Prop[er] Alignment Yoga

This class is co-taught by owners Carissa and Lindsay.  A prop heavy alignment-based yoga class. t's a no-flow class designed for beginners, and for experienced yogis. Using props in new ways allows us to explore postures for a different perspective, whether it's more challenging or more accessible.We teach students to intuitively align asanas properly with the generous support of props. Students will learn to honor the body's strengths and limitations, and to use props as tools to explore more fully the benefits from each shape.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa means to place in a special way.  Students are encouraged to use the breath as a guide for meditation in movement. This is a great place for yogis and beginners to play with a variety of balances, twists and inversions. Too much?  Check our SLOW VINYASA class, a much gentler approach to the same principle.  In 60 minutes, class moves through grounding breath awareness, to a series of heating asanas, time for exploration in new or challenging postures, a calming seated practice to draw awareness inward, and finishes with a well deserved rest.
