The Flow Yoga class is open to everyone, regardless of practicing experience. Although if you are not familiar with yoga at all, we do reccommend you taking a Slow Flow, Taoist, or Yin Yoga class first. Basic postures will make up the flow in this class, with advanced variations being offered for our more seasoned yogis. All-Levels classes will include a short meditation to focus the mind, followed by a flow sequence to strengthen and relieve tension in the body, and will close with a savasana, deep relaxation of the body and mind.
This class is a mindful movement class, appropriate for anyone to attend. Gentle enough for beginners, with the element of mindfulness, it can be found helpful and enjoyable for any yogi :)
Slow Flow will take you through a vinyasa flow slowly and gently.  This class is suitable for any fitness level.  Enjoy!
This harmonious flow class begins with meditation, chanting, and gentle hand mudras to focus the mind. The flow of postures draws from the teachings of Mark Whitwell and TKV Desikachar (known for seamlessly combining breathwork, bandha, and posture) and Dharma Mittra (famous for teaching heart opening backbends and inversions.) The postures are guided in a slow manner giving new students time to work on postures and advanced students opportunities to try more challenging holds or variations. New students are encouraged not to try any inversions without the teachers help. People learn inversions by observation then practice of preparatory techniques and over time are able to practice them in the flow of class. Class ends with a ten minute shavasana and sanskrit chanting to live guitar or harmonium. Prepare yourself for bliss and lots of positive philosophical messages. Om. 
This practice combines Qi Gong movements with simple stretching, circulating blood throughout the whole body, opening the joints, and centering one's mind. Taoist Yoga is a low impact practice fit for all levels of experience, beginners welcome. Taoist Yoga emphasizes heightened awareness of one's own internal energy and facilitates health, happiness, and inner peace.
Get ready to heat up to some cool beats in this exhilarating vinyasa class! This class welcomes yogis of all levels, but be prepared to sweat off tension with a smile as you develop strength and flexibility flowing to high energy tunes. Bring an open mind and an open heart and get ready to shake your asana!
Yin is the feminine, dark, passive, receptive, reflective, withdrawn, cool, introspective aspects of life. Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility while invigorating the energy centers of the body (nadis) to release blockages and increase your energy flow. The primary differences between Yin Yoga and many other forms of yoga is that you are encouraged to NOT use your muscles and passive poses are held for several minutes allowing the body to move beyond the initial 30 seconds it takes the muscle to relax and stretching to occur. Static stretching is excellent to increase range of motion. Therefore if you are tight due to repetitive movement from other sport activities or your day job keeps you in the same position 8 hours a day or your body has aged – Yin yoga will help stretch it out. Yin Yoga is also great for reducing stress in the body and mind. Holding poses without distraction for several minutes teaches us to relax. We begin to release tension that is deeply engrained in our muscles.
