Hot vinyasa all levels - classes are held in a studio heated with far infrared radiant heat to between 90-95 degrees. Vinyasa is the Sanskrit term for flow and refers to alignment of breath and movement to create a dynamic and vigorous, flowing form of yoga. Sometimes poses are held for a specific number of breaths before moving on to the next pose, and other times you will move with one breath one movement. Emphasis is on your breath and how your body feels.  You are encouraged to listen to your body to guide you through your practice, always going at your own pace. Hot Vinyasa yoga is suited for all levels, assistance and/or modifications will be offered during class as needed.


Hot vinyasa yoga basics -  is similar to the hot vinyasa all levels class but at a slower pace with more emphasis on alignment and basic techniques. The studio is between 80-85 degrees. Appropriate for all levels, but especially beginners and those looking for a calmer experience.


Restorative yoga -  is meant to bring your body back into balance in a slow and gentle way. The postures use bolsters and blocks to assist the body into deep long held poses to release tension, stress and sometimes even chronic pain. Bolsters, blocks and straps are provided, you may want to bring your own blanket for extra support.  Studio heated to a comfortable temperature, not hot.


Pilates - classes consist of a series of exercises that focus on the core, which includes abdominals, glutes and lower back. This type of exercise is meant to strengthen and lengthen all muscle groups creating a long, lean and strong body. Pilates is a wonderful complement to hot vinyasa yoga or restorative yoga. All are mind/body exercises focusing on breath to connect the mind and body.
