Yin Yang Yoga

Yin Yang blends two styles of yoga into one practice – the active heat-building Yang with the slow, passive, cooling Yin. Based on the ancient Chinese philosophy of yin-yang representing the duality of all things in the universe, the class is designed to foster balance and harmony between these opposite, yet complementary modes of being. Enjoy the benefits of a dynamic flow combined with slow, deep stretching for a well-rounded, balancing and healing practice suitable for all students of all levels.

Yin & Qi Gong

Yin Yoga is a meditative practice derived from China, the ancient discipline being called Dao Yin, which means “leading and guiding”. Yin focuses on resolving tension patterns held primarily in the fascia, which opens in states of ease and non-doing. Therefore, the body rests in shapes for anywhere from 2-20 minutes, letting structure and gravity open the body “by itself” as opposed to using force or effort. Qi Gong, translated as “energy skill” or “energy breathing” is a standing alignment practice that follows the yin practice to integrate, ground, and direct the released energy.

Intermediate Hatha

Synchronize your breath to movement with this all levels Hatha class. You will become comfortable in learning the classic concepts of yoga asanas, breath, and meditation. Compared to Vinyasa, Hatha moves at a gentler pace and will hold some poses longer than others to provide a deeper stretch and breath focus.

Healthy Joints

This class promotes biomechanical health, also known commonly as joint mobility. During this class, you’ll practice asana using the floor and gravity to neutralize stress and tension in the passive body. You’ll work from your joints, not your muscles, to maintain or return your body to its optimal structure and function. Poses are held for an extended amount of time to encourage the harder tissues to change with continued practice.

Flow Yoga

Synchronize your breath to movement with this all levels Flow Yoga class. You will become comfortable in learning the classic concepts of yoga asanas, pranayama, and meditation. Flow Yoga moves at a gentler pace than vinyasa yoga. In this class you will flow between shapes, all while maintaining the integrity of alignment in postures. Some poses will be held longer than others to provide a deeper stretch with more focus on breath.

Aerial Yoga

Learn how to get acquainted with what it is like to move in some familiar asana with the support of the hammock; learn how to sit into and come out of the silk and be guided through some of the basic Aerial Yoga poses including getting UPSIDE DOWN in a slow, safe and, above all, FUN class setting! All levels welcome. No prior yoga or aerial yoga experience required. Recommended For: New to aerial, or want more time to learn some fundamental poses.

Soundbath

Slow Flow & Sound

This class combines a gentle all levels Hatha flow with sound healing. Sound healing promotes a state of deep relaxation by clearing and aligning all of the energy centers of the body. This practice seeks to illuminate you from the inside out, while restoring balance and promoting a deep state of inner peace to the body, mind, and spirit.

Candlelight Yin

Yin yoga is a quiet, meditative practice with long, deep holding of passive poses. Using mindful muscle relaxation, yin postures target the connective tissue nourishing joints, ligaments, and fascia promoting the healthy flow of chi (energy). The Yin practice is a wonderful compliment to more vigorous yoga practices or activities such as running, cycling, and hiking. The practice is suitable and encouraged for all levels of practitioners.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal yoga classes go well beyond simply modifying yoga poses. The first 15 minutes of class is a discussion around a specific topic of pregnancy or birth, this topic will be addressed through Asana. Childbirth education is seamlessly interwoven through out. This empowers students to continuously learn about pregnancy, the birth process and early parenthood in a very digestible, non-intimidating way. This offers you the chance to learn what coping skills you may gravitate toward. As well as how to use them when you are really experiencing physical and mental discomfort, like in labor and early parenthood.

Each class includes poses that bring balance and alignment to the body with the intention of encouraging your baby into a more optimal birthing position so you may have a more functional, less complicated birth.
