Class Descriptions

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.

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 pre crawling baby (typically 6-8 months)

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)

Restorative — A calming and nurturing practice where props are used to support and soothe the body and mind.

Sound Bath Meditation – This class is a Feast of Vibrations, using soothing tones and sound energy of Gong, crystal bowls, handmade Tibetan healing bowls and Voice. The power of Sound Healing is a profound way to connect with the Self, Spirit, Community and Universe in a palpable way. You will find deep relaxation but also experience clarity in sensation, emotion and thought after this meditative & receptive class. Receiving and tuning in to these vibrations will elevate your awareness. You’ll find connection & focus, while quieting the negative mind. Physiological benefits to sound therapy include decrease blood pressure, boost immune system, improve sleep & decrease anxiety. It only takes 90 seconds to completely reorganize the mind and body in a natural and healing way. Imagine a whole hour of magical transformation! This class usually runs once a month on Sunday evenings.

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.

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. | Prenatal Release Form
