YOGA

Hatha Yoga encompasses all styles of yoga but generally it is a relaxed class with longer held postures which focus on stretch and mind body connection. Hatha Yoga is the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.

Kripalu Yoga is a mindful and slow style of Hatha Yoga. Classes begin with fluid warm-ups and centered breathing followed by postures, modified for the students’ individual needs. We build strength and focus by holding the poses and deepening the breath.

Power Flow Yoga combines fewer poses which are held longer than a vinyasa flow class. Since poses in Power Flow Yoga are held longer it tends towards more strength building than flexibility.

Yoga Conditioning This strength based yoga class incorporates light hand weights into traditional yoga postures with a focus on core stability.

Yogalates This is an all level class that blends together the precision of Pilates and mindfulness of yoga. It is the perfect combination of strengthening and stretching to make your body feel strong and rejuvenated.
