Class Descriptions

Vinyasa

Vinyasa (or Vinyasa Flow) refers to the way this style of yoga keeps you moving from asana to asana, linking each pose to an inhale and an exhale. We link movement and breath to help attain balance in the mind and body. In a Vinyasa class, expect instructors to keep the flow of movements smooth and continuous, which is great for helping you stay present. Take that, Monkey Mind!  

A Vinyasa class combines the deep tradition of asana practices with fresh and fun, modern perspectives on body mechanics leaving you feeling stronger, more expansive, and centered after each class. Intensity levels & personal style varies by each unique teacher. This class is designed for all levels. Modifications and variations of poses are offered. 


Vinyasa, Experienced

This is a vigorous Vinyasa style yoga practice designed for students with a consistent practice. Vinyasa refers to the way this style of yoga keeps you moving from asana to asana, linking each pose to an inhale and an exhale. We link movement and breath to help attain balance in the mind and body. In a Vinyasa class, expect instructors to keep the flow of movements smooth and continuous, which is great for helping you stay present. Take that, Monkey Mind!  

Intensity levels & personal style varies by each unique teacher, but classes identified as experienced are best for students with a consistent yoga practice. All levels are welcome to attend class, but expect fewer modifications and an exhilarating pace or sequencing. Students should have a strong sense of their own body and needs. This class is heated between 80 and 85 degrees.


Power Flow & Restore

In this 75 minute class you will find powerful fluid and challenging sequences followed by long restorative postures. This class is structured like an all-levels Flow and Restore class, with a portion of the class spent flowing and moving, and another portion spent deeply relaxing.


Power Flow and Restore is a great way to burn off some steam, and recharge. Perhaps best for those with a regular practice, however self-directed modifications are available, as is our dear friend Balasana (child’s pose).


Flow & Restore

This class is good for all levels, and is the best of both worlds. Expect 30-40 minutes of challenging standing postures paired with Vinyasa style flow sequences, followed by 20-30 delicious minutes of deep stretching and restorative postures. The room will be warm room (80 degrees), and we will immerse ourselves in deep holds, with an emphasis on alignment.

Flow and Restore is an intentional, mindful practice, which allows you to create the space to really connect with yourself physically, emotionally and mentally. Even spiritually.


Yin

To practice yin is to relinquish control—such a novel and therapeutic concept in our modern-day lives. Yin is an introspective practice that offers a chance to turn inward and nurture the calm, quiet center that is innate in all of us. It is a practice in stillness, patience, and non-reactivity. Yin teaches mindfulness, and poses are meant to be performed with little muscular effort. The Yin practice embraces both Eastern and Western concepts: from an Eastern perspective, Yin poses stimulate the meridian lines and open energetic channels within the body; from a Western perspective, when a posture is held for time we apply moderate stress to the connective tissues (tendons, fascia, and ligaments). A healthy amount of stress hydrates and repairs the tissues and can ultimately restore range of motion. Dress comfortably and prepare to feel refreshed and rejuvenate

Through yin yoga we become adept at self-care. We become better listeners with practice tuning in; we become wiser as we get to know ourselves from the inside out; and we become more curious about the world through the exploration of our own inner worlds.

           


Sunrise Yoga

 Join us bright and early for an all-levels Vinyasa class. Vinyasa refers to the way this style of yoga keeps you moving from asana to asana, linking each pose to an inhale and an exhale. We link movement and breath to help attain balance in the mind and body. In a Vinyasa class, expect instructors to keep the flow of movements smooth and continuous, which is great for helping you stay present. Together, we will honor a new day as we energize the mind, body and spirit with thoughtful movement and intention, and a healthy dose of playful joy.


Restorative

This class is great at the end of a long day. Or any time you need to add some ease to your life. Think deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. Restorative Yoga incorporates the use of props, and postures held for longer periods of time, to initiate deep relaxation. It is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching, perhaps just a few postures in the course of class.

Poses are held for long periods of time, and your muscles are allowed to relax deeply, often with the support of props such as blocks, blankets and bolsters. Restorative Yoga is blissful, dreamy and so so good.


Fundamentals

If you’re new to your practice, this all-levels class is great for you.  In fact, every yogi could benefit from a Fundamentals class, because its goal is to help you build a safe, strong and lifelong practice. Our Fundamentals classes move a little slowly, to allow students time to assimilate each pose or instruction, and include detailed guidance on alignment as well as gentle hands-on assists. They are a wonderful way to "re-learn" some of the basic poses and allow you to really focus on what is happening with your body and breath. 

For new yogis, this class is the best way to begin a healthy yoga practice. Starting with the basics gives you the tools, guidance and confidence you need to move forward with your practice.
