Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic form of yoga that bridges specific yoga postures (asana) by directing breath with movement. Often termed “flow yoga” Vinyasa yoga increases endurance, strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance through guided breath and movement. Basic understanding of yoga postures and their execution is recommended. Please attend the Vinyasa Yoga class that is most appropriate to your level and abilities.
If you are brand new to yoga, we recommend starting with our Yoga 101 or Hatha style yoga classes.
Vinyasa Level 1-2: Our Intermediate Vinyasa Yoga class introduces more intense variations of yoga poses by preparing the body with dynamic Vinyasa conditioning sequences. Strength, stamina, and flexibility are challenged in this rigorous practice. Intermediate to advanced postures (arm balances and inversions) are routinely practiced to encourage students to explore their potential. (75 minutes)
Peak Pose & Vinyasa: This 75 minute Vinyasa class focuses on intermediate to advanced flowing sequences and postures with detailed preparation and instruction for a weekly "peak pose." This class routinely incorporates arm balances, inversions, and binds to challenge both body and mind.
It is important that you attend the class level that is suitable for your capabilities. This class is most appropriate for students with 1 year or more of experience in Vinyasa Yoga who are comfortable and well-practiced with poses such as crow, side crow, eka pada kundinyasana, urdhva dhanurasana, and inversions such as headstand and handstand. (75 minutes)
All Levels Vinyasa Flow Yoga: Our All Levels Vinyasa Flow class is a vigorous 60 to 90 minutes of continuous movement. Each student is encouraged to practice yoga with the “be where you are” mindset (including resting, as needed!). Intermediate to advanced modifications are routinely offered for experienced practitioners.
Previous yoga experience is highly recommended (recommended yoga experience: 3+ months). All Levels Vinyasa Flow is designed for students who are already familiar with proper pose alignment and transitions in Vinyasa style yoga. If you are brand new to yoga, we recommend starting with our Yoga 101 or Hatha style yoga classes. (60 - 90 minutes)

Gentle Yoga classes are perfect for students looking for a low-intensity practice with less vigorous movement. Gentle classes are beginner-friendly and appropriate for all practitioners.
Gentle Yoga: Gentle Yoga offers fundamental seated and standing yoga postures, breathing techniques, gentle movement, and stretching to ease into stronger, more stable, and more flexible yoga practice. Perfect for any student looking for gentle stretching and mindful movement, this class is most appropriate for those seeking low-intensity yoga with a combination of stabilizing poses and flowing movement. This class readily accommodates new-to-yoga students and others seeking a traditional yoga class appropriate for mid-life practice. (60 minutes)
Restorative Yoga: Our Restorative Yoga class combines gentle stretching, flowing movement, and classical restorative postures to release tension and help connect to the stillness within. Originally designed to promote sublime relaxation and restful sleep, this popular class is a great choice for students needing a private retreat from their hectic schedule. Take time, tune in, relax, and renew. (Duration varies by offering, 75-90 minutes)
Self-Care Sunday: This is a revolving-topic class designed for students needing relaxation and personal retreat.

Chair Yoga: Our Chair Yoga class is designed to improve range of motion, balance, and overall mobility through the practice of yoga. With the use of chairs and other props, we build and maintain balance, strength, flexibility, and natural motion for everyday tasks, improved health, and overall well-being.

(60 Minutes)

Our Traditional Yoga class offerings are inspired by the Yin, Hatha, Iyengar, and Ashtanga Traditions. These slower-paced classes are beginner-friendly and focus on form and alignment.
Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga uses a slow, steady stretch of connective tissue to improve range of motion and joint flexibility over time. Subtly deepening poses, lengthening the time spent in poses, and navigating the engagement and relaxation of specific muscle groups ensures a safe approach to all of yoga’s benefits. This class complements traditional vinyasa yoga practice as well as athletic pursuits such as running and cycling. (60 minutes)
Hatha Level 1: Hatha Yoga uses postures (asana) in combination with the breath to promote body awareness, proper alignment, strength, balance, and flexibility. This class integrates traditional breathing practices (pranayama), meditation techniques, and yogic philosophy to deepen one's understanding of yoga and to offer a practical approach to yoga both on and off the mat. Our Level 1 Hatha class offering is geared for beginner to advanced-beginner students who have completed our Yoga 101 (Beginner Yoga Series) class and prefer a slower-paced class with less flowing movement. (60 minutes)
All Levels Hatha Yoga (Technique): Perfect for beginning students or seasoned yogis looking to deepen and refine postures, this class focuses on proper yoga technique through the use of props to find strength, flexibility, and balance in each posture. We will begin by building a strong foundation for each posture then move into the subtleties of the pose. Alignment cues will be used to stay present and focused throughout the practice. Students experience each posture while developing their own unique body awareness. Classes take on a different focus for the day offering a variety of exploration. (60 - 75 minutes)
Lunch Hour Yoga: Why not make a lunch date with your yoga practice? This all-levels class is designed to reset your work day. This convenient 60-minute class offers centering techniques, invigorating seated and standing poses, Sun Salutations, therapeutic stretching, and relaxation for a mid-day reboot that sends you back into the world feeling refreshed and rejuvenated! Beginner friendly! (60 minutes)
Community Meditation: Beginning with techniques in breath awareness and control, this gently guided class allows body and mind to become still, conducive to more peaceful and joyful meditation. Whether you’re a long-time yogi or a new practitioner, pranayama (yoga breath work) and meditation will ground and balance your yoga practice as well as life off of the mat. Comfortably warm attire is recommended.
