An accessible vinyasa flow open to beginners (who have started with Foundations classes) and seasoned yogis. Modifications and deeper offerings will be presented so that you can make the practice most successful for yourself! Threads of different styles- restorative, bikram, ashtanga, meditation and more- may be woven into the sequence. No two classes will ever be alike.
It’s all in the name! Not suitable for first timers, this heated flow gives you the opportunity to turn doubt into security and stress into sweat. Do I need to be able to crow, split or handstand for this class? NO! However, practitioners should have a secure sense of their personal yoga practice. One should know when its time to rest without being cued by the teacher and when it’s appropriate to go for it and try it out!
Never been to yoga? Haven’t been in a while? Looking to refresh the basic foundations of vinyasa yoga? In this class, you will learn how to silence your mind and still your body. Emphasis on cultivating a yoga breath, Ujjayi breathing, will be a very common cue. Heighten your self-awareness by absorbing alignment cues. Shift your expectations into appreciation.
In this class, you will have ample time to elongate the muscles, joints, fascia, and connective tissues of the body. With a yin like tone, this class will allow you to draw your attention inward, creating space and ease where you once felt stuck. With a consistent stretching practice, your hips and spine will especially begin to unlock, increasing your range of motion, alignment, posture, and overall health. This is an excellent class for those of you who are looking to relax and move softly.
This Iyengar inspired class will aid in targeting and releasing congestion out of the body. Iyengar yoga is characterized by great attention to detail and precise focus on body alignment, while supporting yourself with props such as, backless yoga chairs, blankets, bolsters, straps and blocks, to aid in allowing beginners to experience the pose more fully. Therefore, with less muscular effort, the student will be able to focus your awareness on your pranayama (breathing) practice.
Unlike more experiential approaches where students are encouraged to independently "find their way" to the asanas, an Iyengar Yoga class is highly verbal and precise, with misalignments and errors actively corrected. The discipline is considered by its practitioners to be a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life, in turn helping to promote total physical and spiritual well-being. If you are tired of living with the same aches and pains, this class is for you
Need to balance out your energetic map? This is the class for you. In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang is a concept of dualism, describing how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. The principle of Yin and Yang is that all things exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites, for example, female-male, dark-light and old-young. This specialty class is taught by Holly Pelletier, licensed and full time acupuncturist. A unique blend of meditation, pranayama, Chinese medicine, kundalini and iyengar inspired yoga. This class is sure to make you feel, sweat, and evolve.
Draw the body into natural alignment while creating gentle openings so that you can relax and let go. Think of this class as a midweek reset to turn inward; slow down and let go. Each pose is supported with props and is crafted to encourage a effective release of stagnant stress and tension. To enhance the experience you will receive Reiki from certified reiki practitioner. Reiki is an ancient energy healing art from Japan and is synergistic with a restorative yoga practice. This class is open to all levels and is perfect for the student who is looking to dive deeper into their yoga practice in other ways then the study of asana.
