Basics: A beginning yoga class that touches on the fundamentals of all forms of traditional yoga. Control over the breath, body, and mind will begin. Meant for the beginning student but all levels are welcome.
Slow Flow: We need to slow down! We all rush through our lives so quickly we often miss what is right in front of us. This is the energy we often bring to the mat. In this class we take pause. We slow down the flow to the subtle muscle actions in each posture to give them time to work us from the inside out. We deal deeply with breath as well as different techniques on meditation to find stillness, and peace within our heads and our hearts. All levels are welcome.
Vinyasa: Vinyasa (meaning “flow” in English) is a blanket term used by yogis to describe a multi-disciplinary class which focuses on alignment and breath awareness while moderately flowing from one posture to the next using breath as the vehicle. This class pulls from some of the many different paths of yoga including Iyengar, Hatha, Power, and Ashtanga yoga. Using sun salutations and breath-linked movement to transition from one pose to the next makes for a physically challenging class that allows students to flow and focus on their breath while detoxing the body, mind and spirit. This class is suitable for intermediate beginners up to advanced students.
Ashtanga Primary Series:Ashtanga yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. Rooted in ancient India, the physical practice of ashtanga yoga has developed over the ages into a science of the human body. Using the breath as a vehicle, the student is guided through a series of poses specifically designed to cultivate balance, strength, and flexibility while detoxing the body from the inside out – physically, mentally and spiritually. Ashtanga is a tool for self observation and nurtures peace of mind. Intermediate to advanced level class. Not intended for beginning students.
Power: Based on Ashtanga yoga, power yoga is more challenging vinyasa flow class that combines the alignment and deep focus of Iyengar with the fluidity and energy of Ashtanga, using breath as the vehicle. This form of yoga challenges the mind, the body, and the spirit to work as one to detox, heal, and open the individual physically, emotionally and spiritually. Hot power yoga classes are the same format only the room is 5-10 degrees warmer than a traditional power yoga class on our schedule. Intermediate to advanced level class. Not intended for beginning students.
