A more intense and energetic Vinyasa flow, Power is designed to make you sweat as the postures move at a faster pace.

This class offers an intermediate to advanced level of practice.
All Levels Yoga
An intermediate, yet open-level practice for students looking to advance their current yoga practice, or those looking to explore the classic vinyasa style of sequencing. Emphasis will be on breath-synchronized movement; combining intelligent pose sequencing, intention-setting, fluid movement, centering, and integration. The fluid transitions from one pose to another gives you an added cardiovascular benefit.
Strengthen & Surrender Yoga

Come to class ready to explore your edges, 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.
Prana (or Chi,) is the source of physical, mental and spiritual energy. Prana flows through the energy channels of our body, and Hindu philosophy believes that our state of mind is directly linked to the amount of Prana within us.
Prana Yoga is a sacred practice of using asanas to open up the channels for prana to flow through them more freely, resulting in boosted immune system, improved digestion and sleep, improved respiratory system, more energy and vitality, & increased focus and joyfulness. All levels welcome, a true beginner's class.
