Please contact us directly if you have any questions, concerns, are pregnant, have injuries or are new to yoga. We would love to help you find the right class.
Bliss Flow: Step into bliss in a darkened, candlelit room to melt the challenges of the day away and help prepare you for a good nights rest. In this class you can expect a creative, fun and sweaty Vinyasa flow designed for ALL LEVELS to connect body, mind and spirit. During this practice we delve into mantra, pranayama and asana flowing into a medatative state, finishing with a sweat savasana.
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.
Feel Good Yoga: Need a mid-day pick me up? Class will begin with slow gentle movements, linked to mindful breath, followed by vinyasa sequences that will develop strength, stamina, and flexibility. Each class will also include various yin and restorative yoga postures that focus on finding stillness and conscious rest. Each person will be encouraged to connect to his/her body through movement and breath, focusing on listening to the body and giving it what it needs throughout each class to connect the body, mind and spirit. Classes include verbal instruction, hands-on adjustments, demonstrations and basic principles of yoga philosophy. Open to all levels. Arrive with an open heart. Leave feeling invigorated, nourished, refreshed, peaceful and balanced.
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.
Funky Flow: A sweaty vinyasa class that will challenge you physically and ignite your inner glow. Challenging postures are offered. Beware: Loud music!
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.
Keiki Yoga: Yoga Motion integrates yoga asana or stretching and strengthening postures with a mindfulness curiculum developed by Darcie Peck. These class sessions are designed to increase children’s self-esteem, awareness, coordination, patience and concentration. Children will learn how to warm up their bodies properly with exercises that emphasize breath work, flexibility and strength. They will experience many different yoga styles and movements that will further self-expression and creativity and we will be using meditation in movement props (flow arts) such as poi balls, hula hoops and fun yogic games to challenge the mind. We will also explore art, mythology & yogic philosophy, learning from the foundations of the 8 limbs of yoga (right action, asana, pranayama, relaxation techiniques and meditation). Yoga Motion will improve stress reduction, aid injury prevention, and enhance your child’s overall performance in school, sports and life. Come experience a fun and active class that will center your child and give them the tools to move through life with grace and ease.
Relax & Rejuvenate: Class will begin with slow & gentle movements, linked to mindful breath, preparing the mind, body and soul to relax and rejuvenate in Yoga Nidra – a practice of sense withdrawal & simply being. Studies show a regular Nidra practice has the power to fight anxiety, depression, & stress; regulate blood sugar; improve back pain; ease rheumatoid arthritis; help insomnia and improve overall well being. One study, concluded the practice of Yoga Nidra boosts the production of dopamine by up to 65%. The best news? The entire Nidra practice is done lying down in a super comfortable position, only requiring you to listen. This class is suitable for all ages and levels. So for anyone thinking they don’t have the “yoga body”, or “flexibility” to “practice yoga”, I assure you, you do. You have breath and a body – that’s all you need.
Restorative: Injured? Stiff? Tired? Sore? Restore Relax and Renew yourself! This class is focused on restorative yoga postures, active relaxation, pranayama, and meditation. By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move toward balance. All the postures create specific physiological responses which are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress and dis-ease.
The Sound of Awakening: This is a sound meditation utilizing the Gongs, Crystal and Tibetan Singing Bowls and more. It’s a non-movement experience where you have no other responsibilities other than to lay back, breathe and be open to receive. No experience necessary. Sound vibration is an ancient powerful tool that can help bring balance to the breath, the mind, the body, the emotions and the Soul. The intention for this class is to create a safe space for you to ask questions about the “awakening” process and the many changes going on within your heart/mind. Then you will be invited to lay down (or sit!) and allow the sacred sounds to help you release any tension, stress or heaviness, while helping you to feel empowered and supported in your journey of self-healing, self-discovery and self-creation. Feel free to bring something to cover your eyes, anything to help you feel comfortable laying down and a journal to help you remember your experience.
Teen Yoga Empowerment Class: is designed to inspire and empower the student through self expression and a sense of belonging. For most, young adulthood is an awkward, stressful time. This class is a place where the student can be part of a community that is specific to them. Here students will learn fundamental Yoga postures in a supportive and non-competitive environment while gaining flexibility, strength and focus. This class is designed to build self-esteem and to provide techniques which enable the student to learn how to reduce stress though relaxation and breath work. Classes will explore themes such as body image, choosing positive thoughts and actions, dealing with peer pressure, healthy coping strategies and how to love ourselves by taking care of ourselves. Each class with begin with an asana & pranayama practice followed by relaxation & open discussion.
Therapeutic Alignment: Iyengar-based alignment meets yin/restorative yoga: this combination lengthens the spine, releases tension, stress and discomfort while activating tissues for strength and correct posture. Props are often used. Great for all types of people.
Vinyasa: A dynamic practice linking breath and movement. Vyayama (physical discipline), and asana (physical postures) are connected to create meditation in motion. Classes include verbal instruction, hands-on adjustments, demonstrations, and basic principles of yoga philosophy. This invigorating practice will develop strength, stamina, and flexibility and will often leave the practitioner with an overall sense of well-being.
Yin Yasa: A mix of warming vinyasa and cooling yin to make Yin–Yasa Yoga the perfect practice! Balancing yin and yang through a series of sun salutations and energy building postures to warm the body in the first part of practice. The second portion is dedicated to slower movement, deeper stretches and longer holds to target the connective tissues in the body while preparing for stillness in body and (eventually) mind in shavasana. Classes are tailored to individual needs with modifications and assists provided, as well as guided breathing (pranayama) to increase energy and focus while incorporating essential oils into the practice, if desired. All levels of experience and ability welcome, Namaste.
Yin Yoga: Anyone interested in learning more about or teaching Yin Yoga is invited to attend this class.Yin Yoga is a deep but restorative and meditative style of yoga that can be a powerful antidote to stress and anxiety during our fast-paced, sometimes challenging times. Through long, passively held seated and supine poses and use of bolsters and other props, Yin Yoga helps calm the nervous system, quiets the mind, and gently stretches deep muscle and connective tissues close to the bones and joints where our meridians. Steeped in a combination of Indian yogic, Chinese Taoist and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditative practice, Yin Yoga is a deep and rich practice that can benefit just about anyone, regardless of one’s existing level of flexibility.
Yoga Basics: Breakdown of the postures to help with alignment and understanding, helpful for those new to yoga as well as more advanced students who wish to deepen their technique. Standing postures, some flow sequences, balances and floor postures all with hands-on adjustments. Great for beginners.
