YOGA ASANA CLASSES
Our yoga asana (movement) classes are designed to light you up on multiple levels of your being, connecting you to your heart, intention, breath, and physical body. Each class will include a centering practice, modifications for various skill levels and capabilities, and the encouragement to connect to your own inner wisdom.
An energizing, all-levels class that connects movement with breath and will get your heart rate up. This class is general in nature, attending to the body as a whole so that each part of you feels activated. Built on the foundations of movement, connection, fluidity, and breath, the poses are woven together with intelligence. Some experience with yoga is preferred since little stopping takes place.
KEY WORDS: GRACE, FLUIDITY, ACTIVATION💦
A structured, mindful movement class with an emphasis on the subtle details of alignment. Perfect for both beginners and for practitioners looking to dive deeper into the postures safely and effectively. This class will focus less on flowing through the poses and more on finding security and stability in the body through proper alignment.
KEY WORDS: STRENGTHEN, DEEPEN, REFINE ⚡
Iyengar Yoga is a standardized system of instruction, which is oriented towards gradual but steady progression, rather than quick results. Use of props to maximize the opening and awareness of the body, providing support to the less flexible, and extra extension to the more advanced student. Students learn to penetrate beyond the physical body to the inner kosas (layers) of mind, energy and spirit, gaining vitality, clarity and calm through the practice.
Perfect for total beginners, or students who want a better understanding. Can be practiced by everyone and in all stages of life.
KEY WORDS: CLARITY, PRECISION 🏹
Restorative Yoga is designed to facilitate inner and outer stillness. All postures are done seated and lying down with the support of props. They are held for an extended period of time to help create rest, ease, and openness. This is a perfect class for anyone looking to slow down.

A moving, introspective meditation. A Meditative Flow will help you release physical tension, calm your mind, and settle your nervous system. With less physical alignment instruction and more focus on rhythm and long-held poses, these classes are designed to create a mental flow state of absorption and presence that arises from linking the changing poses with breath. This class will culminate with a brief, calming meditation to end the class.
