WHICH CLASS IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Ashtanga yoga is an eight-limbed yoga practice that encompasses more than physical postures of yoga (asana). In Ashtanga yoga, 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 and are perfect for all levels of experience. Intensity level: moderate to high.
Vinyasa Flow yoga links breath and movement through postures and sequences that build heat, improve flexibility, and get your heart and spirit racing. We flow with and without music or playlists and our classes may be heated to a reasonable temperature (no HOT yoga). Vinyasa yoga classes are all levels classes, but practitioners should understand their own limitations and utilize posture modifications as needed. Intensity level: moderate to high.
Vinyasa Foundations | Slow Flow
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. Practitioners should understand their own limitations and utilize posture modifications as needed. Intensity level: mild to high.
Restorative yoga is the softer side of a yoga practice, utilizing postures, props, and techniques to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system. This class nurtures your body and spirit, giving you the time and space to restore and renew. Intensity level: mild.
