Flow: In this Vinyasa class, we focus on linking breath with movement.

Mind-body connection and physical growth are both fostered in this class. This class is best for practitioners with basic yoga knowledge. The room will be heated to 75-80 degrees.
Power Flow: Recommended for intermediate practitioners. Power Flow provides an added challenge to your practice by introducing more challenging (optional) postures. We will work to link breath and movement as you cultivate strength from the inside out. Modifications are offered so you can make it your own practice at your own level. The room will be heated to 85-90 degrees. Be ready to sweat!
Barre: Barre utilizes moves inspired by ballet, yoga, and Pilates using the barre for balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements to create long, lean, sculpted muscles. This class is heated to 75-80 degrees.
Iron Flow: Iron flow incorporates hand weights and high-intensity cardio bursts for a maximum calorie burning effect while remaining true to the foundation of yoga and the vinyasa flow sequence. This class is heated to 75-80 degrees.
Beginning Flow: This class is designed as an introduction to the practice of yoga. This class focuses on developing clear and safe alignment in foundation poses. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes; you just have to be willing to try.
Restorative: Calm the mind and body with this soothing Restorative Yoga class. Restorative yoga poses require no muscular exertion; each pose is held for several minutes and deeply supported by props – blankets, bolsters, and blocks. During the class, you will be guided to mindfully and consciously notice thoughts and sensations in your body. Students leave feeling nourished, well rested and refreshed; with a new cultivated awareness and clarity. Guided Meditation is also incorporated throughout the class. No yoga or meditation experience is needed and all levels are welcome.
Yin: Yin Yoga invites you to slow down and create space for stillness while nourishing joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Yin is yoga at its coolest, deepest, quietest, stillest moments. This class will have you on the floor most of the time, using as many props needed to create as little effort while holding poses. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes allowing fascia to release. This class will complement your Vinyasa practice and will open and release areas in need of more. Class will end with a brief meditation.
