Power Vinyasa Classes are invigorating and strong flows, both inspired and rooted in Ashtanga yoga. This style strongly relies on the synchronization of breath and movement to produce beautiful, flowing patterns of motion and energy. Best for individuals who have a basic understanding of the yoga poses and feel ready to both physically and mentally flow through them, entering into a state of moving meditation accompanied with a high level of cardiovascular endurance.
With a foundation in Sun Salutations, Power Flow is often considered the “most athletic style” of yoga and attracts such clientele. At first, it’s all about seeking the workout; but, by the end of class, not only has the body slowed and calmed itself, but so has the breath, heart, and mind.
Slow Flow offers poses that range from gentle to challenging; done with stable, self-centering energy. This style can vary in speed; with some classes preferring long, silent periods of reflection with static, holding of poses and others opting for a more fluid experience (with possible frequent bursts of energetic sequencing to raise energy). The toned-down speed of these classes does not, however, mean that the poses are any less beneficial for building strength, stability and postural integrity.
This pace of these classes is more conducive to the meditative practices of mindfulness in action and awareness of breathing. It also allows students to take more time to better understand the overall practice and more finite aspects of individual poses. This makes it particularly well-suited to newer students, or for those who desire deep concentration within their practice.
Foundational Vinyasa is a level 1 vinyasa class that introduces foundational yoga postures and breathing techniques; helping students to feel more comfortable in a yoga practice. While this class moves at a slower pace than our Power Vinyasa classes, you can still expect to be challenged both mentally and physically.
This class will energize your body as you stretch and strengthen all of the major muscle groups in a sun salutations inspired class. Designed to bring practitioners back to the basics as well as create space for those new to the practice to comfortably cultivate a more developed understanding.
LEVEL 2 VINYASA
A class for advanced practitioners. Level 2 Vinyasa was inspired by Flight!, a class designed to teach practitioners how to successfully work towards inversions. This class is led with the understanding that students attending have a developed understanding of the yoga poses and safe transitions. Overall, Level 2 Vinyasa is not for the new comer or those seeking the more serene side of this practice. Come with an open mind and plan to develop the strength needed to work towards more advanced poses.
An hour long class split between the active, power vinyasa flow and the calming, meditative yin yoga. The intention behind this class is to warm your muscles through the heat- building, vinyasa flow; allowing space for your mind and body to settle into the depth of the yin practice. Yin poses are typically held 3-5 minutes to access deeper layers of connective tissue and fascia.
This practice emphasizes gentle postures and overall relaxation in an effort to recharge your body and calm your nervous system. Restorative yoga provides an excellent complement to the rigor of Power Vinyasa. Using supportive props and longer holds, we will invite the body to relax more fully and release all unnecessary tension stored in the physical, emotional and energetic bodies. Relaxing the nervous system and muscles will release tension and encourage healing and reconnection between the individual and their physical body. This class culminates with an extended Savasana to allow the benefits of the practice to fully integrate.
