Get To Know Your Core

LEVEL 2-3

Class begins with a vigorous Yoga flow warm-up and core exercises then moves into weight training with balance work. Finishing with mat-Pilates exercises to strengthen the whole torso. Designed to get to know your core, develop body awareness and gain strength in your trunk.

Hatha Flow

ALL LEVELS

Hatha flow classes focus on coordinating breath with movements and postures. Flowing sequences will be balanced with longer holds. Postures are held to build strength, have time for alignment, and to stabilize the mind. Flows are intended to increase the heart rate and create fluidity in the body. Students will learn the principles of alignment, anatomy, body mechanics and mindfulness. These classes are designed to allow each participant to gauge the intensity of the class based on their particular needs.

 

Hatha Flow II

LEVEL 2

Yoga is a practice and a path that invites connection and witnessing through awareness of breath first and foremost. During our unique experience on the mat, we will connect to the ebb and flow of our own inspirations and exhalations guiding us to observe that which we cannot see, and what we can feel. Together we will unwind the day, inviting new movement into our bodies to reset the physical and emotional through an intentional practice. The facilitated flow is in the Hatha tradition as we mindfully enter the practice, build through our asanas, and wind down into a space of witnessing. You are invited to join me and express your truest self in the present moment, letting the breath guide you, deepening into Self. See you on the mat!

 Gentle Yoga

ALL LEVELS (SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS)

This slow paced class will work the body gradually.  Postures are practiced at a slower pace with attention to breath and alignment. Slow flowing sequences are paired with gentle strengthening movements, but not to the intensity of a hatha flow class. This well rounded class is designed to build strength and increase flexibility. Great for seniors, given you have the ability to move up and down from the floor.

 

 Senior Yoga

ALL LEVELS (SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS)

Chair Yoga offers a safe, low-impact workout, with cross training benefits that will change your life for the best. Flexibility, mobility, bone density and strength can all be enhanced with the practice of Chair Yoga.

Chair Yoga is especially well suited to older adults or persons recovering from injury or illness because this practice doesn’t put undue stress on joints and can be customized to suit persons with physical limitations.

Vinyasa Flow

LEVEL 2-3

This dynamic class focuses on linking movements with the breath, encouraging a sense of flow between asanas while also establishing a sense of healthy alignment in each posture. Class includes sun salutations, standing poses, balancing postures, seated and reclining poses, backbends, and core isolation as well as yogic philosophy and chanting.

Power Yoga

LEVEL 2-3

Vinyasa Power Yoga is a fluid, powerful, style of yoga that links movement and breath together and is based on intuition rather than tradition. Vinyasa Power Yoga heals, detoxifies and exhilarates the body and mind with emphasis on movement, balance, and intention.  The dynamic mix of sweat and spirit that is cultivated in a Power Yoga class will challenge you to step up to your edge, and unlock your hidden potential for achieving authentic personal power and living an extraordinary life.  Be prepared to SHINE!

Align & Flow

LEVEL 1-2

This class is an alignment based Vinyasa class. The pace will be slower than our power and flow classes so we can focus on alignment and posture. This class is great for anyone working with injuries, or just wanting to brush up on the foundations of alignment. Explore your body and mind with yoga postures, breath and meditation. Emphasis is on alignment and self awareness for a safe practice.  Develop and maintain strength, flexibility and balance for health and well being.
