ADULT CLASSES:

Align and Flow – A flow style class with particular attention to alignment and body awareness. Props are used and time is spent to fine tune the asanas.

Gentle Vinyasa – A nurturing all levels vinyasa practice where movement and restorative poses are weaved together. You will still get a flow, but also a bit more R&R. This class is good for beginners, a more mature age, and postpartum.

Rise and Shine $10 – Wake up and warm the body with easy asana, a simple flow, breath work, and a gentle wind down. A perfect way to start the day out right.

Afternoon Delight $12 – Join us for an hour of play! An energizing, strong, strength building vinyasa flow including laughter, sweat, and smiles. You will also receive an extra long savasana with hands on assist to bask in a true afternoon delight! $12 reduced price

Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga is the physical practice of yoga in which we use body weight and gravity to lengthen the Connective Tissue (which binds bones, organs, muscles etc) using static sinking stillness in poses held for 3-5 mins each. It is more deep than restorative yoga, but equally as relaxing.

Kundalini – Brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan, “Kundalini” simply means energy. This practice is for everyone. Join us for this deeply transformative practice that includes meditations and movements inspired by our breath. Prenatal friendly, no need to have any yoga experience, wear whatever you like, and open to children 4 and up. Drop into your true radiance and get ready for a serious “yoga high.”

Postpartum Rebuild – Post partum yoga is ideal for moms wanting to return to exercise in a safe and effective way, typically around 6 -8 weeks after delivery.  In this class we will focus on rebuilding the core which covers not only the front body but also the pelvic floor and lower-middle back.  We will utilize yoga, pilates and other modalities to emphasize actions that support core strength while also stretching the areas that get tight from sitting and nursing/feeding: the shoulders and legs.  Class will become a community for moms in which to share “new mom” concerns, find support (You are NOT alone!) and resources and ultimately, relax in a final restorative pose. You’re welcome to bring your baby up to 3 months. (you may also want to bring a towel to this class)

Radiant Flow – A little bit Align & Flow, a little bit Gentle Vinyasa, this will be a sweet, fluid, and energized flow for the whole body. Tapping into some restorative love through movement and breathwork, we guarantee that you will walk out of our doors feeling radiant!

Muscle & Flow – A fusion of strength training, cardio intervals, and yoga. During this workout for the body, mind and spirit, you will be guided through creative, flowing sequences with yoga props and resistance bands – moving both on and off the mat. Along with an amazing soundtrack, this is a holistic fitness class designed to uplift and empower you! (Not for our Prenatal ladies and you would want to be further along in your Postpartum healing)

Self Care Sundays – Join us for some Deep Self Care and Sacred Beauty Rituals. What we will explore: Tuning into your body to make space for your Creative Energy, Releasing patterns of emotional stress and mental overactivity. Tuning into your natural animal rhythms. Learning self forgiveness. Learning how to self soothe with your own faculties. Using Breath, Mudras (hand positions) and Mantras (repeating specific sounds) allowing a biochemical transformation. You can then take these practices and make them you own. May you unlock your perception, awakening to your true self. Without the need for “things” to see your Beauty. Find your particular Sacred dance as we weave a new way of self reverence and a chance at Peace on Earth. Open to all those curious and wear whatever you like!

PRENATAL YOGA:

Women carry a deep wisdom that intuitively understands the very natural process of birth. Through reconnecting with this wisdom, we will guide you through a yoga class specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy, interweaving birthing techniques as well as giving therapeutic suggestions to common aches and pains. All levels of experience are welcome.

Prenatal Strength Training: This hour-long circuit training workout will incorporate strength training with resistance bands and body weight, light-to-moderate cardio intervals and core exercises.  You can expect a total body sweat session that will help you get into your best shape during your pregnancy!  These workouts will also help prepare your body for labor & delivery and provide a foundation for your postpartum recovery.  This is an all levels fitness class.

Mama’s Movin (little babes – 4 year olds) – This class is a true free for all! Open to Mama’s with little babies – 4 year olds; this class is for the Mama’s while the little ones romp around. A little bit wild but a grand time for all! BYOT (bring you own toy) and no snacks allowed please.

Kids/Toddler Yoga Series (ages 2-4) – We will explore breathing and yoga postures through creative story-telling, playful exercises, and child-oriented meditations. The 30 minute classes will offer our toddlers a safe environment to play, explore, and experience the wonderful benefits of yoga including centering, self-expression, balance, and flexibility. The classes have been structure to teach our young children frustration tolerance, impulse control, turn-taking and socialization. In addition, the games and stories will help support learning about numbers, animals, working with others, and self-regulation. Parents and caretakers are asked to stay for the session although participation is not necessary (but welcomed). This series typically runs seasonally.

Family Yoga – Bring your kids, ages 4-8, to this fun class designed to introduce the world of yoga through stories and play.
