Class Descriptions

For the Gentle & Relaxed Yogi:


Restorative: *

Restorative yoga is practice designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. We use many props to support the postures, while gently stretching, strengthening and relaxing the body. This class is appropriate for students of all levels.


Vin-Yin/Yin-Yang: *

This class is designed to offer a mix of both worlds balancing yang through a dynamic, heart pumping Vinyasa series linking both breath with movement and yin - a slow, easy, deep practice that stretches our connective tissue. Explore and experience the beneficial effects of both styles for a whole body experience leaving you feeling relaxed yet happily stimulated.


Honey Flow:  *

Honey Flow is the the perfect combination of Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga. The Vinyasa portion will focus on integrating breath with movements, flowing into postures. In the Yin portion the class will focus on away from your muscles, bringing the attention to the connective soft-tissues fibers in the body, focusing on flexibility while we hold pose for a few minuets at a time. Completing the Honey circle, we end off with a Restorative practice. Feeling fully relaxed and supported with all the props, releasing any active energy in the body. A perfect way to end the beginning of your week for all yogis from beginners to seasoned!

Barre Fusion: ***

A fusion of yoga and the Total Barre basics workout, Barre fusion will help you to sculpt  a more sleek and lean physique!

At the end of the Barre practice we stretch out our overworked muscles with a few yoga postures.

For the Universal Yogi:


Vinyasa Yoga I/II: **/****

Vinyasa. \'vin-yaw-saw'\ meaning = Flow (referring to movement).

In this class we will explore movement with breath as its accompaniment, as we flow from posture to posture. We will get to know our body through challenging it in either a gentle to intermediate or advanced flowing sequence (depending on the level of the class you attend).


Yoga Foundations: *

Every student has the opportunity to explore their practice as a beginner on the mat. This class offers the new yogi to the experienced one an opportunity to explore the key elements of alignment, the structure of a posture and the breath to establish a practice that is balanced and with a deep level of body awareness. Recommended for all yogis from New to Pro!


Ashtanga Practice: **

Ashtanga. \'ash-tang-gaw'\ meaning = eight-limbed.

Ashtanga Yoga is a system of yoga with a set sequence of postures. It is based around the concept of Vinyasa/ or breath-synchronized movement. Meaning that transitions between postures are given as much focus as the postures themselves. The result is a dynamic and rigorous practice that gives you the opportunity to build and improve your practice each time you are on the mat!
