Intentional + centering yoga
Enhance your practice through this intentional, centering style of yoga teaching. Hatha yoga will provide you with ample opportunity to stretch, unwind, and release tension while being coached through yogic breathing techniques. Emphasis is placed on mindfulness and alignment of the body for an intentional, safe experience. Poses are both sustained for brief periods of time and sequenced for a great introductory yoga experience.
Synchronize your breath to movement
Vinyasa synchronizes movement to the breath: the Sanskrit is literally translated as meaning “connection,” channeling the power of breath and flowing movement. Often, this style is referred to as “flow yoga” because of the smooth way that the poses run together. The breath becomes an important component as you move from one pose to the next with an inhale or upon an exhale: rarely is the body still.
Vinyasa is both a great place to start for beginners and for those who seek continual challenge. Your synchronized breathing as you flow through the Sun Salutations will relax your mind and release any blockage of energy flow throughout your body.
Strengthen your intuition + deepen your understanding
This beautiful “moving meditation” class provides students time and space to strengthen their intuition and deepen their understanding of what it means to be an embodied human being. Using the principles of viniyoga, sequences are designed to move the spine in all directions. Students are encouraged to adapt the postures to fit the unique needs of their body.
Meditative Yoga will help you learn to move from a strong core, to identify and alleviate unnecessary tension, and to breathe in a way that strengthens the parasympathetic nervous system. Going beyond asana, every class involves mudra, mantra, pranayama, stillness, meditation, and teachings from the wider scriptural world of yoga. You will leave this class feeling deeply nourished in your physical body, energy, mind, and in your spirit.
Be present and rediscover your quiet space
If your body and your mind tell you that burnout is on the horizon, you might give restorative yoga a try. Restorative yoga is intended to take the mindfulness that is found in all disciplines of yoga to the next level. Still and slow, it emphasizes mind as much as body. This gentle centering of breath and body – aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness for extended periods of time – will allow you to experience peace, serenity and restfulness.
In restorative yoga, props are used to support the body so that you can hold poses longer, allowing your body to open through passive stretching. Restorative classes are very relaxing complement active practices very well. This relaxing style will leave you feeling open and refreshed. With lights dimmed, the instructor may utilize color therapy, essential oils or sound therapy to enhance your restorative practice, allowing for more productive rest improved sleep quality.

The instructor will verify your physical alignment in each pose and offer small adjustments to ensure you are truly inside of each asana.
