Mat Yoga Class Descriptions

Gentle Hatha Flow Yoga:
Slower movements, simpler poses, and modifications are encouraged. This is a wonderful class for beginners, or for those who want a slower pace with more instruction. This is a really nice way to gently introduce yourself to flow yoga.

Yin Yoga Bliss:
The energy represented in “yin” and “yang” is derived from the Chinese Taoist tradition. Our yin side is at peace with how things are with a quiet acceptance, representing our bones and connective tissues. Our yang side strives for change that makes us think we are never good enough, held in our skin and muscles. Deep stretches are held for 3 to 5 minutes, gently stretching connective tissues, leaving you in a wonderful state of bliss.

Iyengar Style Yoga:
Poses are held for long periods of time focusing on physical alignment and posture. Many props are used to assist and support the body in poses, such as blocks, straps, blankets, sandbags, and bolsters.

Hatha Yoga with Pranayama and Meditation:
Simple yoga poses followed by guided breathing and meditation. In Sanskrit, the ancient language of yoga, “pranayama” means extension of the breath. When the breath wanders, the mind is unsteady. But, when the breath is calm, so is the mind.

Aromatherapy Yoga:
Essential Oils are diffused throughout the room to enhance a unique yoga journey. This is a total mind and body experience that incorporates even more of your senses. Essential Oils are known for their uplifting, healing, and calming effects.

Chakra Awareness Gentle Yoga:
Basic yoga postures that flow well together are integrated to nurture the chakras. According to many belief systems (Chinese, Indian, and Western), chakras are the center of prana (life force). They correspond to major arteries, veins, and nerves in the body. The function of the chakras is to spin and draw in this energy to keep the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health of the body in balance.

Ananda Gentle Yoga:
Enjoy gentle yoga poses with positive affirmations. It’s so easy to give compliments and advice to others, yet we often don’t take our own advice. Each pose is paired with its own affirmation, which one practices silently while holding the pose. There is an emphasis on inner awareness, energy control, and a natural state of higher consciousness. The affirmation reinforces the posture’s natural effect on one’s state of consciousness, bringing the mind and body together.

Flow and Restore Yoga:
This is a luxurious yoga practice that is a nice blend of gentle flow yoga and restorative yoga that leaves you feeling deeply nourished. You start the first half of the class with a gentle hatha flow, as you look forward to the second half of the class of relaxing restorative floor poses.

Restorative Yoga:
This relaxing yoga practice uses props such as blocks, straps, blankets, sandbags, and bolsters to support the body. So, you can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. The lights may be dimmed and if it is chilly, you may be covered with a blanket. After you are set up in a pose with all your props, you will hold the pose for an extended period, leaving you feeling open and refreshed.

Free Open Meditation:
This is a free class. It is a time and place for you to come to practice your individual meditation. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to get in touch with your inner self in a calm atmosphere No teacher is provided since this is self-meditation time.

Vinyasa Yoga 1:
A flow yoga class that is a good option for students who want a more physical and athletic yoga practice in preparation to build strength and eventually move onto the vinyasa 2 class. In Sanskrit, the ancient language of yoga, “vinyasa” means to flow. This class focuses on the poses that link the breath and movement through flow sequences, building heat and intensity in your practice. Vinyassa yoga is faster paced, with emphasis placed on the breath and the transition in and out of the poses. Generally speaking, upward movements correlate with inhalations of the breath, and downward movements with exhalations. When you create heat in your body, you can strengthen and open up some things that are going on physically and mentally. Physically, sweat expels toxins and re-energizes your body. Mentally, the synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and helps to release any blockage of energy flow throughout your body.

Vinyasa Yoga 2:
A much faster paced flow class with emphasis on strength and balance. This heat building class will challenge your core and more. We recommend you are comfortable with vinyasa yoga before you attend this class.

Rock & Flow Yoga:

This class flows to a fun and funky playlist. Every class guarantees you will sweat! We recommend you are familiar with the vinyasa yoga before you take this class.

Aerial Class Descriptions

Aerial Yoga 1:
Each hammock is safely suspended a few feet off the floor, about hip height. The fabric hammock is a wonderful prop, much like a strap or block, assisting in body alignment, opening awareness, deepening stretches, and creating spinal decompression. When the spine is more open, pain may be reduced. This class will have a few inversions, that will be optional, but will consist mostly of nice stretches in yoga hatha poses.
