60-90 minutes (see schedule for class lengths)

This is our classic, open-level Vinyasa Flow class. In it, we honor the infinite possibility inherent in each breath as we move through an asana practice that is equal parts challenging and sweet. Asana practice becomes a transformational and healing experience when it is intimately tied to meditative awareness and breath. Although the class is physically rigorous, we offer modifications to accommodate your level of experience.

90 minutes

As the foundation to all else in yoga asanas, core strength makes not just poses but daily life feel easier. With flowing Vinyasa sequences, this class incorporates core-strengthening transitions and postures that target your abdominals, obliques, spine, pelvic floor and shoulder girdle.  And, as important as strengthening the core muscles, we’ll also practice melty postures to ease those same muscles groups. You’ll find you’ll stand taller, feel stronger, and exude confidence.  The class is fun and challenging, but we encourage you to take a pace that suits your body’s needs.

Slow Flow Yoga Scott Johnson The Yoga House Yoga Kingston, NY Hudson ValleySlow Flow

60-75 minutes

This Vinyasa Flow class honors the spirit of unwinding by taking it slow and deep. We move at a sweet and mindful pace, building a slow-burning heat that prepares the body for opening and lengthening.

the yoga house, kingston, ny, yin yogaYin Yoga

90 minutes

Any complete yoga practice is comprised of both yin and yang elements. On the one hand, we want to strengthen and lengthen at the muscular level. This is the yang side of our practice. On the other hand, we want to gain access to deep connective tissue — our ligaments, tendons, and fascia — in order to open up channels for the free flow of life force, or prana. This is the yin side of our practice, and its meditative quality fosters the development of patience, ease, and calm. In this class, we hold seated and supine poses for about five minutes each. During this time, the teacher will offer alignment instructions and refinement cues, followed by a brief reading or poem, and then we will spend about two minutes in sweet silence during which time each practitioner is encouraged to find his or her own comfort on the mat. Suitable for all levels including very beginner.
