VINYASA FLOW

Ground into your body and invite your inner light to shine! Vinyasa flow is an invigorating style of practice that beautifully weaves breath and movement while building resilience, expanding awareness, and cultivating a sense of calm throughout your whole being. Variations offered to help each student find what feels good in their body.

* SLOW STRETCH

Mostly floor-based, this beginner-friendly class is focused on creating flexibility as you peel away stress and enjoy a sense of ease and lightness in your body. Perfect for students who are new to Yoga, those recovering from an injury, and anyone looking to release physical and mental tension.

POWER HOUR

Level up your asana practice with this intermediate/advanced vinyasa class composed of strong sequencing that will prepare the body for peak poses such as arm balances, backbends, and inversions. A few flow classes are recommended before attending, for your safety and enjoyment.

HEATED FLOW

This dynamic flow class will challenge you in all the best ways with the added element of a therapeutic infrared-sauna! Our “Hot Shala” practice space uses far-infrared heat to warm your body directly as you flow with your breath through creative sequences and melt into a blissful savasana with a cool lavender-infused towel. Some yoga experience and/or a few beginner friendly classes are recommended before attending, for your safety and enjoyment.

* HEATED SLOW FLOW

A dialed-down heated flow practice for those looking to fine-tune transitions and build core strength as you ease into a steady, slow flow that will leave you feeling rejuvenated — mind, body, and soul! Variations offered to help each student find what feels good in their body.

* GENTLE YOGA

Gentle yoga is ideal for students looking for a softer pace that will allow for more presence with each posture. In this class, you’ll be guided through breathwork and a series of shapes designed to stabilize, mobilize, and create space for exploring your practice with ease and support.

HEATED EXPRESS POWER

Get your practice in under an hour with this condensed version of our signature Power Flow. Expect strong sequencing and point-to-point instruction toward peak poses.

VIN/YIN

An all-encompassing practice that offers the ultimate in efficiency as you balance strength & surrender. Utilizing principles of both yin & yang energies, you’ll flow through a creative vinyasa sequence that seamlessly transitions into longer held yin shapes designed to help you relax into the deepest layers of your body.

FLOW + ROLL

This combo-practice of mindful slow flow + myofascial release is the perfect way to support your active lifestyle and alleviate pain + discomfort. Myofascial release (MFR) is a safe and effective self-massage technique that targets the fascial (connective tissue) system that supports our muscles, bones and joints.
Students of all experience levels will find greater ease and mobility during this class.

YIN

Yin is a slow, soothing, and meditative style of yoga that targets the deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia, and ligaments in the body. Postures are held for several minutes at a time in order to focus on stretching and stimulating different acupressure points from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

YOGA NIDRA

Meditation can be defined as a set of techniques that are intended to encourage a heightened state of awareness and focused attention. Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation known as “yogic sleep” wherein our body finds its natural state of equilibrium (homeostasis) – the breath balances and becomes quiet, unconscious and conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into an innate state of deep, blissful awareness.

As always, please let your teacher know of any injuries or if you are tending to your body with extra care for any reason.
