Class Descriptions

Gentle

If you prefer a more gentle practice, you're a beginner or have some concerns about injury, this class is for you. You will be guided through a complete practice, with modifications, alternatives, and adjustments, but at a slower pace with mostly, basic hatha yoga poses. This experience will also teach you presence through focus on your breath-body connection. By keeping things simple, this class offers more time and space to consciously stay aware of your breath and sensation. This is a perfect practice to discover what mind-body connection and presence is all about. 

Slow Flow & Yin 

​Regardless of your yoga experience level, this class will guide you through a complete practice that will flow & settle in to yin. Slow Flow & Yin work great together. The instruction offers modifications, alternatives, and adjustments that make every pose accessible to every person. Come prepared to practice mindfulness, breathe and move, learn about what it means to be present and find ease in a challenge, and discover freedom and joy on your mat . The practice will close with a relaxation in ‘savasana’ and you will leave class feeling refreshed, at ease, and ready for anything.

Yin

​Yin focuses on the deeper connective tissues in the body: tendons, ligaments, and fascia. In this class, you will be guided through a sequence of floor poses, and sometimes, a few standing postures. They are designed to stretch and oxygenate specific connective tissues, thereby promoting healing, improving range of motion, and increasing flexibility. This practice supports good joint health.  Using mindful breathing, bolsters and other props for comfort and support, each pose is held for several minutes, allowing you the time and space to find stillness, adjust if needed, and release. The benefits are far reaching, and experienced immediately.

 

Dynamic Gentle

This class is much like the Gentle class but with a little bit more movement, more focus on breath work, and guided relaxation. If you are a beginner or simply prefer more gentle movement, then this class is for you. It will guide you through a complete flowing practice but at a slower pace and using mostly fundamental basic poses and pieces of the traditional Sun Salutation. 

 

Prenatal

Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. When a pregnant woman learns how to focus her attention, quiet her mind and relax the jaw (to encourage the pelvis to release), she’ll harness the power of the breath, and be able to ride the wave of every contraction with greater ease. "My preparation helped me surrender to the energy and move with it instead of fighting and struggling against it." Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies.​
