Mondays at 9:30am: Hatha Fusion
Hatha Fusion combines traditional Sun Salutation with a splash of Vinyasa flow, deep stretching, breath work, and meditation. Centering in our hearts and breath with each movement we will bring more vitality, strength, and flexibility to the body, mind, and spirit. All levels welcome, we will dive in together and open up, and move thru a mixture of invigorating, strengthening, and relaxing flow series, combined with deeper slower stretching and balance postures, with ample time for the sweetness of Savasana and meditation. Light up your heart and your Monday morning with Hatha Fusion.
Mondays at 12:30pm: Sivananda Yoga (All Levels)
Sivananda Yoga is a traditional hatha yoga style passed down from the Sivananda lineage. It is designed with the intention of opening and activating the energy centers in the body by holding asanas or poses for longer periods of time in a specific sequence. This class strengthens & tonifies the body, mind & spirit by connecting mindful movement with the breath.
Mondays at 4:00: Vigorous Meditative Flow (All Levels)
Inspired by Its Yoga's "The Rocket", the first power yoga, developed by Larry Shultz, the first Westerner to live with Ashtanga Vinyasa founder K. Pattabhi Jois. The style was formulated as a personal training practice for the Grateful Dead, a practice designed to "get you there faster". We drop in deeper in the beginning, go just as hard, and maybe have a few extra jokes and spiritual tidbits.
Its all about focus, controlling your energy, entering a space of constant graceful mastery, while working hard enough to sweat doing over 50 poses plus Ashtanga Vinyasa Sun Salutations. The meditation and Savasana at the end are hard to beat from this work. Come step up your game!
Mondays at 6:00pm: Restorative Yoga (All Levels)
Restorative yoga is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. Bolsters and blankets will be used to support your body allowing you to melt into various relaxing rejuvenating restorative poses. Each pose will be held anywhere from 3 to 15 minutes. Relaxing music, gentle instructions and a comfortable environment will provide you the opportunity to melt away layers of stress and guide you into deep meditative state. Everyone is welcome. Please come. Wear comfortable clothing.

Tuesdays at 4:00pm: The Adaptive Yogi (All Levels)
The Adaptive Yogi is a Vinyoga inspired practice in which asana is performed as a gateway to increase mindfulness of breath.

This will enhance the quality of one's life. With patience, one will gracefully cultivate a feeling of lightness in their body and improve their ability to withstand change. Come learn to focus the mind, transcend dullness and agitation in readiness to sit for pranayama practice and deepen into a space of mediative stillness. These healing theraputic techniques are designed to encourage and transform YOUR personal practice.
