Align & Define w/Ryan

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 isolate certain muscle groups for targeted toning.

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!

Curvy Yoga w/Tiffany

Midday Reset w/Ryan

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”.

Slow Flow w/Suzy

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 Flow w/Bre

This session of restorative yoga is suitable for practitioners of all levels. This restful practice of deep relaxation emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga, which unites the body and the mind. When the body enters a state of relaxation, the mind can also consciously relax as tension is released. Join Bre as she exercises your heart and soul by calling attention to your breath and helping you become aware of any sensations or thoughts that may arise. The perfect way to close out a Sunday evening!

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.

Weekend Wind Up w/Ryan

No matter how your week has been, take some time to transition your body into weekend mode. Address any tension or tightness with deep breathing and stretches. Enjoy a slow flow to eliminate any mental or physical barriers that may try to keep you from enjoying the days ahead.

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.

Yin Yoga w/Bre

Yin yoga is a slower and more meditative practice, giving you space to turn inward and tune into your mind and your heart, as well as the physical sensations of your body. This series of heart-openers will help you to stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts. Join Bre for this intermediate practice, which will remove any blockages and release your body’s energy pathways for free flow that feeds your heart, both physically and emotionally.
