  • Vinyasa Yoga All Levels (Lt Heat)
  • Building heat to open the body can be done in several ways: one is practicing a rigorous fast paced class such as Power Yoga, another is to simply slow down and hold your asana longer. Deep Stretch is an active stretching class that targets primary muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings and upper back. Tight muscles can cause imbalance and pull the body out of alignment. This class begins with warm-up movements to build heat and prepare the muscles to for stretching and consists of postures held for at least 1-2 minutes while also incorporating a Vinyasa flow. When we slow down we are more capable of listening to and connecting to our bodies. Take some time to breath, watch your practice intensify.

    Suitable for all levels. / Balancing Classes: Power Vinyasa, Hour of Power, All Levels Vinyasa

  • Candlelight Gentle Yoga
  • Our Gentle Yoga class invites you to enter the inner realm of freedom from stress, tension, mental and physical discomforts, and freedom from competition with others! Whether you are a beginner or experienced student, this is a perfect class to pause, breathe, and be present. With a slower flow, this class allows the instructor to place emphasis on stretching and coordination of breath with simplified asana, also focusing on feeling sensations and listening to the body. Busy minds and tight or tense bodies strongly welcomed.
    *Evening Gentle classes will be accompanied with soft candlelight and a gentler flow than morning classes.

  • Gentle/Restorative Yoga
  • Our 45-minute Gentle Yoga practice invites you to slow down and drop into your body, offering you the opportunity to take time to feel the sensations that arise within the body in each asana. We'll focus on simple postures in order to bring harmony to both sides of the mind and physical body. The 30-minute Restorative Yoga cool down will include the use of props to support your body comfortably to induce relaxation. This portion will help you to shift out of the fight/flight mode (sympathetic nervous system), where most of us spend our waking hours, and into a relaxation state (parasympathetic nervous system). Restorative yoga assists in relieving the harmful effects of stress and promoting greater health. Putting the two together leaves you feeling lengthened, strengthened, and rejuvenated. This hybrid yoga class is a powerful balance between movement and stillness, inside and out.
