OUR CLASSES

We offer a variety of classes to suit your level of experience and practice style

 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - All Levels

Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous, flowing practice where we link our breath to our movements. If there are several beginners in the room you can expect a slower more instructional practice and a great opportunity to focus on your breath and your patience!

Tues, Trs,  Fri 12:10 - 1pm

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - 4 Beginners

The Fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga will be taught in this class, introducing sun salutations, the standing sequence, and the first few seated postures. You'll be challenged but plenty of options to modify will be offered.

CLASS TIMES:

Wednesdays 9:30 - 11:00am

Restorative Yoga (All Levels)

This is a very slow class with long holds to tap into the deeper connective tissue and structure of the body, with an emphasis on relaxation. This popular class is perfect for those with a tight body looking to try yoga for the first time, or those who just need to slow down and take some time to rest and restore.

CLASS TIMES:

Mondays 7:00 - 8:00pm

Tuesdays 7:00 - 8:15pm

Thursdays 9:30 - 10:45am

Fridays 7:00 - 8:15pm

Saturdays 11:30 - 12:45pm

Yin Yoga (All Levels)

Yin is a practice of deep stillness, sensation & meditation. In this class you can expect to hold poses for longer periods of time (usually between 4-8 minutes) and find support with a variety of props. Yin Yoga differs from Restorative Yoga in the fact that in Yin we seek to find our edge of sensation. This edge allows a deep opening to happen in our connective tissues - our fascia, tendons, & ligaments. This is a great practice for flexibility, joint mobility, chronic pain management, stress relief, & so much more.

CLASS TIMES:

Thursdays 4 - 5:15pm
Sundays 7 - 8:30pm

Power Flow Yoga (All Levels)

Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements. You'll have a great time and likely some laughs, perhaps stepping out of your comfort zone trying new things. Modifications are always offered.

CLASS TIMES:

Wednesdays 6:30 - 7:45pm
Saturdays 3 - 4:15pm

Sundays 3 - 4:15pm

 

MYSORE PROGRAM

Learn at your own pace, free from the constraints that come with practicing in a led class environment. 

The Mysore method allows for 1-on-1 instruction and more specific guidance from the teacher. There is no prior knowledge or experience required to attend this class. The teacher(s) will assist each student as necessary and will work individually with the students, as they move at their own pace through a set series of postures.

 

In Mysore class you show up anytime during the posted hours and will be taught the Ashtanga sequence one posture at a time (practice starts at around 20 minutes). As you repeat the postures daily, you gradually increase your knowledge and create an independent, personal practice. New students are required to commit to a consistent Mysore practice of at least 3x per week.

 

Students interested to join Mysore are asked to email Jan Goranson to register.

 

Mysore memberships include all of the classes on our schedule (aside from those that are registered).

*Please note the new member special of $49/month does not apply to our Mysore program.
*Autopay requires 30 days notice to cancel
