LivFreePowerUP!
A more intense and energetic Vinyasa flow, Power is designed to make you sweat as the postures move at a faster pace. Often referred to as “athletic yoga” it emphasizes building strength & endurance, and focuses more on movement rather than holding a pose.  This class offers an intermediate to advanced level of practice. (Foundations LivFreePowerUP! takes the same great practice, but slows down the pace slightly and serves as an introduction to the more advanced flow)

Sunrise Power

Vinyasa style flow of strength building asana through linking breath and movement. This class is centered around cultivating internal heat, holding pose, lengthening and stretching muscle tissue.  Within this method awaits the awakening of connection between mind and body to create mental endurance, inner strength, and a calm meditative focus within practice and off the mat. This is an intermediate to advanced level of practice.

All Levels Yoga
A moderately paced practice designed to slowly cultivate internal heat through a series of stamina building asanas.  This class is devoted to the art of setting intention, exploring personal boundaries within the practice, core strengthening, improving balance and increasing flexibility. Come to class ready to explore your edges, maybe break a small sweat (which is totally good for you! ), find your personal power and listen to your body! Practice will close with a restorative sequence allowing time to turn your attention inward. Different variations of asanas are offered making this class fun, safe and challenging for all levels.

Gentle Restorative Yoga
This class combines deep stretching and relaxation, pranayama, mudras and mantras. We begin with breath awareness and mindfulness to bring about a sense of calm and focus, followed by gentle warmups.  We then move into Yin Yoga postures - long static stretches that target the body’s joints and connective tissue to allow for greater mobility and flexibility. We finish with a deeply nourishing Restorative Practice in which the body is placed into postures that are supported with props.  A complement to any other yoga practice,  this class is also perfect for anyone who is recovering from injury or illness or who experiences stress on a regular basis. Suitable for all levels.

Gentle/Foundations Yoga
A perfect beginner's class and beautiful introduction to the practice of Yoga. Centered on gentle movement, awareness of breath, and stretching, this practice integrates posture to support the release of endorphins & to help reduce stress.  

Gentle Yoga
Practice the art of being gentle...with your body, your mind, and your spirit! Tap into your intuition and allow your body to decide how deep to take a pose, or when to move to a new breath. Utilize basic acupressure points and energy medicine techniques throughout classic Hatha poses to unlock the language of your body and amplify your healing power. Class is suitable for beginners, or experienced yogis looking to slow down their practice. 

Yoga Sculpt
Set to upbeat music, Yoga Sculpt combines strength training exercises, cardio, and power yoga sequences. Class is designed to boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass!  Get ready for a sixty minute, full body workout through the use of hand weights and body weight resistance.   This is an intermediate to advanced level of practice.


Barre

Barre- Based off of a dancer's workout, this dynamic class incorporates Pilates, dance, cardio, and strength-training to shape, tone, and work every muscle in your body. Utilizing small hand-weights, balls, resistance bands, and the ballet barre isometric movements will target muscles you didn't know you had! Enjoy upbeat music during this energizing workout and transform your body. Classes are challenging, but adaptable to all-levels. 

Sunrise at the Barre- same fantastic Barre class, just awakened with the sunlight!

Barre Fusion- A combination of yoga and barre. Class will begin with breathing techniques and gentle warm-ups, then build endurance into an invigorating series combining barre and yoga postures.  Exercises are aimed at lengthening, strengthening, toning, and increasing energy for total body fitness. Class ends with a cool down, peaceful restorative posture series, and Savasana. All-Levels.


Meditation

Meditation enhances your ability to connect with yourself and with others. It helps you become more focused, calm, and creative. Science has proved that this ancient practice has the ability to ease your body into a state of conscious rest. This rest encourages balance and harmony in body, mind, and spirit. Sitting quietly for a few moments each day invites you to experience these benefits more. 

No experience is necessary for meditation classes. Instructors will guide and support you in learning the art of 'sitting still'.

Women’s Wisdom Circle

Women's Circle.png

Coming Soon! Weekly starting January 6, 2019

Women have been gathering in circles for hundreds of thousands of years to share their struggles and their triumphs, to ask for and to give strength, and to create greater connectedness and wisdom. In today’s society, this type of connection is rare but still so needed. 

In this weekly Women’s Wisdom Circle, we will find a spaciousness within ourselves where we will give ourselves permission to slow down, to check in with our bodies and our emotions, to mute the mental chatter of to-do lists, planning, worrying. We will reconnect with our creative essence and will give it an outlet for expression. We will do this in community with other women, channeling the healing power that comes from being seen and accepted just as you are. 

Each week we will explore a theme through journaling, movement, art, and sharing. You may wish to bring a journal but paper will also be provided. Dress comfortably or come as you are. No prior experience is necessary and you may join the circle at any time. This is the beautiful thing about circles, they can expand with ease to be exactly the size they are meant to be.

Sundays at 3:00pm | $10 drop in | Class cards apply
