Yin Yoga: This is a slower paced class holding floor poses between 1-5min. We relax the muscles; aim our intention into the joints and the deep tissues wrapping them, not the more superficial tissues of the muscles or skin. A great class for those looking for serious flexibility work and for those interested in contemplation – a bridge to meditation.



Athlete’s Yoga


Athlete’s Yoga: This class focuses on stretching muscles of the legs, lower back release and chest opening to bring balance to over trained muscles. A great class for those who demand a lot from their bodies, beginners or ongoing practitioners of yoga.


Intermediate Hatha


Intermediate Hatha: In this faster paced class, you’ll find breathwork, Sun Salutations, intermediate poses, as well as guided relaxation. Some yoga experience suggested. Great for challenging your strength and flexibility.





Flow Yoga


Flow Yoga: This is  a dynamic and playful flow class that will challenge your mind and your body.  We will warm the body, focus the mind, link postures with breath while gaining flexibility and strength.





Ashtanga: Ahstanga is a set sequence of postures beginning with Sun Salutations and progressing through the Primary Series. Ashtanga develops strength, stamina and flexibility in the practitioner, using a flowing sequence of poses linked by breath. Great for those wanting physical challenge and a faster paced class.



Prenatal: Try yoga to support a more comfortable pregnancy and help empower and prepare for birth. We practice gentle stretching and strengthening movements for ease and endurance during pregnancy as well as breathing to relax and focus the mind. This class is designed especially for your beautiful pregnant body! No previous yoga experience is necessary.


Mom and Baby

Shauna Mom and baby  Mom and Baby: Rediscover your yoga practice with baby near by! We will respect the recovery that     your body needs while gently toning the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, stretching the upper back and shoulders, strengthening the lower back, helping reduce fatigue and increase relaxation and, of course, sharing time with other new moms and babies. Move your body in a way that feels good in a place where interruptions are expected and welcome.
