Hot Yoga classes influenced by traditional styles of Yoga (Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga & Forrest)
that are jam-packed with fresh CULTURE and FUNK.
Vinyasa classes maintain awareness and focus on the breath while moving through a vigorous series of postures. Each class is unique but all follow a progression through a warm-up, variations of Sun Salutation sequences, stretches, and a final relaxation. Vinyasa classes are heated and available to all levels. Every class offers an opportunity for personal expression (beginner & advanced) and movement patterns within the sequence.

Was created by and named after Ana T. Forrest in 1982. Reputed for its intensity, the style emphasizes the breath and one's feelings to work through the physical and emotional challenges.
Forrest Yoga classes are conducted in a heated room and begin with pranayama, then move through seated poses and abdominal muscle exercises before arriving at the part of the class that might involve sun salutations, standing poses, backbends, and other asanas that build up to the more challenging poses.

Slow Flow classes emphasize peace and calm in body and mind. You hold poses longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving with each breath. Classes are heated and available to all levels. Every class offers an opportunity for personal expression (beginner & advanced) and movement patterns within your own practice.

Ashtanga class is similar to a Vinyasa practice. Typically begins with five repetitions of Surya Mamaskara A and then B, followed by a standing sequence. Teachers guide the practice, adjusting and assisting with postures and leading students through The Primary Series ( Yoga Chikitsa or Yoga for heath), followed by a standard closing sequence.

Yin Yoga classes target the deep connective tissues between the muscles and the fascia throughout the body. Holding poses that gently lengthen the muscles and fascia helps shift these blockages, and applying mild stress on joints and connective tissues can increase their range of motion. The goal is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. Injury, and daily life, among other factors can bind our connective tissues together, restricting that movement. This blocks the flow of nutrients and energy through the body, causing pain and limiting mobility.

These private classes use specific exercises to condition and stretch the body to improve getting into, balancing, and out of inversions. The class is 30 minutes of instructional exercises using a unique series of postures to warm the body up and 20-30 minutes of inversion (typically on the wall) practice.
Whether you have never been upside down before or you are an advanced practitioner, these classes are designed to further strengthen and stabilize your arms, shoulders, wrists, and core while gaining body awareness.
