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. If you are new to yoga, revisiting it after a long break, or wanting to enhance your practice, this class is for you. You will explore healthy alignment and actions of foundational poses, focus on breath, and build a solid groundwork for your personal practice.

 

Class is non-heated, although you can expect a slight temperature increase toward the end of class as we begin heating the room for the next class on the schedule. Studio heat is approximate and can fluctuate due to outside temperature, number of students in class, etc. We aim to keep the room around 78 degrees. 

Guided Meditation + Energy Healing

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. 

 

This is slow, mindful class that brings the body into balance while increasing its natural range of motion. Most poses are done seated or lying down. As we move into stillness, we bring body, breath and soul into harmony. It’s a perfect complement to a more physical practice. You will leave class feeling refreshed, renewed and restored.

 

Class is essentially non-heated and may be slightly warmer than room temperature for your comfort. Studio heat is approximate and can fluctuate due to outside temperature, number of students in class, etc. We aim to keep the room around 78 degrees.
