Basic/Beginners: This class is helpful for those new to yoga or those who just want a more gentle class.  Explore the fundamentals of yoga as you learn how to breathe and move deeply from within.  Practice light movements with consciousness to build strength, balance and flexibility and inner peace.

Chair Yoga: Chair yoga just isn't for seniors.

You can perform most yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation techniques from a chair.

Yoga Poses

 

Yoga/Pilates Fusion: Experience a dynamic blend of Yoga with Pilates core work. Follow your breath with this flowing approach designed to increase strength and flexibility, improve posture, reduce stress and transform your body. All levels are welcome.

Ashtanga Short Form: Based on a set sequence of yoga poses developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, synchronizing the breath with the continuous flow of movement. The shortened primary series class is open to beginners who are new to Ashtanga and advanced practitioners who are looking to increase mindfulness, strength and stamina. All levels.

Yin Yoga: Yin yoga helps stretch the connective tissues of the body. The practice is quiet and passive; it has a quality of stillness. The poses are held for a longer period of time which can be very meditative and calming allowing your awareness and breath to be directed to a particular part of the body and keeping your joints mobile and helping regulate the flow of energy in the body. This type of practice is beneficial to all levels.

Vinyasa Flow: A dynamic flowing form of yoga, linking body movements with the breath.  This class weaves a series of yoga postures through traditional Sun Salutations along with standing postures, backbends, inversions and twists.  This invigorating heated flow will warm the body; ease the mind of stress while improving strength and flexibility.  Some previous knowledge of poses is helpful.

Hot Yoga Vinyasa Flow: The room is heated to 95 degrees for this vigorous flow, which helps loosens up muscles and tendons and allowing deeper, longer more effective movements.  The heat releases toxins and strengthens the immune systems as well as to quickly burn calories.  Previous experience is recommended.  Please hydrate prior to class.

Kids Yoga: Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with their inner self and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface. Kindergarten through 3rd grade.
