This class is a balanced practice of hatha and meditation led by an experienced teacher in a candlelit room. The structure of the class recognizes the ongoing yin/yang balance of daily life. At the end of the day the body and muscles are warm and can benefit from movement, stretching and strengthening. And, as we move towards bedtime the body may also feel fatigue and will enjoy relation into nourishing and peaceful full body meditation practices such as yoga nidra/yogic sleep.
With a greater emphasis on somatic exploration and modification, this class offers a gentler approach to traditional yoga asana, as well as an opportunity to slowly build into postures and strengthen. Perfect for those who have physical limitations, are returning to practice after healing from an injury, beginners, or seekers of a more calming focused practice.
Refine + Explore
Practice the integration of body, mind, and spirit in this 90 minute intermediate/advanced practice. We will explore the subtleties of asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditation. Expect to move deeper into your body in quiet yet powerful ways.
Soothe your body and your soul in this relaxing class! The restorative practice helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which tells the body to rest and digest (as opposed to fight-or-flight) and is great for anyone with an active life. During this class, you will rest in bliss-producing restorative poses done on the floor with supportive props to help the body release. Recharge your energy reserves, heal the effects of stress, and bring your nervous system into a more balanced state through restorative yoga.
Slow + Steady
Slow down your breath and your movement while cultivating strength, flexibility, and resilience. Through intentionally linked poses you will experience physical engagement while detailed alignment cues ensure stability and safety in each asana.
This class offers effort and ease in equilibrium. You are invited to explore your strength and stability through a carefully crafted movement sequence. Then, move into gentle, grounded restorative poses meant to cultivate quiet in the body and mind.
Yin + Meditation
Yin Yoga is a yoga practice based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang – the opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things. Yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect of things. When looking at the body, the stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are considered to be yin, while the mobile and pliable muscles and the blood are considered yang.
In this class you will restore the body in a gentle practice where postures, mainly focused on the lower body, are passively held for several minutes. Yin Yoga is an opportunity to turn your focus inward and slowly open the body. Yin Yoga is an all-levels class. It is a gentle practice where flexibility is not required. It can be intense in that the postures are held for longer periods of time to generate both physical and emotional tension release. You will feel connected, open, stretched, energetically softened, more present, and relieved of deep tension.
