Check out our Friday afternoon “Fun Flow” class with Kat. End your week right by taking some time to get out of your head and onto your mat. We’ll turn up the music and work up a sweat before the weekend arrives. Sequences will include a general warmup, a little core work, a little balance work, and a challenging fun pose or two before a solid ten minute Savasana. Leave your ego at the door and just enjoy the energy…try out something new or maybe just take a few extra breaths in Down Dog, but either way make it your time and your practice. Primarily Level II flow, some vinyasa experience suggested but not required.
The word Vinyasa means the connection of breath to movement. Thus in Vinyasa yoga all movements are synchronized with the breath, creating a practice that is both dynamic and flowing.

Modifications are provided to make this class accessible to all.
The word Vinyasa means the connection of breath to movement. Thus in Vinyasa yoga all movements are synchronized with the breath, creating a practice that is both dynamic and flowing. The asanas, or postures, are derived from the Ashtanga system. The difference between the two styles is that in Ashtanga yoga one performs the same asanas in the same sequence every time, while in Vinyasa yoga one has more freedom to improvise sequences of asanas. A moderately paced class, combining vinyasa flow with high intensity movement and music. Perfect for men and women seeking a challenging and invigorating workout, excellent cross training for strength, endurance and flexibility. This is an ALL levels class. There will always be modifications offered as well as more advanced poses. PLEASE feel free to attend and listen to your body!

Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about.
This class really is for everyone. Come let go with this extremely relaxing class that is all about self care. This is for beginners up to the most advanced yogi.

This practice will revolve around a weekly chakra and the psychology of yoga. Each week we will move through one of the 7 chakras with a guided meditation and a asana practice that directly relates to our physical bodies, emotional health, and our ability to create our true “self” in the world. This is an ALL levels class.
