Class Descriptions

Align & Flow 

 

Align & Flow is a vinyasa ( or "flow") style of yoga. The hallmark of a vinyasa yoga class is the linkage of poses that flow one into another. The flows are paced by focus on the breath. Emphasis is placed on building strength and endurance, refining alignment, and working with variations on basic postures. Align & Flow is offered at various practice levels:

Level 1 - Builds on the foundation of the Yoga Basics class and includes postures and flows for the beginner.
Level 1/2- Designed for the experienced beginner to increase the level of challenge.                
Level 2 - Suitable for intermediate practitioners ready for more vigorous flows and poses.       
Level 2/3 - For intermediate to advanced practitioners, this class is faster paced and includes advanced poses.

Students in these classes should have familiarity with basic yoga poses and be able to move easily from floor to standing and able to bear weight on hands and knees. 

Align & Flow classes are offered mornings and evenings throughout the week. See class schedule.

Gentle Flow

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga style is a balancing practice that is complimentary to other styles of yoga. This reflective mind/body practice specifically targets the connective tissue, joints, meridians (energy pathways) and organs of the body.

Yin yoga challenges students to work slowly, mindfully and respectfully on their edge with instruction on how to personalize practice for the appropriate level of intensity according to individual needs. 

Students should be able to bear weight on hands and knees. Appropriate for practitioners at Level 1 and above.
