Class Descriptions

Wondering what level our classes are? All of our classes are suitable for most levels. Our instructors are exceptional at clearly cueing each posture and transition to encourage you to feel it in your body. Options will be offered so that you can find the right variation for you.

Beginners are welcome to attend any and all classes. Even beginners may love a good challenge, and steady movers also need a nice, restful practice. We encourage you to schedule in some balance!

Flow

Flow is a dynamically and creatively sequenced class with poses linked together by breath. They 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. Our flow classes are based on and inspired by the fundamentals of yoga asana.

Look out for "HOT" or "WARM" on the schedule to indicate if your class is heated or not.

Rocket

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 challenging poses such as arm balances and inversions 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 adventure, so it is adaptable for all levels.

 

You may notice that this is the only class that we label as yoga on the schedule. Although many of our classes are rooted in yoga asana, there is so much more to yoga than movement. Expect some possible meditation, pranayama, and yogic philosophy throughout this practice.

Restorative

This class is all about slowing down your body and mind and letting go of control. Bolsters, blocks and blankets support 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

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.

Yin

In today's yang/fast-paced world, the need becomes greater to slow down and find some 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. 

In our yin yang class, expect this same style for half the class with a more dynamic slow flow either before of after.

Barre

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.

Aerial

Aerial is a form of fitness and wellness class using a silk hammock as a prop to support your practice. There are many styles of aerial classes from relaxing to challenging, from beginner to advanced. Aerial fitness is an inclusive type of practice that often borrows common yoga postures with the use of the hammock as a prop to make challenging poses more accessible, or to challenge you in a whole new way. No weight restrictions apply.

Raise the barre

Barre class...amped up! In this no-barre barre class, expect some cardio, weights, sweat and laughs. Raise the barre for yourself, this class is a party. 

Posture revival

Move slowly and intentionally while giving some love to areas that may be achey from sitting at a desk all week. Expect some functional movement and use of therapy balls to release connective tissues.

Friday slow down

Begin your weekend with a slow, mindful flow leading into longer holds as you let your week melt away.

Warm candlelit flow

Candles, music, ambience set just right to leave behind your day and set yourself right for your evening. Repetitive movement with breath will guide you through a a moving meditation. This is a ladder flow, vinyasa style class (meaning we will start with a short sequence and continue to repeat and build on it, encouraging you to get out of your head and into your body.)

Vinyasa yoga (ashtanga inspired)

Did you know that the rocket sequences are a vinyasa class inspired by ashtanga yoga? Expect an intelligently sequenced flow class where every breath has it's purpose in the sequence. Move with your breath and be still with your breath. We flow through a 1 hour variation of the rocket sequence, spending about 3-5 breaths in each posture. All levels welcome, option to explore some balances. This class will give you the opportunity to gage your experience from week to week.

You may notice that this is the only class that we label as yoga on the schedule. Although many of our classes are rooted in yoga asana, there is so much more to yoga than movement. Expect some possible meditation, pranayama, and yogic philosophy throughout this practice.
