Class Descriptions

Basics is appropriate for the beginner who wants to build a strong foundation of basic Yoga postures and breathing techniques, as well as for the practitioner who wants to refine and master the fundamentals. We break down the basics of individual movements and teach basic yoga fundamentals to help you develop a solid yoga foundation. It is our intention to get you moving so that you can feel the effect of the yoga, but provide extra instruction at a slightly slower pace to help you build your yoga foundation. Please bring your mat.

Flow (Vinyasa) classes will tone, strengthen and purify your body. The dynamic mix of sweat and surrender will challenge you to your edge and encourage you to reach your true potential. The Power sequence is a series of postures that flow from one to the next, on breath. Modifications offered for less intense and more advanced pose options.

Gentle is designed for those who prefer a class less vigorous. It includes gentle stretches and breathing as well as simple movements designed to systematically increase the range of motion of every major joint and increase energy. Ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle/joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue.

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 85-90 degrees.

Morning Flow is comparable to Vinyasa Yoga honoring individuals’ energetic levels earlier in the morning. This class allows you to arrive and enjoy quiet stillness, warm up and energize the body, and leave class ready to enter the rest of your day with vitality and equanimity. Class is tailored to all students in the room so each class could vary.

Restorative Yin & Meditation class 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. Class also incorporates meditation. Suitable for all levels. 

Slow Flow 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.

Stretch & Flow is the perfect combination of Yang and Yin. For the first half of class will begin with a warming Vinyasa sequence (Yang) of sun salutes and standing poses. For the 2nd half of class, we will move into a more quiet, still space. Staying on the floor, we will hold postures for 3-5 minutes, activating and working the connective tissue in our joints, and in doing so, increase flexibility and mobility in the spine, hips and shoulders. This class is ideal for all levels.
