“Intro to Yoga”

Follow this symbol * for classes recommended for newbies and beginners to yoga

General guidelines for studio practice:

Each of our classes are generally taught “from the ground up”, allowing for the most gentle approach first and building on it from there. We design the studio schedule with the daily practitioner in mind, giving options for different styles of practice on each day to support you on your journey.

ALL of our regularly scheduled classes ARE OPEN TO DROP INS.

UBER Gentle is very slow moving and very gentle, Gentle is very gentle, Practical is the next step up with some more challenges along the way, Practical 2Flow and Practically Deep offer more of an edge for those looking for it and Power Flow is a very strong practices based on Sun Salutations. Restorative is simply that…

*Gentle Yoga: Very suitable for beginners and beyond. A very gentle, fairly traditional class featuring elements of Hatha yoga (breath, postures, relaxation) tailored to your needs. Great for seniors.

*Yoga Basics: A very suitable class for beginners and beyond. Just a little step up from Gentle Yoga with more focus on building in postural work, balance and gentle strength building.

*(UBER) Gentle Yoga: Very gentle and restorative in nature, this very slow moving class is focused on subtle movement, joint mobility and breath work for decompressing the nervous system. Suitable for all levels of practice, a particularly easy class for new practitioners, those healing from illness or injury or just in need of some super gentle movement.

*Restorative Yoga: Suitable for beginners and beyond. Only a few postures per class. Calm your nervous system, de-stress, decompress. Restorative for mind, body & spirit.

* Supported (Chair Yoga): This class modifies basic postures in a gentle & practical class while supported by the assistance of walls and chairs. Focusing on practical applications of stretch, strength building and postural stability, this is a great class for beginners, dealing with injuries, health or mobility concerns and the seasoned practitioner looking to shift their practice.

Practical Yoga:  Accessible for most levels of experience. Focus is on postures (asana), breath technique (pranayam), relaxation and the personal experience of yoga practice. A great class for taking an already existing practice deeper. More challenging than Gentle yoga, but not as fast flowing as Power yoga.

Practical 2:  Accessible for most levels of experience. A great challenge for those with more experience on their mat. An adaptation of our most popular studio class “Practical Yoga”, this one offers some more challenging postural work and deeper practices for the more experienced practitioner. Vinyasa inspired (breath inspired movement).

Practically Deep:  Accessible for most levels of experience.  This class is particularly suited to people who wish to increase strength, flexibility and focus. Particular attention is given to increasing flexibility of the hips, hamstrings and hip flexors – and to building strength in the core, lower and upper body. Yin inspired practice.

Practical Flow : A fun fusion of our Practical and Vinyasa flow yoga classes. A moderately paced class accessible for most levels of experience. We build up internal heat, strength and a little sweat, then slow it down with yin inspired postures to enhance flexibility and relaxation. Hands on assists and support for final relaxation are an added bonus and always an option.

Prime Time Power: A functional strength training class geared to the more mature fitness buff. This class focuses on isolation, mobilization and activation of key muscle groups and utilizing your body weight and resistance to get strong and stay strong. Not your average yoga class! a great compliment to ANY movement program and an amazing way to up your game in your yoga practice.

Morning/Evening/ Flow Yoga: . A Vinyasa-inspired (breath-synchronized movement) class. Creates internal heat in the body, builds strength, increases flexibility while synchronizing breath work to fire up the entire practice. Infused with a sense of play! Some previous yoga experience is recommended. A medium-intensity class.

yin & tonic: Find stillness and greater depth by holding poses longer in a yin sequence. A complex practice of long, passively held poses is deeply nourishing and has a myriad of benefits for any practitioner. Physically it enhances the natural range of motion in joints. Energetically yin enhances the flow of PRANA ( life force energy) in the tissues around the joints where energy often stagnates. Ultimately this style of practice supports organs, immune system and emotional well being.
