All Levels Flow Yoga follows it roots from Vinyasa yoga. Energize your body and mind with an active flow incorporating core strength, stretching, and breathing in a dynamic moving sequence and end the class with a guided relaxation. Students are encouraged to move at their own pace as they become internally aware of the body, mind and breath working together. All of our classes offer yogic breathing (pranayamas) and meditation (dhyana) for the full body/mind experience. All levels are welcomed to enjoy the flow.
Chair yoga is for EVERY body. It offers all of the wonderful benefits of a regular yoga class, from the support of a chair. It is a natural choice for seniors, desk workers and those recovering from injury.
This class is appropriate for new students as well as more advanced students who want gentler movement. It includes basic seated and standing postures with simple transitions up and down off the floor. Technique and hands-on adjustment are offered. Variations on postures accommodate those with limitations or recovering from injuries. This class is a great way get to know your body. It will awaken areas that feel weak or restricted and unwind chronic tension. Gentle attention on breathing allows you to access a sense of peace and calm.

LUNCH POWER YOGA
This is an All-Levels Vinyasa Class. You are invited to attend for the full hour, or those who have to return to work are welcome to leave early.
Each class will work to balance all muscle groups’ strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on challenging the core muscles with each movement. Classes will blend the Classical Pilates Method with exercise variations. Modifications are suggested for beginners or for those with physical limitations. Mat Pilates is a challenging yet safe method to sculpt your body and to feel increased agility in your every day movements. Class is appropriate for all-levels.
Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress. A restorative yoga sequence typically involves several poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It’s a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Calm and reset your entire body and mind to prepare you for ultimate relaxation in Savasana.
SLOW FLOW YOGA
Slow Flow Yoga, in some ways, has traditional roots. This style usually provides poses that range from gentle to challenging, but done with stable, self-centering energy. The pace of these classes is understandably slower and emphasis is placed on safe alignment and the maintaining balance of the slow breathing. This style can vary tremendously in its speed, with some classes preferring long, silent periods of reflection and static holding during each pose, and others opting for a more fluid experience (with possible frequent bursts of energetic sequencing to raise energy). The toned-down speed of these classes does not, however, mean that the poses are any less beneficial for building strength, stability, and postural integrity than other styles. This slower pace is definitely more conducive to the meditative practices of mindfulness of action and awareness of breathing. This makes it particularly well-suited to newer students, or for those who desire deep concentration within their practice.
Wake up with the SUN. Energize your body, mind and spirit in this practice that energizes your day and harmonizes your life. At the end of class you will feel refreshed and ready for the day. All levels welcome.
VINYASA FLOW YOGA
Vinyasa flow is a great way to assist practitioners in moving from a gentle practice to a more robust asana practice. Various modifications are offered, allowing each person to practice at their level and ability. Vinyasa is also called Flow, in reference to the continuous movement from one posture the next.
YOGA FOR ATHLETES
This all-levels yoga class takes you through a series of highly effective strengthening and stretching exercises that are key to the demands of an athlete, no matter what sport you are involved in.
Yoga nidra combines a body scan with breath awareness, and adds a visual and sense component. It’s often called yogic sleep, because it induces states of mind that are between being asleep and being awake, resulting in deep relaxation and rejuvenation. Most of the elements and principles of yoga nidra originally come from traditional teachings on yoga, breath awareness, and the koshas, energy layers. I like to bring a focus on witness consciousness, intuition, and creativity. Each stage of this yogic sleep opens doorways to yourself and the energy within, as you move deeper into relaxation.
This setting affords the opportunity to learn at your own pace with your teacher’s full attention. Each of our teachers offer one-on-one sessions.
What better way to celebrate than giving the gift of yoga to yourself and your loved ones? We can design a class to meet the needs of any group
while having a great time!

YOGA & ESSENTIAL OIL WORKSHOP
The use of essential oils to enhance and compliment the yoga practice dates back thousands of years ago. Adding essential oils to the yoga practice accelerates or enhances the student’s ability to overcome the mind through the body. Historically, oils have been used to aid in meditation that brings us to the present moment. The workshops are specifically themed and are adaptable to suit a variety of yoga experiences to enhance the emotional support and therapy that yoga provides. Students have the opportunity to learn which oils best assist the individual in balancing body, mind, and spirit.
