Align & Flow

In these practice we align and then move that alignment in a thoughtful vinyasa from simple to complex. These are “Peak Pose” oriented practices, meaning the instructor sequences towards an interesting pose. The practices are smart, challenging, and offer skills that one can take into any future vinyasa classes.

Classes listed as Align & Flow - Dynamic will be stronger, more challenging and potentially sweaty.

This earthy, smart and sustainable vinyasa practice changes so much…… Align and…. Flow.

Bhakti Flow

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotional spiritual consciousness. In Bhakti Flow Yoga, we move our bodies as a way of aligning ourselves to our true selves nature and the divine. This traditional vinyasa flow class begins with inspiration from the Vedic texts to reflect on throughout the hour.

Students are then led through an invigorating, yet meditative flow that is suitable for both the new practitioner and experienced yogi alike. The class finishes with some light mantra to seal in the practice. Students leave feeling grounded, refreshed and connected through mind, body & soul.

Thera-YOU-Yoga

Thera-YOU-Yoga

Trying to figure out why your lower and upper back hurts and yoga is not completely giving relief? Dreaming about how not to have sore “vinyasa” shoulders and a tender neck? Looking for insight on how to have happy and healthy hips?

Regardless of our age and experience, yoga should never hurt! In fact, we all really want it to have the opposite effect. This deeply alignment focused Thera-YOU-yoga practice will give you real skills to empower yourself corrective strategies of postural orientation and integration to ease and eliminate any current bodily pain and irritations.

Anjali Restorative Yoga

Anjali Restorative Yoga, founded in 2003 by our Founder, Shannon Paige, is a well-respected style of nourishing, gentle yoga.

Anjali Restorative Yoga is a rich, restful practice of deep and meditative support, both physically and emotionally.

The practitioner is held for sustained periods of meditative time by a delicious sequence of restorative postures. Each posture is supported by bolsters, pillows and blankets. The hallmark of an Anjali Restorative Yoga practice is that the restorative spaces are filled with incredible imagery, guided meditations and restoring breathing practices.

You might notice that these sessions help you access a calm you never knew existed.

Slow Flow & Restore

Nourishing Vinyasa

Sip a cup of tea to begin!

Similar to a traditional vinyasa, this class is guided by the flow of movement with breath. While the practice is active and flowing, it also emphasizes principles of grounding – both physically and emotionally – to enable the individual to go deeper within. A nourishing vinyasa is carefully crafted to be both accessible and inspiring, often incorporating extensive balancing sequences, while providing modifications to best support the entire class.

With sequencing designed to honor the body’s intelligence, our hope is that you leave this class feeling more compassionate toward yourself and more comfortable in your skin.

Qoya

Qoya classes, which are a blend of yoga, dance and community connection. They are based on the idea that through movement we remember.

We remember how to trust our body as our sacred guide, embody our soul, and live a life aligned with our truth by following our intuition. Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms we practice: wise–the wisdom of yoga, wild–the creative expression in dance, and free–the freedom to enjoy our bodies through feminine movement.

No experience necessary! There is no way to do Qoya wrong and the way you know you are doing it right is that it feels true to YOU.

These classes are appropriate for feminine practitioners of all levels.

Come as you are, cushions are provided.

Traditional Indian musical instruments are welcome.

Earth Yin Yoga

Particularly in the west, our lives and yoga practices flow from a place of Yang or dynamism. Yin offers the ease-filled opposite and the result is balance.

Within effortless effort, use the skillful progression of postures to rewire tension patterns. Release stores of trauma in the facia. The postures use the tools of sustained time and gravity, without force, to offer a deep and meditative practice that triggers parasympathetic, rest and digest, nervous system.

Chill Out with us in this nurturing space. Leave a more vibrant being!

These classes are appropriate for practitioners of all levels.


Yoga for Athletes

This yoga class is geared toward athletes to address common sport specific muscle imbalances that occur as a result of their active lifestyle.  With a heavy emphasis on anatomy and physiology, this class is intended to educate and empower athletes as to what happens to their bodies with exercise and the best corrective exercises to balance those movement patterns. 

This is an ideal class for people who are "not that into yoga," but want to experience the benefits of a yoga asana (poses) based corrective movement practice.

These classes are appropriate for practitioners of all levels.



Balanced Yoga and Trumpet Meditation

One could say that Life and Music is a balance and play of tension and relaxation, similar to the yin and yang principle in everything.

Nature provides a continuous dance within and around tension/relaxation and yin/yang. This all levels class will explore the infinite ways in which one can play with the spectrum of tension and relaxation in our bodies, and within the sound of music.

These classes are appropriate for practitioners of all levels.


Yoga vs Osteoporosis

This specialty class uses yoga to slow bone loss and enhance new bone growth.  

It is carefully designed for people with osteoporosis, osteopenia and for people wishing to use yoga as a preventative tool against osteoporosis.  You will practice poses and sequences based on medical research.  Students leave with a sense of empowerment, balance and calm. The focused attention to each pose aims to improve posture, balance, strength, range of motion and coordination.  

Attention to breath and bhandas help deepen the practice. Come ready to practice each pose with vigor! The more muscles we recruit the better we stimulate bone growth. Previous training in the poses and sequences are strongly recommended. Watch for our Yoga vs Osteoporosis workshops or contact Jeanette for a private session.

Sacred Song Circle

Chanting is a practice which guides the mind to rest and opens the heart. In this class we build on these benefits by bringing a gentle focus to emotional well-being. We begin by settling in to our postures and connecting to our inner self with a guided emotion contemplation.

The intention for our chant is to allow stuck feelings to arise with our inhale and release into the exhale of the sound. We prepare our voices with a simple warm-up exercise and explore the meaning and pronunciation of the words. The chant is in a "call and response” style accompanied by live harmonium music and finishes with a short peaceful meditation. No experience required, all voices and hearts welcome.

These classes are appropriate for practitioners of all levels.
