A practice to explore Sthira sukhamasanam – the yoga sutra that reminds us to practice asana (poses) with steadiness and ease.

This class will calm the nervous system while also gently building strength, flexibility and balance.
HOT DETOX FLOW

A basic knowledge of yoga poses is recommended, and modifications for varying intensity will be offered.
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.
RESTORATIVE YOGA/YOGA NIDRA
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.

Dive deep into the heart with a soulful practice that will leave you both invigorated, connected, and refreshed. This is a heated class that will move you through basic yoga postures. You will be encouraged to use your breath and awareness of body in the poses to help you connect with and explore your own inner light.
SUNDAY SOUL SWEAT
Some people call this class “Yoga Church,” maybe because it’s on a Sunday morning, or maybe because of the beautiful weaving of physical practice and connecting to spirit. Unite with your center in this heated flow featuring plenty of sun salutations mixed with unique sequencing to challenge your body and still your mind and connect with Self. A knowledge of basic yoga postures will help you be successful in this class, but otherwise plenty of variations are offered to make it accessible to you.
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. Our three sound healers Kimberly, Cheryl and Betsy each rotate through the schedule, using 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.
An all-level challenging class that awakens the body/mind connection and brings awareness to the connection between movement and breath.

WARM YIN FLOW

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.

WARM YIN WITH MUDRA AND MANTRA
A practice designed to balance and nourish, this class will soothe and settle the nervous system. Poses are held longer with props to provide comfort in a heated room.
