We have a full schedule of both in-person and online classes via Zoom. Preregistration required for all classes.
Hatha Yoga - uses postures (asanas) and stretches in combination with the breath to develop flexibility and relaxation. There are many styles of Hatha Yoga. Some use a specific series of postures; others use a flow of movements, while some may use props such as blocks or belts to assist a posture or maximize a stretch. All styles of Hatha Yoga, however, encourage proper alignment of the body and bring balance, strength, and calmness to the practitioner. Our Hatha Yoga classes are based on the classic and ancient practices with attention to alignment and the deeper layers of yoga.
Vinyasa - emphasizes a continuous flow of movement using sun salutations, dynamic breathing and long holdings. Each part of the body (inside and out) is explored and worked in a deep and mindful way. This practice builds strength, tones and detoxifies. Vinyasa is a fun and creative practice requiring focus and dedication. This class moves at a quick pace; therefore, some Yoga experience is helpful prior to starting this class.
Gentle - Slower paced class with focus on breathing, relaxation and gentle stretching. Beginners welcome.
Yin Yoga - This class is designed to passively lengthen muscles in a series of mainly floor poses that will be held for 1-5 minutes. During the “hold” you will be guided into softening gently into the pose using your breath and mindful observation of thoughts. There will be carefully-guided gentle movements in the transition between each pose.
iRest® Yoga Nidra - A yoga nidra class using the method developed by Dr. Richard Miller. This class is quiet and introspective, with plenty of time to breathe, feel, and welcome the pause between stimulus and response. Class also includes gentle movement, breathing exercises and meditation to help develop our connection to our inner knowing that is always present. Beginners welcome.
Morning Meditation (mini-iRest® Yoga Nidra) - Guided meditation with focus on the breath and body sensation. No experience needed. Mondays and Fridays 9-9:30 am. FREE! (Currently offered online only.)
Pranayama - Pranayama, the yoga breathing practices, are one of the eight limbs of yoga—as important, although not as often practiced, as the physical postures. They are both a preparation for meditation and a meditation on the breath itself, a physically purifying practice and an emotionally sustaining one. This drop-in class teaches pranayama techniques in ways that are accessible to beginners and useful to more advanced practitioners. (Please note this class is currently being offered online only.)
