These classes consist of static postures held for longer periods of time. We emphasize proper alignment and mental focus here. Students gain balance, flexibility, strength, and confidence in these classes. Each instructor incorporates their own training and background into their teaching, so you can expect to learn something new each time you step into the room. The room temperature for our Hatha classes will be between 100 and 103 degrees.
These classes are flowing and intuitive, and sequenced dynamically and with intention. These classes are therapeutic and challenging, and suitable for all levels. The room is a little cooler for these classes -- a comfortably warm 85 degrees.
Everyone is welcome in all our classes, but if you're unsure of the heat, this might be a good class to start with.
Vinyasa classes are a bit faster-paced, and place great emphasis on pranayama (breath control). These classes may be more aerobically challenging, but will rapidly build strength and flexibility. It is recommended that you have at least a few classes’ worth of experience in other classes before taking this class. The temperature for this class will be set to 95 degrees, but you will sweat just as much as in our hotter classes!
Learn the basics of AcroYoga, a combination of yoga and partner acrobatics. This class moves quickly and you will learn to fly, fall, and base (take the weight of other people) in a way that is healthy and safe for your body. Some previous experience in yoga, dance or other movement training recommended. No partner necessary.
Yin Yoga is a more restful practice involving holding postures for a long period of time to allow the muscles and connective tissues to release. This is a more passive form of yoga which uses gravity and the shapes of the poses to achieve the effect, rather than more active engagement. It is a very relaxing and calming practice and a perfect way to end the day.
The room is gently heated to 80-85 degrees for our Yin classes.
