Class Description

The Basic Hatha Yoga & Basic Yoga Extra Classes touch on a variety of traditions of yoga.  In these classes the
asanas (postures) are introduced and held for a few breaths to increase strength, flexibility and balance. The Basic
Yoga Extra includes more pranayama and meditation.

The
Gentle Restorative Yoga Class is for those who are aiming to decrease stress, promote relaxation and
passively stretch out their bodies.  Yoga props are used to position the body in relaxing poses that are held for several
minutes.  

The
Yin/Yang Yoga class blends two styles of yoga into one practice, bringing together the benefits of passively
holding yoga poses with dynamic sequences. We will start the practice with the long held Yin poses, calming the mind
and working on the deep, dense connective tissues and joints in the body to increase range of motion and energy flow
before the muscles are warm, then work our way to Yang yoga, a more active practice where in contrast, will work on the
muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina and flexibility. This class will help you let go of your work day and give
you some energy for your evening.

The
Vin to Yin Yoga Class will begin with a Vinyasa practice where we will connect breath with movement and create
heat in the body while we stretch and strengthen our muscles. The second half of the class will focus on Yin poses
which are held longer to stretch the connective tissue helping us to relax into the deepest layers of the body. In Vin to
Yin, we join the two styles to allow some yang movement followed by Yin deeper stretches.

The
Ashtanga Flow Class is an introduction to Ashtanga tradition. The focus of this class will be on the Primary
Series, beginning with Surya Namaskara A & B (Sun Salutations) and the Standing series. It will then move to seated
asanas (postures), backbends and a closing sequence. This practice unites breath with asana and helps develop
strength, stamina and flexibility This is a physical practice that builds heat and can be a challenge, but modifications will
be given  to both the beginner and more advanced student alike.

The
Energizing Lunch Flow Yoga  class will begin with a short centering practice, then move into a vinyasa flow
focusing on linking Ujjayi breath to our movement. Once warmed up, we will use asanas (postures) to help create space
in a different area of our bodies each week. This class will offer an opportunity to re-center and calm your mind and body.

The
Yoga Rhythms...Ready to explore? Rhythms are everywhere in our everyday life. Yoga Rhythms class is a fresh
approach where each week will integrate various rhythms of our essence to our practice including: breath (pranayama),
movement in postures (asana), body systems (physical and subtle), cycles and rhythms of the Moon and Elements,
(yes, the Moon) and some rhythmic musical beats to inspire. This class is suitable for all levels including those who want
to discover some variety in their practice. Creative sequencing will be used to focus on increasing strength, flexibility,
alignment, balance, cultivate mind-body-spirit awareness and connection so that you leave feeling refreshed, renewed
and recharged.

The
Basic Baptiste Flow class focuses on linking pranayama (breath) with movement (the asanas) to establish inner
focus. Classes will begin with a series of Surya Namaskara A and B (Sun Salutations A and B), then move into a varying
sequence of standing and balancing poses, backbends, core work and hip openers. The asanas will flow together with
vinyasas, so be ready to build some heat! This practice will help develop focus, mindfulness and strength as we use
asanas to center and calm our minds and bodies alike.
