yin

"Yin Yoga stretches and strengthens the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. The practice enhances the natural range of mobility in the hips and pelvis and the flow of energy in the tissues around the joints. It also trains the mind to become comfortable with discomfort." ~Angie Ackerman

workshops

Practice for a set period of time in a particular topic area. Typically registration is required.

level 1 or experienced

If you have practiced yoga or completed a beginner series, you are experienced. We'll always modify when needed, regardless of level.

restorative

Restorative Yoga is an amazing way relax and renew, taking your physical body to new levels of comfort and your mind to amazingly clarifying spaces. In the practice, you stay very still and comfortable, and remain awake and aware of your body.

retreats

Typically overnight, sometimes remote, always requiring advanced registration, retreats are fun experiences where you and your yoga friends can celebrate life, yoga, and the pursuit of shivasana.

hatha flow

Deliberate, breath-based controlled movement. "Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation." ~Yoga Journal

power yoga

Fast-paced, matching each breath with movement. "It has its roots in Ashtanga... It moves quickly: Power Yoga is definitely an intense workout that will make you sweat.
It's great for strength training: Other forms of yoga may be ideal for flexibility and meditation, but in Power Yoga, you lift and hold your entire body's weight constantly. These classes incorporate a serious number of Vinyasas, and they're definitely going to get your entire body into gear. For one, your arms will definitely feel the burn from all those Chaturangas!
It makes you feel energized: There's a reason that so many people leave Power Yoga classes saying that they're feeling a little 'blissed out.'"~PopSugar
