February - May Schedule
Gentle Flow Yoga
A beginner level class that is slow paced and easy to follow. Gentle Flow blends slow vinyasa, deep stretches and standing balance poses to awaken the body and clear out stagnant energy. All levels are welcome.
Gentle Restorative Yoga
This class is about completely letting go. Using props to support the body, we move through a series of postures, each held from 3 – 10 minutes, to initiate deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. This quiet and gentle class will target specific areas of the body, to release tension, slow the heart rate, slow and deepen the breath, bringing you to a deeply rested state. Slow Restorative Yoga is beneficial to balance a more active practice or decompress after a stressful day. All levels are welcome.
Hot Power Vinyasa Yoga
A stronger and faster paced class designed to focus on the breath and its relationship to the pose, this class incorporates elements of Vinyasa, Bikram, and Barkan Method Yoga and systematically works every muscle, gland, and organ in the body with an emphasis on core strength cultivation. With all of your senses stimulated in this upbeat class, you will increase your heart rate, tone and lengthen your muscles, and burn fat while developing strength, flexibility, balance and concentration. Class suited for those with some yoga experience.
Restore & Yin Yoga
With focus on the breath, we move through gentle transitions to open the body and nourish the spine. Our restorative postures incorporate bolsters, blankets, and blocks to ensure absolute comfort in each pose. Yin postures focus on slowly and gently exercising the connective tissue that surrounds the joints in the body, releasing tension and increasing flexibility. Class suited for those with some yoga experience.
The class will begin with a rigorous warm-up that is designed to condition the body by utilizing dance and yoga techniques. The dancers will also be encouraged to discover their natural alignment and flow of energy within the body and how it manifests itself through movement. Technical combinations and skills will be taught along with improvisational structures so that the dancer not only is able to master learned movement but also to discover their own sense of flow and artistic expression.

Deep Power Flow
Designed after The Barkan Method style of Yoga, this 90 minute session begins with traditional Ujjayi Pranayama and moves through a series of sun salutations, followed by two sets of standing postures working on strength and flexibility, and closing with a restorative floor sequence that works on either spine flexibility, hip openers, or chest openers. A final savasana of 5 – 10 minutes allows students the time to completely surrender, rest and meditate.
Kids Yoga is a wonderful alternative to teach your child ways to manage life during their development years. It also teaches a healthy and non-competitive option to tune out distractions and outside attachments. This program focuses on yoga basics such as breath, awareness, meditation, and healthy movement that will benefit the key areas for growth. Increased flexibility and physical strength sharpen mental focus and concentration, improve self esteem and positive body image, and relieve stress and anxiety.
