*I offer beginner friendly options in every class.  Come as you are and try it out!

Align

These are foundational, well-rounded and integrated Hatha classes.  In sanskrit, “ha” translates as “sun”, and “tha” translates as “moon”.  You can think of Hatha as the physical practice of balancing and uniting opposites.  Through workable challenges, you will have the opportunity to cultivate deep awareness, training your mind to be less reactive through the process.  Options and variations are offered help you to find healthy alignment in your unique body so that you can mindfully curate a practice that meets your needs.

Vinyasa, Flow & Stretch

These are energetic Vinyasa classes.  “Vinyasa” means “to place in a special way”.  This is an intentional practice of cultivating extraordinary consciousness, yoking awareness to the present moment by linking breath with movement.  You will have the opportunity to explore your creativity and invite an element of play into your practice.  Vinyasa is for anyone who is ready to tune in, get curious, break out of habitual patterns and open up to new possibilities.

Moving Meditation

This style is a seamless blend of low to the ground Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga.  The first part of class is devoted to building a repetitive flow that we will explore as a moving meditation, which is simply the practice of traveling through time and space with exquisite awareness.  Then, we will wind down with some luscious Yin Yoga, in which poses are held for a minimum of 2-3 minutes to target the deep connective tissues of the body.  Through this introspective practice, you will gain access to the more subtle layers of your consciousness and cultivate deeper self-understanding in the process.  

Yin

This is a lunar style in which poses are held for a minimum of 2-3 minutes to target the deep connective tissues of the body.  More of a mental and emotional practice, Yin offers the opportunity for you to cultivate your inner witness by sitting with yourself through manageable discomfort.  The poses are just the tip of the iceberg- most of this practice is happening beneath the surface.  Props are encouraged so that you can move through an integrated and accessible practice.
