Classes

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS. Please note all classes are open to students at any level in their practice.  We use these descriptions as  guidelines, recommendations and references for our students to decide which class best suits them.  It is our intention at the studio to offer a safe welcoming space to practice yoga asana. Clear instructions, both verbal and hands on will help assist students to discover the practice which best suit their individual needs. Please feel free to contact us if you need help in deciding which class may be best for you.

  • Power Flow Yoga—Classes consist of 60 or 75 minutes of Flow Yoga. The physical postures are offered in a flowing style  where we link deep breathe with movement. We combine both standing and seated movements and may include advanced postures such as inversions, arm balances, deep back bends and more. This class will tone and sculpt the muscles of the body and challenge the mind!
    Classes end with a time for relaxation. To be successful in this class physical fitness and some yoga experience is recommended.
  • Vigorous Vinyasa Flow—Come with an open mind and heart ready to experience 60 or 75 minutes of various postures, both standing and seated. The postures are linked with sun
    salutation, again as in all classes, we will access the breath to fully experience our practice. Modifications are offered to help make class accessible to students of all levels.

  • Gentle Flow Yoga—The gentle class offers 60 or 75 minutes of postures more focused on flexibility while still combining an element of strength.  Beginner friendly emphasis is on using breath to move with the postures, and some elements of flow are incorporated. The class ends with a time for guided relaxation.

Arrive with an open heart and mind, leave feeling both energized and relaxed ready to embrace the rest of your day.
  • Moderate/All Level Flow Yoga—a little more challenging  than Gentle and not quite as challenging as Vigorous or Power Yoga. The teacher is skilled to offer modifications to meet practitioners where they are in their practice.
  • All level Flow/Posture Study Join Maureen on Friday mornings at 9am-10:15 am This 75 minute class offers a 60 min all level flow which will contain all the components of a vinyasa flow yoga class where we build on a breath and body synchronized movement connection. Additionally there will be 15 min set aside in each class to study a specific posture in a more in-depth way. Overtime, with consistency, you will gain a deeper understanding of the postures and how to use that knowledge to deepen your practice in a safe and appropriate manner. The emphasis will be on you feeling confident to practice at the level you are at rather than trying to keep up. This emphasis is a big part of our overall yoga practice, living our own life authentically.
  • Alignment Based Hatha Flow– Jeremy’s Sunday 4pm Hatha Flow class is a moderate flow class focusing on alignment of mind and body through breath awareness. Easing tension gives joints mobility, anatomical self alignment leads to flexibility. Stability is cultivated through patient and persistent practice. Poses are held long enough to offer exploration and modification to allow for all levels of practitioners to benefit.
  • Yoga Align and Shine! —Join this class if you are ready to take your physical alignment principles to the next level. The only prerequisite is that you are ready and willing to challenge and stimulate growth within yourself! This class will focus mainly on correct alignment techniques. As Tony teaches the postures in a step by step process, you are given opportunities to assess your condition and stay within the proper level that best suits your development. This is NOT a vinyasa flow style class.
  • Deep Stretch  – Feel tight or stiff? This class will move slowly with longer time to hold each pose, allowing you to relax into each posture. Connect with your breath, bring your focus inward, and make your practice a moving meditation. Come stretch and improve your flexibility, ending with a deep relaxation practice.

  • Yoga BASICS– This class is suitable for all levels of practice, whether a beginner or an established practicioner. Using sun salutations to warm up the body, moving slowly, with intention, connecting movement to breath. Variations and modifications are given to allow each practitioner to make their practice what they need it to be. We often take a pose, break it down, and practice it several times to be sure we know how it feels. We finish with deep relaxation, breathing practice and meditation.

Using techniques designed to safely and effectively decompress your neck and low back, you will experience immediate changes in alignment, balance, and stability. The ultimate goal of the MELT Method is to improve your body’s ability to restore balance in the nervous system and rehydrate the connective tissue, which can, over time, create remarkable and lasting changes. Students often say they sleep better at night, have decreased pain, move with more ease, and generally feel great after MELTing!
  • Restorative Yoga-In truth, restorative yoga is simply that – restorative. It is the centering of your breath and body – aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props we use assist in helping hold postures longer. Therapeutic and relaxing but not necessarily easy.
  • Happy Friday Flow– Audra’s eclectic asana mix featuring a monthly playlist. Class includes intermediate/advanced yoga combinations pulled together in a rhythmic fashion. Be prepared to tune in to your ujjayi breath & engage your core!
  • Vinyasa and Philosophy – This 75 minute class will give an introduction to yoga philosophy while moving through an all-levels vinyasa flow. Each week will focus on a different theme. Using the eight-limbed path, we’ll combine asana (poses), breath, and guided meditation to explore the many ways you can “live a yogic life” on and off the mat.
