Advance, Flow & Grow: Don’t let the word “advance” scare you away. Can’t do a crow pose? Don’t have all your binds yet? No worries. The focus of this class is to enhance your practice by deepening your connection to your breath & bandhas. Each week we will explore a new asana, asana group, and/or element of the practice. Twists, binds, arm balances, standing balances, backbends, and inversions will be offered, however there will be multi leveling to FLOW & GROW at your own pace. *This is a 75 minute class. (Class will be 60 mins for December, switching to 75 in January.) The room is kept warm and cozy, but not sweltering hot. Around 74-78 degrees.
Align & Flow: This class moves continuously and mindfully. Focusing on engaging the proper muscles, we will build a strong and mobile foundation for our practice that is rooted in breath, alignment, and connection to the core.
Ashtanga Inspired Flow: This is a condensed version of the true Ashtanga primary series. This practice flows consistently. Expect sun salutations, balancing, and flexibility enhancing postures. The practice can be modified to be as vigorous or mellow as you’d like. The sequence is learned over time so that the student develops muscle memory of it.
Dynamic Flow: This class keeps your mind awake as you’ll always leave having learned something new. This a flow style Vinyasa class that draws upon a variety of yoga styles and schools to create a unique experience.
Kundalini Yoga: Known as the yoga of awareness and the mother of all yogas. It's the whole pie, combining the 22 pieces of yoga. Kundalini combines postures (asana), breath work, (pranayama), chanting (mantra), and meditations. It accelerates the energy of the body / mind to create an elevated state which causes deep relaxation with clarity and alertness. This is a yoga for the everyday householder, allowing breakthroughs and stillness in a short amount of time.

Each pose is held for 2-5 minutes, but we are not doing planks! Longer holds will allow us to deepen into the postures as we quiet the mind. Truly a practice that everyone should experience.
