LOW FLOW
A dynamic, grounding, flow-based class that focuses on connecting the student to their body, breath and the Earth by setting intention, staying lower to the ground, building heat, and focusing inward to the flame at the energetic navel center. Once we’ve moved the breath and awareness into our lower bodies, the class finishes with deep restorative forward folds, twists and inversions that encourage the body to fully relax and be present during Savasana — the space in which true healing can begin.

POWER YOGA (VINYASA)
Power Yoga is an athletic, vinyasa (unbroken sequence) class. In these classes the postures are all connected with movement; one pose naturally flows into the next. We begin with centering, warm-ups, then move into a more active practice. We wrap up with cooling, calming postures, and end with a deep relaxation. Poses flow quickly from one to the other, so a knowledge of basic yoga poses is recommended.  Modifications will be available for students with specific restrictions.

QIGONG/TAIJIQUAN (TAI CHI)
Students in this class will learn the 24-move sequence of the Yang family style of Taijiquan, supplemented by a wide range of Qigong exercises based on the traditional Five Elements and Yin/Yang theories, including the Eight Pieces of Brocade and the Five Animals Frolics.

RESTORATIVE YOGA
This all level class provides an opportunity to disconnect from the busy activity of daily life, by slowly moving through poses, exploring your mind and body at a natural and steady pace.  This practice uses props to support the longer holding of simple poses to achieve a deep state of relaxation, centering your breath and body.   Restorative Yoga is a healing and nurturing experience that eliminates stress and fatigue, soothes the nervous system, encourages mindfulness while cultivating body and breath awareness.

SOUND SAVASANA
Savasana is the final pose in all yoga classes; when you lay down in a comfortable position and just let go. This class is all about moving into a deeper state of relaxation.  Kimberly will use singing bowls and different instruments to create sounds that promote healing vibrations.  When the body and mind are fully relaxed, this is when the body can truly heal and repair itself. You simply lay on the floor while being supported by props and blankets, completely receptive as the sound washes over you.  All you need is an open mind and heart to experience the benefits of this special class.

VINYASA FLOW
An all-level challenging class that awakens the body/mind connection and brings awareness to the connection between movement and breath.  Expect plenty of sun salutations as well as forward bends, backbends, inversions and arm balances that focus on aligning body and mind through the rhythmic movement of the breath.

VINYASA LEVEL 2-3
An intense, face-paced flow practice with rocking music and lots of sun salutes. All levels welcome, but know that this class is geared towards the seasoned practitioner.  Join us a few minutes before class begins for chanting and time to sink in.  Lots of strength-building poses, arm balances, and opportunities to grow your practice all in a sweet, accepting vibe.

WARM ALL-LEVEL VINYASA
An all-level class that emphasizes proper alignment and movement linked with breath in a room that is heated to approximately 80 degrees; intelligent, mindful sequencing of poses that build internal heat and focus in preparation for a full fifteen-minute savasana and meditation practice.  All levels welcome, poses will be modified or advanced based on your level of yoga practice.

WARM FLOW
This Level 1-2 class will be in a warm room (around 80 degrees) with lots of sun salutations and variations on the basics set to grooving music.  Emphasis on standing poses and core work.  Simple inversions only.  Class easily adapted to be less or more intense, depending on what your body needs.  All levels welcome.

WARM YIN FLOW
This class combines an active and dynamic warm up with an organic floor based Yin based practice in a room heated to 80-85 degrees. The dynamic warm up opens up all the major muscle groups so that it is more easeful for  the body to maintain longer holds and dive deeper into a peaceful state of release.  Yin Flow emphasizes core and transitional movement awareness, intense breath work, and how to engage the mind/body connection to restore and renew the entire being. Options are given so that all levels of students can customize their practice.

YIN/YANG
This class is designed to combine passive and active asanas with pranayama to assist the student in deepening their practice. We will begin with active poses and sun salutations to create heat. Then move into deep Yin poses, using long, passive holds to work to stretch the connective tissues (joints) of the body. Yang poses are the opposite but complimentary of Yin poses. Rather than holding poses for several minutes, you are moving and flowing through the poses to create heat and strengthen the muscles.Class open to all levels.

YOGA FOR TEACHERS
This all-level, gentle flow class is designed especially for teachers and other service professionals and founded on the tried and true belief that in order to truly care for others, you must first take care of yourself. Great for beginners, but tailored to the needs and experience levels of everyone who comes to class. Be a better You by taking care of You!
