Slow Flow Yoga – All Levels

Perfect if you’re new to yoga, or want a gentle stretch. You’ll explore yoga postures (asanas) from the inside out: using the breath, releasing tension, building strength, and engaging your mind and body. The class finishes with a lengthy relaxation pose (savasana) to release the last of your body’s tension.

Yin Yoga – All Levels

The focus is on relaxing, lengthening, and strengthening your muscles by holding seated and supine poses for longer lengths of time with the help of props. This slow, meditative practice helps to release tension in your fascia (connective tissue), improve your flexibility, and calm your mind.

Mat Pilates – All Levels

Pilates emphasizes technique and form over “going for the burn” and it’s an excellent way to strengthen your core. It helps you to build strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, balance, and stability for other sports and activities – with a much lower chance of injury than other, more strenuous, forms of exercise.

Hatha Flow Yoga – Intermediate

From time-to-time we explore advanced poses in a playful and safe way. To enjoy this class, you should already be comfortable with fundamental yoga poses and possess a reasonable level of fitness.

Core Strength Yoga – All Levels

Strengthen the abdominal, oblique, and back muscles that help to stabilize your body, and that are involved in almost all of your movements. A solid core improves your overall strength, helps keep you injury-free, and gives you better posture and a flatter stomach. We finish with gentle stretching and relaxation.

Teen Yoga – all levels │ 13+ yrs old

Thursdays, Nov 14th to Dec 05th │ 4:45 – 5:45pm

Yoga builds core strength, balance, and flexibility. It’s great on its own, and it helps you cross-train for other sports. It also teaches you how to focus and handle stress and anxiety… in life, and before a game, performance, or exam. In this class, you’ll learn the basic flows and poses, get an introduction to meditation, and learn to challenge your body in a way that’s right for you.

Good to know: Teens 13+ are welcome at any of our regular drop-in yoga classes, but our Teen Yoga class is designed just for you and registration is necessary – no drop-ins or passes for this class. New students must fill out a Health History and Waiver Form and bring it to their first class.

Nidra and Meditation – all levels

Nidra or “yogic sleep” is a powerful, deeply relaxing meditation technique – it is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, and one of the easiest practices to develop. This class is perfect for both beginning and experienced meditators, as well as students looking for a deeply restorative practice.

Nia – all levels

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Classes are done barefoot to soul-stirring music – and no two students’ movements will look exactly the same. It’s an empowering practice for people of all shapes, sizes and abilities, connecting the mind, body, emotions and spirit.  Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves based on nine different movement practices: Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Duncan dance, modern dance, jazz dance, yoga, Feldenkrais and the Alexander technique.
