CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Each level offers an opportunity to progressively deepen your practice and to explore new and increasingly challenging postures.  We encourage you to try out the different levels and find the one that suits your practice at any given time.

All Levels: designed for students wishing to deepen their understanding of the foundations of yoga postures. In the All Levels class, sequences are varied and include an emphasis on breathing and alignment. Students are encouraged to work at their own level.

Flow and Roll: an all-levels Hatha-based flow class finishing with myofascial release work. Each class will explore a Hatha yoga sequence focusing on breath, alignment and fluid movement and will finish with a deeper release into the muscle and fascia using targeted myofascial rolling. The benefits of including myofasical release work as part of your yoga practice include the physical release of muscle knots and tight fascia, an improvement of blood flow, and improved range of motion.

Hatha Flow: in this faster paced class, you’ll find sun salutations, breath work, intermediate poses, as well as guided relaxation. Some yoga experience suggested. Great for challenging your strength and flexibility.

Hips and Hamstrings: a yoga class geared towards runners, cyclists and anyone experiencing tightness in their hips and hamstrings.  A range of poses and movements will be explored to invite greater flexibility, strength and mobility for fluidity and ease of movement.

Kripalu Flow: approaches asana practice with emphasis on meditation and breathwork, and encourages inward focus and spiritual attunement on and off the mat. Kripalu Yoga supports physical healing, psychological growth, and spiritual awakening. The three stages of Kripalu yoga include: willful practice (focus on alignment, breath, and presence), willful surrender (holding of poses), and meditation in motion (the body’s complete release of internal tensions).

Level 1: a great class for beginners or for those with a little experience wanting to explore more challenging postures.

Level 2: Refine and Deepen: for regular practitioners with yoga experience, this class is an opportunity to refine and deepen your practice.
