Beginner – these classes are great if you’re just starting out, they will be slower and there will be lots of explanation but you’ll still work and stretch your body.
Some Experience – any level student welcome…you might find it easier to follow along in these classes if you’ve had some experience with yoga – even if it’s just a class or two.
Experienced – these are faster-paced classes and some experience is suggested.
Advanced – these are our most challenging classes – students are still encouraged to honor their bodies and to rest or modify as needed.

Ageless Yoga is open to everyone, but is specifically geared for students whose mobility, balance, flexibility, and strength limitations require a more careful class. The pace is slower and more props are used to establish stability and access to the poses. Regular practice of Ageless Yoga is guaranteed to improve health, flexibility, strength, and balance.
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.
If you’re ready to take it to the next level, consider one of these classes, or treat yourself to some chakra healing and meditation…
The two main aspects of an intelligent yoga practice are steadiness and ease. This gentle class begins with a slow flow practice and ends with healing restorative Yin postures. This class will help release energetic blockages, and restore balance and harmony in your body and mind. Hands on Healing assists will be a “special” part of this class.
Hatha Yoga is the traditional style of yoga which combines various yoga postures with breathing techniques, and is followed by a short relaxation. Learn to harmonize and balance your body and mind in this energizing, yet peaceful class.
Our Hatha flow class connects traditional Hatha yoga poses into a continuous, creative and flowing practice. We encourage students to connect their breath to each movement as they flow from pose to pose. Standing and seated postures will be explored to build strength and flexibility. This is an excellent class for students who are starting to make the transition from a traditional hatha practice to one of our more rigorous vinyasa classes. All levels are welcome! Beginners are encouraged to come. Modifications will be offer to help students find their personal expression of each pose. Level 1-2 poses.
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. This is an evenly-paced class, combining vinyasa flow with a variety of basic yoga postures to build strength, stamina, balance, and flexibility. This class is designed for all students, modifications will be offered for poses and for transitions to make them accessible to everyone, and frequent alignment cues will accompany each pose. Some vinyasa experience is 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. 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. This is a moderate- to fast-paced class combining vinyasa flow with high intensity movement and music, and will provide you with a rigorous practice if you chose to find the fullest expression of each pose. 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 so students will often be offered the opportunity to stay in a modified version of the pose and to work where they are. There will always be modifications offered as well as more advanced poses. PLEASE feel free to attend and just listen to your body!
An evening Vinyasa class open to all levels. This class is structured to your ability, and the ability of the class as a whole. Basic poses with more advanced options are offered as well as sequences that start slow and build to become more challenging. You can push the limits of your body while having fun. Because of the open structure of this class students are often asked if there are any poses, transitions or specific parts of the body they’d like to target during the practice. There will be opportunities to break down some of those trickier poses you’ve always wanted to try or perhaps a few minutes for any inversion of your choice. Come willing to try something new! Some Vinyasa experience is suggested.
Check out our upbeat “Fun Flow” class! Start (or end) your week right by taking some time to get out of your head and onto your mat. We’ll ease into practice with a little breath work or meditation, and then turn up the music and work up a sweat. 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 2 flow, some vinyasa experience suggested but not required.
What exactly is aerial yoga? Simply put, its traditional yoga, just in the air! Aerial yoga still focuses on a connection with the breath while being present in the moment. Throughout your practice familiar poses like downward facing dog, warrior, cat/cow and pigeon all make an appearance, just with the added support of a suspended silk hammock. Aerial yoga is incredibly beneficial to both body and mind. It challenges your strength and balance, increases your flexibility, and encourages focusing inward. One of the biggest benefits of aerial yoga is its ability to create a safe environment for beginning students to go upside down. Inversions are so beneficial, but are often unavailable to many practitioners. Not in aerial yoga! The silk hammock supports and stabilizes the body and allows even the first time student to invert safely and receive the countless benefits of being upside down! Plus, it’s a ton of fun! So don’t be fooled by the flips and tricks (although we love those too!), aerial yoga is for all levels! Beginner and advanced practitioners alike will love the snug hug and gentle rock of the silk hammocks in savasana.
