Mondays at 8:00pm: Breathwave

A deep dive into the healing power of your breath through Conscious Connected Breathing. This practice finds its roots through the teachings of Babaji and was pioneered in the West as "Rebirthing" by Leonard Orr and Sondra Ray. There are many different systems of Breathwork that exist (Breathwave, Transformational Breath, Holotropic, etc.) all sharing one common thread of connecting the breath without a pause. The benefits of Breathwork extend far beyond the physical into the mental and emotional fields. Each person’s breath pattern is completely unique to their own life experience and can be seen as a metaphor for how they live their lives.This is a powerful modality that allows the breath to flow more openly within the body creating space where there once was constriction in the many layers of our experience.


Tuesdays at 6:30am: Rise & Shine Kundalini Yoga & Meditation (all levels)

Kundalini yoga is a mix of movement, meditation, mantra and mudra with a focus on our breath. In Kundalini yoga a kriya is a series of postures, breath, and sound that work toward a specific outcome. In this morning class we will practice a kriya, move into deep relaxation, then meditate. This is an opportunity to practice while the world immediately outside is still mostly quiet. A potent time to gather and move our energy. Rise early and shine with the radiance cultivated in this transformational practice. All levels of experience welcome.


Tuesdays at 9:30am: Shakti Flow

Shakti Flow is fueled to ignite the fire (Shakti kundalini) within. A focus on proper alignment of poses (asanas) for all levels of body awareness. A weaving of vinyasas to empower and discover your own unique and creative path of self discovery, self love and self authenticity. Creatively combing meditation (dhyana) and breathwork (pranayama) to bring mindful remembering of who you truly are, in the Light and in the Shadows, embracing yourself to the fullest in every aspect of your practice and your Earth journey. Saying YES to Life. I humbly offer All That I Am, to witness and support your intentiins to offer the I Am of YOU to the All That Is. Wholeness Vibrations, Shakti Rose

Known as the food of the Gods by the Mayans, it connects us to our intuition and higher knowing.

We will devote ourselves to sacred time for soul nourishment which can include intention setting, calling in the directions, sharing circles, connection exercises, discussion topics, ritual, singing, movement, sound healing, breathwork and more.

Thursdays at 9:30am: Yoga Tune-up (All Levels)

Yoga Tune Up® is a fitness therapy format built around the three P's – Pain, Posture and Performance. It helps eradicate pain, improve posture and enhance performance through a unique blend of yoga, Corrective Exercise, Self-Massage, and Breath Strategies. By helping to identify and target your "body blind spots"; areas that are most overused, underused, or misused, YTU heals damaged muscle, increases strength and establishes healthy movement patterns.

The YTU format includes dynamic and static range of motion exercises to target these blind spots to improve proprioception (body sense), interoception (physiological listening) and motor control (performance). This format utilizes unique exercises that educate each practitioner about their body biomechanics and their personal relationship to how they use their body on a daily basis. Mindset work surrounds and infuses each YTU lesson so that subtle and gross awareness evolve to help every practitioner live better in their body.


Thursdays at 4:00pm: Inquiry & Presence Practice

In this class we will use the breath and a simple form of using questions (inquiry) to look more deeply at how we meet the present moment. Our life is made up of these moments stringed together. As we bring presence to this process we can start to explore how to meet this moment in a beautiful way.


Thursdays at 6:00pm: Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra

Practice: Physical and Emotional Healing, Meditation, Deep Relaxation

Restorative Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra is a way for the nervous system to realign back into homeostasis. Through connecting the breath with prop-supported poses Restorative give our sympathetic nervous system (the fight of flight system) a chance to feel safe and held. This relaxes and allows the parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and digest system) to bring equilibrium to the mind and body. The props are used to allow the body to fully emerge into a pose without any bodily or thought provoking strain. Yoga Nidra is often described as 'yogic sleep'. It is a guided meditation while laying down that brings the mind, body and spirit into the state between sleep and awake. In this state one can tap into their own intercellular matrix for deep healing.

Results from this practice include inner stillness, inner stability, and a renewed sense of vitality, thus, allowing the body's innate wisdom to bring harmony and presence onto our mats and into our lives.


Fridays at 9:30: Yoga, Movement & Meditation

Movement and Meditation Yoga is suitable for everyone. Whether this is your first yoga class or you have been practicing Asana for years you will benefit from this class.
