Class Descriptions

Back To Basics

Our BACK TO BASICS class encourages students at any level to embrace a beginner’s mindset. This is the perfect place to gain an understanding of alignment and fundamentals. It is a slow-paced class where we often break down common poses and transitions, so you can develop a safe and confident physical yoga practice.

Cool It Downdog

With fluid, intelligent sequencing and creative transitions, COOL IT DOWNDOG classes feature a slow tempo and long holds without the heat. Eliminating the distraction of heat creates opportunity for the student to discover what is possible through the postures. Classes work on building strength, stamina, balance, and flexibility. The deliberate pace facilitates exploration within the postures, while the intentional longer holds help increase strength and mobility throughout the major muscle groups. Modifications and challenges are offered to suit all levels of ability.

Cool Power

Power classes are generally heated to 95+ degrees with the exception of our COOL POWER class, which is not hot. Eliminating the distraction of heat creates opportunity for the student to discover what is possible through the postures.

You will leave feeling empowered, sweaty, and wrung out. In these classes you are not asked to create the perfect posture, rather you are asked to challenge yourself through breath, and to listen to feedback from your body and mind.

Meditation+

Self-care and self-love at their finest! Allow yourself this beautiful hour of mind-body-spirit rest and relaxation. Sit or lay down and get comfy. Close those eyes. Go inward. Listen to beautiful, healing music and gentle, encouraging words. Soak up soothing reiki healing energy. Then go out into the world feeling lighter, brighter, and more in-tune with YOU. This is an experience of realization, about finding peace and balance.

This is an all-levels class, no experience is necessary. There is no movement in this class, it is all done seated or laying down.

Shut Up + Breathe

The term “monkey mind” describes a mind that jumps from thought to thought like a monkey jumps from tree to tree. The monkey mind cannot exist in the present moment, but rather is constantly distracted by the thoughts that pass through. Beginner friendly SHUT UP & BREATHE classes incorporate methods we can use to train the mind to focus on the present; gentle movement (asana), breathwork (pranayama), and meditation. Learning to disengage from the monkey mind helps us to be calmer, less stressed, and more productive.

Strengthen Yoga

A unique fitness class (proprietary to The Woods Yoga), STRENGTHEN YOGA was designed by one of America's top trainers specifically for yoga practitioners. It embodies the timeless concepts of physical culture: how to train for maximum functional strength, how to make the body more durable, more resilient, and less prone to injury. Classes incorporate a variety of tools and techniques including suspension, kettlebells, dumbbells, bodyweight exercises, and traditional asana. Ideal for the avid gym-goer, yoga novice (or enthusiast), person rehabbing from injury, professional athlete, or anyone with advanced training needs. Like a small group personal training session. Class size is limited, pre-registration is recommended.
