Slow Flow

some experience suggested

This mindful practice is deliciously slow and will move you through the entire body gently and sweetly.  Slow flow allows time to go deeper and explore the experience of the postures as you cultivate strength, balance, breath and flexibility.  Don’t be fooled– this class will be challenging!

 

Tuesday Night Vinyasa

A balanced practice, guaranteed to strengthen and invigorate, as well as create ease in the body and mind.  This laid-back flow implements various styles of yoga, all designed to challenge, tone, strengthen, de-stress, and detoxify the body with asanas.  Pose modifications are offered for various levels. Calm and relax the mind and nervous system with pranayama (controlled breathing exercises) along with relaxation/meditation techniques.

 

Wednesday Gentle Yoga

Great for those with physical limitations, older students and those who want a gentle practice. Optimize range of motion, and improve strength, balance and circulation with standing and seated asanas and supine stretches.  We use props to help support joints and troubled areas. Those who wish to practice with a chair are welcome! 

Yin Yoga

all are welcome

Yin is the more cooling female energy, in contrast with the heating, dynamic yang-style practice. This class will feature passive or yin asanas, each held for several minutes to promote deep relaxation and instill mindfulness. Yin targets the connective tissues-especially the joints and fascia-to stretch, hydrate and release tension. Essential oils are offered to enrich your savasana.

 

Heated Vinyasa

all are welcome

This flow class is based in The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga sequence, which traditionally has the same poses in each class.  In this class, while several core poses are included in each class, no two classes will be the same. Those looking to sweat, stretch, strengthen, laugh, learn, deepen physical awareness.  Enjoy soothing and invigorating, essential oils!!  Great music!!  Come and  join the fun!

Saturday Beginners Yoga

All levels welcome– especially beginners!

In this non judgmental beginners hatha-style class we practice the foundational standing and seated postures with emphasis on alignment and use of props. Poses are modified to fit your new practice!

Kundalini is the yoga of awareness. The whole class is designed to take you into your core self with love and acceptance. The movements or chants may seem unfamiliar, but you’ll be amazed at how good they make you feel!
