A dynamic and creative sequencing of poses linked together by breath. Our vinyasa flow practices range in speed and intensity, but you can be sure you will feel the energy flowing through your body as you settle into your final savasana.
Look out for "HOT" on the schedule to indicate if your class is heated or not.
Rocket is a fast-paced style of yoga that was sequenced by Larry Schultz in San Francisco. The sequences are based on the primary, intermediate and advanced series of ashtanga yoga, but structured in a way that allows the practitioner to adapt the class to their chosen level. Optional advanced poses are sprinkled throughout the class to challenge those who want it, but the rocket practice is all about connecting with your breath and choosing your own pace, so can be adaptable for all levels.
In today's yang/fast-paced world, the need becomes greater to slow down and find that yin balance. In this class, we take a little bit longer to breathe and settle into each floor pose, generally spending 3 to 5 minutes in each one. This allows us to move into our parasympathetic nervous system, slow down the heart rate, and get deeper into our connective tissue.
This class is all about slowing down your body and mind and letting go of control. Bolsters, blocks and blankets assist you into passive, relaxing stretches with holds up to ten minutes. Soothing ambient music, relaxing aromatherapy, and optional hands-on adjustments are all used to help you reach full relaxation.
Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. Pilates is named for its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the 1920s.
Your favourite flow class...amped up a bit. Power flow is an energetic, strength-based practice which helps build cardiovascular endurance. Sometimes the strength and power comes from holding a pose just a little bit longer, or finding a little bit more challenge. This class is still sequenced in an intelligent and dynamic way like a classic flow, but you will leave feeling strong and sweaty. Expect maybe a few more chaturangas, and perhaps a new pose or two.
Power flow is currently scheduled in the heated room.
A super fun fusion of ballet and pilates. No, you don't have to have been a ballerina in a former life, or even flexible. This low- impact workout has big results. Expect a full body workout, a little cardio. No equipment is required, however adding in light hand weights and a resistance band can enhance the challenge.
