There are lots of different yoga styles to explore and we are happy to share quite a few at our studio. You can learn more about what we offer in this guide, but the best way to get to know a yoga style is just to drop by for a visit.
Hatha classes tend more to the gentle side, with students transitioning from one pose to another at an easy pace. You will focus on becoming aware of your breathing and getting an understanding of yoga essentials. A Hatha yoga session will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
The Iyengar school of yoga focuses on proper alignment and a deep understanding of yoga poses. Props are used to help students achieve the correct postures and to get maximum benefit from a pose.
Share yoga with a friend, your partner….or someone you’ve just met! Join for a partner yoga class on Sunday morning. You’ll support each other in yoga poses which are designed to be accessible even if you’ve never done yoga before.
You can come as a pair or just show up on your own and be assigned a partner from the group. The class is donation-based, so you pay only what you can afford. This class takes place once a month so check our schedule for the next session.
Power yoga is a very energetic style of yoga based on Vinyasa flow. You will get a strong workout, build muscle, and work on your core. The class includes time for deep stretching so that you increase flexibility as well as strength.
The essence of Vinyasa is flow: movement connected to breath. Each movement you take in a Vinyasa sequence is accompanied by an inhale or an exhale. As you become more conscious of your breathing, your body and mind start to connect and you experience a greater sense of being present and of existing in the moment. Vinyasa focuses on creating internal heat and energy and can be a very vigorous style, building strength and toning muscle.
Yin yoga is a supported style of yoga: all the poses are done on the floor, often with the help of props. You may use bolsters, cushions, blocks and straps to help you get into and sustain a pose. Yin yoga is passive, cool and meditative. Focus is on building flexibility through stretching connective tissue.
Yoga nidra is a state of deep relaxation, also known as yogic sleep. The teacher will take you through a guided meditation, designed to bring you between waking and sleeping. Yoga nidra can help you reduce the stress of daily life and increase your connection with your inner world.
