Hatha Yoga  (60-75 min)- Hatha yoga classes are available for adults and can be 60-75 minutes in length.  Classes are dynamic and active and based in both the Anusara and Iyengar traditions.  They are perfect for beginners who would like to begin a journey of awareness and introspection.  Hatha classes begin by tuning in, and continue with breathwork and warming up the spine.  Classes  focus on finding alignment while holding asana (yoga postures), breath awareness, foundational anchoring, and directional spiraling of limbs.  Hatha yoga can help practitioners find an alliance of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves as well as assist in finding a grounding centering calm.

 

Shakti Flow/Vinyasa - (60-75 min) Yoga Flow classes are wonderful for all level practitioners who are looking for an incredible meditative flowing experience.  Classes  build heat in the body and are based on a 60-75 minutes long Vinyasa style of yoga.  Yoga Flow classes begin with tuning in and breathwork and continue with a series of Surya Namaskar (sun salutations) to begin warming up the body.  Various postures are then integrated and explored, linking together breath and movement.   Yoga flow enhances shakti,  the creative energy of the universe and we incorporate that powerful energy into our classes as each student develops their own creative practice!

 

Kundalini Yoga/Kundalini Flow (60-75 min) Kundalini yoga classes are based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan who brought Kundalini Yoga to the west.  Kundalini classes are a meditative practice held in a tradition that creates incredible experiences of transformation.  Kundalini yoga is called the yoga of awareness because it works directly on the bodies' endocrine and nervous systems and creates an immediate sense of well being in the moment.  Kundalini rising describes the process of distributing energy throughout the body and increasing the electromagnetic field around the body.  It involves doing meditations and kriyas (specific exercises, moving in and out of postures with breath).  Classes also include mantra(singing or chanting sounds that can help stimulate the pituitary, pineal and hypothalamus glands).  Classes end with Tibetan Singing Bowls.


Prenatal Yoga - (60-75 minute) Prenatal Yoga classes help pregnant women explore their  intuitive wisdom that understands about the very natural process of birth.  Moms can connect with this wisdom, being guided  through a class specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy. Postures are linked with the breath and will lead you to new discoveries, bringing awareness to the mind, body and spirit, and also the spirit of your baby.  Classes are conducted in a calm, peaceful environment and will help strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, exercise the spine and increase overall comfort during pregnancy. Prenatal yoga can also sometimes help alleviate many of the discomforts most women experience during pregnancy such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, back pain and sciatica. A safe, open community allows you to freely discuss any issues, from discomforts and concerns, to the wonderful new changes your body and baby are experiencing.

 

Postnatal Yoga -(60-75 minute) Postnatal yoga classes are ideal for new mothers and their babies and babies (4 weeks to crawling).  Classes focus on strengthening the spiritual, emotional and physical bond between parent and child while helping new mothers regain strength and energy that may have been lost during pregnancy.  Classes specifically focus on rebuilding strength for new mommies in the abdomen, back and pelvic muscles,  releasing tension in the shoulders and neck and opening the chest. Classes also can provide a support system to address common issues and concerns that may arise in this new chapter of life. Using interactive, slow-moving postures the post-natal class also includes infant massage and various exercises that assist the development of your child's motor skills. Post-natal yoga will help carry you smoothly through the busy early months of caring for a new baby.

 

Restorative Yoga (60-75 minute) Restorative yoga is a practice of slowly warming the body up and then holding poses for longer periods of time to dissolve physical and mental tension as well as deeply relax the mind and body. This practice utilizes props to aid the body in releasing tensions by allowing the body an easier way to let go. A restorative practice can help those healing from injuries or recovering from illness. You are invited to experience this wonderful method of self-care regardless of previous yoga experience and this practice helps balance out even the most experienced yogi!
