cardio component, embracing the sweet sweatyness of this dynamic class.    Moderate yoga experience is recommended.

Flow & Stretch (Feel Good Yoga!)

This class will begin with an active flow, linking postures and sequences with breath, followed by glorious stretches.  Our stretching portion of this class invites you to slow down and create space for stillness while nourishing joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia.  We will use as many props as needed to create as little effort possible while holding poses, which are typically held for 2 – 5 minutes allowing the joints and fascia to release.  Recommended for seasoned beginners and up.

Restore & Adore (All levels)

Unwind with passive, soothing, supported restorative poses to nourish the body and calm the mind.  Props support the body to help release tension and encourage the body's own healing power. During the class you will be guided to mindfully and consciously notice thoughts and sensations in your body.  Students leave feeling nourished, well rested and refreshed. 

Zenya (All levels)

Yoga by candlelight, what could be more soothing?  This  class infuses the ambiance of candlelight and music for a beautiful combination of restorative and flow postures.  De-stress and detoxify just in time for a good night's sleep.  Attention to breath and movement to nourish the body and calm the mind.  De-stress and detoxixify just in time for a good night's sleep.

 

Back Care Yoga (All levels)

Back care class is designed for those who struggle with back discomfort due to injury, stress or over-use.  The focus will be on strengthening muscles, specifically the core, that support the back.  This helps alleviate tension, decrease pain, increase flexibility and spinal mobility.  Gentle stretching and core work while using props will be the area of concentration.  All levels welcome.

Private One-on-One Yoga Sessions

If you're finding a group class just a bit to intimidating?  Is the thought of a one-on-one more appealing?  A private session maybe be just what you're looking for.  Beginning yoga students can sometimes feel overwhelmed in a typical class, particularly during the first few classes.  It can seem difficult to keep up and personal flexibility might require a little work before it becomes easier to get into different poses.  Or the advanced student may want to work towards more strength and balancing poses, perhaps not available in a group class.  Private sessions offer the student the ability to focus on personal goals, concerns and interests, such as flexibility, strength or meditation and breath work.  Health issues or injuries can also make a yoga class impractical for some students.  In a private session the student and teacher collaborate on what's best for the student.  (All levels)

WHAT IS VINYASA YOGA?

Vinyasa yoga is a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath.  Most classes feature several elements of traditional Ashtanga yoga, sun salutations, standing poses, balance poses and back bends with focus on gaze point guided by steady breath.  No two classes are the same.
