Not sure where to start? Below are some recommendations for beginners!

YOGA CLASSES

CHILLAX

Chillax Yoga: A great class for varying levels with the emphasis on improving dynamic muscle movements. The flow is slow and the practice is geared towards broadening range of motion. This class has some strength building poses but is primarily focused on moving at a relaxed pace and building flexibility, great for training muscles and preventing injuries.

YOGA ROOTS

A foundational class that is great for teaching beginners how to follow a vinyasa flow. This class is for those who are interested in muscle strength and building up a strong practice. The flow is conducted at an easy to follow pace with the intention of helping new yogis find and connect various muscle groups. This includes activating those that are commonly overlooked or underused in daily life to help you build for a more advanced practice.

DEEP STRETCH

A class for all levels with the intention of allowing muscles to relax and lengthen. Focused predominately on stretching and releasing tight muscles and tendons, Deep Stretch takes strain off of the skeletal system. Flowing through poses slowly and emphasizing each enables yogis to become more aware and mindful of their own bodies.

YIN YOGA

A mixed-levels class with an emphasis on holding poses for a prolonged period of time. More advanced students may hold poses significantly longer than beginners during this slow flow. The intent of Yin Yoga is to apply stress to the connective tissues to improve flexibility while also bringing yogis to a deeper level of calm and awareness in their bodies.

ASHTANGA

Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic system to connect mind and body first taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Guided primary series lays down the foundation of a strong understanding to the Ashtanga practice by using the traditional vinyasa breath count in which every breath is accounted for and every movement is mindfully made.

JIVAMUKTI

Jivamukti: “Jiva” – individual soul; “Mukti” – liberation. The word Jivamukti is derived from the Sanskrit word Jivanmuktih (“liberation while living”).  Jivamukti classes are flow classes incorporating the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (non-harming), nada (music/deep inner listening) and dhyana (meditation) and is presented in teachings relevant to one’s life on and off the mat and supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands on assisting and meditation. Monday night classes are for intermediate/advanced practitioners. Wednesdays are for beginner/intermediate and Thursday nights are for all levels and is candlelit. Come in for an abundant and fulfilling transformational experience!

PRIMAL

Primal Yoga is a fluid and thoughtfully sequenced practice that combines movement and breath to cultivate the flow of Qi and pranic energy throughout the body. Primal Yoga seamlessly blends yoga with fluid movements inspired by Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Kung Fu into a harmonious dance to create balance, strength and synergy in your physical and emotional body. With an emphasis on breath, fluidity and intelligent alignment-based sequencing, Primal Yoga  taps into your body’s own innate wisdom to unlock the healing potential within. In this special series, we’ll explore the relationship between yoga and martial arts and how these two ancient art forms seamlessly work together to perfectly balance yin and yang. Out-of-the box movement and artful transitions will leave you rinsed out, energized, uplifted and inspired.
