Yoga is the practice of deliberate attention. Our classes offer slow-paced, breath-centered investigations into the experience of embodiment, incorporating alignment principles for safety and clarity, and meditative focus for centering and grounding. All of the Yoga we offer is influenced by Embodyoga®, classical Yoga practices and philosophy, plus modern mind-body research. The Yoga at Space teachers are highly trained and committed professionals with many years of teaching experience. See our About page for teacher backgrounds and certifications.
Pick a class appropriate for your experience with Yoga. If you have an injury, excessive stiffness, or a health condition, please contact us first. A group class is usually not appropriate for those working with injuries or medical conditions, nor are any of the classes we offer meant to serve as a substitute for physical therapy or similar individualized treatments.
for beginners & continuing students
Basics Basics classes emphasize the fundamentals of Yoga practice: meditative awareness, breath, and alignment. Gentle Basics classes focus on floor poses, easy stretching, balancing, and stress relief. Moderate Basics classes can be more dynamic and challenging, but are still slow-paced.
Mixed Levels A well-rounded Yoga class incorporating flow forms and classical poses. An excellent class for continuing students, and appropriate for beginners in good physical condition who are ready to try a dynamic practice.
Yin Yoga Yin Yoga is yoga for the joints, bones, and connective tissue/fascia. Yin Yoga promotes healing and wholeness by increasing one’s natural range of movement, joint mobility and flexibility. Most postures target the spine and hips, are done while seated or lying down, and are held in stillness for two to five minutes. The goal is to gently stretch and rehabilitate connective tissue while improving the flow of prana or chi, the subtle life force essential to overall well-being.
Yin Yang Fusion This practice integrates Yin and Yang styles of Yoga and will develop deeper body awareness and energetic integrity. The class starts with a Yin practice of long held postures penetrating deeply into connective tissue to increase one’s natural range of movement, joint mobility, and flexibility. Then, the class moves into Yang, an active practice targeting core strength and mobility in the muscles. Yang complements the Yin by promoting structural strength and stability in all the areas opened during the Yin practice.

FOR EXPERIENCED STUDENTS
Intermediate For committed, experienced, open-minded Yoga students, these classes incorporate the playfulness of slow-flow movement with investigations into subtleties of alignment, awareness, and intention. Intermediate classes may include meditation, pranayama, and inversions. Students must already be practicing Yoga regularly (consistent classes for at least two years with a certified teacher, plus a home practice), familiar with the names, alignments, and dynamics of classical Yoga poses, and comfortable following verbal cues only (no teacher demonstration is provided). Please note - this is not a fast-paced 'workout' or exercise class, and is not appropriate for beginners or those working with injuries.
Embodyflow Inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa and other flow forms, this class will offer a playful slow-flow investigation into breath and body. Best for continuing or intermediate students who enjoy flowing Yoga, like a sense of challenge, and are comfortable moving through dynamic sun salutation variations.
Embodycore A challenging slow-flow practice for those who enjoy strong, core-focused Yoga. We warm up with creative variations of Ashtanga-style sun salutations, move on to standing poses and twists, then explore a powerful series of core strengtheners - finishing (of course!) with deep relaxation. Best for strong, intermediate students. Not for beginners, those with spinal injuries or related movement restrictions, or conditions such as pregnancy.
FOR DEEP REST & STRESS RELIEF
Restorative Restorative Yoga is the practice of conscious resting. There’s no active stretching or active movement at all. Long holdings of comfortable, passive poses create a meditative state of deep, nurturing quiet - healing, detoxifying, and de-stressing. A fantastic practice for relieving the chronic effects of stress, exhaustion, or fatigue. Please dress warmly in layers, and wear socks.
