Beginner – Level 1 / Low Intensity
Gentle + Restorative
In our fast paced environment and life stresses, sometimes you need to slow your flow, and even stop. Gentle + Restorative Yoga is wonderful opportunity to relax the body and restore the brain. The body is supported in postures that are held for a longer period of time, using the support of props (blankets, blocks and bolsters) to feel at ease and find comfort in each pose. It is a softer practice designed to bring the body – muscles, joints, vital organs – back into its natural balance and state of grace. This is a relaxing, rejuvenating class. All can benefit from this style class.
Level 1 Yoga / Begins with low intensity with options to increase
Gentle Flow Yoga
Gentle Flow Yoga offers slower movements with breath to warm up the body (lubricating joints and stretching muscles gradually). The class then moves into strengthening postures and a balancing pose to work on focus. This practice helps keep the body supple and healthy.
This deep stretching class is combined with a slower flow incorporating breath work and longer holds to help improve flexibility. Yoga Stretch is ideal for students of all levels who are particularly tight, athletes for cross training exercise, to ease sore muscles, or for those recovering from injuries. Your body will feel free and open, releasing deeply-stored tension. Mixed-level. Low to moderate intensity.
Pilates & Yoga Fusion
Combining the best of both practices! The dynamic blend of movement increases strength, balance, and agility, while relaxing and focusing your mind. The workout is easy on the joints, yet delivers a great strength, balance, agility and flexibility workout that you will love! This workout will leave you feeling energized, open, and toned.
Mixed Level (Level 2) / Moderate Intensity
Energizing Morning Flow Yoga
This fun flow class will open your heart, build strength and release the energy through powerful breathing techniques. Move and breathe to unleash and unlock barriers within the body. Leave feeling joyful and serene. Some knowledge of yoga postures recommended. Mixed-level.
All level Flow
Learn the foundations of Flow Yoga (vinyasa) through active poses to help you gain strength and flexibility.
Don’t let the name fool you, this class will build strength, flexibility, and challenge you at the same time. We play with the same postures in vinyasa flow but we slow it down. When we take time, our nervous system relaxes, our minds slow down, our muscles become supple, our breath deepens – our inner chemistry shifts towards a biological balance, which one experiences as peace, tranquility and stress reduction.
Sun & Moon Yoga
First half of class builds heat through dynamic postures and Sun Salutations. Second half focuses on deep stretching. Strengthen and stretch your way to balanced mind, body, and spirit! Mixed Level. Moderate Intensity.
Level 3 / Moderate to high intensity
Core Flow Yoga
Get ready to move and pick up your flow! In this class, the flow picks up. Stronger, more advanced poses are taught, including jumpbacks in Sun Salutations, twists, backbends, binds, inversions, and arm balances. Variations and modifications are always offered, but students are also encouraged to find their edge. With dynamic sequencing, longer holds and deeper postures, Core Flow is for students who are ready to practice in a challenging way, both physically and mindfully. This class is appropriate for new injury free students and those with a strong, ongoing yoga practice.
