Gentle Restorative Yoga
This soothing practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. Props may be used to support the postures while gently stretching and strengthening the body. Living in a fast-paced world, it can be a relief to slow down, breathe deeply, and fully inhabit the body through mindful movement. With a focus on proper alignment and the use of modifications, this style of practice can accommodate all levels of experience. This class is beginner friendly and open to all levels.

 

Candlelight Restorative
This practice is set in a soothing candlelight environment with soft music. Candlelight Restorative focuses on poses that promote relaxation and restoration to help relieve the effects of chronic stress. The use of props and individual modifications will provide gentle openness to the body with maximum comfort for release and rejuvenation. These restful postures require minimal effort and are held for several minutes, allowing practitioners time and space to deepen and soften. Embrace profound peace, deep relaxation, and rejuvenation of the body, mind, and spirit in this practice.

 

Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a quiet contemplative practice that works deeply into our body with passive longer-held floor poses targeting hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. This practice targets the deepest connective tissues of our body, ligaments, joints, bones and fascia. As you are guided, each pose is held between 3 to 5 minutes using the support of props, soft music and low lights. Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow as we breathe deeply bringing more life force/Chi into the body. If you are tired and craving energy or you’re over- stimulated and have too much energy this is a great class to find balance for both body and mind. Open to all levels

Tai Chi/Qigong Gentle Flow

Pilates Yoga
Pilates Yoga offers a full body practice that balances strengthening and lengthening. The first 20-30 minutes include Pilates movements for core strengthening which prepares the body for greater overall stability. The remaining time offers traditional yoga poses and ends with savasana. All yoga practices benefit from increased stability. Strength and stability work together, having a direct effect on standing and balancing poses. Pilates Yoga emphasizes the benefits of working with opposites: from slower, more static poses to dynamic, flowing movements that add flexibility. This class will vary but it will always include core work in the beginning followed by dynamic yoga poses. This practice is accessible to all levels and will always be geared to the individual needs of its practitioners.

 

Hot Yoga
Hot Yoga is a vigorous practice suited for all levels of students, from beginners to advanced yoga practitioners.

This practice improves balance, strength, and flexibility.

 

Warm Slow Flow
Warm Slow Flow is a slower, more reflective vinyasa flow that leads practitioners through longer holds of the poses in a moderately heated room. Set to soothing music, longer holds and slower transitions allow for greater refinement of alignment and a deeper inner exploration of each pose.

The slower pace can also benefit seasoned vinyasa practitioners by offering strength building and opportunity explore technique in more detail and allow for a deeper experience of vinyasa. The room will be around 80 degrees.
