CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Bhakti Flow

Bhakti means devotion to something higher than just ourselves. Whether it be toward a relationship, a family, a community, future generations or all beings, bhakti is the development of compassion, love, gratitude and equanimity. Flow or Vinyasa means to move skillfully. Whether it be from one posture to the next in a flowing sequence or mentally from suffering toward liberation, vinyasa is starting exactly as we are and moving toward achieving our goals, one breath at a time.

This challenging yet creative and uplifting yoga class is guaranteed to make you sweat and open your heart.  Combine a sweet powerful soundtrack, a fluid mindful flow, and a moving meditation, and you’ve got a class that is perfect for those who want to take their yoga beyond physical limitation and into the realm of divine inspiration.

Flow & Yin

Classes begin with a sequence of poses linked in movement while honoring the breath. The first half of class incorporates this movement and shorter holds in the postures to balance strength in the body. The second half of the class is based in Yin Yoga. During this portion of the class, most of the time is spent on the floor in long held stretches to allow you to unravel deeply, with a focus in the hips, legs, and low back.

Gentle Restorative & Yin

Yin Yoga targets the deep, dense, rarely touched connective tissues- the tendons, ligaments and cartilage. This type of practice complements the more muscular styles of yoga. Yin postures are held with little to no muscular effort for 2 to 5 minutes each. Since Yin Yoga postures gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, it is the perfect compliment to Yang activity (vigorous yoga, running, weight training, etc.)
