Class Descriptions

All Levels – This class is open to all levels of experience and physical ability. Instructors will provide modifications for beginners and advanced variations for those seeking a challenge

 

Ashtanga Yoga – Ashtanga yoga is a traditional system of yoga consisting of six set series of postures that are designed to be followed in sequence. The first series which will be our focus is known as the Primary Series. This is a challenging practice, but students are encouraged to rest when necessary — gradually building up endurance over time. Although modifications will be given, this is not a beginner’s class.

 

Fundamentals – This is an introductory class. The pace is slower and the effect more gentle. This class is for any student new to yoga or for students less physically active.

 

Gentle Yoga – Gentle Yoga is open to all levels, but especially for those interested in a slower paced class with restorative poses and the use of props.

 

Hot Yoga – An energetic and powerful practice that will recharge one’s batteries as well as cleanse the body and release toxins. This All Levels Vinyasa Flow class that takes place in a heated room (98-100 degrees). Please bring a mat, towel and water, otherwise supplies can be rented from the studio for a fee (Mat rental, $3; Towel rental, $1).

 

Pre-Natal Yoga – This is an on-going course for expectant mothers that focuses on particular postures to aid the mother during pregnancy, childbirth, and post-partum.

 

Power Lunch Yoga– This is an All Levels Vinyasa Class. You are invited to attend for the full hour, or those who have to return to work are welcome to leave early.

 

Vinyasa/Flow Yoga – The word Vinyasa means “to place in a special way,” so the postures are practiced in rhythm with the breath. This flow-style of yoga is an energetic and rejuvenating experience. A posture is held for a counted number of breaths before it flows into the next like a moving meditation. This class is open to all levels, but some prior yoga experience or moderate physical ability would be beneficial.
