  • Meditation: Fundamentals
  • Group meditation classes offer students of all levels a chance to integrate conscious relaxation into their practice and to learn a variety of accessible meditation techniques.

  • Hot Vinyasa (2)
  • Taught in the heated room, this style works through poses and sequences linked to breath. Sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy in this vigorous and fluid approach to yoga.

  • Hot Slow Flow (1/2)
  • Held in warm room, flow through ashtanga-like sequences to encourage deep muscle tissue stretching and release.Warmly heated room to encourage opening of muscles.Temperature of room ranges around 80+degrees.Great way for athletes to cross-train.Focus on Safety and Alignment of each asana while holding poses 5-7 breaths to encourage deep stretching and opening.Learn benefits of each asana and pose sequences you can travel with to keep your muscles open while away from home.

  • Yin Yoga (Open)
  • Yin yoga is characterized by poses supported by props (blanket, block, bolster). To differentiate it from a restorative class, yin will get deep into the soft tissue of the body. It's less restful, and geared more towards a functional release of deep muscle tissue.
