Annette Vetere instructs the following:
  • Slow Flow (Open)
  • Take it slow with this gentle, but deep approach to Vinyasa yoga. This practice links poses to breath to reveal body awareness, inner strength, and opening.

  • Restorative (Open)
  • Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing way of practicing yoga. Given props, the student achieves poses without much muscular strength, facilitating deep release in the connective tissue and calming the nervous system. Teachers may offer a meditative focus

  • Slow Flow Yoga (1/2)
  • Vinyasa is characterized by flowing poses and sequences that are linked to the breath. Slow Flow will refer to a vinyasa sequence that moves at a much slower pace than the standard class.  Clear instruction will be given for alignment, though actual sequences will vary from instructor to instructor.

  • Vinyasa (1/2)
  • 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.

  • Meditation: Yoga Nidra
  • Yoga Nidra (Psychic sleeping) – Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious relaxation. It is a powerful practice where the body and mind are liberated from their tensions and anxiety. One learns how to put the body into sleep while the mind remains fully awake. The brain wave drops into the theta state where deep levels of healing takes place on the emotional, mental, and physical planes.

  • 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.

  • Meditation: Breathe
  • This class is tailored to the enhancement of prana (life force) throughout the entire human organism. The bandhas are external locks which aid to unlock the internal koshas (internal layers of the subtle bodies). It will aid the student in finding deep levels of relaxation, concentration, and self-awareness.

  • 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.
