A gentle, flowing class for yogis of all ages and abilities. Great class for beginners. Ease into your work week with this soothing practice in our beautiful, candlelit studio. Occasionally includes restorative yoga poses, and yoga nidra.
A challenging class that awakens the body/mind connection and brings awareness to how we breathe, this is a flowing style of yoga practice incorporating sun salutes, forward bends, backbends, and inversions that focus on aligning body and mind through the rhythmic movement of the breath. This class focuses on moving toward a state of surrender to the moment and each pose, increasing flexibility of mind and body, and creating a state of renewed vitality and health.
Hatha Yoga classes include poses (asan) and breathing techniques (pranayama). Classes are more of a workshop format, with a specific emphasis in each class. For more information, see our About Hatha Yoga page.
HATHA YOGA, LEVEL 1 & LEVEL 2
Classes that indicate Level 1 are geared for beginners or people with a little yoga experience. Also a great class for someone looking for a little less intensity.
The Level 2 class has little more intensity. Focus on building strength and increasing endurance in the poses. This class will also introduce more advanced postures. Some yoga experience suggested.
LEARN TO MEDITATE
A half-hour class that is free for unlimited class packs or just $5 to drop in. Learn how to quiet the mind with the techniques of concentration and meditation. Perfect for beginners or experienced meditators.
A dynamic, grounding, flow-based class that focuses on connecting the student to their body, breath and the Earth by setting intention, staying lower to the ground, building heat, and focusing inward to the flame at the energetic navel center. Once we've moved the breath and awareness into our lower bodies, the class finishes with deep restorative forward folds, twists and inversions that encourage the body to fully relax and be present during Savasana -- the space in which true healing can begin.
PRANA SLOW FLOW
This deceptively challenging class will focus on pranayama (breathing practices) to maintain a smooth and relaxed awareness of the inhalation and exhalation while moving through flowing vinyasa sequences and holds. When we approach our practice in this way, it becomes a moving meditation so we can focus the mind and concentrate on relaxing in the pose while finding and working our inner and outer edges with the breath as our guide. This class will help you to cultivate inner and out strength and fluidity. Each class will end with Savasana, thus allowing the body to integrate the benefits from the class. You will leave feeling empowered and energized.
POWER YOGA (VINYASA)
Power Yoga is an athletic, vinyasa (unbroken sequence) class. In these classes the postures are all connected with movement; one pose naturally “flows” into the next. We begin with centering, warm-ups, then move into a more active practice. We wrap up with cooling, calming postures, and end with a deep relaxation. Poses flow quickly from one to the other, so a knowledge of basic yoga poses is required.
SOUND SAVASANA (donation class)
This bi-weekly class (dates noted on schedule) will take you into a deeper state of relaxation. Kimberly will use singing bowls and different instruments to create sounds that promote healing vibrations. When the body and mind are fully relaxed, this is when the body can truly heal and repair itself. A typical sound savasana experience will include laying on the floor while being supported by props and blankets as the sound washes over you. All you need is an open mind and heart to experience the benefits of this special class.
WARM ALL-LEVEL VINYASA
An all-level class that emphasizes proper alignment and movement linked with breath in a room that is heated to approximately 80 degrees; intelligent, mindful sequencing of poses that build internal heat and focus in preparation for a full fifteen-minute savasana and meditation practice. All levels welcome, poses will be modified or advanced based on your level of yoga practice.
This Level 1-2 class will be in a warm room (around 80 degrees) with lots of sun salutations and variations on the basics set to grooving music. Emphasis on standing poses and core work. Simple inversions only. Class easily adapted to be less or more intense, depending on what your body needs. All levels welcome.
WARM VINYASA FLOW
A dynamic, flowing class that challenges the breath and mind to work together, creating self-awareness and peace of mind. This class is in a heated, 80-degree room with focus on Ashtanga and Hatha sequences...and extended savasana (final relaxation)! All levels welcome, poses will be modified or advanced based on your level of yoga practice.
WARM YIN FLOW
This class combines an active and dynamic warm up with an organic floor based Yin based practice in a room heated to 80-85 degrees. The dynamic warm up opens up all the major muscle groups so that it is more easeful for the body to maintain longer holds and dive deeper into a peaceful state of release. Yin Flow emphasizes core and transitional movement awareness, intense breath work, and how to engage the mind/body connection to restore and renew the entire being. Options are given so that all levels of students can customize their practice.
WARM YIN/YANG FLOW
It's time to relax, de-stress, and take some time to nurture yourself. Join Vani and Kimberly for this meditative and healing journey that will offer the balancing effects of Yin (passive yoga) and Yang (active) yoga. The class begins with gentle vinyasa Yang Flows and then eases into grounding Yin Asana. Learn how the power of pranayama (breath/energy control) can be used to deepen your practice and enable you to release, renew, and refresh your mind, body, and spirit! The studio temperature will be kept at 80° to help ease you into a state of deeper release.
This class is designed to combine passive and active asanas with pranayama to assist the student in deepening their practice. We will begin with active poses and sun salutations to create heat. Then move into deep Yin poses, using long, passive holds to work to stretch the connective tissues (joints) of the body. Yang poses are the opposite but complimentary of Yin poses. Rather than holding poses for several minutes, you are moving and flowing through the poses to create heat and strengthen the muscles.Class open to all levels.
YOGA FOR TRIATHLETES
Straight up yoga that will help you to become more focused and flexible. No chanting or woowoo; just an athletic but mindful class that targets tight spots like hips, hamstrings and shoulders. There will be plenty of work to build arm and core strength, as well as breathing exercises and mindfulness practices. No yoga experience required.
