DYNAMIC VINYASA: Vinyasa, sometimes referred to as the "breathing system", is a gradual progression of movements led by breath, that mindfully and systematically guide the student from posture to posture. We designed this class to be multi-dimensional and for anyone who enjoys a lighthearted, creative and ever-changing flow in its rawest form. The origin of this Hatha ("ha" meaning sun and "tha" meaning moon) practice requires the body to gradually heat up and then cool down so that you can appropriately explore and advance your physical range of motion. The asanas (physical postures) offered in this class range from foundational to challenging, with the intention to increase strength, flexibility and balance in the body while cultivating peace of mind. Resting and modifying your postures is an imperative part of honoring your body and cultivating a personal connection with your practice.
GENTLE VINYASA:In this class, we take the foundational qualities of a Vinyasa class (breath linked to mindful movements), modify the postures to a more mellow approach and then slow everything down. The synchronization of breath and movement helps increase awareness, calm the nervous system and quiet the mind. Perfect for beginners or anyone who enjoys a more meditative flow, Gentle Vinyasa gives space for students to gradually and safely increase strength and physical mobility without overworking the body or feeling rushed in any way.
SOUL POWER VINYASA: Combine the classical foundation of Hatha yoga with a power-based flow and you've got Soul Power Vinyasa!

Expect to move and breathe at an unhurried pace while you discover the body's physical limitations and deepen the inner connection among the mind, body and soul.
SUNRISE SADHANA: Greet the morning sun with an hour of Sadhana, or ego-transcending, spiritual practice.

You can be mellow or challenge yourself in this multi-level class.
SUPPORTIVE CHAIR YOGA: Supportive Chair Yoga is intended anyone with reduced physical mobility who wants to experience a balanced yoga class while using the support of a chair.

“The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you”
-Toto (Africa, 1982)
