Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to touch your nose to your knees, slide into the splits or press into a handstand? In reality, most of us have issues with mobility (flexibility) or stability (strength) that keep us from accomplishing these amazing feats. In this class we will explore and work to improve deficits that hinder our body’s ability to move safely, whether it is in everyday life or in advanced yoga postures. And no, we probably won’t ever get into some of those advanced postures, but we may inch closer toward them. This class is for yogis with some experience already. (Wednesdays at 10:30)
Not Your Daughter's Yoga
Not Your Daughter's Yoga refers to a "brand" of yoga that is geared towards a more mature body and respects aging joints and varying degrees of flexibility. Open to all levels, we will cover traditional sun salutations, standing, and seated poses, with each class offering a slightly different approach. Relax with a deep savasana! (Fridays at 9am in the Zen Room-center "Z" shaped space)
A combination of gentle poses to warm the body, followed by gentle twists and restorative poses. All levels are welcome, especially those new to yoga. (Thursdays at 4:00pm)
You will stretch and strengthen the body gradually. We will emphasize the breath and body working together in unison. Practice is a slower pace with attention to alignment. (Sundays at 7:30 and again at 9am)
This class is similar to Gentle Yoga above, but has more focus towards flowing from one pose to the next following the breath. (Wednesdays at 9am)
"More Yin, please"
In Yin Yoga, we stretch deeply into poses and hold poses for a longer period of time, a few minutes to allow deep tissues to relax and stretch. This class is often relaxing while we work on the deep ligaments, tendons and connective tissues. Focus will be on letting go to go deeper into poses and honoring your body with respect to your own body's limits. (Sundays at 4pm)
Seriously, I'm a Beginner
Exactly, what it sounds like. This class builds from the beginning of the month to the end. However, you can come all 4 weeks or start anytime you would like. Choose between purchasing a 4-week series ($50) or as a drop-in ($16). This class was named after countless calls and emails with the prospective student asking, "Seriously, I'm a beginner which class should I take?". We will practice and discuss proper breathing for yoga, alignment, and build into downward Dog and Sun Salutations week by week. (Wednesdays at 7pm)
All About the Basics
This class is perfect for the beginning yoga student or anyone who wants to focus on the foundation of the yoga poses and the breath work. This is also a logical next step when the "Seriously, I'm a Beginner" Student wants to step into the next level class. (Mondays 7:00pm)

Go with the flow

This Prana Vinyasa class is invigorating yet suitable for all levels. The aim is to open the flow of vital energy in the body through asana (postures) and breath work, with an emphasis on breath and movement. The class flows through gentle warm ups, pranayama, and asana sets that prepare students for focus on a peak asana. The second phase of class is focused on deep opening and releasing postures, relaxation and preparation for savasana. (Wednesdays at 5:30pm)
Rise & Align (Tuesday)
Chakra Balancing (Thursday)
These are sister classes at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Come to either or better yet both and build your morning yoga practice from the foundation up. Start with a morning practice and shine on the rest of the day. (Tuesdays at 7am)
Chakras are energy centers in your body that affect you physically, emotionally and spirituelly. This class uses yoga poses, visualization and breathing techniques to help you bring balance to each of the chakra locations in your body. We start in a seated position and move up through each of the chakra locations. I will take you into poses where you can focus on the color of light associated with each of the chakras. This is a gentle flowing class for all levels to guide you to a place of balance and serenity. (Thursdays at 7am)
Taking it Easy
