Balanced Hot Yoga Class Descriptions
Each instructor choreographs a particular series of breath work and movement for each class, so you'll never get the same class twice. Many of our classes are accessible to beginners and advanced practitioners alike; however, we invite students to select the class that best meets their needs. Our slow flow, yoga lab & basics instructors are happy to assist students in modifying postures to accommodate illness, injury, or lack of mobility. PowerFlow, Core & Restore & Balanced flow classes are open to beginners & generally designed to provide a great flow which is not an appropriate place to seek a higher level of individual assistance if your struggling with injury or pain these are not good choices. We do have instructors excited to work with you individually & teach you how to modify your practice to accommodate your specific needs just speak with your favorite instructor at the front desk or email the studio to request a private session. Privates range from $40-$75 per hour depending on the instructor & # of sessions purchased.
Hot classes are generally designed to be challenging and all levels at the same time. Our instructors create opportunities for personalization through giving students options to intensify or back off regularly throughout classes. Students are encouraged to take rest & water whenever needed. Everything we do in yoga is optional & you are encouraged to make the practice your own.
Balanced Flow: Our classic all levels hot vinyasa flow class composed of an intentional combination of postures designed to challenge your body and your mind. Rhythmic and invigorating, each class will include breath work, core work, spine strengthening, balancing, and muscle building.
Sunrise Strong Flow 6-7am Monday-Friday: Hot flow is a great way to begin your day. Join us for a 1 hour session to get your day off to a great start! Classes will offer warm up, sun salutations, balancing poses & core strengthening exercises with an emphasis on strength, breath & flow.
Yoga Lab: Wednesdays 430-530pm Join senior instructors for a more in depth approach to your practice. Your mat is your personal laboratory for exploration & self discovery. Build strength & knowledge to support your lifelong practice. You'll still get a great combination of strength & flexibility blended in with a deeper look at a particular part of the practice, whether that's a muscle group, breath technique, joint function or specific posture will vary from week to week. Make time for this fantastic exploration, your practice will thank you! This practice will be different each week, leave your expectations at the door.
Yoga Basics: A community class designed to cover all the basics, lets face it, who wants to jam themselves into bird of paradise at 10am on a Saturday? This class is a lovely way to begin your day, get grounded and connected to your breath, work up a great sweat, learn some stuff, laugh at your own silliness or lack of morning grace & basically set yourself up for a great rest of your day!
Power Flow: Previous experience with vinyasa flow yoga recommended. A more demanding hot vinyasa flow class, focused on strength and conditioning. Powerful sequences composed of strengthening repetitions, targeted endurance building and focused abdominal work. Any experienced practitioner is welcome to take this class and modify it to a gentler level to suit their personal needs. Class is designed to be more challenging than others while modifiable for people who simply like this time-slot but aren't interested in flying pigeon. Its all good.
Slow Flow: This class is perfect for practitioners who are interested in spending more time in the postures and deepening their anatomical understanding, technique, and alignment. More time will be spent in postures for exploration, class will be easier on the wrists with few if any vinyasa style transitions.
Classic Restorative: A traditional restorative yoga class with fewer postures held for longer periods of time. Focused on releasing negativity and muscle tension, while increasing flexibility and allowing the body a gentle space in which to heal. Restorative classes are warm (but not hot) with blankets, bolsters, straps, and blocks available for use.
Candlelight Flow: Our classic all levels hot vinyasa flow done by candlelight every Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm. Warning: Sometimes finding your balance is even more difficult in the dim light (as if it weren't challenging enough already!) so be kind to yourself and remember to take yourself at least 10% less seriously, its only yoga!!
Lunar Flow & Restore: Informed by the cycle of the moon this class offers a beautiful blend of yogic philosophy, tantric stories & playfulness mixed with strong attention to alignment of body mind & spirit. A flow with plenty of opportunity to strengthen & increase your awareness & mental flexibility. About 40-45 minutes of class will focus on movement, strength and heat building leaving the rest for restoration & of course Savasana.
Core & Restore Flow: Our classic, extra challenging hot vinyasa flow with lots of core power focused abdominal & back strengthening throughout. About 40-45 minutes of class will focus on movement and heat building leaving the rest for de-stressing & breath work. Previous experience with vinyasa flow yoga recommended.
