All classes at our studio are designed to provide you with a safe, supportive, inclusive, and effective yoga practice... focusing on creating over-all resilience of body, mind & soul.


GENTLE ADAPTIVE FLOW

This  class is perfect for All Levels & Appropriate for Seniorsand offers its participants a bridge between moving in flow and staying stationary.  It is a midway, where there is equilibrium and bliss in every pose.  You stay in a pose just long enough to enjoy that you are not pushing yourself, all while equally strengthening and stretching, and increasing flexibility to repair muscles that are in need of love in a safe, adaptive, and supportive way..  There is no hurry to finish a sequence!  It’s all about relaxing and allowing yourself and your body to spend as much time there as you want and need.  Gentle yoga keeps the atmosphere free of competition and comparison, and there is no frustration of not doing a pose, or agitation of not holding a pose…. As we all work within unity to strengthen our bodies together.


GENTLE SLOW FLOW

This class is a great fit for All Levels & Appropriate for Active Seniors (ie: Seniors who have a consistent yoga practice, or run, golf, play tennis, walk, bike, swim, work-out, etc.) and is designed to offer a more flowing set of Gentle Yoga poses.  It does require that you have some ease and fluidity of movement and mobility, as this class takes it up a notch from a softer, slower, more traditional Gentle Yoga practice, through a continuous sequence of invigorating and energetically balanced asanas to warm the body, strengthen the core, and built more endurance.


GENTLE YIN FLOW

This class for All Levels & Appropriate for Active Seniors (ie: Seniors who have a consistent yoga practice, or run, golf, play tennis, walk, bike, swim, work-out, etc.) is designed to target the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body.  The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and strengthen the bone and joint areas.  Gentle Yin is slow moving and quieter practice, where poses are held for a longer period of time to access joints, connective tissues and bones, rather than muscles.  Suitable for everyone and all levels, it makes for the perfect evening yoga class.


SUNRISE FLOW YOGA

This All Levels class is designed to awaken your senses and begin your day with an invigorating and energizing flow of poses using a gentler, and more adaptive approach. Sequences in this class are slower paced to help all yoga levels build a solid foundation, healthy alignment, and breath awareness within each pose.


GUIDED MEDITATION

This All Levels class suitable for beginners offers emotional steadiness and harmony, as well as personal transformation.  Guided meditation relaxes the entire brain, including the amygdala, which is the emotional center of the brain.  When you meditate, you enter a space of internal expansiveness, calm and joy, which has an effect on our interactions with others and the world around us.  Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation from the inside out.  And as you experience your inner storehouse of peace and security, you will naturally begin to discover aspects of yourself that were previously hidden due to stress. Please bring a blanket, pillow and/or meditation cushion with you to class.


BASIC FLOW YOGA

This is for All Levels & Beginner Yogis.  It is designed for students who are new to yoga, haven't practiced in awhile, or that do not practice on a regular basis. This class focuses on poses to stretch and strengthen the legs, back, core and shoulders.  Emphasis is given to alignment and fundamentals of all basic yoga poses.  This class includes pose modifications to accommodate different levels of flexibility, and longer breath counts between poses to allow plenty of time to transition correctly and safely into each pose.  It's a great starting point to any future practice.


PROGRESSIVE FLOW YOGA

This class is designed for Experienced Yogis that have a solid understanding of yoga, and have a consistent yoga practice.  It takes its practitioner to a deeper level then just the basics, and includes a progressive challenge of poses throughout the class flow and/or sequence. Modifications will be offered or suggested, as well as increased variations of intensity.  This allows the you to deepen your practice at your own pace, and own level of flexibility, as you transition safely from pose to pose.  Some of the more challenging poses will be introduced in preparation for a more advanced practice, should you choose to take your practice further. This class in NOT recommended for those that are brand new to yoga or have never practiced before.


CHAKRA FLOW

This class is designed for Experienced Yogis that have a solid understanding of yoga, and have a consistent yoga practice.  Similar in format and level of ability to our Progressive Flow (see Progressive Flow above).  In this class, through the guidance of the instructor, the Chakra System (the primary energy centers within our bodies) comes to life.  As you move from pose to pose, focus is placed on the 7 Chakra's - either individually and/or entirely. Transitions will flow seamlessly as you move from your Root Chakra at the base of your spine to your Crown Chakra at the top of your head. Poses within the sequence, all work together to open each Chakra's individual characteristics through exploration and body awareness experiences.  The Chakra's are what help keep our bodies balanced, aligned, and healthy, when keep them in-check.


DYNAMIC FLOW YOGA

This is for Experienced & Advanced Yogis that been practicing for awhile, and have consistent yoga practice.  This class provides students an opportunity to refine their skills through a more deeper exploration of the asanas presented and how they can flow together seamlessly by means of steady paced breathing.   This class is much more challenging, and does include inversions, arm balances, headstands, shoulder stands, body binds, and more. It is recommended that you have a consistent yoga practice, and have an excellent understanding of the basic yoga poses prior to attending this much more rigorous class.


MINDFUL RESILIENCE (TRAUMA SENSITIVE YOGA)

For All Levels and offered to Treatment Centers or Wellness Facilities, for all yoga ability levels, and specifically designed for Trauma and/or Addiction recovery. Mindful Resilience Yoga is based on the central components of the Hatha style of yoga - where participants engage in a series of physical forms and movements, breath work, and meditation.  Elements of this traditional Hatha yoga practice are modified to help foster experiences of empowerment and to cultivate a more positive relationship with one’s self, in a safe and nurturing way.  Mindful Resilience Yoga allows participants the opportunity to be in charge of themselves based on a felt sense of body awareness, shifting their focus from external experiences and appearances. This shift in orientation is the key attribute to helping participants restore their connection of mind and body, and to create a sense of self-worth that is often compromised as a result of trauma and addiction.  When we facilitate space for self transformation, accompanied by sentiments of peace and contentment, then there is no more separation between body and mind.  (Note: This program does not claim to diagnose, prescribe, treat or cure)
