flow • Core • Cultivation
Students should feel welcome in any of our classes, regardless of experience. While we have some classes more suitable for those just starting yoga, we welcome beginners to any of our classes. We like to take an all-levels approach to classes and instructors are well trained in the ability to offer modifications to make the practice more accessible or to suggest ways to challenge yourself.

In the tradition of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow is a practice that emphasizes linking movement with breath to still the mind. Flow integrates strength and grace to bring feelings of liberation and bliss. Class opens with a short meditation to focus the mind, followed by a flow sequence to strengthen and relieve tension in the body. Basic postures, taught with safe alignment cues, will make up the flow in this class, with advanced variations being offered for our more seasoned yogis. Class will close with a savasana, deep relaxation of the body and mind. (60-75 mins)
Recommended For: All levels of experience, but beginners are recommended to take an Initial Assessment or Yoga Fundamentals class prior to their first Flow to familiarize themselves with some of the movements.
Movement and Mindfulness
The act of linking breath with movement helps to facilitate a state of presence and mindfulness. A state of mindfulness can be reached in any yoga practice, but this class has a greater emphasis on meditation techniques, purposeful breathing, and simple, gentle movement and postures that can be helpful and enjoyable for any student. (60 mins)
Recommended For: All-levels
In this harmonious flow, poses are guided in a slow manner giving new students time to work on postures and advanced students opportunities to try more challenging holds or variations. Emphasis is placed on taking full mindful inhales and exhales as your move through class. Moving in this slow and deliberate manner, students are asked to connect with their felt sense of being and observe closely the thoughts, emotions and sensations that arise during practice. Class ends with a restful and restorative 10-minutes of savasana. (75 mins)
Recommended For: Beginners, All-Levels

Yin is the feminine, dark, passive, receptive, reflective, withdrawn, cool, introspective aspects of life. Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility while invigorating the energy centers of the body (nadis) to release blockages and increase your energy flow. The primary differences between Yin Yoga and many other forms of yoga is that you are encouraged to NOT use your muscles and passive poses are held for several minutes allowing the body to move beyond the initial 30 seconds it takes the muscle to relax and stretching to occur. Static stretching is excellent to increase range of motion. Yin Yoga is also great for reducing stress in the body and mind. Holding poses without distraction for several minutes teaches us to relax. We begin to release tension that is deeply engrained in our muscles. (75 mins)
Recommended For: All levels experience, athletic recovery, beginners, practicing with limitations

Restorative Aerial Yoga: release, rekindle, refresh
This is our gentle and therapeutic version of anti-gravity yoga. The extra support of a silk hammock allow the body to completely soften, surrender and invert effortlessly. Like classical restorative yoga, this class balances the elements of a slow-paced asana flow, pranayam, and powerful guided visualization enhancing awareness of the internal sensations present in the body. However, a levitated yoga practice reaches muscle groups that cannot be accessed on the mat, providing a deeper dimension into organic exploration in each pose and enhances stretches and twists. Practicing while levitated also calms the nervous system, and boosts the immune system.
Students will enjoy a tranquil candle-lit, mantra-infused practice, grounding their energy while off of the ground. You'll explore how to remain in a meditative mindset while in motion. Students will finish their practice with a magical savasana experience, floating peacefully inside of a silk cocoon.
Recommened For: All levels, but we recommended taking Aerial Basics prior to this class.
