Class Descriptions

Beginning Yoga  – A class that introduces you to yoga postures (asana) and proper alignment; to the importance of yogic breathwork (pranayama); to calming the mind using dharana (focus) and dhyana (meditation); and the path path… This is the class that opens the door, but you have to walk thru . Oh, and the path is yours, whatever you shall make it. Yoga is not a religion, but it can draw you closer to your spiritual connection or you can just enjoy all the physical benefits. When the student is ready, there’s a class somewhere, and we kinda like this one!!!!

Straight Ahead Vinyasa Yeah, Vinyasa baby — you know you love it…this liquid movement that defines the practice of combining movement with the breath. A virtual pranayamic dance! That’s right, this class if filled with movement, so it is suggested for those with Yoga experience as well as beginners that like to move and understand the basics.

Go with the Flow  – All Levels – Sometimes we need a more vigorous practice to release stress and tension that has our bodies and minds wrapped so tight, and sometimes we need a more gentle practice in acceptance of our selves just as we are and to honor our gentle spirit. This is an all levels class that offers both options, but (as always in life on the mat and off the mat) the choice is always yours. At all classes, options will be give to explore and observe our Yin natures (passive/accepting) or our Yang natures (aggressive/ moving & changing)

Power Flow – Awaken the Fire  A challenging and invigorating sequence of Sun Salutations, standing poses, and even practice with arm balances and inversions. This class is sure to ignite your energy. Push yourself and build on your yoga practice in a positive and supportive atmosphere.

Loving Kindness and Gentle Yoga with Meditation  – A passive practice to open the heart, the mind and the body. So much of our external world pulls on us too tightly with demands and deadlines. As a result, we begin to constrict in resistance. This constriction has us living too tight in our bodies, in our minds and in our hearts. We forget that the greatest thing we can give to ourselves and to each other is acceptance, kindness and love. Each class will conclude with a seated Loving kindness Meditation – just what we need to set a positive intention for ourselves and extend more love out & into the world. And, doesn’t our world need it? Do you?

Yoga Therapy /  Rx  & Gentle  – A therapeutic class for many ailments. This class focuses on health of the spine through strengthening back and core muscles, releasing tension in the neck and shoulders, strengthening the knees and bring the body back into balance, naturally and holistically. Take charge of your health, your life in this class that helps you work towards wellness.

Sunday Sadhana– Find that quiet place of balance and stillness within. We live so much outside ourselves, and it is so important to stop and bring proper focus and attention within. Your yoga is a tool for doing just that. This class is to guide you through proper alignment and help you find focus in your yoga practice…­a focus that centers the mind and nurtures the body. By teaching from a point of awareness on alignment, Brent wants to help you build a solid foundation and knowledge of yoga asana. Take a breath before the work week begins

Slow Flow + Meditation – This class centers around moving through vinyasa with intention. We strengthen our mind-body connection by focusing on the feeling of power and lengthen through the muscles that move us. After moving through the physical practice, we take the mind-body connection deeper with a centering meditation.

Yoga Core – Improve your posture, alleviate back pain, and even prevent injury with this core-centric series. Each class tackles core muscles  from many different angles. A great class to help support healthy movement for any physical endeavor. We not only strengthen in this class, but end with a series of stretches to help keep the core muscles supple, and the spine flexible.

Yin Restorative – Yin Yoga is a slow and introspective practice. We take our time easing into, staying in, and getting out of stretches. The intent is to allow our larger muscles groups to deeply relax so that we can begin to work with our deeper connective tissues. Release on a deeper physical and mental level in this class. Most classes include a guided relaxation/meditation.

Ananda Yoga – flowing style of yoga called ananda (meaning “bliss”) which incorporates positive affirmations and a focus on preparing the body and mind for meditation. (not currently offered)

Yoga Therapy for Stress “YOGA HAPPY HOUR” – The perfect solution for anyone who needs to unload, unwind and find their center. This class is for all levels and begins with moderate movement to release physical & emotional tension and then gradually melts into a liquid flow that literally wrings tension and tightness from the body with twists and forward folds. The final segment of the class includes relaxation followed by breath work, and concluding with a seated meditation to center the mind and promote clarity & balance. (not currently offered)

Ashtanga Yoga – This class focuses on learning a yoga sequence uniquely tailored to your body and level of experience from the Ashtanga Yoga series. You will work one-on-one with the instructor to learn postures that are best suited to your ability. Once you know the sequence you repeat it each class, gaining depth of posture, ease of breath, and awareness of patterns in the body and mind. As you progress, new postures are added for continued growth. This method not only increases strength, flexibility, and focus, but also empowers you with a sequence to practice wherever you are!  We hold a two hour time window for students to practice their sequence at their own pace with the help of the instructor. For your first Ashtanga class, please allow at least an hour to speak with the instructor, perform asana practice and take rest. In the first class, you will learn foundational breathing techniques and postures from the sequence. In subsequent classes, new postures will be added to what was learned. As you progress, and over time, the length of practice may gradually increase.
