All Levels Flow
The term vinyasa means "to place with intention." In vinyasa flow classes, we aim to mindfully move in concert with the breath and to engage in sequences that gradually open, strengthen, and stabilize the body. Come expecting to engage basic pranayama (breath) practice in addition to well-rounded, vigorous sequences that include sun salutations, standing poses, balancing poses, backbends, twists, and forward folds. All levels welcome! Familiarity with basic yoga postures is highly recommended, but no experience with vinyasa yoga is necessary.
Let it Go: Restorative + Flow
A slow - paced flow practice followed by a yummy series of restorative (supported) postures, designed to give both body & mind a chance to put it all down & hit the reset button. The first part of class helps build strength, open the heart, and combat the ills of sitting and driving. The restorative portion of class may include comfort assists to release tension from the back and shoulders. This class is appropriate for all levels.
Somatic Yoga teaches the student how to bring their body into more awareness with slow and gentle movements. When a group of chronically held muscles are contracted, it is our nervous system that is holding it. To gain more flexibility and voluntary control within the muscle groups, we focus on the contraction and utilization of the muscles. We also use visualization and breath to enhance experiencing our bodies from within.
Yoga for Everybody
A very down-to-earth Hatha yoga class that helps you find and strengthen the many layers of the core and realize your flexibility. Highly instructive and perfect for beginners who are free from injury, options will be offered for different levels so that everyone is practicing in their own best way. Postures are held longer than our vinyasa all-levels flow classes. Questions as we work through the practice are encouraged.
Our Saturday 11AM Flow + is a yoga-inspired class designed for people who are free from injury and are familiar with vinyasa flow-styles of practice.
More challenging postures are offered and woven into the fabric of our flow with time devoted to cultivating steadiness and core strength. This class is as fun as it is challenging, and ends with a 15-minute savasana (final resting pose).
Pause for 30 minutes to practice mindful self-awareness and Tonglen-inspired mediation in virtual community. Led by Juko, there is plenty of time after to ask questions and connect with others.
This meditation class is free, can be practiced from anywhere (we have people join in from their parked cars!) and does not require any special set-up or equipment. All levels of experience are welcome.
