Candelit Flow

ALL LEVELS (SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS)

This class begins with a slow dynamic flow that opens up the body and allows you to sync into the rhythm of your breath. We will gently explore mindful movement and then settle into stillness with supportive yoga poses that ease the body into a restorative night’s sleep.

 

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

LEVEL 1-2

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.

 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.

Restorative Yoga

ALL LEVELS (SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS)

Busy? Come slow down and nourish yourself! Restorative yoga is the use of props to support the body in positions of ease and comfort to facilitate relaxation and health. It is a practice of deliberate stillness and requires no muscular effort. In this class, we will settle into some supported floor poses  for intervals of about 5 minutes while releasing tension, gently breathing, and allowing gravity to draw us towards the steadiness of the earth underneath. Restorative yoga poses affect our nervous system in a way that reduces the influence of our activating systems (sympathetic) and increases the efforts of our quieting systems (parasympathetic) so that we can rest.  This style of yoga provides a time for BEING instead of DOING. This class is a practice of actively cultivating the attitude of letting go and will help teach you to learn how to deeply relax.

Chair 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. Research shows that yoga can help manage or control arthritis, back pain, blood pressure, depression, diabetes, head aches, chronic fatigue, stress and many more conditions. It can improve muscle tone, flexibility, strength and stamina, concentration and creativity, as well as stimulate the immune system and create a sense of well-being and calm.
Chairs and other props will be used during class and are provided at the studio. Class suitable for all ages.

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 Flow

LEVEL 2-3

Come explore Power Flow developed from a strong Ashanga influence with freedom from the full primary series. Power Flow is a fluid and powerful class that links movement and breath together and is based on intuition rather than tradition. This class assists in healing, detoxifying and energizing the body and mind. Class offers options and modifications for different levels. Students must be able to get on and off the ground comfortably.
