Ashtanga-Vinyasa Blend

Curious about Ashtanga yoga? This class combines elements of the Ashtanga primary series into Vinyasa flow. Emphasis is placed on using the breath, the drishti (gazing point), and both the outward and internal posture of the body to liberate the mind. This class will be rigorous! At least one year of consistent asana practice recommended.


Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga focuses on sustaining body opening postures and deepening into stretches in a supported way. Stretching not just specific muscle groups, but helping you create a greater awareness of your entire being. Slow down, nourish your body and journey more deeply within yourself.


Flow & YIN

This is a challenging practice that will leave you stronger and more flexible – on the outside AND the inside. We serve up 55 minutes of sweaty vinyasa flow, followed by 20 minutes of delicious yin (deep, intense stretching). Sequences are thoughtful and inventive, with an emphasis on alignment and breathwork. Intermediate level.

Classes encourage self-expression and exploration through asana, mindfulness, and music. Expect to feel blissful after class and ready to take on the weekend at whatever speed you need.


Prenatal Vinyasa

Dynamic movement, therapeutic applications, and evidence-based childbirth education are woven throughout as practical tools to help you connect both to the intuitive wisdom of your own body, as well as the wonderful growth happening for you and your baby (or babies!). Bring awareness to your mind, body, spirit, and baby in a beautiful, community-oriented environment.
