YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
SLOW FLOW VINYASA
A calm stress-relieving class that stretches and strengthens the body gradually. Focusing on awareness of the breath and the body. Asana is practiced at a slower pace with attention to alignment and detail. Perfect for every level and those with special concerns or injuries.
In this class we never leave the floor...or the wall. It includes deep flexibility, sometimes with props, and asanas (postures) that will help the body completely relax and let go. Yin/Restorative postures are done more slowly and held for slightly longer periods of time than in a more "yang" or dynamic, practice. These longer holds, or stretches, help to release and lengthen the connective tissue more deeply and therefore are a great compliment to everything else we do. So whether your goal is to increase mobility, sleep more deeply, or leap tall buildings in a single bound, this class is for you!!
STRONG FLOW VINYASA
A dynamic flow class focusing on breathe and movement. Sequences may move quickly, or be held longer generating heat within the body. Expect challenging Asanas, including some inversions, challenging flexibility, and of course Shavasana.

This class is a sequence of postures from the Ashtanga primary series: taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of India. The intention is for students to learn a sequence of postures so they can focus on how their breath flows through each posture. Ashtanga yoga focuses on the Tristana method of breath, posture and gaze. This meditative practice offers students an opportunity to gain spiritual and physiological benefits. The pace is faster but can be modified for all levels of practice.
