A gentle and slow-moving Hatha and Kripalu-styled class with a focus on relaxation practices, mindfulness and breath awareness. This mat-based class is appropriate for all ages and abilities. Participants do not need to be flexible nor fit to participate. The class is designed to stretch and strengthen the body, increase balance, improve posture, and help cope with health challenges. Beginners welcome.
Yoga for Life
Designed for those who are just beginning a practice. For many, it may seem intimidating to jump into a yoga class that has regular participants, fast paced transitions and seemingly complicated body poses. Introduction to Yoga mindfully helps beginners gain confidence and strength by focusing on body awareness, pairing breath and motion as well as foundations of posture that make transitioning into a more challenging practice safe and comfortable.
The focus of this class is to help participants synthesize two important aspects of Yoga, Dhyana (meditation) and Asana (body postures). This class includes a guided meditation paired with flowing body poses of varying intensity. Participants will gain a sound model of meditation practice, accompanied by physical practice. This helps in setting the foundation for carrying the peace and confidence gained on the yoga mat into the outside world of everyday life.
In a traditional flow structure, this class typically begins with centering and breath awareness, followed by warm-up movements, linking breath with movement, building toward more challenging poses, including standing and arm balance and core-strengthening poses, concluding with relaxation and meditation. It is recommended that those brand new to yoga first take Intro to Yoga or Gentle Yoga before this class.
The focus of yin is to bring deep relaxation to both the mind and body while digging deep beyond superficial layers to increase flexibility and help regulate the flow of energy. In this class postures are often held for 3- 5 minutes at a time to help target deep connective tissues, move past the muscle and be mindful to areas that encompass a joint. This class is appropriate for all ages and abilities and focuses on healing beyond just the physical body. The more meditative approach of yin teaches you to really listen to your body and is perfect for complementing other styles of yoga or different forms of physical activity.
This class is designed to guide you through a modified version of the Ashtanga Primary Series. We will explore the postures of the primary series without attempting the full series. All levels are welcome as we encourage modifications and props as needed, however this class is vigorous, and experience with sun salutations is recommended.
Wake up the body, calm the mind and create a perfect platform to start your day. Students will be led through a traditional flow style class as we connect breath awareness to body movement. This class begins with centering the mind, moves through gentle warm ups, works its way into strength building postures and ends with postures to cool down the body leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed. Suitable for all levels and can be adjusted to individual needs.
Vinyasa Flow is a meditative practice, allowing breath to guide the body mindfully as it moves through space. The class is designed with adequate alignment and plenty of variations and modifications to serve students of all skill levels, promoting exploration of movement. Vinyasa Flow is beginner friendly, though some yoga experience will always be beneficial. We will explore through a variety of asanas, or physical postures, that both stretch and strengthen muscles in the whole body. The goal is not to achieve a pose, but to incite self discovery, release tension, and create peace within.
Mindfulness can be defined as a mental state that is brought about by focusing ones awareness on the present moment. Mindful vinyasa flow uses asana (yoga postures) as a means to recognize ourselves within the present and create a practice where the connection between body, breath and mind is honored. Students will be lead through a traditional flow style class as it begins with centering the mind, moves through gentle warm ups, works its way into strength building postures and ends with postures to cool down the body leaving you feeling balanced and restored. This class is suitable for all levels as we explore the option of both modifying and advancing the practice depending on the students needs.
We like to think of donation classes as something like yoga appreciation. Many studios offer them on Fridays and it is a great class to end the week with. It is called “donation” because there is no set monetary requirement. People pay nothing or as much as they want to “donate”. It is a good class for new people wanting to try it out as well as for experienced people to continue their practice another day of the week. Donation classes are aimed at all levels, and the style varies from week to week and from facilitator to facilitator.
