Intro to Yoga: New to yoga or just seeking to rediscover a personal practice? Intro to Yoga is designed to bring anyone, no matter their experience level, to comfortably participate in the true practice of yoga. Starting with basics will ensure that you're building your yoga practice on a safe and sturdy foundation.
Meditation and Movement: A simple formula: 15 minutes of meditation to start, 45 minutes of movement, 15 minutes of meditation/savasana to end. As a heads up, sometimes the class will attempt a challenging movement here and there. Other than that, i’ts business as usual.
Traditional Vinyasa Flow: This class moves through a sequence inspired by the teacher Gokulacandra and is similar to ashtanga vinyasa yoga. By moving with breath through a quite vigorous physical practice, it will create space and movement though the whole body to support the energetic pranayama (breath control) practice and mental meditation practice to finish.
At least one year of prior vinyasa practice is recommended.
Open Vinyasa Flow: Open Vinyasa Flow is a beginner friendly class made to energize, restore, and refresh our mind and body. Each class will offer an opportunity to increase flexibility and strength, to reground, and to get a full body workout. This class focuses on the mindful marriage of breath and movement, subtly reminding us to stay present and connected to our bodies as we practice. Come invigorate your creative spirit and get ready to stretch, ground, flow, and sweat.
Kundalini Yoga: Much more than a system of physical exercises, Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic, powerful tool for expanding awareness. The practice of Kundalini Yoga increases vitality, balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and emotions so we can be in control of ourselves rather than being controlled by thoughts and feelings. This technology combines breath, mudra, eye focus, vibrational healing, body locks and postures in a precise, conscious manner to affect mind, body and soul. Whether you are new to this practice of Kundalini or have been practicing for years, this class will move you to feel strong, healthy, clear, more mentally and emotionally balanced, spiritually elevated and connected to your soul.
Yoga Basics: This slower-paced class is perfect for beginners, re-starters, or anyone who wants to create a strong groundwork for their practice. Classes will include breathwork and meditation as well as yoga postures designed to build strength gradually, to promote mobility, to improve balance, and to enhance overall well-being. There will be a strong emphasis on self-awareness and the mind-body connection. Philosophical and other themes will be explored through a combination of active and more gentle/restorative postures.
Gentle Flow: Come savor in this sweet, gentle practice. This hatha yoga experience allows students to connect the mind body and spirit in a nurturing, relaxing way. Class flows through standing poses, seated stretches, and longer restorative poses. Benefits of a regular practice such can include improved flexibility, range of motion, and energy flow. Come relax your mind and body!
Restorative Slow Yoga: This is a great way to wind down. The class moves through gentle stretches, a few standing poses, pranayama (breath control), meditation, and a restorative savasana, or final relaxation.
