Gentle Yoga

Beg / Inter

Basic Hatha yoga class taking each posture to the individual’s specific need. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures, breathing techniques, and meditation with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.

Hot Vinyasa

Adv / Inter

Our Hot Vinyasa classes have the same ultimate focus of honoring the breath and synchronizing your breath with your body movements as our Vinyasa classes however the heat in the room is 100-105 degrees. The heated room enables our bodies to increase flexibility and literally wring out through our sweat any toxins (even toxic thoughts) or impurities that are inhibiting us from optimal wellbeing. This dynamic, class reminds us that physical challenge and exertion can lead the way to spiritual contentment. Honoring and balancing effort with surrender Hot Vinyasa class will be a vehicle for you to experience your innate bliss. Please bring a towel, and perhaps your own mat, eye pillow, & bottle of water. It is best to eat no later than 2 hours previous to a Hot Vinyasa practice and HYDRATE RESPONSIBLY before (even during) and after your Hot Vinyasa practice. Most of us perspire heavily in this class helping us to cleanse and glow from the inside out.

Warming Up to Hot Vinyasa

Beg / Inter

This special class is for both those new to yoga who want more instruction regarding breath-work, and physical alignment of yoga postures as well as those practitioners who want to slowly work up to a warmer heated room (about 85-90 degrees F). We will help you feel better prepared for the more dynamic practice of Hot Vinyasa (100-105 degrees F). Still bring your towel and water and be ready to sweat.

Yin Yoga

All Levels

The universe is comprised of both yin and yang qualities. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspects of existence, while yang is the moving, changing, revealing aspects of existence. Yin yoga is a quiet, restorative practice that focuses on expanding and nourishing the deep connective tissues of the body, specifically the ligaments and fascia that connect the bones. Stretching these tissues can bring healing to areas of chronic injury, especially involving the spine and hips. In addition, yin practitioners believe that energy travels throughout the body through meridians in the connective tissue. Yin yoga helps unblock the flow of energy in these channels, bringing balance and healing to the body, mind, and spirit. In a yin practice, you will find the opportunity to bring stillness to your body and mind. We will move slowly, holding each posture for several minutes. This gentle, meditative practice is appropriate for students of all fitness and experience levels.
