CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


Vinyasa Flow - This moderately-paced class emphasizes linking breath with movement as we flow through a series of yoga poses to strengthen the body, improve balance, increase flexibility and calm the mind. Translated from Sanskrit, vinyasa means “connection.” Vinyasa Yoga synchronizes movement with breath which helps the practitioner develop a greater sense of self­-awareness, balance, and harmony with themselves and their environment. Each class is unique, but may include the many variations of Sun Salutations as well as standing postures, inversions, backbends, twists, forward bends, and deep relaxation. This class is suitable for all levels, and runs one hour.

Gentle Stretch - Gentle Stretch is an all-levels class that focuses on stretching the body to improve flexibility, decrease muscle tension and improve range of movement. The stretches are performed statically (no bouncing) and slowly flow from one to another. Class runs approximately one hour.

Power Flow -For those students with an established yoga practice and an understanding of vinyasa flow yoga, plan to challenge yourself with an hour of dynamic, strengthening vinyasa flow yoga.  The music playlist is often modern and lively. Be prepared to work, sweat and have fun! 

Yoga for Strength - This creative vinyasa practice is intended to cultivate a deeper sense of awareness and concentration, while building functional strength in the body. In this class we will sculpt and tone every major muscle group in the body by combining traditional vinyasa yoga poses with light (2-5 lb) hand weights, as well as bodyweight training. Build bone density, tone up legs, arms, shoulders and core - and leave class feeling strong, centered and refreshed to start your day. Class runs one hour. 

Inferno Pilates  - Inferno Pilates is a 60-minute training system which combines Pilates principles with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) set to music. It is an intense, full body workout designed to strengthen muscles, improve flexibility, and improve overall health.  It is performed in a moderately heated room on a yoga mat making it zero impact, protecting your joints and muscles.  It is designed for all fitness levels.

Restorative Yoga - We are pleased to invite you to enjoy a blissful experience at the end of your week with Restorative yoga! Restorative yoga is a supported, conscious body/mind relaxation practice. With the help of props (such as bolsters, blocks and blankets) the body relaxes and opens, releasing tension and stress. Restorative poses offer benefits to both the body and mind.  Students will hold a small number of relaxing poses for extended periods of time to enjoy some deep, meditative time and stress relief. Class runs 60-75 minutes, and all levels of yoga experience are welcome. 

Dynamic Flow - A beautifully-sequenced, moderate flow practice linking breath and movement. This class refines the body while increasing strength, flexibility and balance. Class runs one hour. 

Slow Flow - This class offers a slower-paced vinyasa flow, often with sun salutation sequences to warm up the body - and always with suggestions for modifications and focus on proper alignment. Perfect for those newer to yoga, or those who desire a slower-paced yoga practice in a supportive environment. Set to a background of relaxing music, this class is sure to leave you with a feeling of pure bliss! All levels are welcome and class runs 60-75 minutes.

Gentle Yoga - Deepen your yoga practice with this gentle yoga class. We begin our practice with a focus on the breath to quiet the mind. Slowly we begin to incorporate light movement to awaken and expand the body, followed by a slow sequence of yoga poses designed to gain strength and balance. Class winds down with relaxation to calm and restore the body and mind. All levels of yoga experience are welcome. This class may offer the experience of enjoying the benefits of essential oils. Class runs 60-75 minutes. 

Yin Yoga - Slow down with this quiet practice that targets the deeper connective tissue with the aim of increasing circulation and improving overall flexibility. The practice of yin yoga provides the perfect balance to your active (yang) yoga practices and your busy life. Focusing on long-held floor poses combined with breath work and meditation, yin yoga is helpful in relieving tension in areas such as the hips, pelvis, and low back. Poses are held for anywhere from 3-10 minutes with very little muscular engagement, often supported by props. Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to stronger, more dynamic exercise such as running, walking, hiking, and cycling. This deep practice is gentle, yet intense, helping students not only to open the body, but also to cultivate the ability to observe and stay with sensation. All levels of practitioners are welcome. Class runs 60-75 minutes. 

Rise+Flow -  An energizing, early-morning moderate flow class designed to prepare the body and mind for the day ahead.  Class runs approximately one hour.
