CORE STRENGTH & LENGTH
Build core strength with focus on all the abdominal muscles, hips, glutes and back. We will incorporate stretching to relieve muscular tension, improve joint range of motion, reduce muscle soreness and maintain normal functional muscular strength.
This is a slower-paced class to stretch out tight muscles and loosen up stiff joints. This class focuses on stress release, flexibility, strength building, breath work, and relaxation. Class ends with a meditation. Perfect for beginner to experienced students.
MORNING CORE AND FLOW
This wake-you-up class combines the core strengthening aspects of mat Pilates with the fluid movements and centering techniques of yoga. Expect to work the deep core with planks and strengthen the legs with lunges plus many more challenging moves. You will improve cardiovascular capacity as well as have the time to focus on flexibility and centering for your day ahead.
Learn or review the basic postures of the Vinyasa practice. This class includes lots of demonstration and modifications. Great for beginners testing out the practice or those getting back into their practice after time away.
MINDFUL MOVEMENT (SENIOR YOGA)
An all-levels yoga class designed for those want to stay active but may have injuries, mobility or joint issues, or other limitations. Perfect for seniors or those in recovery. Expect a lot of personal attention and customization. The class is designed around 4-week installments, so weekly attendance is highly recommended to see improvement.
This is our regular flow class – a working knowledge of common postures and sequences is helpful. Expect to move in sync with your breath and build heat in the body. Cues for modification and amplification of postures and sequences will be offered.
SLOW FLOW VINYASA
This flow class is paced slower than our Vinyasa All Levels classes, so that students can move with an increased awareness of their body in space and take time to breathe. The instructor offers modified versions of poses and cues for alignment to practice safely.
This class uses props such as bolsters, blankets, and blocks to support the body and allow for complete muscle relaxation through passive gentle stretches. It's about letting go of life's stressors and refreshing the body systems. Restorative Yoga calms and clears the mind. All levels welcome.
During Yin, we will focus on seated, supine and prone postures held for 3-5 minutes, allowing the muscles time to relax and release so the connective tissue can be worked. Yin is a great balance to more rigorous classes and can improve joint health over time. We suggest consulting with your healthcare provider if you are recovering from recent injuries or surgery or are pregnant.
RUN AND YOGA CLUB-(offered seasonally)
Join us on Wednesday evenings for a 30 minute run or walk around beautiful Old Town. The second half of class you will enjoy a 30 minute post-run stretch and yoga class. The Run and Yoga Club meets for 6 week intervals so watch online and in the announcements for the lastest schedule.

STRETCH & REFRESH
This class focuses on removing tightness in the body caused by our modern lifestyle. With the support of props and the wall, we do both active and restorative stretches to help lengthen leg muscles, open the chest, shoulders, and hips. A great class for runners, people who work at a desk, or those looking to feel refreshed.
