More Active Styles

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Flow yoga, also known as Vinyasa yoga, is a term that encompasses several styles of yoga. What they all share is a focus on synchronizing the body’s motions and the breath. This synchronization results in a very steady practice, and it increases mental focus. This class will help you build heat, strength and flexibility. Expect to repeat series of flowing postures and longer holds.

Sunrise Vinyasa Flow

Start your day with a sweet and mindful moving meditation. You’ll be guided to move through sun salutations, backbends and twists to wake up your body. You’ll leave with a sense of grounding energy, prepared to take on your day.

Power Flow Yoga

Energetic and powerful Power inspired Vinyasa class where students will move from one pose to the next while connecting to their breath (Ujjayi pranayama) with their movements. This class will encourage the student to tune into their bodies. The sequence offers strength building, while also encouraging a meditative state through focus on the present.

Dharma Vinyasa Flow (All levels)

A multi-level and physically absorbing vinyasa class that offers a balance of strength, flexibility, and endurance to challenge any student. Poses will be offered at varying levels and the teacher will be able to take each student where they need to go. Dharma Vinyasa integrates the flow of prana through the spinal column and supports healthy vitality deeply into all areas of the physical, metabolic, pranic, and bliss bodies. Dharma Vinyasa promotes harmony within all these layers so a concentrated state of radiant health is achieved.The class will begin with a warm up and transition to stationary poses for meditation. This class will include all 8-limbs of yoga.

Jivamukti Vinyasa Flow

Jivamukti Vinyasa Flow presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, vigorous vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. Suitable to all levels of practitioner.

Candlelight Flow

End your weekend with the tranquility of Candlelight Yoga. This class blends pranayama (deep breathing exercises), heating the body through movement, and restorative poses with a focus on relaxing into the deepest layers of the body to return us to a place of release, surrender and calm. During the class we will be exploring poses to restore your natural rhythm, dissolve tension and cultivate a deep sense of well-being that will support you well after the class is over. The deep stretch class will improve joint flexibility, free stagnation in the muscle tissue, lubricate the joints and foster a quiet, meditative state.

Hatha

This simple practice is designed to balance, align and calm your body, mind & energy in preparation for meditation. Classes will be geared towards the needs of attendees, though you can always expect breathwork and a physical asana practice that is both challenging and accessible. As “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), translates to a yoga of balance, this practice includes standing poses, backbends, sidebends, inversions, twists, & forward folds.

Yin and Yang

Yin yoga targets deep fascia and improves flexibility. Yang yoga (Vinyasa Flow) builds strength and
stability. Combining these complementary practices will leave you feeling balanced and whole

Pre-natal

This class is perfect for expecting mamas! The focus in this practice is to prepare the body and mind for labor, birth and motherhood, in addition to simply taking time to re-connect to baby. This is done through breathing techniques, strengthening and restorative asana, occasional chanting, and meditation. The slow and strengthening physical practice is specially suited for a changing body and growing baby. Many mamas have found the postural practice to help ease common discomforts such as aches and pain in the back, hips, and neck/shoulders. All three trimesters and all levels are welcome! As with any exercise program, please consult your physician/midwife before attending.

Lunchtime Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Taking time for yourself mid-day to come to your mats for a rejuvenating and energized flow class for all levels!


Less Active Styles

Beginner’s Yoga

Learn the fundamentals of asana practice through a focus on alignment. You’ll be guided through a series of breath-linking movements and encouraged to explore your body’s needs. Many options will be provided throughout the practice.

Gentle Yoga

Designed for when you prefer a class less vigorous than Flow Yoga. This class includes gentle stretches, breathing, and simple movements designed to systematically increase the range of motion in your joints and increase energy. This class is ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle/joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue.

Meditative Flow

Cultivate mindfulness through a slow-paced flow connecting breath and active movement, beginning or ending with meditation and restorative, for a purifying, strengthening, balanced, and inner ease practice. Appropriate for beginner and intermediate students.

Restorative Yoga

In this class you’ll use props such as bolsters, blankets, and blocks to get into deeply nourishing poses. Poses are held for 5-20 minutes and 2-3 poses are usually explored per class. Restorative yoga reduces stress and allows the nervous system to calm so you can lead a more balanced life.

Gentle and Restorative

Complementary practices of gentle and restorative yoga designed with gentle stretches, breathing, and simple movements to systematically increase the range of motion in your joints and increase energy to prepare the body and mind for relaxation. Restorative practice is supported by props to get into deeply nourishing poses held for 5-20 minutes. Restorative yoga reduces stress and allows the nervous system to calm to help lead a more balanced life. This class is ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle/joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a nourishing and grounding practice – a delicious counterbalance to a vigorous asana practice. Give your muscles a break and stimulate the deeper tissues in your body. Through long-held poses, props and breath work, you’ll guide your attention to your body’s fascia, ligaments, and joints – the places in your body that require a yin practice to open and release. (All Levels)

Slow Flow and Meditation

Students can expect a similar pace as Slow Flow, including meditations at the start of class to prepare the mind and body for movement, and at end of class to prepare for the mind and body for time off the mat.

Qi Gong

Everything in the universe is created with energy vibrating at different states. In this class you will learn to connect with your energy through the practice of Qigong and a chakra tuning meditation.

Qigong is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space. It is often referred to as a moving mediation.


Meditation & More

Meditation

Meditation is an important aspect to yoga that improves our overall well-being by developing inner-peace, compassion, and our intuition. You will learn how to cultivate awareness and begin to find equanimity in all of life’s challenges. Blankets are provided though many enjoy bringing their own cushions. All levels.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, offers deep relaxation in a shorter time period. It is said that 45 minutes is equivalent to three hours of sleep. Explore this guided meditation to a state of mind between wakefulness and sleep. Focus on personal goals and dreams, while letting go of stress, tension, and anxiety.


Private Sessions

Treat yourself or another to one or several private sessions with any of our yoga teachers.

30min Check-ups
