Vinyasa Flow (Various levels)

Vinyasa Flow yoga is an evolving form of traditional Hatha yoga that focuses on integrating breath and movement, awareness and alignment, strength and flexibility. Through flowing sequences, students of our Vinyasa Flow classes enjoy a dynamic and energetic atmosphere, allowing them to reach new levels in their yogic practice. Vinyasa classes are best if you are already physically active, comfortable with the basic yoga postures, and appreciate a healthy sweat.

  • Vinyasa Flow 1 (Beginner)

  • Vinyasa Flow 1/2 (Beginner)

  • Vinyasa Flow 2 (Intermediate)

  • Vinyasa Flow 2&3 (Advanced)
Strength Yoga (All Levels)

Strength Yoga is a perfect blend of yoga, small weight exercises, and light cardio to get the best of all training methods. . The movement is challenging yet accessible for all, and weights are always optional. The class utilizes classic yoga warm-up’s/cool-down’s and sun salutations, mixes it with a healthy-dose of core activation and incorporates overall body strengthening moves that may use a variety of props.

Yin Yang Yoga (All Levels)

Yin is a passive form of yoga that focuses on the connective tissues — the ligaments, tendons, and fascia — of the body. By applying moderate stress to these connective tissues, Yin Yoga aims to increase circulation in joints and improve overall flexibility. Yin postures are typically held for about three-to-five minutes and can be achieved while standing, sitting, or lying on the floor. Yin postures are generally held longer to cultivate a meditative mindset and deeper physical opening.This can be a perfect complement to an active life, creating softness in the body and stillness in the mind.

For a completely integrated practice, this class also combines a strong heating ‘Yang’ Vinyasa Flow along with the quiet cooling ‘Yin’ aspects of relaxing and restorative poses. Our Yin Yang yoga class is the perfect option for yoga students who want to explore more aspects of yogic practice and take their flexibility and bodily awareness to the next level.

Restorative Yoga (All Levels)

Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxation, not stretching. Through the use of props, the body is placed in comfortable and fully supported postures that allow the muscles to completely relax. Postures are held for extended periods of time, allowing you to completely rest the body, mind, and nervous system. This meditative practice helps cultivate a needed balance between body and mind, while also dissolving any mental and physical tension. Restorative yoga strives to help you find peace and calm by providing a respite from a busy lifestyle. Our Restorative yoga classes are also a great option for athletes looking for a way to replenish their body after climbing or any other sport.

Move & Meditate (All Levels)

Move and Meditate is designed to help you dive deeper into your journey of self-discovery and the true meaning of yoga — the union of the mind, body and spirit. The class incorporates many aspects of the yoga practice, including movement (asana), breath techniques (pranayama), and mantra to support a deeper experience of your practice and prepare you for meditation.

Hatha Yoga (Intermediate)

Build strength and stamina in body and mind. Our Intermediate Hatha Yoga 2 class is a balance between flowing Vinyasa and longer holds of Hatha Yoga. Postures are linked with breath to facilitate the art of control and surrender. In this class we alternate between pranayama and meditation techniques so that you have a really rounded yoga experience and enjoy the challenge and rewards that yoga has to offer. We invite you to have fun, honor your body, and practice at your own pace.

Acro Yoga (All Levels)

Acro Yoga is a practice that combines the dynamic wisdom of acrobatics, the awareness, breath and balance of yoga and the healing, loving nature of Thai massage. Working with one or more partners these three disciplines are fused into spectacular sequences of inversions, flows and balances.  Acro Yoga is a community practice, which means that you are working with other people.  In this class we practice developing trust, connection and openness which can then be taken into the community as a whole. In Acro Yoga, the smallest community is 3 people covering the 3 main roles of base, flyer and spotter.

HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training)

(1 class – $10.00 / $80 for 10 Classes)

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has become a popular way to burn fat in the gym, but that’s not all this type of cardio training is good for. The essential framework of high-intensity interval training is always the same: brief, all-out work periods, separated by rest periods that you wish were just a little longer. But no matter how long you rest, the key is that you bring everything you’ve got to your intervals. This 30-minute training will help get your heart rate up, condition your core, increase your strength, and burn plenty of calories. Our HIIT classes are among the most popular for overall fitness.
