class descriptions

Chair

This class offers an accessible way to practice yoga through the use of a chair to support the physical aspects of the practice. All poses and movements are practiced seated in a chair or standing using the chair for support. Class includes mindful movement, meditation, and conscious breathing practices. 

Flow into Yin

This unique blend of flow, meditation, and Yin provides a beautiful balance of yin and yang energy. Class begins with a flowing practice of movement linked with breath, where the breath guides the way as we flow from pose to pose. The class is punctuated by a period of seated meditation before moving into a series of passive Yin postures designed to help calm and cool the body and mind. 

Little Yogis (ages 4-7)

In this class, your little yogi will learn all about yoga in a fun, interactive, and creative way. They will be engaged in a variety of activities that promote learning, movement, focus, and awareness. We will read stories, play games, meet our "breathing buddies," and move our bodies through the practice of yoga postures. This class is crafted specifically for young children and their imaginations!

Restorative

This class uses props to support the body in positions of comfort and ease in order to help facilitate health and relaxation. You will be given ~5-15 minutes in each pose to rest, relax, and explore your inner landscape.

Restorative Yoga is designed to activate your body's "rest and digest" functions, giving your nervous system the opportunity to rebalance, restore, and recharge. This style of yoga may also help to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression, lower blood pressure, improve sleep, and boost immunity.

Slow

Slow Yoga is an all levels Hatha Yoga class. In this class you will be given space and time to slow down. Through held postures and slow movement, as well as conscious breathing practices and meditation, you can begin to physically and emotionally align yourself and build a sustainable yoga practice. By slowing down, we begin to feel and understand the subtleties of each posture and bring a deeper awareness to the way we move. Slow Yoga can be a highly beneficial practice for anyone looking to build physical and mental strength, focus, balance, and flexibility.

Supportive Gentle Yoga

Supportive Gentle Yoga is a relaxing, slow-paced, meditative class designed to help you practice yoga in a way that is gentle on your body. In addition to other props, we will use chairs to make the class extra gentle and accessible. Options will be given throughout class for coming down to the mat or utilizing the chair. Ideal for the student looking for a movement practice that is nurturing and less physically demanding. Also great for beginners.

Tween Yogis (ages 8-12)

This 45 minute class is for children 8-12 years old. Students will improve strength, balance, attention, and coordination through fun yoga games, challenging yoga sequences, as well as partner and group poses. They will learn stress management and relaxation techniques, along with mindfulness through crafts and journaling. 

 

Class will also teach students about the importance of showing kindness towards themselves and others, and will offer the opportunity to have open conversations about real-life topics. This class is a great way to help your child build self-esteem in a non-competitive, supportive environment. 

Yin

Yin Yoga is a slow, meditative style of yoga that promotes mindfulness, joint health, and flexibility. It can be a powerful tool to help manage stress and anxiety, and may also help with hip and back pain. 

Each seated or reclined pose is held passively for an average of 3-5 minutes. Because the muscles are relaxed, the stretch reaches the deeper levels of the body's connective tissues, including fascia, tendons, and ligaments. Time spent in each pose also helps develop mindfulness and patience.
