What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa yoga emphasizes the connection between movement and breath. The word “vinyasa” is Sanskrit for “to place in a special way.” Classes are sequenced with intelligence and intention to serve the students’ wellbeing and health, promote mindfulness and presence, and to allow for space for students to develop deep understanding of themselves, body and mind. Classes combine periods of fluid movement with much needed stillness in order to relax and rejuvenate.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle Yoga is a practice that balances slow movement with reflective pauses in order to slow down and be gentle with yourself. These classes typically begin standing, move to seated postures, and end lying down in order to minimize the need to get up and down off the floor throughout the class. 

All Levels Vinyasa

All Levels means just that- a class for all levels. This class alternates fluid movement with moments of passes to leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Teachers offer modifications and variations throughout the class to make sure that everyone has a place to be in any given posture. 

Flow. Breathe. Pause.

Enjoy the luxury of ninety minutes on your mat. We will take our time flowing through approximately 75 minutes of vinyasa yoga followed by pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. 

 

Private yoga sessions

Why is this useful?

Private sessions serve many different purposes. Maybe you are new  to yoga and would like to receive one-on-one instruction to develop confidence and basic understanding of vinyasa yoga. Maybe you prefer practicing alone or with a small group of friends. Maybe there is a pose or set of poses that you are working on and would like the opportunity to receive specific pointers and the time to explore. No matter the reason, private yoga sessions can play a valuable role in your yoga practice.

What is therapeutic yoga?

Therapeutic yoga offers specific healing techniques and exercises in order to help you achieve optimal health. It is perfect for those with chronic illness or pain, those recovering from injury or illness, or those looking to learn more about the inner workings of the body and breath from a more anatomical perspective. We will go through a series of range of motion and postural assessments in order to look at what is tight, what is weak, what is out of balance in order to understand what's going on before moving forward with a plan.
