Recharge & Restore

In this class, we use a combination of Vinyasa (or flow) class with some restorative poses thrown in! This class will allow you to get your body moving and then blissed out and relaxed!

Restorative Yoga

In this class, we will use mantras, meditation and gentle movements in addition to traditional restorative postures where you will be well supported with lots of props. The purpose of this class is to give the Central Nervous System a chance to slow down, to bring ourselves out of fight or flight mode and into a state of relaxation and rest. The focus is on connecting to the breath and releasing long-held patterns of stress and tension in the body.

Pilates

Combining traditional Pilate exercises with Integrated Movement Therapies (IMT) this class will focus on developing lean muscles, core strength, balance and flexibility using purposeful movement. It will also help clients become aware of the relationship between breathing patterns and spinal alignment

Fundamentals

Perfect class for beginners, for those who are uncertain, or have questions. For all of us who want to better understand how our body works in movement and flow. This is an opportunity to experience a learning environment for yoga poses and integrated therapeutic exercises, to build posture muscles, healthy alignment and core stability. This is the class where you can ask why. Come with your questions and learn modifications that make asana approachable for everyone. We will spend time deconstructing a pose and practice safely, to protect the spine and joints. Enjoy new ways to approach Eastern traditional poses as we bring them into our Western world.

Hatha

Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely. Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies, we develop a balance of strength and flexibility. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.

Vibrant Vinyasa Flow

A vigorous power-practice designed to challenge and energize. With a focus on core strength, balance, posture and alignment. This class is beneficial to anyone seeking to enhance their overall concentration and center of balance while linking free flowing movement with breath creating a graceful and strong practice.

Yin/Yang

Do you ever feel like you are starting to spin out of control?  Possessed by seemingly endless to-do lists, responsibilities and chores.  Has busy become your norm become your norm because we live in the fast lane and are blinded by more stimulation than we have ever seen before. We have completely transformed the way we live and it’s not surprising that increased levels of anxiety, stress and stimulation are keeping us on edge all day and awake all night.  That’s why it’s time to shake things up with a yin/yang approach to yoga, beginning with mindfulness and a little bit of movement followed by a whole lot of stillness and loads of self-loving. This class will provide you with a practice that starts with deep, introspective, and quiet yoga that evolves into an energizing and uplifting yoga that sets you on your way for the rest of your day.
