If you’re brand new to Yoga, this is where your journey begins. In a safe and nurturing environment, we explore the basic postures and breathing exercises that form the foundation of a regular yoga practice. With plenty of hands-on assists focused on learning proper alignment, this class will give you confidence and knowledge on your mat. Yoga Fundamentals is recommended for beginner yoga students, those who have been away from their mat for a while and seasoned yogis seeking a refresher on alignment or simply in the mood for a slow paced and relaxing class.
An intermediate class, slow flow is great for beginners looking to move beyond the basics and for vinyasa students who wish to slow things down a bit. This class moves slower than a traditional vinyasa class, with longer holds, focus on the breath and creative transitions. Don't be fooled, slow does not necessarily mean easier!
Slow Flow: & Yin Yoga:
This class begins with a leisurely slow flow sequence to warm the muscles and calm the mind, in preparation for yin yoga postures. Yin yoga is a series of poses in which the body is fully supported. Each pose is held much longer than in a traditional yoga class. This allows the muscles to relax and lengthen safely, without any stress or strain. In addition to the physical benefits, yin yoga provides the time to breath, relax and let go.
This class is best for yoga practitioners who have some experience with yoga flow, however modifications are offered for beginner and intermediate students. Vinyasa style yoga links breath and movement with focus on fluid transitions as well as strength, balance and mindfulness.
With fun and challenging sequencing and the addition of inversions and arm balances, our vigorous vinyasa class is perfect for the experienced yogi or vinyasa students seeking to deepen their physical and spiritual practice.
