Class Descriptions

We are very grateful to have a variety of unique Yoga Instructors that each offer their own style of teaching. We encourage all students to try out various instructors and classes if able too. 

YIN YOGA

Yin yoga targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues - ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body - rather than the muscles (which are the physical focus of Yang yoga practices). As we practice yin, we learn to listen to our bodies, slowing everything down. We learn to recognize our thoughts, to see them coming in and out of our mind, and to experience and digest them, instead of having them race through our mind like an escaped rollercoaster. Yin is for everyone. 

SLOW FLOW YOGA

In Slow Flow, the pace is slower than your power/flow class. The pace is meditative, emphasizing peace and calm in body and mind. You will be holding poses longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath. Slow Flow allows you to find the space between poses while still retaining the gentle rhythm of a power/flow class.

Yoga For All

A yoga class for those newer to yoga or those wanting a basic flow class.  This class introduces foundational yoga postures, teaches you how to breath and helps you feel more comfortable in the yoga practice. Although this class moves at a slower pace than the other vinyasa classes, expect to be challenged both mentally and physically. 

VINYASA FLow

Vinyasa means to “flow” and classes challenge you both aerobically and anaerobically by incorporating various strength and cardio sequences. Vinyasa Yoga is the perfect cross-training regimen for students seeking to build stamina, strength, or further enhance their current exercise routine. Our Vinyasa is a form of physical fitness that builds strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and mental stamina all in one class. 

Hatha YOGA

Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. This class may include chanting in the sound of “Om." "Om" represents unity with all things.  This class goes into the deeper roots of yoga and is for all levels. 

KRiya FLOW

Kriya Flow is a medium paced class that will leave you feeling exhilarated and exhausted at the same time.  Initially, you will warm up with a few breathing exercises and energy building kriya movements. "Kriya" translates to evolutionary action. Kriyas are meant to awaken the mind, body and spirit, preparing you for your yoga flow. Kriya Flow layers breathwork and mudras, amongst the traditional asanas you may see in a "vinyasa" (move with breath) type class. The intention of a Kriya class is to build energy and channel it; increasing your stamina to live, breathe and move throughout life - on and off of the mat.  All levels are encouraged and supported. After taking a Kriya Flow class, it will be hard to feel completely fulfilled in a yoga practice without a Kriya in it!

Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga makes yoga accessible to everyone. It is a non-intimidating introduction too yoga. This class is for all levels and offers a practice that includes seated poses on the chair and standing poses using the chair for balance and support. Suitable for those working with injuries, inflexibility, movement disorders, balance problems, and all others looking for extra support in a yoga class. Chair Yoga allows the client to modify their yoga practice based on mobility, health, and current ability level. 

Reiki & Restorative

Reiki is a gentle energy healing technique that works through the subtle energy channels, or chakras, in the body. You will be guided through a slow and restorative yoga practice as you receive Reiki to deeply heal and nourish your body and soul. 

This class is taught by one of our instructors who is a certified Reiki practitioner and Yoga teacher. 

Disclaimer: Reiki and Yoga are a complementary energetic medicine. If you are experiencing serious health issues please consult a doctor prior to beginning.

 

Barre

Barre incorporates elements of dance, Pilates, yoga, and functional fitness training for a total body workout that will leave your muscles burning. You will use small, isolated movements to strengthen and tone, large range of motion to elevate the heart rate, and sequencing that incorporates upper and lower body work. This class includes a Vinyasa warm up and cool down.
