All Levels Vinyasa (Non-Heated)
Vinyasa or often referred to as flow yoga is unique in the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. Each movement is linked to either an inhale or an exhale. This class is great for all levels.
This is a calming, stress relieving yoga class designed to stretch and strengthen the body gradually. The emphasis is on building awareness of the breath in connection with the body and incorporating meditation. The asanas (poses) are practiced at a slower pace with attention to detail and alignment. This class is recommended for all levels looking for a soothing, relaxing experience. It is also well suited for those newer to yoga or those working with special concerns or injuries. If you want a gentle way to learn more about yoga, this class is for you.
Intro to Yoga
This class is for beginners or students who want to improve their yoga practice. Concentration on proper execution of asanas, alignment, transitions and breath work will start to transform you from the inside out.
