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.

Flow & Restore

This class is dedicated to the sacred practice of Ashtanga Yoga. It is a led Ashtanga class where we will do the Primary Series, or Yoga Chikitsa, at each class. This is an active practice and it’s best to have some yoga experience. Read more about this style of yoga here.

Mysore Ashtanga

90 minutes

This class honors the Ashtanga Yoga tradition as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Arrive together and join in the opening chant together, but the practice in the Mysore setting is led by your own individual rhythm while under the supervision of the instructor in the room. Practice the Asthanga sequence at your own pace, and receive individual hands-on assists and verbal guidance  when needed to help you dive deeper into your own personal practice but still feel the energy of practicing in a group setting. If you’re new to the Asthanga practice, we recommend our monthly Intro to Asthanga Course.

This class provides a peaceful atmosphere to allow the body, mind, and spirit to rejuvenate itself. Props (blankets and blocks) are used to prevent stress on the body. The mind finds space through the breath to be open to new ideas and patterns. Balancing the body and mind through the breath allows the nervous system to relax and the immune system to function better. When you leave a class you will feel at ease physically and emotionally.
