Yoga Class Descriptions

Ashtanga

MODERATE TO HIGH INTENSITY

Intro to Ashtanga yoga (half primary series).  This class will cover the postures in the first half of the Ashtanga yoga primary series. Each class will include sun salutations, standing postures, several challenging seated postures, an introduction to back bending, and the full closing sequence. The sequence never changes week to week, as the practitioner commits it to memory, it takes on a meditative flow.

Hatha

ALL LEVELS

This hatha session is a nice, slow moving, meditative class derived from the Sivananda practice.  What to expect in these classes:  breathing exercises (pranayama), sun salutations, 12 basic poses (you build on through variations of each pose to master them), and final deep relaxation.  This practice is not only calming, but also works on your physical flexibility and mobility.  Perfect for after a workout and also to prepare you for the night.

Morning Flow

ALL LEVELS

Start your day with this moderately-paced flow class to help you wake up, feel centered, and boost energy. In this practice we will work to create cleansing heat in the body and increase strength and flexibility. Suitable for people looking for a well-rounded flow class, including those who are new to yoga.

Soul Shakti

ALL LEVELS

This class will speak to your soul. It integrates yoga styles including anasara, hatha and vinyasa, allowing you to cultivate strength (Shakti), flexibility, balance, and a deep sense of peace. Classes will lead you through an energizing asana sequence while deepening your self-awareness of body, mind and soul. Aside from a strong physical practice, expect elements of breath work, mindfulness, and meditation to be weaved throughout. You'll leave this class feeling empowered, connected, and ready to take your practice off the mat and into your life. Please wear comfortable clothing, bare feet recommended.

Vinyasa Flow

MODERATE TO HIGH INTENSITY 

Vinyasa, the link of breath and movement, creates a flowing rhythm, moving you from pose to pose. The class will emphasize alignment and longer pose holds to build strength and increase flexibility. Each week the emphasis will vary with upper body strength, back bending, forward bending or chest and hip opening.
