Everyone is Welcome

Hot Yoga

Yoga For Everyone class format with one big difference, the addition of HEAT. Room temperatures will range between 90 to 95 degrees. Postures and sequences will vary per teacher but the aim is the same, which is to create a safe, sweaty environment for yogis to practice mindful stretch, strength and balance. The key to enjoying Hot Yoga is coming prepared. Be sure you are properly hydrated BEFORE class begins. Bring a hot yoga towel to cover your yoga mat, a small hand towel if desired and water to sip sparingly during class.

Our classroom is equipped with Heating Green Infrared Heaters. Our heaters, like the sun, produce radiant heat waves which work to heat up water. Because the human body is made up of mostly water, this infrared heat transfers extremely effectively and can help gently increase blood circulation, rid the body of toxins and even provide pain relief.

Roll & Restore

This 70 minute class utilizes the Yoga Tune Up ® Therapy balls to provide you with simple self-myofacial release tools to help improve your mobility, prevent injuries, ease pain while healing and for recovery. After rolling, we will do a few restorative postures utilizing yoga props to make it easier for the body to surrender. This class is suitable for all levels.

 

Stretch & Flow

Slow, creative sun salutations, deep stretches. Guided meditations and restorative savasana. All levels welcome.

Sunrise Yoga

Each class begins with light meditation and gentle stretches to wake up the body. Then transition into energizing sun salutations, standing and balancing poses to round out the practice. A great way to start your day!

Yoga for Core Strength

Core Strength incorporates yoga postures, breath and a variety of dynamic movements to access your deep core muscles. Postures and sequencing will be geared toward strengthening and stabilizing the abdominals, glutes, and thighs. Having a strong core helps to stabilize the body which can prevent injuries and reduce low back pain. This is a challenging strength based practice.

Yoga for EveryBody

This class provides an opportunity for all levels to build upon the fundamentals of yoga through meditation, pranayama (breath work), and exploring more advanced postures (i.e. arm balances, inversions, and back bends) to increase strength, stamina, and flexibility. Modifications are offered for the advanced postures. There will be something for everyone, come and explore.
