Class Description

Gentle Yoga Flow:

A vinyasa flow class held at a slower pace. Incorporates foundational yoga postures linking poses sequentially and teaching you how to breath and move through each one. Suitable for beginners and beyond.

Gentle Yoga:

A class that moves at a more leisurely pace with a strong focus on breathing to encourage more mindful measured movements. While movements are gentle and low-impact, they may include standing and seated postures as well as reclined to help you release tension and fully tune into your body.

Sunrise Flow:

A beginner friendly early morning dynamic flow class to ease you into your day. Start with gentle movements to warm up and awaken your body, and bring in mental clarity as you connect breath and movement. The intensity of the flow will increase gradually helping to increase overall energy, flexibility, and strength. Wake up with the sun and greet the opportunities a new day brings in this well-rounded class.

Lightspace Flow:

A well balanced flow class suited for beginners to more seasoned practitioners with modifications offered and welcomed. Moderately paced and flowing smoothly from one pose to the next to allow for the coordination of movement with breath, and let you get out of your head and focus on your body. Expect to be challenged both mentally and physically.

Yoga for Core Strength:

A more vigorous class with a combination of movements and exercises to awaken the core muscles, which are incorporated into a vinyasa flow.  You will get your heart rate up.  A fun, lighthearted, more challenging class that aims to let you explore your endurance, strength, and ability to be in the moment.

Align and Strengthen:

Suited for pure beginners or those who want a refresher on body alignment in yoga. Movement is slower with an emphasis on learning where to place your feet and hands and which muscles to engage and strengthen. The goal is for you to come into each pose in a way that is both safe for your unique body and best suited for you to build and maintain strength and flexibility.

Align and Flow:

A vinyasa flow class held at a moderate pace. Suitable for those with some experience in yoga who like to flow but prefer a little more detailed instruction. You will move evenly from one pose to another while receiving a limited amount of verbal cues to help you move more comfortably and with strength and grace.  

 

Yoga with Props:

Using a chair, blocks, and yoga straps as an extension of the body, you will explore a variety of seated and standing postures to build strength and improve flexibility. These props will help you come into better body alignment and bring you deeper into familiar poses. An invigorating and energizing practice suited for all levels.

Breath Balance Core:

Appropriate for pure beginners and beyond. Using the breath as an anchor and yoga poses as tools, we will work on strengthening core muscles with the aim to improve balance and help you move around with more ease. Through the reinforcement of repetition you will slowly build confidence from pose to pose and class to class.

Sunday Stretch (Restorative)

A gentle restorative practice to help alleviate stress and settle the nervous system.  Yoga props such as blocks, bolsters, blankets, and chairs will be used to help you get into each pose comfortably and better gain the benefits that each one offers. Poses are generally held for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the body to open and the mind to settle into stillness. Appropriate for all levels.

Yoga for Seniors

A class geared specifically towards seniors age 65 and beyond that recognizes the evolving needs of more mature bodies. Uses directed breathing to induce relaxation and decrease stress, measured mindful movement to help maintain and improve general flexibility and joint mobility, and gentle strengthening postures for better core strength and balance. All ages welcomed.

Midweek Restore

A calming practice meant to still the mind and allow the body to open through passive stretches. The class begins with 10 to 15 minutes of gentle movements to stretch the muscles and encourage release. The rest of the time is spent in several poses each of which are generally held for 10 to 15 minutes with the use of props including bolsters, blankets, and blocks to fully support your body and encourage softening and relaxation. 

Yoga with Weights

A class that incorporates light hand weights in a traditional yoga flow practice to provide a mild increase in resistance that not only heightens muscle awareness but can help build bone density and strength. Perfect for the yogi who hates to lift weights but wants to incorporate some strength training into their practice. This class moves at a slow to moderate pace coordinating movement with breathing to help get you out of your mind and into your body.

Happy Hour Flow

An uplifting flow class to get your weekend started feeling energized and de-stressed. You will move at a moderate pace flowing with the breath to warm up the body and calm the mind. Come decompress and rejuvenate yourself from the week as we mobilize our joints and build strength and flexibility.
