vinyasa flow (all levels)
Vinyasa means literally the connection between breath and movement. All classes synchronize movement with breath, creating a practice that is flowing, intense and athletic. An amazing and challenging workout, Vinyasa Flow is a moderate paced class that allows for simple modifications to find your ideal practice and edge. Come experience the benefits of this fluid and dynamic class. You will feel the changes in your body immediately.
Designed for the beginner, or perhaps someone coming off injury and trying to get back in the Flow, yoga basics provides the fundamental building blocks to a strong practice. With greater teaching to poses, the flow is considerably slower and incremental. As you build upon your yoga practice, you will find the flexibility and strength to push your basics class to new levels. With an emphasis on the benefits, and necessity, of your breath in yoga, you will become aware of your body and understand how to maximize poses to fit your practice. Like anything, allow yourself several opportunities to experience Yoga Basics so as to fully understand how yoga will work for you. Without exception, it will be transformative.

All ages and levels benefit from a weekly Yin practice. Yin yoga targets deep connective tissue, fascia and joints, and helps regulate the flow of energy or prana in the body. Though meditative in nature, Yin is not a restorative class. Floor-based poses are held from 1-5 minutes to target all areas of the body including hips, spine and shoulders. It provides balance for those "yang" activities like vinyasa, running, biking, and cross fit, and can improve flexibility for those who want to stave off the aging process--keeping joints and deep tissues supple and flexible. Yin is adaptable and works for all body types and all ages. Props and supports are provided.
Meditation is an integral part of the path of yoga. When we meditate we connect to ourselves in a deeper way, we find presence and peace in the mind, and we develop resiliency so we are better prepared for whatever life may throw our way. Come learn how to develop or deepen your meditation practice and experience the benefits in a warm and welcoming group environment.
