If you are brand-new to yoga, we recommend taking several SLOW FLOW classes before taking the following: FLOW, CORE FLOW, HEATED FLOW


FLOW YOGA

Classes that move through a series of fluid, energetic movements, flowing continuously through sequences of Sun Salutations and standing/seated postures. Emphasis on linking breath to movement, while working to build strength, endurance, balance, and flexibility. Modifications are offered to encourage personal progress as well as room for creativity. At least some experience practicing Yoga is recommended for these classes - this class is not recommended if you are brand new to yoga

HEATED FLOW YOGA

A "Flow Yoga" class where the yoga studio is heated to 85-90 degrees. The added element of heat may allow you to stretch more deeply in your postures, develop better mental concentration or help the body relax during class. At least some experience practicing Yoga is recommended for these classes - this class is not recommended if you are brand new to yoga

CORE FLOW YOGA

A "Flow Yoga" class that highlights postures and movements that engage the entire core. Features both essential and core-centered yoga poses mixed with dynamic movements and repetition.  At least some experience practicing Yoga is recommended for these classes - this class is not recommended if you are brand new to yoga

SLOW FLOW YOGA

A flow-style yoga class that moves more slowly than a regular flow. Emphasis on relieving tension in the body, holding stretches and moving mindfully. A good fit for those who are new to yoga, looking to de-stress or wanting to take a Flow class at a calmer pace.

MEDITATION & SLOW FLOW

A "slow flow" yoga class with an emphasis on mindfulness and meditation. Class flows through a series of movements at a slow pace with extended time for a concentrated focus on your attention and mind. Well-suited for those with stress, anxiety or trouble sleeping.

GENTLE YOGA

A slow-paced class featuring more seated and supported postures than a typical flow class. Class moves through a series of gentle movements connecting your breath to your body, improving relaxation, flexibility and recovery. Especially well-suited for those with pain, trouble sleeping, anxiety or high levels of stress.

GENTLE YOGA & MEDITATION

A "gentle" yoga class with an emphasis on mindfulness and meditation. A slow-paced class featuring more seated and supported postures than a typical flow class. Class flows through a series of gentle movements connecting your breath to your body, improving relaxation, flexibility and recovery. To finish, class winds down with a guided meditation and extended savasana. Especially well-suited for those with pain, trouble sleeping, anxiety or high levels of stress.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

A slow-paced class that focuses on deep relaxation of the body and mind while holding postures passively for extended periods of time. Most postures are deeply supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets to hold the body in positions of ease and comfort. Meditation and breathing exercises are integrated throughout the practice to promote the effects of conscious relaxation. Ideal for those with minor injuries, physical limitations, symptoms tied to stress (tension, headaches, anxiety, high blood pressure, trouble sleeping) or those simply looking to let go and relax.

YIN YOGA

Yin yoga is a slower paced class designed to help benefit joint health, flexibility, circulation, and mental focus. This class emphasizes passive, static postures, held for extended periods of time, with muscles in a relaxed state. This style of practice allows the dense connective tissues in and around the muscles and joints to be stimulated, stretched, and ultimately strengthened.

ANTIGRAVITY AERIAL YOGA

The AntiGravity hammock enables you to do things that would not be possible on your mat. As a moving, shifting, three-dimensional yoga prop, the hammock supports and cradles you while allowing you to push the limits of your yoga practice further than imagined. Throughout class, you can choose to participate in inversions, or just opt for more familiar upright terrain. There will be an opportunity to hold poses and inversions for extended time to allow the body to open while connecting to the breath. This is an open level adult class and options will be given throughout so students can individualize their practice. All levels welcome!

STRENGTH & STRETCH

A hybrid class combining yoga, bodyweight exercise and deep stretching. Class starts with light stretching and leads into yoga movements that integrate bodyweight exercises to build core, upper-body and lower-body strength. To finish, class winds down with a deep, relaxing stretch.

CIRCUIT TRAINING (STRENGTH or CARDIO)
