Advanced Flow Yoga w/Julie

Begin by setting an intention for your practice. The theme of this challenging yoga class is finding strength and courage on the mat so we can apply it to the challenges we face off the mat. In this advanced vinyasa flow, you will warm-up with an abs sequence to activate and bring awareness to your core. Then you’ll move into a plank series before incorporating balance challenges and strengthening exercises. You’ll get creative with fun transitions and unique pose variations to get your body moving and your mind thinking in new and different ways.

Beginner Yoga Class

Have you always wanted to try yoga? Feeling stiff and achy? Intimidated by the thought of looking silly? Searching for a calming yet strengthening activity? THEN….this class is for you! You’ll learn the Sun Salutations, Asanas and the terminology used in Yoga. This class will also teach you about the Yoga philosophy and how to cultivate that philosophy into your life.

Core Strength w/Dont’a

Though having “six-pack abs” is certainly an admirable goal, a truly strong inner core entails much more. Join Dont’a as he guides you through strategically sequenced yoga poses that go deep to tone the abdominal area, build strength, and increase range of motion. You will be empowered through proper alignment and muscle activation. The ways in which core strength will enhance your overall yoga practice and body awareness will astound you and it all starts here!

Hatha Flow Yoga Class

Hatha Flow, much like a slower-paced vinyasa flow, is about linking breath and movement to release tension from both the mind and the body. Starting with a short meditation, we will flow into a Hatha sequence where we hold postures, build strength and increase flexibility. Ending with savasana, this session will give you the release and rejuvenation you need.

Midday Reset Yoga Class

Focusing on alignment fosters your growing sense of body awareness and boosts your self-confidence. A lot of people feel quite disconnected from their physical bodies. Yoga works to reintegrate the body and mind with alignment as one of its primary tools.  Take this opportunity to restore your body’s alignment as Ryan slowly works you through a series of poses that allow you to just “be”.

Partner Yoga Class

Bring a partner or we will pair you up with one! Partner yoga allows the body to gently lengthen and strengthen through combined effort. Maximize the benefits of yoga by working together.

Restorative Yoga Class

Restore your body, mind and soul with this soothing practice. Release tension from fascia and ligaments. Breathe with a fuller awareness. Spend time with yourself and connect with your spirit. Leave feeling like you’ve just had an incredible massage!  Great for stress reduction, body awareness, and working through physical and/or emotional challenges.  And, with continued commitment, this class can change the way you think about yourself and the world!

Slow Flow Yoga Class

Slow Flow Yoga provides poses that range from gentle to challenging, but done with stable, self-centering energy.  The pace is slower and emphasis is placed on safe alignment and maintaining balance. The toned-down speed of these classes does not, however, mean that the poses are any less beneficial for building strength, stability, and postural integrity than other styles. This slower pace is definitely more conducive to the meditative practices of mindfulness of action and awareness of breathing. This makes it particularly well-suited for those who desire deep concentration within their practice.  This relaxed Vinyasa Flow provides a mid-week reboot for the tired body and soul. All levels welcome.

Soul Food Yoga Flow w/Olivia

Sundays are for reflecting on the days past, preparing for the dawn of a new week, enjoying delicious homecooked meals, or reconnecting with family and friends. For some, First Sundays, in particular, might include renewing the spiritual body with holy communion which, regardless of your spiritual path, ‘communion’ simply means ‘the sharing or exchanging of deep thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level’. This class is an invitation to reconnect with your inner spirit, creating unity and peace within. The gentle flow is like food for the soul, like a warm generous hug wrapping us up and telling us everything is going to be alright. Soul food is a symbol of love and is nourishing, not only to your taste buds, but also to your heart and spirit that connects you to everything you value.

Yoga at Its Core: Pathway to Practice

You know that yoga is good for you but you don’t know the who, why, when, and where it all began. If you are a big picture person who likes to put things into context, this deep dive with Tiffany is designed for you. Explore the origins, foundation, and philosophy of yoga and meditation. Review the pivotal teachings as you develop a practice with personal style. This spiritual journey will help answer your questions while also creating a thirst to discover more about yoga, meditation, and you.

Yoga for Young Ones w/Tiffany

Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Tiffany invites 2-5 year-olds to join her for just that. Parents may stay onsite but do not have to participate.

Wind Down & Restore w/Olivia

Wind down from the hustle and bustle of the week and celebrate Friday-Eve with a smooth, evening yoga flow and meditation, sprinkled with elements of a restorative practice. Take a moment to just be in the present moment, allow your mind, body, and spirit to create positive vibrations to carry you into the weekend ahead. But don’t let the class title fool you —- before a relaxing wind down, a heated ‘turn up’ might just be what is needed to fully release, let go, reset, and restore the soul.
