Flow-Style Classes +
All Levels Flow & 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.
Our Saturday 90-minute 11:00 AM 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).
Mindful Hatha Fusion
This class requires a certain level of mobility as we dive into various postures and asana-vinyasas from standing, seated, prone (on belly) and supine (on back) positions. This includes taking the spine in all directions: forward, backward, side-bending and twists.
Long asymmetrical seated and/or standing asana vinyasa are often incorporated into class, along with an emphasis on standing and squatting poses to ground our energy, taking heat out of the head, neck and shoulders and dropping into our center. Class sometimes ends with a yin- or restorative-focused vinyasa. Either way, your body and soul will be well nourished to take with you on your journey!
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.
Earth Ways Yoga
Earth Ways Yoga is a system of yoga rooted in three layers of traditional wisdom: Yoga, 5 Element Philosophy, and Nature. Balance is cultivated through authentic alignment between the physical, emotional, and energetic parts of your body and the relationship of the natural world around you. This slow-moving yet powerful style of yoga invites focused attention on the sound of breath as a gateway to build a deeper relationship with yourself and with the meridian lines and points that work within you.
