OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our studio’s philosophy is rooted in the firm belief that everyone can do yoga. Our diverse offerings reflect that belief: we meet you where you are while helping you build the tools to grow, and encouraging you to listen to your own body’s wisdom. Most of our intermediate and advanced classes revolve around fun and mindful vinyasa flow that draws on the lineages of Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Anusara Yoga.

UPCOMING EVENTS

5:30 - 6:45 pm

Yin Yoga

Whether we rejoice or recoil from winter’s full embrace, we are in it! And in yin philosophy, this is our season. How this shows up in postures is long-held poses for low back and legs, and a settling into quiet and stillness. The aim is a balancing and bolstering of our energy reserves along with more fluidity and ease in our activities. All levels welcome. Erin offers yin yoga once a month.  Sign up to save a spot.

Kundalini Yoga, New Time

Kundalini Yoga is moving to a new time! Beginning February 2, Amanda will teach this class Saturdays, 11 am (class was previously taught Sundays, 4:30 pm).

NEW Weekly Yin Class Begins

Beginning Thursday February 7, Pam will offer a yin class noon–1. Great way to pause and refresh mid-day. Yin yoga is gentle but not easy. Students hold poses for 3-5 minutes, and props are used to invite release as we breath into the areas of tightness and tension. Yin targets the parasympathetic nervous system, and yin tissues, ie, the joints, ligaments and fascia. These tissues (and a yin practice) support the bones and muscles to enhance health and well being. All abilities are welcome and no experience is required. Sign up to reserve a space.

Heart-full Yoga: For the Heart, From the Heart


Your task is not seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

-Rumi

Hey Lovers! Join us for a fun afternoon of breaking barriers and arousing energy at the heart area, the anahata chakra. We’ll be bringing our awareness to this sacred space, while also using Kundalini Yoga movement and breath techniques to increase energy flow at the heart until you are bursting with love! Expect yoga, meditation, poetry, and chocolate!


This practice will not only elevate your mood, get your heart rate up, and make you feel more alive, but working at the heart center strengthens your immune system by stimulating the thymus gland. Give yourself some love by joining us! All levels of yoga experience are welcome to enjoy this unique style of yoga that will connect you with yourself, heart and soul.


The workshop is $25 before 2/3; $35 thereafter. Register soon!

Register

Sharon's popular Intro series returns, the second series to run in 2019, and possibly on hold thereafter until Fall, so sign up soon! The first series in January filled to capacity.

Learn the foundations of yoga, from the ground up.
Never taken a yoga class and interested in trying?  Practiced for years but wondered how you should really be doing that downward dog? And what about all that breathing anyway?  
If you can say yes to any of the above, this is the class for you.  We will explore the foundations of yoga, focusing on the physical alignment for the basic postures, and the basics of breath work and meditation that are also part of the practice.
No experience in yoga is needed, but a basic level of physical fitness is required—i.e., you are able to get up from a seated position on the floor, are reasonably comfortable on hands and knees.  If you have questions about whether this class is right for you, please get in touch.
Series registration only.
