Class Descriptions

All Levels Yoga is for everyone! Clear instruction is given in breathing technique, warm-up and posture flow. Newer students will develop body awareness, posture alignment and core strength in basic poses, while experienced students are encouraged to explore advanced variations in familiar postures. Everyone works to his or her own ability and comfort level.

Barre Sculpt ignites and burns the muscles to their maximum potential while yoga lengthens, elongates and tones them. During this class you will move, stretch and tone your whole body using a ballet barre. This class will begin with a yoga infused barre toning session, incorporate arm and core work and end with stretches to add more flexibility. This class will complement your regular yoga practice, while boosting your metabolism and incorporating balance, flexibility, isolated muscle contraction and intelligent movement. No experience necessary. All our sculpt classes end with stretching and a final relaxation.

Chakra Flow Yoga (WARM) – Warm Chakra Flow: Our chakras are the gateway where our emotions and physical bodies intersect – thus producing how we react, feel, live and interact with others. As life happens day-to-day, we take on so much emotional and mental garbage that we store away in these various chakras, leaving us bogged down, overwhelmed and exhausted by the end of the week. In this class, we will take a specific focus toward cleansing, detoxing and empowering the chakras needing our attention on that particular day, leaving us feeling more clear, relaxed, balanced and peaceful. Class is similar in format to a traditional vinyasa yoga class, just with a more specific intention. Class is heated to approximately 80 degrees.

Flow Yoga classes maintain awareness and focus on the breath while moving through a series of postures. The sequence of postures may be different from class to class, but always follow an intelligent progression that moves from basic to complex. This style of yoga builds heat, flexibility and strength, while maintaining focus on good alignment and sound structure. Postures may be held for longer periods of time, and will flow together to unite the body to the breath and mind. These classes are at a faster pace so some knowledge of yoga is recommended.

HIIT Sculpt is designed to challenge you! This innovative strength training, endurance building, and cardio-focused class begins with yoga inspired warm ups followed by high intensity interval movements and finishes with deep stretching for a total body workout. Students will explore strengthening exercises and experience a full-body training session that will take your muscles out of their comfort zone, increase your strength, and enhance your flexibility and stamina. No experience necessary. All our sculpt classes end with stretching and a final relaxation.

Power Yoga is more challenging vinyasa flow class that combines the alignment and deep focus of Iyengar with the fluidity and energy of Ashtanga, using breath as the vehicle. This form of yoga challenges the mind, the body, and the spirit to work as one to detox, heal, and open the individual physically, emotionally and spiritually. Room is heated to approximately 90-95 degrees.

Restorative Yin Yoga is the best of both worlds alternating between restorative poses and Yin poses. What’s the difference? Restorative poses are seated poses using the support of props and are held at least 5 minutes. Yin poses are seated poses without props held 3-5 minutes. Restorative poses are great for opening the back, calming the mind and even good for chronic fatigue. Yin offers the deep stretching to increase flexibility and rehabilitate the joints and muscles.

Slow Flow Yoga is a flowing sequence of movements, in which the asanas (poses) and prana (energy/breath) are inter-connected. In a slow flow class, some of the poses are held for several breath cycles to refine the posture of the body, mind and heart. Classical yoga poses are taught, along with variations and a few “twists”, to help keep the mind attentive and the body and mind interested. In each class, we will practice being present, while building strength and flexibility along with resilience of the mind, body and spirit.
