Slow Flow:  Still challenging but slower flowing with fewer postures than a regular Vinyasa flow class, more emphasis on alignment, breath and foundations tools of a yoga practice. All levels welcome.

Ashtanga Yoga:  Ashtanga is a set sequence of postures linked together with Vinyasa , or flow of movement, in order to build heat in the body.

The set sequence is a consistent flow of dynamic movement designed to stretch and strengthen your body and to allow breath and energy to flow through your body easily.

SanskritYin Yoga:  Yin yoga helps stretch the connective tissues of the body. The practice is quiet and passive; it has a quality of stillness. The poses are held for a longer period of time which can be very meditative and calming allowing your awareness and breath to be directed to a particular part of the body and keeping your joints mobile and helping regulate the flow of energy in the body. This type of practice is beneficial to all levels.

Yin/Yang/Yin: This class combines two seemingly opposite, yet complementary styles of yoga.  Through a practice of stillness and motion, ease and openness is found in the body.

The class begins with a few seated or reclined Yin poses to soften and calm the body and mind into a state of receptivity.  From there, students transition smoothly into more active, dynamic, breath-led Yang postures to build strength and balance, still geared to those preferring a gentler practice. The class then moves effortlessly back into Yin, preparing the body to receive the healing benefits of an extended Shavasana.  All Levels.

Restorative Yoga:  A gentle, meditative practice that uses props to fully support the body in each pose. This allows the body to completely relax, revitalize and restore energy as well as release tension.
