It is our hope that your practice transforms you creatively, spiritually, and physically to a state where the mind is quiet and the body is toned. The Sanskrit word “Yoga” has many meanings and is derived from the root “yuj” meaning “to control,” “to yoke,” or “to unite.” The physical practice of Yoga unites the mind, body and spirit through conscious breathing and movement.

Yoga practice is just that – practice. In order to receive the benefits of anything, a certain amount of work must be performed, along with a strong commitment. Contrary to popular myth, flexibility is not a prerequisite to Yoga. As a matter of fact, some of the greatest benefits are realized by those who are not flexible (yet).

Types of Yoga

Gentle Yoga focuses on stretching and toning muscles that are often neglected, but so important to keeping you healthy and mobile. Gentle Yoga is open to all levels and is perfect for beginners as well as people with specific limitations and those recovering from injury. More experienced students who enjoy a slower-paced class also enjoy Gentle Yoga. Designed to help you learn the basic movements of yoga for better balance, stronger bones and muscles, and better mental clarity. This soothing gentle class focuses on an exploration of basic yoga poses and how to connect them through attention to breathing, alignment and mindfulness. Expect lots of deep stretching and exploration of floor poses. Meditation and relaxation techniques will also be introduced, perfect for stress relief and overall well being. 

Gentle Vinyasa is open to all levels of practitioners.  It is a great chance for beginners or those who have practiced at length and want to explore poses part-by-part focusing on strengthening the foundations of each position.  We will maintain slow and steady transitions from pose to pose, keeping the circulation nice and even.  This is an excellent course for connecting breath, body, and details in order to explore one's own practice, deepen flexibility, strengthen, and find balance.  

All-Level Slow Flow is designed for all levels whether you're an athlete or spectator!  We'll develop better breathing techniques while improving balance, strength, and flexibility with poses that flow together and are held for varying lengths of time. You'll learn to connect with your breath, basic alignment, and develop strength and confidence. This course is excellent for people looking to deepend their practice through slowing sequences or for the beginner looking to flow. Modifications are made in order for everyone to move further in their individual practice.

Buti Yoga is a calorie scorching workout that fuses power yoga with cardio-intensive tribal dance and body sculpting primal movement for women.  It utilizes the spiral structure technique to sculpt and tone the deep abdominal muscles that stabilize and strengthen the body.  Instructor is Michelle Zydorczyk.

Chair Yoga is a good practice for those who have trouble getting on and off the floor, have knee/hip/back problems or limited mobility. As with all types of yoga, this class can help reduce stress and improve mental clarity.  All poses can be modified to meet the physical needs of any participant.  Regular participation in this class can improve core strength and balance.  We will focus on breath work as well, which can aid in  stress and pain management.  Great opportunities to meet people and socialize!

Flow Yoga is designed for all levels. The pace is energetic yet comfortable as we move through flow sequences that build confident alignment in essential yoga poses. After gently awakening and warming the body, we progress to flowing sequences investigating the connection between breath, movement and the mind. We will take time to break poses down, deepen our breath, and explore transitions. You will be encouraged to move at your own pace as you explore meditative flows of movement linked to breath, classical yoga postures and creative variations.
