Scott Harig instructs the following:
  • Hot Power Yoga (2/3)
  • This is a vinyasa power yoga class taught in a room heated to 100-105 degrees. The heat will provide for a detoxifying sweat while you flow through an athletic and dynamic sequence of postures.

  • Ashtanga Open Practice
  • Ashtanga Open Practice refers to the way Ashtanga Yoga is traditionally taught in its home city of Mysore, India. This program is one of Pure’s unique and specialized offerings.

    Each student is taught individually; given a one-on-one lesson within a group class. This individual approach means Ashtanga Open Practice classes are a perfect fit for new and longtime practitioners. Each and every student is guided and supported in an ongoing program that offers an incredible array of strength, flexibility, and flow resulting in a practice that detoxifies, balances, and strengthens both body and mind.

    Each student is encouraged to memorize the breathing/movement sequence and develop an independent yet insightfully supported practice.

  • 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.
