We suggest that all students also attend class at a studio to receive hands on guidance from certified teachers.

level 1/2

These more challenging classes continue to build on poses that are the fundamentals of yoga requiring a bit more strength, flexibility, and balance. These classes assume some yoga knowledge and experience. They continue to show modifications and use of props ensuring more difficult postures and sequences are practiced safely and effectively.

level 2

Building on the foundation of proper alignment, poses are linked together with the breath while building strength, stamina and flexibility.  Classes generally have a flow and rhythm to encourage the evolution of one's practice as moving meditation.  They are more vigorous and challenging to help engender mind/body vitality.  Level 2 classes start to introduce more advanced poses to help take your practice to a new level.

level 2/3

2/3 classes assume that students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures and are designed to enhance your intermediate practice. Poses may be held longer, the classes explore advanced poses are physically demanding and incorporate challenging sequences and variations. Classes are designed to push your practice towards learning more difficult poses and or test your stamina. The pace of these classes is faster, you will allow you to go deeper.

level 3

For advanced yogis that need no demonstration of poses, these classes will be mostly advanced poses and have a vigorous pace. Take these classes only if you have many years of serious yoga study with an excellent degree of yoga knowledge, stamina and flexibility. Level 3 classes are great for self-directed students looking for the highest degree of difficulty.

Hatha

Hatha Yoga is often slower moving than a Power Yoga practice but it can be challenging, stimulating or soft, depending on the circumstances. The integration of breath while holding poses for long periods of time with intention and relaxation comprise this branch of practice that encompasses and integrates many forms.

Iyengar

Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of living yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar (author of numerous books including the definitive guide, Light on Yoga). The method of study of Iyengar yoga is progressive with an emphasis on precision and form in order to maintain a balance between flexibility, strength, and relaxation. Through intelligent alignment, sequencing of asanas and timing in the poses, the practice of Iyengar Yoga can safely lead beginning and advanced students alike to a mindful practice that is absorbed with attention so that the mind and body work together. Oftentimes props are used to allow the practitioner to go deeper in the asana, adapt to an individual's needs, make an otherwise challenging asana attainable, or to provide support. In addition to his many innovations that are utilized throughout the modern world of yoga such as props, B.K.S. Iyengar developed therapeutic and restorative yoga that utilize the practice of asana and pranayama for deep relaxation and healing.

Kundalini

Meditation

Pre/Post Natal

A rejuvenative yet energizing gentle Yoga Flow adapted to the pre and post natal mothers, that emphasizes stability, flexibility and vitality. This class offers mothers a space of relaxation and an opportunity to connect with their babies. Babies are welcome. An excellent preparation for birthing through breath, body and mind awareness.

Restorative

This is the application of Yoga practice using props and postures held for longer periods of time to initiate deep relaxation of the body, mind and
spirit. Slow Restorative Yoga is beneficial to balance a more active practice or decompress after a stressful day.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term often employed to describe a broad range of yoga styles.
Vinyasa can be decoded from its root words Nyasa denoting "to place" and vi denoting "in a special way."

It symbolizes a flowing, dynamic form of yoga, where postures are linked together using breath.


Yin

The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. To balance the heat-building, blood-pumping, strengthening "yang" side of a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga practice, Yin focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Since a Yin Yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system. Pure bliss!
