Flow Fundamentals

This class focuses on the alignment of the most common asanas (poses), you might experience in a Vinyasa style practice. If you’re a beginner, haven’t learned the mechanics of poses, or need a refresher– this is a great class for you! This is a progression class that builds from week to week, but feel free to pop in anytime as there will still be value in even just one class. In addition to a slower approach, you will also learn some of the many additional tools yoga has to offer! This is an excellent introduction for new students and also great for the intermediate/experienced student looking to fine tune their practice. Props and modifications are offered for proper alignment and ease in the postures.

Gentle Vinyasa (level 1+)

For beginners through intermediate students. You’ll be guided through postures in a Vinyasa style, beginning with the basic poses, but allowing for more challenging poses based on your practice level. Props are encouraged to allow the body to fully achieve each pose comfortably. Great class for those who are looking for a gentle experience, new to yoga, or need a change of pace. Also perfect for students with injuries or limitations.

Slow Flow

A slow flowing vinyasa style class, where students will synchronize breath with movement. Open and stretch your muscles with slow movement, careful alignment, and conscious breath. Flows from one posture to the next but at a slower pace with plenty of time and space to get in and out of postures. Enjoy this beautifully paced class!

Flow + Let Go

In this Vinyasa Flow class you will synchronize breath with movement. Students will focus on linking conscious breath with a mindful flow. In a Vinyasa class, students awaken their strength, energy, and flexibility in a fun atmosphere. Class will end with ~15 minutes of relaxation… that’s the “let go” part. This portion of class may include pranayama / breathwork, restorative and other relaxing postures.

While there will be inversions and arm balances, the only prerequisite is an established yoga practice. You don’t have to do anything but be willing to try what feels right for you! The yoga room will intentionally be “warmed up” to ~82-85 degrees.

Heated Ashtanga Vinyasa (led Half Primary)*

A traditional approach to the Vinyasa yoga style. Like a Vinyasa class, each movement is synchronized with breath. Expect traditional asana (poses) and sequences found in the Ashtanga Primary Series: sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, backbends, an opportunity to learn/practice inversions, followed by the closing sequence. Great class for anyone who is interested in learning more about Ashtanga Vinyasa. Open to all experience levels (even beginners)! Individual modifications will be available.  Music is typically not played in this class. The yoga room will intentionally be “warmed up” to ~82-85 degrees.
