Classes

Vinyasa Flow Yoga [All Levels]
For those with less than 6 months of yoga experience or simply looking to refresh their basic technique, this ongoing class moves at a slower pace and helps the student achieve confidence to progress systematically. Clear and approachable instruction is given covering basic beginner poses, including standing poses, seated poses, forward bends, simple backbends, and twists. Breathing and relaxation techniques are also presented. Class Duration: 90 Minutes

Strong Vinyasa Flow Yoga
A lively and flowing sequence of poses coordinated with breath.  Classes are gauged by the experience in the room.  Sequences may include deep twists, arm balances, and inversions. Class Duration: 90 Minutes

 

Nia
Nia is a dynamic movement practice that combines the dance arts (Modern, Jazz, and Duncan dance), the healing arts (Yoga, Feldenkreis, and Alexander Technique) and martial arts (Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and Tai Chi) – medicine for the mind, body and soul.  Playful, inspirational, and unique – this practice brings your heart rate up, opens your mind, and purifies your entire being. Class Duration: 1 hour

Yoga for Healing
A fusion of yin, flow, and trauma-releasing yoga asanas. Classes typically begin with a brief healing meditation and/or breathing exercise. We then access deeper tissues through specific poses designed to promote emotional healing; from there, we begin building a flow sequence, creating heat and strength, and finally transitioning into a set of 7 trauma-releasing exercises aimed at providing a healing, emotional release.

Candlelight Yin Yoga
A vital part of any yoga practice. Yin yoga includes 7 or 8 poses which are held for a substantial amount of time (5-7 min), allowing students to access connective tissue necessary for flexibility, range of motion, and graceful aging.

Yoga for Clarity (Flow and Arrow Yoga)
Flow yoga punctuated by exercises specifically designed to move students out of their verbal left brain, and into their more intuitive right brain. Students begin class with a question, seeking direction, or insight, and by the end of class have stimulated parts of the mind that are more intimately connected with intuition, and creative thinking, allowing for a more profound sense of clarity surrounding their initial inquiries.

Vinyasa Yoga en Español (bilingüe/bilingual)
Vinyasa es conectar movimientos corporales con la respiración. Con la respiración como el motor mezclamos posturas tradicionales de astanga con nuevas posturas creativas para crear una secuencia fluida y agradable. Empezamos con ejercicios de respiración/meditación y sellamos la práctica con un cant para unirnos con las vibraciones universales. Clase que se enseña en español y en Inglés.

HIIT 
HIIT stands for high intensity interval training- which is exactly what it sounds like. With constantly varied, high intensity functional movements, HIIT builds muscle while simultaneously burning fat. The class incorporates fierce bursts of cardio, core, and strength work. There will be modified versions of each move for both beginners and advanced athletes. HIIT gives you the power the really push and challenge yourself and the others around you. Stay strong, you never know who you’re inspiring!  Bring a Towel – you will sweat.
