All of our classes are taught following an intelligent sequencing model and infused with time-honored yoga philosophy. This established teaching methodology not only ensures the physical body is prepared to safely move and transition through a thoughtfully planned asana (physical) practice, but it enriches all our students with a holistic yoga experience of movement and meditation. All students in our studio are encouraged to practice at their own pace and modifications and variations are always offered, which makes each class a unique opportunity for beginners and longtime practitioners to practice as a community.

Our teachers are comfortable teaching to multiple levels of practitioners and are experts at offering safe, knowledgeable, and consistent instruction to both beginners and longtime practitioners. This flowing breath-centered practice is a well-rounded and energetic holistic yoga experience consisting of meditation, breathwork, and asanas (seated, standing, and reclined physical postures) designed to benefit all levels of students. Optional opportunities may be offered to explore deeper expressions and more challenging variations of the physical postures to build strength and stability, improve balance, and connect to the breath.

    Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. The yin aspect of the practice focuses on the stillness, the unmoving and unseen, the less flexible and more taut connective tissues in the body.  A passive and contemplative practice, Yin Yoga involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes. With a focus on stillness, yin influences the subtle energy in the body and targets mostly the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine. Longer holds work to unwind and release the deeper, less flexible, and taut connective tissues surrounding layers of muscle, making it an effective complement to a more dynamic Yang practice.

    Yoga Nidra, also known as “Yoga Sleep,” brings the body into a space of deep relaxation.  You will begin with very gentle and floor-based movements to prepare the body for meditation and then ease effortlessly into your Yoga Nidra experience, a luxurious full-body guided meditation and a sublime journey into the subconscious.  Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.  Wear your most comfortable clothes for this perfect opportunity to nourish your body, calm your mind, and reconnect with your spirit.

    Restorative yoga is a relaxing, soothing, and healing yoga experience. This very gentle yoga practice will encourage your entire body to melt into a state of deep relaxation through the use of longer-held passive postures which are fully supported by blankets, bolsters, straps, sand bags, and blocks. The aim of restorative yoga is to promote rest and ease, removing as much sensation as possible by supporting the body in such a way that there is no tension or muscle energy. The more subtle nature of this type of practice fosters a greater sense of harmony and balance physically, energetically, and mentally. The entire class takes place on the floor and is an ideal class for someone who may be recovering from illness or have injuries that need an even higher level of mindfulness and extra gentle movement.

We have a vast collection of extraordinary instruments which, when married together, create a symphony of mesmerizing and healing harmonics.  Our sound meditations are more than just an experience of simply listening to beautiful sounds; they are a multifaceted sensory journey designed to induce deep relaxation by flooding the body and mind with layers upon layers of soothing vibrations and sound.
