Class Descriptions

Our classes are taught with modifications of intensity to accommodate and challenge you no matter your level of fitness. All fitness and experience levels are welcome. If you are new, please let the instructor know at the beginning of the class. We want you to have a fabulous experience and to feel safe at the same time.
NOTE:
Class titles that include a + sign indicate that a balance of both workouts will be included. Attending a variety of classes is highly recommended to maximize strength, weight-loss/maintenance, flexibility & overall fitness

BEGINNER YOGA . . .
Never practiced yoga? This class is a gentle way to learn more about yoga in a safe and relaxing atmosphere. Students will learn the benefits of yoga, incorporating basic yoga asana (postures), proper yogic breathing, and relaxation techniques to suit all levels and ages. This is an excellent introduction for new students and also great for the intermediate/experienced student looking to fine tune their practice.

CORE: TBC (Total Body Conditioning) . . .
This conditioning class targets the common problem areas and incorporates a mixture of core strength work, stretches and exercises for the legs, thighs, buttocks and stomach areas. If you want to get a firm core and tone deeply, this is a great workout for you!

YOGA . . .
In this open-level class you’ll experience all the benefits of yoga. We practice poses (asana), breathing well and sequencing to bring balance to your mind, body and spirit.

RESTORATIVE YOGA . . .
This class builds a safe, comfortable environment for participants to be guided into deep relaxation poses – designed to stretch and open your body at a deep level using longer supported postures and breathing techniques. You’ll leave feeling refreshed, inspired and restored.

YIN YOGA . . .
A perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin poses are held for a period of time during which we apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation and mobility in the joints.

YIN YOGA FLOW . . .
A flowing hatha practice is woven together with Yin poses to create a powerful fusion flow. Yin poses are held for approximately 3 minutes to enhance the flow of prana (life force) in the tissues around the joints, where energy often stagnates.
YOGA NIDRA  . . .
Yoga Nidra, or ‘yogic sleep’ is a deeply relaxing, meditative and healing practice. It has been used for centuries to achieve the deepest possible state of physical relaxation while maintaining consciousness. Said to be yoga’s best kept secret, regular practice of Yoga Nidra is a mentally and physically stress-releasing tool for positive change while employing the power of intention to manifest well-being. The class consists of brief, gentle movement to get the energy pathways open with the majority of the time spent in deep physical relaxation while consciously aware. While the body is in this deepest conscious ‘sleep’ the mind is guided into meditation techniques that relax the nervous system and use the deep brainwave state’s creative power of manifestation. This is the ultimate relaxing, healing and manifestation tool!
YOGA PHILOSOPHY FLOW or  Vidyā Vinyasa Yoga . . .
Vidyā is the Sanskrit word for knowledge and learning = philosophical knowledge. (Moreover, vidyā is an epithet of Sarasvati, the Hindu Goddess of Wisdom. Sarasvati purifies and uplifts each individual with her divine, spiritual, and feminine energy.) Vinyasa may be translated in many ways. However, from the Sanskrit Vi means: variation or in a special way and, Nyasa means to place. Hence,Vinyasa may be understood as: the sequential movement, or placing, of postures in a continuous flow, linked with the breath. Yoga means union. Thus, Vidyā Vinyasa Yoga means asanas practiced with yoga philosophy that link Body, Breath, and Mind together allowing each student to feel their own divine, spiritual energy. Vidya Vinyasa Yoga will incorporate a full range of yoga techniques, such as: asana, pranayama, bandhas, mudras, and psychic sleep – together with yoga philosophy drawn from classical and contemporary sources. Our practice will purify and uplift the student with the divine, spiritual, and feminine energy of the Goddess of Wisdom.
FUSION MAT PILATES . . .
A multi-level mat class that focuses on core strength and stability through traditional and contemporary Pilates movements. A variety of props will be used to help achieve strength, flexibility, coordination and balance.
YOGA + PILATES . . .
Emphasis on strengthening the core (lower abdominal and postural muscles), using classical mat Pilates exercises infused with yoga poses to increase strength and flexibility.
BARRE . . .
Designed to effectively strengthen, tone and balance the entire body. We offer fat burning workouts that integrate the use of the barre and various props. Focus on form and precision while performing small isometric movements as instructors emphasize basic alignment, foundation, and specific actions.
BARRE + STRENGTH . . .
With the use of light hand weights and the barre, train your legs, arms, and core toward the look and alignment of a well-defined athlete or dancer.
BARRE + CARDIO . . .
Using the same micro movements to deeply tone and shape your muscles as in our standard Barre class and adding calorie burning, heart rate inducing cardio along with it.

MEDITATION . . .
