Class Descriptions

 

Slow Flow 

This is a slow, gentle practice, perfect for all levels.  We will mix up styles and move from floor to standing positions, utilizing props, blocks, bolsters, and blankets to assist us in and out of postures.  Exploring mindful movement and breath you will improve overall strength and flexibility while calming the mind, bringing awareness to the present.  Rest your mind and restore balance, while feeling energized and refreshed.

Yoga For Flexibility and Strength

A blend of yin and yang asanas will balance relaxation and energy flow. Longer holds will target the connective tissues and ligaments. Muscle work will focus on both lengthening and strengthening. If you experience high intensity at work, home or play this practice will quiet your mind and relax your body. Enjoy overall improved flexibility and strength. Breath will enhance a deep state of relaxation in the body and mind. Appropriate for all levels. 

Vinyasa Flow   

This class is recommended for students with some yoga experience.  We link yoga postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using the breath.  This class helps build strength, flexibility, and concentration while calming the mind.

Mindful Movement  In this mid level class will warm the body and lubricate the joints through gentle and dynamic movement and conscious breath work; while incorporating sound and energy healing techniques as well as brief meditation to leave you feeling energized, refreshed and peaceful for the remainder of the day.

Vin to Yin Yoga  

This class will begin with a flow, Yang (muscular) movement, through sun salutations, Warrior Flows and balancing postures.  In the second half of the class we will come back down to the floor creating Yin poses which will be held longer targeting the connective tissues and stimulating joint lubrication.  You will leave feeling balanced mentally and physically.  . 

Yin + Flow  

The opposite sequence of the Vin to Yin class!   Yin and Flow has fused the Yin style of long-held passive poses with the dynamic, yang style of Vinyasa (flow). Traditionally a Yin practice is done on a "cold" body and passively stretches your connective tissue to promote health of your joints and internal organs. Thus, this class will begin with Yin to open the body to more flexibility and energy flow while encouraging a more contemplative, non-reactive quality of mind. After a few long held poses the class will move into a flow to strengthen and invigorate the body and mind. 

Intro to PiYo

In intro to PiYo we will slow it down and allow more teacher demonstration.  PiYo is a fun, music-driven class that combines the strengthening benefits of Pilates with the flexibility and enhancing effects of yoga. It is a dynamic, energetic program that provides a full-body workout to burn calories, tone muscles, work on balance and get a great stretch. Each section of class has patterns, so learning is easy, and you build confidence with each class! Although It is high energy, the movements are low impact and adaptable to all ages and fitness levels. Join us!

Beginner Plus

Beginner Plus is designed as an introduction to the practice of yoga as well as those with some basic knowledge of yoga.   Class is slower paced than an all-levels class, and focused on developing clear and safe alignment in foundational poses. All bodies are welcome.

Functional Flow

The new class will focus on improving mobility and stability using movements that we use regularly in our daily lives. Through a gentle flow of poses, you’ll learn how to move efficiently to prevent injury and minimize pesky aches and pains. Gain a better understanding of your body and get ‘unstuck’ physically, mentally, and emotionally.  The class is appropriate for all levels.
