Suitable for all levels. This class is a strong, fast-paced class designed to build heat and strength. This practice is a total body workout that creates longer, leaner muscles and a body with more mobility to improve circulation. We recommend that students seeking to take these classes feel confident, safe, and strong throughout classic sun salutations. Vinyasa classes explore complex movements, transitions and sequences including arm balances and inversions layered over solid foundations. These classes may incorporate deeper backbends, hip openers, twists and forward folds. The teacher will encourage rest periods and offer modifications as needed.
Slower is stronger, while this is not a gentle vinyasa, it is suitable for all levels of practitioners. The center of this class is a deep, slow-flowing vinyasa practice. We focus on using your breath to guide you through asanas (poses). By timing your breath with the movement, moving at the rate of each inhalation and exhalation, we connect the mind to the body and the body to the breath. The slower pace allows you to remain mindful of your movements, and to truly explore your body from the inside out. As we take time with each posture, we remember those sweet spots, and those tiny variations we found while hanging out in a pose. You will leave this class feeling replenished, awake and renewed.
Ashtanga Yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures, a process producing intense internal heat and purifying sweat that detoxes the muscles and the organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body and a calm mind. Usually, an Ashtanga practice begins with five repetitions of Surya Namaskara A and five repetitions of Surya Namaskara B followed by a standing sequence. What then follows is one of six series and then a closing sequence.
A great yoga class for beginners. We focus on building a solid foundation for every student. This class involves intelligent sequencing with a focus on alignment as you flow through each movement along the natural flow of your breath. Join us as we give you an inside and educational look into building the basics of your yoga practice.

Let the upbeat music guide your flow in this dance inspired vinyasa class.

This class will be both challenging and fun, focusing a lot on the core to stabilize the body while using the beat as a guide for repetitions and breath. Bring your best attitude and leave your “cool” at the door because it’s all about looking silly and feeling good.
Hot 26 is a Bikram inspired class, teaching a set 26 postures and two breathing exercises practiced in a heated room. Hot 26 is the same sequence every class so you can develop awareness and appreciation for how you develop and grow both physically and mentally throughout your practice. Each posture of the sequence accomplishes something different in the body and they all work synergistically to help the body perform at its best. The postures are taught in stages so they are accessible for all levels but the intense heat makes it a very challenging class.

Kundalini Yoga concentrates on building core strength to increase both stamina and self-confidence. We will practice a particular Kriya (set of exercises)–as designed by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga–combined with strong Pranayam (breathwork), followed by deep relaxation and ending with a meditation designed to go inward while still working on core muscles. The teacher will offer modifications and brief rest periods, accommodating all levels. [Optional: There will be some chanting. In Kundalini Yoga, utilizing one’s voice is a part of building confidence and increasing core strength.]
