FOR BEGINNERS & CONTINUING STUDENTS


Gentle & Restorative
   This combo class is a mixture of gentle movement and Restorative Yoga. The practice begins with a Restorative Yoga pose, creating a meditative state of deep, nurturing quiet to heal, detoxify, and de-stress. Next, gentle movement supported by deep Yogic breathing begins to open the body, mobilizing the spine and major joints as well as mindfully stretching and strengthening. Class always ends with a period of deep relaxation. Great for beginners, or those seeking a slow-paced, accessible practice.

Wednesdays, 11:00 am – 12:15 pm

Basics    Basics classes emphasize the fundamentals of classical Yoga practice: meditative awareness, breath, and alignment. Appropriate for both beginners and continuing students, these classes are slow-paced, but offer a moderate amount of challenge.

Thursdays, 6:30 – 7:50 pm

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 more dynamic practice. 

Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10:00 – 11:30 am

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. Great for beginners as well as continuing students. Yin Yang Yoga (Tuesday mornings starting June 4, 9:15 - 10:45 am) is a combination of Yin practice balanced by a Yang practice of active, rhythmical movement.

Wednesdays, 5:00 – 6:15 pm
Thursdays, 9:15 – 10:45 am

Awareness Through Movement (ATM)®  ATM lessons in the Feldenkrais Method® are gentle movement sequences designed to bring attention to your whole self, mindfully and compassionately. By slowing down, we are able to sense and feel ourselves in movement, enabling us to start to make clear distinctions between areas where we experience more or less comfort, ease or “over-efforting.” Through this experiential learning, we begin to sense, think, and feel outside of our habits. Becoming aware of habits and ways of learning can create a positive shift in our capacities for movement and functioning. ATM classes are open to all adults, including those with neurological difficulties, chronic pain, injuries, or other issues.

Mondays, 6:00 – 7:15 pm Note: Classes take place in the Blue Studio, next door to the Yoga Studio.

Sunday Community Class  Every Sunday we offer a pay-by-donation class, with a different teacher and topic each time. This is a great way to check out our studio and teachers! See our News page for this month's schedule.

Sundays, 9:30 – 11:00 am

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.

Saturdays, 8:00 – 9:40 am

Embodyflow  Inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa and other flow forms, this class offers 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 quieting yet dynamic sun salutation variations. 

Tuesdays, 6:30 – 7:50 pm

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.

Wednesdays, 9:15 – 10:45 am
