All of our classes are for all levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Modifications are offered for every body. We have a few classes for Hatha and Flow with some classes being more challenging than others. Take a look at our class descriptions below to get a sense of what we offer.
Our flow classes range in difficulty and are for all levels. They are described below in order of difficulty with Slow Flow being the most gentle and Power Flow as the most challenging. Flow classes are created so that the student feels as though there is seamless movement from one posture to another. A series of postures called a Sun Salutation is often used in flow classes to build more heat and warm up the body.
Our Slow Flow class begins with a slower-paced vinyasa practice, moving with attention to the breath and alignment to calm the mind and open up the body. We will restore flexibility, build strength, and then settle into stillness with restorative and yin postures to melt away tension and stress, leaving you feeling recharged and renewed. This class is appropriate for all levels, including beginners.
Morning Flow is a yoga class with the emphasis on linking body, mind, and breath. Class will begin with pranayama (breathing exercises), followed by a mixed posture sequence of vinyasa flow and holding postures. Class will end with a meditation and savasana. With the chaos and hectic schedule we all face, let Morning Flow be a helping hand in starting your day centered and energized. The purpose of Morning Flow is to relieve the chaos and stress of our busy lives, leaving us energized and receptive to the possibilities of the day.
Thoughtfully sequenced and appropriately paced flows of asanas (postures) and movement with strong emphasis on proper alignment, breath, personal awareness and individual attention. Each session begins with relaxation using breath and gradual movement to bring focus and self-awareness to the practice and to help set intentions individually and as a unified group. Classes are an athletic, invigorating and challenging physical experience, with the beneficial outcome of calming the mind and relieving stress. Modifications and variations of the postures are offered so students of all levels can flow together. Knowing the basics of yoga is helpful, but not essential.
Power Flow builds endurance, strength, and flexibility with a strong emphasis on matching the breath to the movements. Power Flow will lengthen and tone your body, while soothing your mind, bringing balance to your demanding daily life and leaving you feeling rejuvenated. This is an accessible yet challenging practice open to all levels.
Our Hatha classes range in difficulty and are for all levels. The Gentle Hatha class is the most restorative in the Hatha category. The Hatha class builds more heat and holds postures for longer which can be more challenging. Core Connection combines the concepts of the Hatha class and adds more core work in order to build strength in that area. Hatha classes hold stagnant postures with some flow within each posture.
Gentle Hatha Yoga
This class is great for anyone seeking a gentle approach to yoga regardless of experience, age, or weight – and is an excellent option for beginners. Classes will begin with a centering pranayama (breathing exercises) to relax the senses and soothe the mind. Our asana practice (physical postures) will focus on gentle stretching and proper alignment for basic postures with modifications and props used as needed. We will slowly build in strength and balance, and enjoy an extended restorative savasana.
This class uses asanas (postures) in combination with breath to develop strength, flexibility, and calmness. Postures are held slightly longer with a focus on proper alignment, with sequencing that will leave each student feeling open and balanced. We will explore a variety of standing and supine postures, and all are encouraged to work within their own abilities in this all levels class. Time will be given to a short meditation at either the beginning or end of class each week.
This 60 minute class will focus on building up core strength through hatha and alignment based asanas (postures). Great for anyone looking to strengthen the core and bring more stability into their body. Postnatal students welcome as long as they are at least 6 weeks postpartum. All levels welcome.
Other Adult Classes
Our other adult classes include postnatal, prenatal, restorative, and yin yoga classes. For more information about each class, please see the description below. We recommend attending several yoga classes before taking your first Yin Yoga class. The postures are held for several minutes and can be too intense for beginners. Prenatal is recommended for women who have some experience with yoga before pregnancy.
Nurture and strengthen your body and mind while connecting with your baby. This class will help you relieve stress, loosen your tight shoulders and back, regain abdominal strength, balance out your hormones, increase your energy, and connect you with other moms in the community.
We will stretch and strengthen our bodies in yoga postures that are safe and appropriate for the postpartum body, practice breath work and guided relaxation to relieve tension and stress, and allow time for group discussion about our experiences as new mothers.
This class is for women who have permission from their doctor to resume fitness activities, and their non-mobile babies. Mothers are welcome to care for their babies as needed throughout the class. Breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and diaper changing are expected and encouraged (we have a changing table in our restroom). Please feel free to arrive late and/or leave early as needed.
WHAT TO BRING:
Wear comfortable clothing. We have mats and yoga props available for you to use. Please bring water and a blanket (or 2) for your baby to lay on. Car seats are welcome in the studio. Unfortunately, we do not have enough space for strollers in the studio or the lobby.
Relax your mind, strengthen your body, and prepare for birth. A regular prenatal yoga practice can alleviate many of the physical discomforts of pregnancy, as well as anxiety and stress. Prenatal yoga classes provide an opportunity to connect with your baby and your community, while developing the balance, stamina, and confidence you’ll need during birth and motherhood. Prenatal classes are open to women who are pregnant, planning to be pregnant, or returning to practice after giving birth.
Make time for self care. This all levels class is designed to calm the mind and release tension in the body. We begin with a few minutes of gentle movement to warm up the body before settling into restorative postures. With the use of props, we hold the postures to passively open and stretch the body. The instructor offers hands-on assists, guided relaxation, and breath work throughout the class. This gentle practice will relieve stress and pain in the body so that you feel relaxed, calm, and balanced. We offer Restorative Yoga with and without Essential Oils. Restorative Yoga with Essential Oils incorporates essential oils in order to aid in releasing tension in the body.
Discover new limits of mental and physical stamina with a Yin yoga class. Yin yoga is a down-tempo meditative practice where postures are held for 3-8 minutes to target the connective tissues in the body in order to improve joint mobility, fascia flexibility, and circulation. This class is the perfect compliment to any strength building or cardio exercise, athletics, or vinyasa yoga. The postures are mostly floor postures, but this is not a restorative practice - this is a physically challenging practice and may not be suitable for beginner students or students recovering from a recent joint injury. Yin yoga nourishes the body at a cellular level and aids in digestion, muscle recovery, organ detoxification, and emotional processing. Find strength in stillness in this Yin yoga class.
