yoga & meditation
Energetic & Dynamic.
Promotes mental clarity and inner peace.
Beginner to Intermediate
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a flow of sequenced postures linked together through breathing, alignment, gaze, and internal locks. It is an energy-generating practice that cultivates a meditative experience.
There is a set routine of postures that are done in the same order every class.
The Entire Series include warm-up, standing, seated, and finishing poses. There is a total of 6 series in the Ashtanga tradition. Ashtanga I will take you through half of the First (primary) sequence. ASHTANGA II will take you through the entire Primary Series. ASHTANGA III will focus on the Intermediate Series, the second series, and a full understanding of the primary series is required.
Flowy & Heart-Oriented
Improves flexibility and circulation.
Anusara yoga is a modern-day Hatha yoga system. Anusara means "flowing with grace," "going with the flow," "following your heart."
The poses in Anusara Yoga are considered to be “heart-oriented,” meaning that they are expressed from the “inside out.”
In addition, more static and longer-held poses are used to give you the time to focus on the alignment of your body and to focus your breath in a way that empowers you to step into your strength and fullness of being.
The focus on alignment makes even the most challenging poses therapeutic. Students are left with a blessing or a reminder on how to continue to embody the heart theme "off the mat" in their daily life.
Slow-Paced & Meditative
Promotes relaxation and reduces stress.
Gentle Yoga is a practice that is a soothing, all-level class that utilizes traditional Hatha, Restorative, and Qi Gong techniques to alleviate muscle tension and cultivate inner peace.
The meditative practice aims to retrain your nervous system's response to stress and restore balance to energy levels.
Gentle Yoga can accommodate those with a limited range of motion or moderate physical constraints. It is also a great class for experienced practitioners who want to balance their practice with a slow-paced, meditative class.
Conscious & Spiritual
Enhances awareness and promotes deep relaxation.
Kundalini yoga is also sometimes called "yoga of awareness." Starting with a Kundalini Kriya - intended to awaken energy, build flexibility, endurance and awareness then we will sometimes close the class with a beautiful gong meditation.
Allowing the vibrations of the gong to heal your body and bring you to a state of total relaxation. Each ‘Healing Power of Gong’ session begins with light yoga (suitable for anybody).
Then we move into deep relaxation using the symphonic sounds of the gong. The gong is a reinforced vibration that impacts the entire body by releasing stress, unwinding nerves, and bringing the mind to total calm. After the gong, we use primal sounds (mantra) to remind us that the entire universe was built on sound, on vibration.
As you vibrate a particular combination of sounds, you tune into a higher level of intelligence and consciousness.
Gentle, Supportive & Therapeutic
Activates the parasympathetic nervous system.
Restorative yoga is a style of yoga that encourages physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Appropriate for all levels, restorative yoga is practiced at a slow pace, focusing on long holds, stillness, and deep breathing.
As the name suggests, this style of yoga “restores” the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balance.
A key feature in restorative yoga is the use of props such as blocks, bolsters, or blankets. The props help you hold passive poses for longer without exerting or tiring out your muscles. It also allows you to feel comfortable and supported, regardless of your experience with yoga.

Hatha Yoga I & II
Controlled, Approachable & All-Encompassing
Improves inner balance and wholesomeness.
Hatha Yoga I: This class uses a slow and gentle approach to moving, strengthening, and stretching the body. Props such as bolsters, blankets, and straps are used to ease the postures and extend the length of the poses. This approach creates more permanent memory in the muscles used and activates smaller muscle groups. Expect to move slowly and gently as you hold poses for longer, more relaxed periods.
Hatha Yoga II: This class moves through basic postures to focus on breath and alignment and find balance and harmony in one’s mind and body. Modifications for beginners and options for advanced practitioners are provided throughout the class. There will be plenty of time in each pose or sequence of poses for each student to find the appropriate modification. More challenging poses are introduced in a thoughtful sequence allowing individuals to make appropriate modifications for their personal practice.
Rhythmic & Invigorating
Builds strength and flexibility through breaths.
Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath.
Vinyasa I: For yogis beginning to develop their practice, we use a calming breath to guide graceful movements through poses. Postures are sequenced to enable the body’s full range of motion while encouraging increased core strength and stability. This is followed by a peaceful centering meditation.
Vinyasa II & III: This class focuses on awakening the body with invigorating sequences and core strengtheners. Sustained postures are connected by fluid transitional movements (vinyasa) and focus on breathing to create internal heat. Students will find it helpful to have some previous yoga experience before attending class. While the basics of yoga will be reviewed, these classes will focus on expanding each student's current practice by including sun salutations and vinyasa-type elements to the class.
Sustained postures used in Hatha are incorporated to encourage students to focus on their breath and exploration of the body to build strength and ease. Dynamic sun salutes focus your attention, create a rhythm between the breath and body, and release tension. You can expect to explore deeper backbends and twists, more challenging balancing poses, and possibly even basic inversions and arm balances.
