Classic yoga classes are great for brand new beginners and continuing students. A wide variety of postures (which vary by class) will be offered via in-depth instruction, including breath techniques. Newer students find this Classic yoga builds confidence and familiarity. More experienced students appreciate the slower pace in order to refine skillful alignment and awareness. You will develop strength, flexibility and mindfulness. Pose modifications (options and variations) will be provided to support and/or challenge each student. Please note, these classes do not include fast-paced sun salutations and vinyasa style transitions.
Yoga One Flow classes synchronize strength, flexibility and skillful movement with breath and present moment awareness. Enjoy moving and breathing in unique, thoughtful sequences (varying by class) that include sun salutations, standing, seated and reclined poses. Inversions and arm balances may be taught with detailed stages for each level of student. Mindfulness within and between the poses is encouraged throughout the practice. Our knowledgeable instructors provide options to adapt the practice to your individual needs.
Flow & Restore
Classes will begin with 45-60 minutes of flowing and/or dynamic strengthening and stretching, linking movement with breath (see Flow above). The last 15-20 minutes of class will consist of restorative postures (see Restorative below) often supported with props (blankets, bolsters) to cultivate deep, supported release and an abundant, stress-melting Savasana (final relaxation).
Restorative yoga is a gentle (gravity assisted, typically supine) style of yoga that involves long (5-15 minutes), passive holds in a series of restful poses. It is a wonderful complement to an active yoga practice and stands alone as a proven therapy for chronic stress, high blood pressure, insomnia, trauma related to physical injuries, and other (all-too-common) ailments. Poses are designed to release deep-rooted physical and mental tension, often with the support of blankets and blocks. Students are encouraged to bring warmer layers of clothing (including socks) as the body naturally cools when resting. Eye covers and a small hand towel may be utilized.
Includes sun salutations and a wide range of poses led by breath. Vinyasa classes move at a slightly faster, more athletic pace than our Flow classes. Enjoy strong yet mindful movement, cultivating strength, balance, flexibility and vitality, followed by deep relaxation. Postures and sequences vary with each class to help students learn, grow and be present – arm balances and inversions may be taught with detailed stages for each level of student. Come invigorate, breathe, sweat and flow!
