Ashtanga

Mondays, 7:15 pm

Ashtanga is a fixed series of postures, students can see their progress in poses over time. 
This practice is open to all levels and intermediate practitioners will be offered more advanced variations so everyone can discover their growing edge.

More about Ashtanga: 
Ashtanga is a flowing style of Hatha yoga developed by Sri Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga consists of a fixed sequence of postures, designed to cultivate strength, flexibility, endurance, and a sense of stillness to the mind. This first series of Ashtanga cha llenges you to maintain the breath and includes sun salutations (vinyasa) throughout followed by forward bends, balance and standing poses, then ending in seated poses. This class is led. Finishing poses will vary due to the one hour length.

Gentle Yoga

Tuesdays, 6:00 pm

 

This class is suitable for all levels. Expect to feel refreshed, calm, and centered after this slower, relaxed class which takes a gentle approach to practicing yoga. In this class, we move slowly and intentionally through gentle asanas (poses) to release tension from tight muscles by focusing on gently lengthening the muscles in the body.

 

By utilizing passive and supported postures, gentle flowing sequences, and breath work, this class is perfect for those who are just beginning their yoga practice, those recovering from injuries, or seasoned yogis seeking a more relaxed approach to their practice.

Core Flow

Tuesdays, 7:15 pm

This class is a creative fusion of vinyasa flow, core work, Pilates, and strength training using only body weight. Some yoga experience or fit beginners.

Align & Flow

Wednesdays, 6:00 pm

 

This stationary yoga class incorporates some flow with special emphasis on alignment. Poses are held for longer periods in accurate alignment focusing on core strength, flexibility, and balance.  Class begins with seated stretches then moves into a sequence of yoga poses for the whole body. The last part of class is spent in a restorative pose that targets the connective tissues. This style of yoga, while challenging, is suitable for all levels with modifications offered throughout.

Flow to Zen

Thursdays, 7:15 PM

Tune in, unwind, and let go of your day with this class, suitable for all levels. We’ll start with a vinyasa flow to upbeat music for the first half of class with postures focused on strength & balance. The class will slowly wind down into deep stretches to increase flexibility and bring relaxation to the mind and body. This class will combine flow, yin, restorative yoga & meditative techniques.

Power Vinyasa Flow

Thursdays, 6:00 PM

Vinyasa mindfully builds heat through the practice as it flows from one posture (asana) to the next. This class is a great way to increase strength, flexibility, and stamina. We structure the class to build to a peak pose; we open and heat the body intentionally to move into more advanced poses. This class provides a space to practice something you might not try at home!

Gentle Flow

Fridays, 10:45 am

Saturdays, 9:00 am

 

This class is held at a slower pace, suitable for beginners, those with limitations, and experienced students. Flow through gentle movements coordinated with the breath, although some balance practice and strength building will be included.
