Flow Yoga

Gentle Flow Yoga
Slower paced flow practice that moves dynamically with the breath. Focusing on self-care and nurturing the physical body, this class uses props to move safely into poses at a slower and mindful pace. Perfect for a beginner looking to dip their toes into yoga or an experienced yogi looking to slow things down.

Flow Yoga
A vinyasa-based class focused on linking breath in a continuous flow of movement.  This class builds heat and cultivates focus, stamina, endurance, strength and flexibility.

Aligned Flow Yoga
This class challenges the physical body and the mind through a precise, mindful and dynamic flow of yoga postures. Detailed alignment helps students delve deeper into their practice.


Gentle Yoga / Somatic Yoga

A gentle form of exercise designed to assist you in releasing patterns of pain in the body. Somatic Yoga has been strongly influenced by the Feldenkrais Method, which is used to improve human functioning by increasing self-awareness through movement. 

Somatic Yoga helps bring about easier movement which translates to greater comfort in performing everyday activities at work, home, and in your yoga practice. 


Restorative Yoga

A class focusing on the practice of poses that help to deeply relax the body, relieve stress and bring a sense of calm and well being. This class incorporates the use of props to create support for the body to open. Poses are held for extended time.


Yin Yoga

A powerful practice which targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each yoga posture is held to encourage a slow and safe opening of connective tissue, leaving the practitioner with an overall feeling of lightness and peace. Yin Yoga is the perfect antidote to stress and a great compliment to other activities like running, weight lifting, and more intense yoga practice.


Pranayama

A practical class that will include some of the basic techniques of both seated and reclining pranayama (yogic breathing techniques). 6 months of yoga experience required.

(Please note you may not arrive tardy for this class.)
