Come and join our beautiful studio. We offer a variety of yoga classes from flow to restorative. We are a welcoming community committed to helping people of all ages and abilities heal through movement. Yoga will change your life.

Qi Gong

Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese practice that decreases stress and increases our energy levels. A Qi Gong class will begin with breathing exercises intended to relax the body and focus our energy on the present moment. Next, we will move into a combination of stretching and activating exercises to clear lines of tension. Flowing exercises and standing postures will bring energy into our body through focused slow and relaxing movements. We will end class with a meditation intended to center and ground our energy that we gathered during the practice. Qi Gong is used to maintain health and vitality by strengthening your immune, cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, circulatory and lymphatic systems. It can also be used to heal and recover from conditions in the physical body, calm the mind and connect with a higher power. It is a fun and easy practice that can be done by any age group without any special equipment. Most of the class is spent standing but can easily be modified to a chair if needed. 

Restorative Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the practice and art of Yogic Sleep.  In this class you will be guided through a detailed sleep meditation that will allow your mind and body to slip into a deep state of relaxation.  The brain will switch from beta to alpha waves, signaling the transition from activity to meditation. It is an incredibly healing practice, good for creating ease in the body and stillness and insight in the mind. The benefits of a regular Yoga Nidra practice are numerous and can be especially helpful to counteract the effects of stress and anxiety that are prevalent in our modern, busy culture. Receive deep rest and restoration in this extremely healing practice that is done entirely lying down.  This one hour class begins with gentle yin or restorative poses to prepare the body, some mindful breathing to still the mind and follows with about 35 – 40 minutes of blissfully relaxing Yoga Nidra.  It is accessible to all and no prior experience with yoga or meditation is necessary.

Intuitive Ashtanga

Your instructor takes the core practice of Ashtanga and tweaks, adjusts, adds, and skips to allow flexibility and variability within the practice. It’s a lighthearted fun bootcamp yoga where your instructor applies his years of experience and is doing the practice with you. Variations will be given to meet you where you’re at, but he will encourage you to push past your edge and practice being comfortable being uncomfortable. It’s going to be challenging and savasana is going to feel amazing at the end!

Energy Medicine Yoga®

Energy Medicine Yoga is an integrative practice, uniting ancient healing methods with modern science. Classic yoga postures are woven and paired with Energy Medicine techniques to communicate with the body in its own language and innate wisdom. By focusing on your body as a living system of energy, you are empowered to self-heal, thrive and flow in the life you are meant to live. 

Energy Medicine Yoga is for all levels of students, including beginners.

Shiva Avtar

Aquarian Yoga

‘Aquarian Yoga’ is the yogic technology of Kundalini Yoga (also known as the ‘Yoga of Awareness’) It is a powerful tradition that teaches you how to become more aware of and live from your authentic self. This class combines yoga postures with breath work and chanting sacred mantras. Regular practice of this yoga balances the Master Glands and strengthens the nervous system. You will learn how to create balance in mind, body, and Soul. ‘Aquarian Yoga’ will meet you where you need to be met.

  • It is a good idea to come to class with an empty stomach.
  • Drink water before you come to class and have some water with you for after class.
  • Wear what you are going to be comfortable in. Light clothing that can breathe and is made of natural fabric such as cotton is best.

Kriya Class

This class will be a combination of Kriyas, breathwork and a gentle flow. Kriyas use breathwork, mudras, hatha yoga asana, movement and mantras. Kriyas help channel our energy, increase our stamina, and help us develop more capacity to live, breathe and move in our life and on the mat. We end the class with a meditation. 

Gentle Yoga and Meditation

This class is a rejuvenating and relaxing class. We will move through a gentle yoga flow and end each class with a Yoga Nidra (guided meditation). 

Yin yoga with meditation

This is a quiet restorative practice that focuses on opening the deep tissues of the body. Most of class is done seated or lying down. This practice targets your deep connective tissues including fascia, ligaments, joints and bones. You will hold poses for a longer period of time then other types of yoga teaching you to go inward and focus on the sensations in your body. Yin helps to free blockages in the body so that you can move more freely. At the end of class you will be guided through a meditation helping to integrate the practice and keep your mind calm and energy running freely through your body.

All Level Flow

Energize your body and mind through a guided series of movements focusing on strength, stretch, core and breathing. This flow class is available to everyone whether you’ve been taking yoga for years or your brand new. Flow is a great way to strengthen and stretch you’re body and calm your mind.

Kaiut Yoga

Kaiut Yoga is focused on the biomechanics of the body- specifically the joints. Most body issues (biomechanics) stem from the body’s girdles- ankle, hip and/or shoulder. Our bodies collect traumas throughout our lifetime- be it from a remembered accident to a forgotten tumble or fall. The body gets affected and the results are accumulated issues, pain and stiffness.

Kaiut Yoga addresses these problems by opening up the joints to allow fluid, blood and energy to flow through. It finds the blockages within the body and helps to dissolve those restrictions over time. It also helps to neurologically change our brains and establish different patterns of movement and new memories pertaining to those changes.

The beauty of Kaiut Yoga is it truly is for everybody. It’s for the young and the old (age is really only a number here!), the super tight to the very flexible, the recently injured to those who have been living with old injuries. It’s for people who are just coming back from a surgery to people who are trying to avoid surgery. It’s a practice that can support you on your wellness path and keep you feeling healthy and young for the rest of your life.

Barre

Barre is a workout technique inspired by ballet, dance, yoga and Pilates. It elongates and strengthens your body using low impact movements. This class will improve your balance, strength and flexibility all while keeping your body safe and improving your posture.

Sound Bowl Meditation

Sound Bowl Meditation

What a beautiful way to go into your evening. Being bathed by Crystal Alchemy bowls allows  the mind to harmonize with the heart bringing coherence to the Body Mind Soul connection. Danny intention is that his playing is a soothing and graceful way of meditation.

You are invited to be comfortable in laying down or sitting,  keep an awareness on your breath and allow the waves of sound in. Come with an intention and let release it into the tones and waves of the bowls.   It is a wonderful experience and it can carry you through out the night and even week.
