Seva Flow

An energizing, all-levels class that connects movement with breath and will get your heart rate up. ​This class is general in nature, attending to the body as a whole so that each part of you feels activated. Built on the foundations of movement, connection, fluidity and breath, the poses are woven together with intelligence. It is appropriate for beginner to advanced students, yet some experience with yoga is preferred since little stopping takes place.

yoga basics

Appropriate for those new to the practice or those who prefer alignment-focused, slower -paced classes. In this class you’ll focus on the foundational poses of yoga that build strength, balance, and a spacious spine.

meditative Flow

A moving, introspective meditation. A Meditative Flow will help you release physical tension, calm your mind, and settle your nervous system. With less physical alignment instruction and more focus on rhythm, these classes are designed to create a mental flow state of absorption and presence that arises from linking the changing poses with breath.

mindful alignment 
A mindful movement class with an emphasis on the subtle details of alignment. Perfect for practitioners looking to dive deeper into the postures safely and effectively. This class will focus less on flowing through the poses and more on finding security and stability in the body through proper alignment. 
Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga is a standardized system of instruction, which is oriented towards gradual but steady progression, rather than quick results.  Use of  props to maximize the opening and awareness of the body, providing support to the less flexible, and extra extension to the more advanced student. Students learn to penetrate beyond the physical body to the inner kosas (layers) of mind, energy and spirit, gaining vitality, clarity and calm through the practice. 

 

Perfect for total beginners, or students who want a better understanding.  Can be practiced by everyone and in all stages of life. 

Restorative Yoga

This class invites deep nurturing, receptivity, an internal inquiry and slowed down pace. Restorative yoga is done seated or lying down. No standing sequences are offered. The use of props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps gently eases one into opening the energy over an extended period of time. A total of 5-8 poses will be introduced in each class along with the possibility of breathing exercises and/or a short meditation.

Created especially for those under stress, in need of slowing down, for those in deep processing or in need of internal balance, for beginners, for those with injuries, special needs and trauma. Please come restore and renew with us.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a relaxing, meditative practice that consists of long held static poses. We support the body to allow the muscles to relax and connective tissues to be affected. The long held postures also allow time for relaxation and focused attention to sensations in the body. The benefits of yin yoga can include increased range of motion, relief from joint pain, decreased anxiety and more restful sleep. Yin yoga is a beautiful practice to begin to cultivate a healthy dialogue between the body and mind.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, works with the energy of the subtle body, soothes the nervous system, and helps the endocrine system function optimally. It is a raj yoga with a focus on meditation. During each class, students will practice pranayama (breathing exercises), kriya (series of targeted actions), and deep relaxation (savasana). Together, these prepare us for meditation. The teacher holds space for each student’s personal experience and supports the practice by suggesting modifications and props while encouraging students to express their own perfection of each asana. Since students follow their own individual internal, divine teacher, Kundalini is appropriate for all levels and abilities.
