What can I expect from my class?
Ashtanga Primary Series
During these led classes, students are guided in unison through the postures of the primary series sequence. The primary series of Ashtanga yoga is a form of inter-linking yoga postures accompanied by deep breathing which creates a purifying internal heat, realigning the body and calming the mind. This practice can be very challenging and is best suited to regular practitioners.
This is a slower class that focuses on linking breath to mellow movements and aims to create flexibility and spaciousness within the body. Candles are lit and lights are dimmed to create a relaxing environment for you to unwind and release tension.
This style is modeled after the Ashtanga yoga lineage from Mysore, India. Mysore class provides an opportunity for students of all levels to develop a self practice. Students work independently on a set sequence of postures. The teacher assists, adjusts and may quietly discuss particular difficulties or concerns with individual students during class. Classes are cancelled on new moon and full moon days.
Mobility sequences are focused on this 60-minute class that includes active flexibility, meaning that even though we are stretching, the muscles are working and providing resistance. This class is meant to be a head-to-toe well-rounded practice. We move into a full range of motion throughout the practice with deep stretches and a few fun mobility sequences. Perfect for a rest day or mellow-movement day, or for when you’re sore from another workout.
Based on the ashtanga primary series, but with a personal twist and take added from each teacher. In these led classes, students are guided in unison through the postures of the ashtanga half primary series sequence. The primary series of Ashtanga yoga is a form of inter-linking yoga postures accompanied by deep breathing which creates a purifying internal heat, realigning the body and calming the mind.
Inspired by the Mysore method, students are given space to explore their Ashtanga practice (traditional, modified or Rocket) with personal guidance from the facilitator. The practice can be tailored to the individual at any experience level, perfect for beginners to build a practice from the ground up while experienced practitioners can explore the postures and transitions in greater depth. Attendees are encouraged to communicate injuries, and preference for touch/assistance.
A high-intensity, challenging vinyasa class. You will explore variations of the poses and transitions which support dialing up the intensity of the practice. This class will guide you through energetic and quick-flowing sequences, with a dynamic mix of postures. We recommend having an established practice before coming to this class.
Rocket Mixed Levels
The class is designed to be accessible to all levels of practitioners. It can follow the format of a Rocket I or II sequence, with fewer postures and a slower pace. This is a great introduction to Rocket sequencing for newer students and a useful restorative practice for those who practice regularly.
This sequence combines the postures of the Rocket I and II sequences into a quick-moving practice. This 90-minute practice can be very challenging and is best suited to practitioners who practice Rocket regularly.
Rise & Shine Flow
This all-level Sunday morning flow incorporates energizing, feel-good sequences designed to warm up the body, as well as nourishing, calming movements focused on alignment, strength, balance, and flexibility. This practice will help you release tension and stress by linking breath to movement and inviting you to tap into the infinite well of peace within. This class is perfect for anyone newer to yoga or those interested in a more gentle flow.
This gentle class provides an opportunity to slow down and explore the body with softer movements, while still finding stimulating releases of tension and connection of movement with breath.
This vinyasa class will introduce a well-rounded sequence of poses that are designed to strengthen and stretch muscles while providing a foundation for your vinyasa yoga practice. This practice links the breath with the movements of the body.
Our most gentle class combines mellow movement and grounding long holds in postures. Yin Yoga uses seated & reclined postures with long passive holds to allow gravity and time to do the work.
