Restorative

Explore the benefits of stillness, space and relaxation with Restorative yoga. This practice uses both gentle movement and traditional long-held supported postures to help relax and unite mind and body. Great for people who are new to yoga, those recovering from certain injuries or trauma, and those who need to de-stress from work or restore from a more vigorous yoga practice. Each class ends with a meditative guided relaxation called yoga nidra which can bring the healing effects of deep sleep to the mind as well as body restoring your whole being. Zen room.

Yin Yoga

Deep Stretch Yin Yoga is great for anyone looking to improve flexibility, stretch their muscles back out from a more vigorous practice, and anyone looking to begin exploring meditation. In this class floor poses are held for extended periods of time with the muscles relaxed to allow gravity time to work on the muscles, connective tissue, joints, and even the bones. This practice can actually be therapeutic for certain kinds of joint-pain as the long gentle holds can allow the joints to be worked in a safe and therapeutic manner that is simply impossible in a more active class.Because of the nature of the long holds it is a great time for inner-reflection and meditation as well as developing a deeper awareness of both the body and the breath. The poses themselves also begin to cultivate flexibility in the very same areas that one would need flexibility in to be able to hold an upright meditation posture for an extended period of time. Unlike restorative yoga where the body is supported by props and the focus is on relaxation, in yin yoga the body is allowed to be pulled by gravity into the pose so that there are certain ‘stresses’ placed on different tissues of the body resulting a therapeutic effect. It is the TIME that the poses are held that gives yin yoga its power and which also makes it challenging. With care and consideration almost anyone can derive benefit from a yin practice, however as with any asana practice special care must be taken to cultivate the right attitude and approach to this unique practice for your individual body. This class ends with Yoga Nidra, which is a deep relaxation. It is a method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Lying in Shavasana one may appear to be asleep but the consciousness functions at a deeper level of awareness by following the Instructor’s voice. Lotus room.

Hot (Level 2)

Hot Vinyasa is a strong flowing practice for students who have conditioned their bodies by practicing Bikram and Hot Core Power in order to prepare them for this next level of practice. Students will move with the breath, lengthening the spine while building strength and flexibility. Conscious ujjayi breath will set the rhythm of this Vinyasa class as you flow from pose to pose. Due to the flowing action of the practice, the room temperature is set around 90 – 95 degrees. As you flow through the poses you generate more heat and this is why we start the class off at a lower temperature. Previous Bikram, Hot Core Power or some other flowing yoga class experience is recommended prior to taking this class. Ability to perform chaturanga with good alignment, and/or the willingness to modify this action for safety, is encouraged. Hot room.
Level 2.

Hot (Level 2/3)

A vigorous sequence designed for those who have taken our Hot Vinyasa class for months or who have practiced Ashtanga consistently. It is most important that your body is conditioned, you understand the importance of good alignment and you are comfortable with inversions. This class is not designed with beginners in mind, so, if you are new to yoga, please choose a class that is more appropriate for your abilities. If you have any doubts, please consult with our teachers.
