Morning Practice: This class offers you an opportunity to start your day off right! A few minutes of reflection and meditation and then physical asana! Notice how an early morning class sets the tone for the day ahead. Get your practice in early, connect to your breath, be mindful and find what feels good. A knowledge of Vinyasa Yoga is strongly recommended.This is a fast paced and energized practice.
Mixed Level Vinyasa Flow: This class moves through a series of flowing, vigorous movements, continuously moving through sequences of Sun Salutations and standing & seated/supine postures. While working to develop strength, endurance, balance, and flexibility, attention is placed on coupling breath with movement. Modifications are always suggested to encourage your own personal pace & progress as well as room for inspiration. You must be familiar with yoga to attend these classes (this class is not recommended if you are brand new to yoga).
Core on the Floor: (NEW) Walk taller, feel stronger! This quick and vigorous class is designed to build core muscle groups while improving posture through performing a variety of exercises that strengthen the abdomen and back muscles and increase flexibility.
Beginners Yoga: This is a class for those who have never taken yoga before or for those seasoned practitioners who want to review and expand their knowledge as well! We will break down postures and sequences, learn some Sanskrit names and how to breathe, so when ready to jump in, the knowledge base is there !
Candle Light Vinyasa: This class, taught primarily by candlelight, is a vinyasa flow. It may help you to release and unwind from your day. We move a little bit slower and calmer with more opportunities for rest. Although it is taught by candle light it is still a challenging practice. A knowledge of yoga is strongly recommended.
Gentle Candlelit Practice: This class is designed for ALL LEVELS-We will move slowly and break down poses so there is an understanding of the practice, lots of breathing and longer holds for deeper stretches. Also taught primarily by candlelight.
Yoga w/Weights: (NEW) In this class we will tone, define, and expand all of the major muscle groups in the body. By adding small 1 or 2 lb. weights to specific yoga postures, we will deepen and build each pose. This class is intense but easy-to-follow and will push your flexibility and strength to levels you never thought were possible. This class also aids in developing a yoga practice that is a more complete workout for mind body & of course spirit. We learn how to build, modify and accept where your body is at each moment of your journey.
Yin Yoga: The class will start with sun salutations to open and warm the body. Next will be yin yoga poses that target the body's connective tissue. The poses will be held from 3-5 minutes. The poses are passive poses, unlike vinyasa’s mostly muscular active poses, that allow the body to open without strain. We will use the wall and props to assist in supporting the body in these poses.
