SAMSKARA 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 the same order in each class providing 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
Vinyasa Flow yoga links breath to movement in a class. We build internal 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.
Vinyasa Foundations (Beginner/All-level)
Vinyasa foundations classes are a slower, more in-depth approach to the physical practice of yoga. We teach foundational yoga postures, slow flow vinyasa sequences, and a gentle breath-to-movement experience that works for beginners, and power yoga fans.
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 flow, power vinyasa, or Ashtanga yoga. In most yoga classes, students experience yin postures prior to the final resting pose (savasana), allowing the fascia and connective tissues around the joints and muscles to strengthen. These slower postures encourage flexibility and range of motion. Yin yoga is accessible to all levels, all ages, and all abilities.
