Samskara Yoga Class Descriptions
Ashtanga yoga is an eight-limbed system that encompasses more than the physical practice of yoga (asana or postures). Ashtanga asanas or postures are repeated in each class, in the same order, to provide students with a deeper insight into the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual changes that may occur over time. Ashtanga classes include no music, except for the sound of your breath. Ashtanga classes are perfect for all levels.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Power Vinyasa yoga links breath to each movement in a class. We build heat through breathing techniques based on Ashtanga yoga, add in creative asana sequencing and music that will keep you motivated through savasana. Power Vinyasa yoga classes are all levels, ages, and abilities.
Yoga Foundations for Beginners
Our beginner yoga classes are a slower, more in-depth approach to the physical practice of yoga. We teach foundational yoga postures and encourage a gentle breath-to-movement experience. All levels and bodies can create their own understanding of a pose or asana, in a comfortable, non-judgmental environment for exploration and discovery.
Yin yoga is the complement to yang styles of yoga, such as vinyasa or Ashtanga. In most yoga classes, students experience yin postures prior to the final resting pose (savasana), allowing fascia and connective tissues around the joints to strengthen. These slower postures encourage flexibility and range of motion. Yin yoga is accessible to all levels, all ages, and all abilities.
Samskara Stars! Kids Yoga
A kids yoga practice allows our little ones to begin a journey of understanding their own minds, bodies, and spirits. From creating fun shapes with our bodies to discovering tools to self-regulate and calm our minds, kids yoga is a co-creative experience, where we all meet on the mat without judgment.
Parent & Me
Yoga means connection, or to join. As parents, we struggle to find time to just BE with our little ones. Parent & Me yoga classes offer the time and intention of practicing yoga together with your little one(s). Share your time on the mat, laugh and grow together in love and play in our kid-friendly, parent-supported class.
Based on our Balanced Body Movement & Awareness class, Family/Homeschool yoga is an opportunity for all ages to get on their mats together to begin or enhance a current yoga practice.
Balanced Body Movement & Awareness
This class allows you to understand your body’s needs in a non-judgmental space, where all levels participate and grow together. You will learn the unique structure of your body, how it can change progressively with a regular breath-to-movement practice, and how to apply simple postures during your day to reduce physical, mental, and emotional stress. Beginner, Intermediate, & Advanced.
