​​YIN (Level I)

Yin yoga is an amazing complementary practice to your strenuous workouts and active, busy life.  The class focuses on gentle yet intense long-held poses (3-5 minutes) combined with breath work (pranayama) and meditation. Yin yoga goes beneath the superficial muscles to target the dense connective tissues of the body. 

YOGA NIDRA (Level 1)

Yoga Nidra is a practice that initially seems similar to guided meditation and is done laying down in savasana. However, Yoga Nidra is actually a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.  Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.  It has been found to reduce tension and anxiety as it allows the nervous system to reset to a state of calm & ease and to help the hormonal system learn how to rebalance itself. Studies show that one hour in yoga nidra is as restorative as four hours of uninterrupted sleep.

YOGA FOUNDATIONS (Level 1)

This class focuses on getting back to basics with emphasis on correct alignment of postures commonly found in a vinyasa class - making it perfect for beginners as well as seasoned yogis who want to come back to basics and ensure proper form. The class follows the basic structure of a vinyasa class but with more alignment cues and breaking down of postures.

AERIAL YOGA FUNDAMENTALS (Level I)
Learn the basics of Aerial.  Fly through the air in the hammock. This apparatus allows you to lengthen and strengthen your body with zero compression. You will decompress your spine, break up stubborn fascia and improve stability & mobility.   We offer fundamentals classes (for those new to the practice) and mixed level classes (for those who want to advance their practice).  Fly and be free.

 

AERIAL YOGA MIXED LEVEL (Level I/II)
Building off the basics learned in Fundamentals, this class incorporates more advanced postures, flips and tricks.  Have fun, be free. 

BARRE (Level I/II)
The class is set to upbeat, popular music to motivate you through your entire body workout to lengthen and strengthen the body through small, controlled movements. We begin with a quick up-tempo warm up leading into arm toning exercises, we then move to the barre for a full lower body workout complete with some ballet-inspired moves that really target the seat area. This is then followed by core and floor work to bring you to the home stretch of your workout. The class incorporates light hand held weights, resistance bands, small fitness ball, and a ballet barre for a total body conditioning workout. The class is for all fitness levels in that it provides modifications as well as challenges for each move depending on your own level and personal goals. Muscles are worked to fatigue through tiny, controlled movements, isometric moves and high repetition sets, so it is not unusual for muscles to begin to shake and quiver uncontrollably, which you will find is a great thing. A nice cool down and stretch at the end of class will leave your muscles feeling longer, stronger and leaner and you will leave the hour class feeling completely worked out and ready for more.​

YOGA SCULPT (Level I/II)
Kick off your day with a yoga class that sculpts, tones and strengthens. This class combines yoga with strength and conditioning techniques, incorporating light weights (optional) and slow controlled movements that will enhance your overall yoga practice. All levels welcome.
