Energizing Classes.

Flow

This is a well-balanced class with sun salutations, standing poses and time on the floor. There is often a teaching at the start, and time for meditation. Expect smooth and spicy sequencing to generate all the heat you need to transform and grow in your practice, grounding asanas, rad tunes, and some time for meditation and relaxation. These classes are taught by our most experienced, seasoned teachers, each of whom are masters at taking students on a journey meant to cultivate strength, flexibility, and balance, as well as hone in on the subtler aspects of yoga. Everyone is welcome, modifications and a range of options for different bodies and experience levels.

Perfect Hour

All levels. This comprehensive asana practice has all you need, in a condensed 60-minute format. Expect a thorough and well-edited sequence including sun salutations, standing and seated poses, back-bending, inversion, and meditation. Each teacher offers a unique perfect hour with all the trimmings! Tune up, tune in, get it all in, and get on with your day!

Mellow Flow

A sequence of yoga poses that smoothly transition from one to the next with the use of steady, fluid breathing. The class can be as gentle or advanced as the practitioner chooses, as modifications will be offered throughout. Appropriate for beginners or regular practitioners looking for a mindful practice.

Pilates & Yoga Fusion w/Marie

Marie’s Yoga & Pilates Fusion class is a great mix of pilates core stability moves that will lead you safely into more advanced yoga poses like the full wheel pose and other inversions. Both practices encourage mindfulness of movement and breath. At times, the two practices differ in the finer details. These differences allow for a deeper exploration and discovering of your personal preferences. The physical benefits of these classes are similar to other forms of exercise: greater core strength, endurance and flexibility.

Wall Yoga Practice

A yoga practice with core work, standing poses and inversions that takes place mainly at the wall. Using the wall to assist, help stabilize and open us up, this practice is energetic and grounding at the same time. Upside down, on the floor, and feet up against the wall are just some of the ways that yoga can be practiced when using the wall as a prop. The wall is a limitless resource to us, and brings about increased circulation to the concave curvature of the lower back and mobility in the joints, as the body is allowed to move beyond the range of its everyday motions. It also acts a tremendous support and stabilizer and can give us an experience of a pose that may be beyond reach without the wall, such as headstand, forearm stand, or standing split. You’re bound to leave the studio walking taller and feeling more supple in your spine.

Power Flow & Let Go

This class is designed to challenge students physically, as well as offer moments of reflection, restoration, and rest, at the start and end of each practice. A rigorous, athletic vinyasa sequence that may include core work, balancing poses, inversions and arm balances, all intended to strengthen and stabilize. This fast-paced flow is suited for experienced yogis or adventurous beginners.

Restorative Classes.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a style of yoga that targets the connective tissue, fascia and tendons. A gentle and slow class that allows the weight of gravity to softly unwind the connective tissues of the body that are naturally resistant to fast, rhythmic, repetitive Yang movements. In our Yin classes, poses are held anywhere between 3-5 minutes. Yin Yoga compliments any yoga practice.With longer holds in yin yoga, the deep stretching reaches the web of meridians and can transport nutrients as well as chi (energy) to all areas of the body and also restore the body into a feeling of open, relaxed and rejuvenated.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga & Meditation brings about change. If you want to change, practice. We use the ancient practices of chanting, breath work (pranayam), movement (asana), hand position (mudra), focus (drishti), relaxation, and meditation to bring about specific intentions. This practice can be powerful, transformational, and elevating. It can give an experience of the true self. One must experience it to know it. Beginners are most welcome, even if you’ve never done any yoga or meditation before.

Gentle Flow & Meditation

A yoga class that slows things way down while still moving with intention and grace, in slow and creative ways. This practice is meant to invite relaxation in your day and connection with the body, ending with a peaceful meditation. Expect to use props, hold restorative poses, and find a mental reset. This class is ideal for all levels and all humans, including new yogis and those recovering from injury or illness. Beginners and older adults are encouraged!

Meditation

Calm your mind, settle your body and find a softer focus to your day by joining a skilled practitioner and guide for group meditation. Beginners to practicing meditators will benefit from this class, as will more experienced practitioners who want to be accountable and carve out the time to just show up. This practice consists of a beginning breath work and then progressing into guided mindfulness meditation and may include mantra meditation, guided imagery, mindfulness, etc. A discussion on bringing meditation into our daily lives may follow if time allows.

Group Health Coaching w/ Marie

Welcome to group health coaching! Get inspired, create new habits and stay motivated to eat healthier with the support of weekly group meetings. This class is all about bio-individuality, which is learning to eat what’s right for you instead of following a strict “diet” meant for all. Make small daily changes that make a big difference to our health! Bring a pen and your favorite notebook to write down your new habits!

Bhakti Classes.

 

Bhakti is the yoga of love, devotion, and surrender. It can take many forms—asana, kirtan & music, study of the goddesses and gods, etc.

Bhakti Flow w/ Hollie Sue

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotion. As a practice, it is meant to strengthen and deepen your personal relationship to God, your Ishta-Devata. As a way of life, it is an expression of Pure Love in all we do. This class takes as its starting place the idea that a connection to the Divine and a desire to love unconditionally is the most highest of all forms of yoga. Hollie Sue’s teaching-style reflects her background as a philosopher and activist, as well as her love of music, art, and spirituality in many forms.

Kirtan

Kirtan is devotional call-and-response chanting, or singing, in the language of yoga – Sanskrit. It is an ancient practice meant to bring us closer to our true nature – LOVE – and to uplift our thoughts, words, and actions. Each chant has its own sacred and healing sound vibration. Kirtan is a beautiful practice, which requires no expertise or spirituality on the part of participants. You don’t have to be a singer, know Sanskrit, practice yoga, or even be able to carry a tune! All that is required is an open heart and a desire to lose yourself in the sound vibrations, and to help create a sense of connection and unity.
