All of our classes are for all levels.

Vinyasa

This class works to increase balance, strength and flexibility while emphasizing the connections between the breath, centeredness in the core, and movement.

You can expect a short meditation at the beginning of class followed by gentle warm up exercises, sun salutations, a series of standing poses and plenty of time to wind down into savasana. Be prepared for a playful, explorative and energizing practice. While this class is challenging, students are highly encouraged to move with their own breath and work where they are.

Hatha

This class will offer an opportunity for you to become more curious about  movement, in regards to the specific qualities that are unique to your body and your practice.   We will use breath and traditional asana, to explore ways to move in an integrated and functional way.  Each class sequence will be presented with the goal of teaching skills that a student can utilize consistently in his/her practice, and build upon from week to week. We will explore moving in varying planes and ranges of motion, with trunk stability and active muscle engagement, and an emphasis on stretching with strength and whole body integration.  There will be effort exerted in this class, but in a way that encourages each student to find his/her own intelligent edge.  This class welcomes all levels, all ages, all people.

Restorative

This class centers your breath and body - aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer.

Kids Yoga

This class provides a balance between spontaneity and structure, so that kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. We believe that kids learn best when they're having fun, so interweaving story, games and poses, allows children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinesthetic, visual, intra-personal learning. This makes Yoga for Kids classes much more active than yoga for adults, and much more fun!

In Yoga class, children are also encouraged to respect and pay attention to their bodies, making sure each pose feels good and coming in and out of shapes when they feel ready (something most adults have a hard time doing!). As children grow and their bodies change quickly, this becomes an important skill.

Besides the immense physical and mental benefits, a central tenet of yoga practice is respect and honor: for ourselves; for each other and our environment. In a yoga class, children often go on magical journeys around the world, learning about different animal habitats, endangered species, and often get to share their knowledge of a favorite animal.

Children have an innate affinity with the natural world, and animals in particular They understand and enjoy learning about and caring for the earth and its inhabitants, both human and animal.

Yin

Yin Yoga balances our daily efforts. It is a strong practice of riding what is uncomfortable, letting go, and feeling your work. Class consists of holding poses from 2 to 10 minutes, focusing on one target area of muscles while completely relaxing everything else. Fascia, meridians, and chakras will be discussed. The nature of Yin is slow, full, and intuitive. You will gain the most benefit by going within.
