Yoga for mind-body connection
Each Instructor brings their own authentic voice to this class. Every class will begin with grounding practices and the exploration of pranayama (the yogic practice of focusing on your breath) by using various breathing techniques. You will intentionally transition into a vinyasa/yang (sequenced/warming) yoga class where breath and posture connect and move you fluidly through a sequence of asanas (physical poses). Be prepared to move your body, and focus on your breathing.

Yoga for Grounding + Sound Healing
Hatha / Slow Flow
Every class will begin with grounding practices and the exploration of pranayama (the yogic practice of focusing on your breath) by using various breathing techniques. You will intentionally transition into a hatha (warm & cool) yoga class where you move slowly and deliberately through asanas that may challenge your strength and flexibility while simultaneously focusing on relaxation and mindfulness. Postures are maintained for multiple rounds of breath and transitions are controlled.

Yoga for restful sleep
Yin / Nidra
Prepare for sleep by exploring yin yoga asanas (cooling poses) that will calm and balance your mind and body; Then transition into a yoga nidra practice. Nidra is the state of consciousness between sleeping and waking induced by guided meditation and is a form of pratayahara (sensory withdrawal). This practice connects us with the autonomic nervous system to access the delta state of relaxation, which helps to improve thought patterns, reduce stress, and can help with chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder.

A slow paced, low intensity class focused on restorative (releasing) and yin (cooling) poses. Stretch and release in this class set in a candlelit studio. This practice helps to release the fascia, ligaments and tendons while balancing your body’s organs and boosting your immune system. The practice of holding asana (poses) will help you to sit with and observe uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations as they arise helping us to engage in svadhyaya (self study)
