When translated from Sanskrit, vinyasa means breath synchronized movement. This is a dynamic flow that links the movement of the body to the flow of the breath. During this class you will be flowing through poses in a creative and energetic way. You will build strength, gain flexibility and achieve balance in the body, mind and spirit. Please bring your own mat, towel, water and blocks if you need.
This is a dynamic practice that connects the flow of breath with movement. This Ashtanga rooted class will focus on the Primary Series, modified to suit the individual needs of each student. Students will be given clear alignment cues and hands on adjustments to assist them deeper in a safe way. Ashtanga Yoga was popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois in the early 20th century. A strong emphasis is placed on practicing all eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga, not merely asana (posture) alone. Ashtanga is a meditative practice designed to detox and purify the body, the nervous system, and the mind by combining asana (posture), pranayama (breath), and dristhi (gaze). We know that every student’s practice is different, and it is our mission to bring an accessible approach to the practice of Ashtanga to our community. Please bring your own mat, towel, water and blocks if you need.
Gentle Stretch + Flow
This mellow yoga class will allow you to connect your breath to your movement and pause in stretches for moments of meditation. Please bring your own mat, towel, water and blocks.
Yin is a meditative yoga practice where you hold active stretches for 3-5 minutes. It gets your body and mind into a place where you FEEL. When you reach this place of resistance in a stretch you will hold, breathe and wait for the body to open. This class will nourish the subtle body. Yin allows the fascia to relase, the chakras to open and the nervous system to drop into a parasympathetic state. Please bring your own mat, blocks, bolster and blanket (a bath towel will work fine) as we will need them for some of the Yin stretches. You can purchase these props at the studio if needed.
Myofascial release is a self-massage used to hydrate our tissues, release tense areas in our body, as well as increase our range of motion. Fascia is an interconnected, living, breathing, communicating system that connects from our head to our toes like a bodysuit. We use tools such as myofascial release balls to release specific muscles (encased by fascia) that tend to become tight or limited due to repetitive physical activity or poor postural patterns. In this class we will focus on different areas of the body that need release, which also correlate with the chakras of our energetic body. Please bring your own myofascial release balls or tennis balls. Make sure the balls are the same size and density. If you don’t have either, we have RAD Recovery Rounds for purchase at the studio. In addition, please bring your own mat, blocks, and blanket (a bath towel will work fine) as we will need them for some of the release techniques. Through practicing myofascial release, you will explore a greater connection to your body and it’s voice. Once you learn the techniques, MFR can easily become part of your home practice. Please note, more pressure or time rolling on a specific area is not necessarily better, be mindful with your practice and respect what your body is telling you.
