Find the style that is right for you
Vinyasa classes utilize smoothly flowing and consist of a series of poses that will teach you to coordinate with the flow of your breath. Vinyasa movements cultivate balance, stability, flexibility, and vigor. Breath awareness and coordination are carried throughout the practice as the asana ebbs and flows between effort and ease. Because vinyasa practice puts a strong focus on sun salutations, most vinyasa classes will focus heavily on this sequence. The continuous movement of vinyasa reflects the impermanence of all forms and the necessity of accepting change to achieve balance and completeness
Align & Flow
Mobility & Foam Rolling
Let’s get moving in a meaningful way! In this movement mobility class we will focus on functional, full-body strengthening exercises (think plank, and variations), balance, tension release (ball and foam rolling), and stretching. This class builds stability and strength in a safe way, so we can continue to move with confidence and intention in our daily lives.
Iyengar yoga is a type of hatha yoga based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar, and on the eight limbs of yoga as described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. It focuses on precise body alignment, the use of props to help students of all abilities perform the asanas, and an understanding of the therapeutic potential of yoga. The asanas build strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance, and the postures are held for longer periods of time in order to cultivate control of the breath, concentration, and inward self study. Classes are characterized by their precision, with teachers giving detailed verbal instruction and actively correcting misalignments.
SLOW FLOW YOGA
Slow Flow is a mindful, slower paced yoga class that is meditative and emphasizes peace and calmness of body and mind. Poses are held for a longer period of time to teach principles of proper physical and energetic alignment. This means that you can plan on taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath. The challenge in the class comes from holding postures for a longer period of time and the simultaneous steering of consciousness to the awareness of breath and movement. Breathing and mindfulness practices are taught in simpler sequences. Slow Flow is a great place to start if you are new to flow-style yoga or anyone wanting a methodically paced class that still emphasizes the connection between breath and movement.
Therapeutic Yoga uses a methodic application of sequences to unwind fascial patterns of holding and pain in the body. Much of the work is floor-based and passive, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy! This therapeutic style of Yoga resets the nervous system, opens the joints, and releases patterns of restriction in the body, using long holds and specific alignment. This is an all-levels class, and everybody—athletes, couch potatoes, young and old, will find this practice accessible and will benefit from it.
This yoga practice was designed to serve the modern body and mind. Francisco Kaiut’s method is influenced by his professional practice as a chiropractor and his education in craniosacral and polarity therapies, deep tissue massage, and hatha yoga. The Kaiut Method works deeply with the joints, to return the body to its optimal structure and function, thereby allowing the internal systems to work as efficiently as possible for as long as possible—anti-aging yoga from the inside out. By focusing on the joints instead of stretching the muscles, practitioners can work with the cause behind the symptom. This inclusive method uses simple shapes to create a yoga format accessible to all practitioners regardless of flexibility, strength, age, or experience, and is intended to restore true freedom of movement to the body, and in turn the mind.
Original Hot YOGA
This class follows a regular series of 26 yoga poses and two breathing exercises. The poses are designed to work all areas of the body in an efficient and effective order. The room will be heated. The heat warms the muscles, invigorates the circulatory system, and improves the heart rate, and the resulting sweat releases toxins and impurities through the skin. In this one-hour class we perform each posture only once.
We start each session with a simple chime, followed by 30 minutes of silence and meditation. The silence is broken by another chime. Tea will follow, and conversation is then welcome. You are invited to bring your favorite sitting surface to this practice. This free class is a weekly community offering.
This class blends dynamic strength training or functional mobility practices with the mindful principles of yoga for increased cardiovascular fitness, physical recovery, agility, and body confidence. Featuring high intensity intervals or the use of mobility enhancing props, yoga conditioning builds stamina, increases range of motion, and improves aerobic capacity.

Breathe to Transform. The breath is an entry point into ourselves. With it we can transform our energy, our physicality, the way that we relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us. It also serves as a portal to altered states of consciousness. Join Matthew and Levitie (on varying weeks) to try out ways of using your breath to access the subconscious, tap into deeper ways of knowing, improve your energy, breathing efficiency, and to become more embodied in your daily life.
A sound bath is a full-body meditative experience where recipients lie down and listen to resonant sounds. ClaireZane’s sound baths include both crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, weighted tuning forks, and a singing crystal pyramid. Currently offered on Wednesday evenings immediately following the vinyasa class.
