Also known as Bikram Hot Yoga, this class is set at 40 degrees Celsius, and 40% humidity. Don't let that scare you off. This class is amazing to help heal your body from the inside out. A set series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. This class is the exact same every time you take it, specifically put in the same order so as to best warm you up and prepare you for each posture to follow. This makes the class great for a beginner to start with, due to the familiarity you will soon have with the practice. This series is designed for anyone from experienced practioners to someone who has never done a yoga class in their life. We welcome all ages, however anyone under the age of 13 would be allowed to come into the hot room at the floor series which is about half way through class. This yoga is designed to work every internal organ, joint and muscle of the body. The key to success in this class is listening to your body, so remember to take it slow and do the best you can. This class is great for all levels of ability, and is the best place to start if you have any past or current injuries.
A class designed for you by Pauline. Fusion is a blend between the specific postures of the 26 & 2 class and the variations of these postures often found in some of the flow classes offered at the studio. As in the 26 & 2 series, each posture is done twice, but the difference here is that the second set will not be the same as the first set - it will be a variation of, or progression into, another pose. This class style is a great way to learn how to transition between the 26 & 2 class and the flow classes.
This series of postures was originally designed from the 26 & 2 series and then combined with a flow sequence. This class will bring all of your other yang styles together while challenging you in new and exciting ways.
This class combines a yang style of yoga, either our Power Vinyasa Flow or Fusion, with a calming yin yoga. The first sixty minutes of class will be your yang practice followed by thirty minutes of yin. The type of yang being offered will always be indicated in the class title, so look out for Power Yang/Yin or Fusion Yang/Yin to see what you are in for. It is truly an experience you do not want to miss!
An invigorating practice that will challenge, build strength and core stability, and stretch your body. Within this practice there are modifications and variations. The yoga sequence includes sun salutations, standing, seated, balancing and twisting poses, and will include fun arm balances and inversions. Get ready to have fun, play with your edges, and discover your full potential!
This is a physical form of yoga which synchronizes breath and movement through a precise series of movements called the Primary Series. This class is done in a warm to hot room where the teacher will guide you through your practice. We offer 60, 75, and 90 minutes Ashtanga classes, so expect to do a wider variety of postures in the longer classes.
Coming from a flow series background this class focuses primarily on the lower half of the body and to stabalize the core. It will allow you to explore some deeper hip opening poses as well as a couple longer holds. Don’t be surprised if you use blocks or straps in this class from time to time!
This is a foundation Hatha class that uses postures and conscious breathing in combination with mental focus to develop awareness, physical endurance, flexibility, and relaxation. Through proper alignment and mindful actions in the body, Hatha yoga brings balance, strength, and a sense of well-being to the practitioner.
Yin Yoga directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. It targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
This is a slow and nourishing practice which allows you to give into your body weight and gravity fully. It is a deeply relaxing practice which allows your body to completely relax while holding poses from 5 to 10 minutes at a time with the support of props such as bolsters, blocks and straps. This class is recommended for everyone!
This is a great high energy class that focuses on core strength. Making sure the glutes, back and abs are all being used simultaneously to create a fun and effective class for all levels. Working at your own pace with a set series of 30 seconds of work and 30 seconds of rest for an entire 60 minute class will surely make sure you feel it tomorrow!
