Standing postures, some flow sequences, balances and floor postures all with hands-on adjustments. Great for beginners.
Slow Flow with Yoga Nidra:
Slow flow classes are a combination of deeply held asanas, working on alignment, depth and breath as well as Restorative and Yin postures where we will be finding deep stillness, ease and ultimate surrender. Together, this peace sadhana will focus on preparing the body and mind for a 20 min. Yoga Nidra (guided meditation). Come experience yoga bliss!
Chakra Energy Flow: Chakra Energy Flow is a gentle flow class that focuses on the chakra energies, providing a sense of balance and strength – a stillness that comes with the balancing of this incredible subtle body system. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency and function as a vortex of spinning energy that interacts with various physiological and neurological systems in the body. In this class we will flow with specific intention on a particular chakra through asana, element and color awareness, mantra, and a short meditation. Beginner yogis and advanced practitioners alike would enjoy this practice, providing them a way to access their subtle energies and a better connection with the Self.
Fascia Rolling: Fascia is now considered the largest, continuous organ in the body and consists of many layers of connective tissue that encase every muscle, tendon, bone, and blood vessel, surrounding our circulatory and nervous systems. When fascia is under or over worked, it can become gritty, dry and stiff, causing chronic pain, tight, stiff muscles, headaches, numbness, tingling and loss of mobility and flexibility. Self-myofascial release rolling is like giving your fascia a deep tissue massage, allowing muscle pain and knots to release and hydrating your fascial tissues with fresh, oxygenated blood. This restorative self-myofascial release rolling class uses a non-foam roller and specifically targeted whole-body rolling exercises (the Fascianation Method) to release tension and pain from within your body.
Flow and Recharge: A class to re-ignite intentions and energy levels half-way through the week and throughout the day! Open to all levels of experience, beginners and advanced alike. In this class, you can expect a Vinyasa-based flow starting out slow and eventually working your way into sequences that will bring a sweat, all while focusing on the sacred link between breath and movement. Ending the practice with singing bowls or restorative props and a chance to sink into your mat to recharge, you’ll leave feeling more in tune, more balanced and much more open.
Fluid Power: Based on the teachings of Shiva Rea, Fluid Power is a fast moving vinyasa flow that encompasses your entire yoga mat. Besides a lot of side to side movement, you also move in a circular pattern. These full body movements build strength in the hips and help to tone the legs. In addition to that, the practice builds core strength. This is a sequence heavy class meaning that many postures will be linked together.

Happy Backs: This is the perfect class for anyone who has chronic back pain or an outstanding injury. This class will safely stretch what is tight, strengthen what is weak and allow your body to perform everyday activities with more ease and less tension. Yoga is meant to be a sustainable, life-long and enjoyable practice that ultimately unites the mind, body and soul. In order to make your yoga practice sustainable, we must learn how to create safe practices built on a solid understanding of anatomy and biomechanics and how they relate to movement and posture. This is a great way to balance your yoga practice and rid the body of aches, pains, as well as preventing, avoiding and healing injury.
