Vinyasa Flow - A dynamic practice that links movement to breath. This style of yoga gives us structure but also freedom to flow and move through different sequences and postures. We flow through sun salutations, standing series, and grounding hip openers to prepare the mind and body for shavasana. Each class is unique and can be modified to fit your practice.
Yin Yoga - This style of yoga is very healing and meditative. The postures are primarily seated or lying down, sometimes with support, and held for longer periods of time, about 1-15 minutes. The longer holds allow us to work connective tissues in the body as well balance the nervous system. By strengthening and lengthening connective tissues we are create greater range of motion in the joints, increase overall flexibilty and build stronger bones and a healthy spine. This practice teaches us to be present, patient, calm and introspective. With longer holds we have the opportunity to practice breathing techniques and tap into the subtle body, exploring prana, past and current emotions, thoughts and intentions. Many postures provide deep release for the hips and spine. This practice allows us to find balance with a very active, busy or at times, stressful, lifestyle. We create space and freedom in the physical body and more clarity in the mind.
Candlelight Slow Flow - This class is a great way to end your day! Join us for a slower paced Hatha style class by candlelight. This will be a grounding flow followed by restorative postures to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Expect to move with awareness of alignment and breath and find proper engagement in the postures. When we link our movement to breath we are able to create a moving meditation. All levels encouraged.
Foundations of Yoga - This class is designed for anyone who want to learn the basics of yoga asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques). Great for those who are completely new to yoga or those who have an existing practice but prefer a relaxed pace with detailed cueing. Sam breaks down postures, and offers specific alignment and engagement cues. Common postures offered in classes are broken down in a fun and accessible way, giving us more confidence to practice at home or take different styles of classes. This class is appropriate for all levels of ability.
Hatha Yoga - This is a very balancing asana and pranayama practice. Traditional Hatha postures, sequencing and breathing techniques are taught. We move through the asana slowly with awareness of breath, engagement and alignment. This class balances the stronger aspects of the practice with the softer more relaxing side. You can expect some slow, strong movement and vinyasasa, with more grounding, calming and meditative practices.
Therapeutic Yoga - This class is a more gentle style of yoga. It is a great way to start the day, especially if your work is demanding on the body. Whether you work at a desk, are physically active, a full time parent or just live your life-- your body forms patterns and repetitive movement and experiences tension and discomfort. In our yoga practice we work to refine our posture and movement so we move, work and play in a healthy way. Sometimes we need to work to reverse poor posture or repetitive strain that we cause daily. Jintina is a certified Massage Therapist, who specializes in Thai Massage and cupping. Using her deep knowledge of the body and pain relief, she guides students through a restful and rejuvenation practice with the aim of relieving pain and discomfort in the body. Class includes focused postures on specific parts to release tension: think neck, shoulder and wrist releases, hip and chest openers, calming forward folds and a relaxing shavasana to charge you for you day ahead and your weekend. This class is a combination of gentle movement, breathing, and longer held restorative postures.
Complete Practice - Join us for a 2.5 hour complete yoga practice. Class begins w/ centering, grounding and intention setting. As we move through a Hatha flow, we pay careful attention to our engagement, alignment and breath. Postures are held for longer and the class is structured with a building affect, each posture preparing us for something a little bit deeper or more challenging in the practice. Students are encouraged to use their own discernment whether they stay with the foundational variation of a posture or decide that they are ready to push past their comfort zone and challenge themselves by trying advanced asana postures. We will practice a strong standing series, w/ twists, single leg balancing, arm balancing, backbending and inversions. During the flow we build heat, strength and stabilty before winding down the practice with longer held restorative postures to release stored tension and prepare for pranayama and meditation. After a long shavasana, we join together for guided pranayama. Those of us who practice regularly know that an hour can go by so quickly, when we take the time and care to prepare our body and mind w/ this longer style class we are able to go deeper in our pranayama and meditation practice.
Some experience preferred but modifications are offered for those new to the practice. Can be physically and mentally challenging for some, but all levels are encouraged, especially those who wish to deepen their practice, not only of the physical body, but of the more subtle aspects of the breath and mind.

Yoga Nidra - Yoga Nidra, meaning "yogic sleep", is a powerful technique which teaches us to relax consciously. We are able to reach a deeper level of relaxation by turning inwards, away from outer experiences. All that is required of participants is that they find a comfortable position (either on the floor with props, or seated) and that they try to remain awake and aware while listening to the "guide" who is speaking. This practice is accessible for everyone, and has many beneifts.
Some benefits of Yoga Nidra include reduced physical, mental and emotional stress. It can lead to more restful sleep and help manage psychological and psychosomatic disorders. It can even improve memory, increase learning capacity, lower blood pressure and balance the nervous system. Yoga Nidra is truly a powerful, transformative mental practice that improves a person's overall health and wellbeing.
