Selecting a Yoga Class
Do you like to learn? If so, you’ll enjoy our beginner Monday and Wednesday classes and our more experienced Tuesday and Thursday classes at 10:00 am. These classes are taught as learning/progressions. That means that each week classes have a theme that focuses on poses purposefully sequenced for the class level. For example, the theme may be shoulder opening on the first day of the week; the second class of the week enhances this theme through further explanation and exploration of nuances. These classes often are interactive with feedback for the students. That said, if you can only attend one class a week, or occasionally, you will still learn and expand your practice.
If you are looking more for relaxation and meditation, the Saturday 8:30 am class may just be your cup of tea! All other classes on the schedule are geared towards the level of students in the studio. If you have questions about which class is best for you, please contact us.
Yoga Class Descriptions
Begin at the Beginning
Slower paced, these classes emphasize understanding, safety, and stability within each pose. If you have never tried yoga, this class is perfect for you as well as for those seeking continued understanding of foundational yoga poses. Come learn and play in a supportive environment. All bodies are welcome.
Open Yoga: All Levels
This class welcomes everyone – from those with a foundational knowledge of yoga to teachers. Classes are ideal for students who are open to diving into the all that yoga has to offer.
Weekend Yoga Reset
These classes are designed for anyone looking to let go of the week and ease into an enjoyable weekend. Accessible for all levels, classes release tension, improve mobility and create a feeling of balance leaving you feeling relaxed and restored.
Yoga – aahhhhh: Something for Everybody
These classes are geared toward deepening our practice by fine-tuning our attention, not through doing more. You will be encouraged to notice if you can feel “a free and easy breath” while paying attention to body awareness and postural alignment. Classes will also incorporate innovative use of props and creative sequencing, with an emphasis on body mechanics and core strength. While physically challenging, this class is accessible and safe for practitioners of all levels. You will leave feeling calm, relaxed, less achy and more energized.
Refresh: to give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate. That’s exactly what these classes do! We start with somatics, a gentle form of movement designed to release patterns of pain so that we move more freely. Accessible yoga postures follow that are geared toward students who are new to yoga or have been away from the mat for awhile. You will leave the class feeling renewed and revitalized.
Yoga for Strength & Mobility
These classes are based on principles of movement: True mobility = flexibility + strength & motor control. We playfully step outside the box (and off the mat at times) to explore our practice and our movements. These classes are a wonderful way to fuse fitness with yoga.
Yoga plus fantastic equals a Yogastic class! Classes embark on the great adventure of finding a balance between effort and ease in our yoga practices. Ample use of props and modifications help to discover a version of the pose that feels incredible in your body. This class is just right for getting started (or getting back on the yoga train).
