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.

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.
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.
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.
Power Hour Flow:
A 60-minute vinyasa flow for students looking for a high intensity, sweaty practice. This class will incorporate traditional vinyasa movements with core training. Make the most of your time with this 60-minute power hour practice.
