Classes –  General Styles of Yoga offered at our studios.

Bhakti Flow Yoga is a physically strong and intellectually stimulating practice leading to spiritual awareness. Each class focuses on a theme, which is supported by Sanskrit chanting, readings, references to scriptural texts, music, spoken word, asana sequencing and yogic breathing practices.  Some experience suggested.

Hatha Yoga develops flexibility, strength and balance with an emphasis on alignment and energetic balancing. Class offers a range of postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), and restorative postures offered with appropriate modifications for the individual.  Good for all levels.   Some classes, Hatha Flow, may incorporate more dynamic elements moving between poses.  Foundations and Fundamentals classes are good for beginners to all levels, while participants in Hatha, Intermediate level classes should have at least six months of regular practice in the Foundations classes.  

Gentle Hatha Yoga is offered for all levels of yoga practitioners seeking to enhance and grow their practice, taking the time to move slow and cultivate their "beginners mind". A gentle approach is taken with the practice and basic yogic principles of alignment within poses, movement between poses, breath and awareness are emphasized.  Good for all levels.

Kripalu Yoga is a gentle approach to yoga. The word Kripalu translates in English as the yoga of compassion and is often referred to as meditation in motion. emphasis is placed on meditation, healing and spiritual transformation. By focusing inward each student is encouraged to find their own path and level of challenge depending on the day and how they feel. Through modifications and compassion for oneself, Kripalu yoga can be practiced by anyone no matter what age, body type or perceived limitations one has. The gifts of this practice will manifest themselves on the mat as well as off the mat.  Good for all levels.

Kundalini Yoga includes all elements of the ancient teachings of yoga: Asana (postures), Pranayam (breathing techniques), Mantra (sound current), Mudra (hand positions), and Meditation. These aspects are combined into series of movements called Kriyas. Some Kriyas are dynamic and energetic, others are slow and meditative.  Kundalini Yoga strengthens the nervous system, stimulates the glandular system, develops flexibility and tones muscles. It greatly increases mental energy and gives you a deep inner calm, strength & grace.  Good for all levels.

Restorative Yoga is intended to rest the muscles and the mind through long held postures that are supported with props to minimize physical effort.  Held for five minutes or more, restorative postures include light twists, forward folds and gentle backbends.  By practicing stillness for extended periods of time, the practice helps to nourish and restore the body and soothe and still the mind.  Good for all levels.

Vinyasa Flow – Build strength, vitality, flexibility and endurance. Enjoy breathing, stretching and moving along a flowing sequence of poses. Vinyasa Yoga links breath with movement, and is generally considered vigorous and uplifting. Classes can vary in pace and level of strenuousness.  Some experience suggested
