  • Vinyasa (2)
  • Vinyasa is characterized by flowing poses and sequences that are linked to the breath. This class is diverse and sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy and in general is a vigorous, more athletic approach to yoga.

  • Vinyasa Basics (1/2)
  • Vinyasa Basics focuses on correct breathing, postural alignment and sequencing of asanas in a traditional order, to help students cultivate a safe and well supported practice.

  • Alignment Basics
  • This therapeutic class is designed to develop ease, healthy alignment, and body awareness. Props and mindful adjustments in posture are used to aid body awareness and focus. It’s yoga without the “om.”

  • Yin/Yang (1/2)
  • This class begins with a fiery Yang(Vinyasa) practice to build heat in the body. This heat prepares the body to then melt deeply into 30 minutes of Yin yoga (restorative, deep release).
