BE YOUR OWN LIGHT

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

ENERGETIC FLOW YOGA

Designed for the advanced student.  Not recommended for beginners or anyone with injuries.  Students should have a good understanding of alignment and be prepared to flow more quickly between poses, have fun and sweat!  Class may include Inversions, Sun Salutations, and creative sequencing.  Perfect for students with the desire to work their body intensely in order to clear their mind.

BUTI YOGA

Buti Yoga is a movement practice that melds dynamic yoga flow sequences, cardio-infused tribal dance, plyometrics, and deep abdominal training into a high-intensity workout.  The practice is set to an upbeat playlist of current popular songs, feeling more like play than the full-body workout that it is. This practice is excellent for increasing strength, flexibility and coordination.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

If you’re looking for a class that allows you to focus on your breath and take time sinking into each pose, restorative yoga is worth trying. A restorative practice aims to revitalize our energy by using the floor and props to support our bodies as we breathe and spend time in poses that open and release. A single class might only include a handful of poses, since each is held for some minutes. A restorative practice is good for all of us! But it can be especially suitable for folks recovering from injury, those new to yoga, and people working on stress reduction and mindful breathing.

MULTI-LEVEL FLOW YOGA

This multi-level class will focus on connecting poses fluidly, initiating movements with the breath, & building a purifying heat in the body.  Designed for the intermediate student, but fine for athletic beginners.

GENTLE YOGA

A great slow-moving, relaxing class designed for the absolute beginner, injured, or even an advanced student just looking to take it easy.  Most poses will be practiced on the ground rather than standing.  Proper mechanics, alignment and breath control will be covered.

YIN YOGA

Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga compliments the more dynamic and active (Yang) styles of yoga. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, lower spine, and pelvis. It focuses in on the ligaments, bones and even joints that normally are not exercised.  Most of the poses are done on the floor and are held passively for one to five minutes, bringing a deeply meditative quality to class, exposing deeper layers of our habitual patterns that we can then choose to release. Yin can be very powerful on our journey inward. Please note: Yin is not restorative yoga. If the tissues or spine is damaged or injured, please give yourself a chance to heal. If you are experiencing back pain due to bulging or herniated discs, this is not an appropriate class for those with an injury.

SOULFUL SUNDAY FLOW

Soulful Sunday Flow is a combination of mindful and more active flow, and meditation. We use asana as a tool to clear the mind for meditation. Sometimes, we have to work hard to clear the mind! This type of flow keeps the breath with the pose and the mind with the breath.

THERAPEUTIC YOGA

Therapeutic Yoga: Therapeutic yoga is a gentle and nourishing approach to self-healing. Learn to loosen up tight muscles and create space in areas of the body and mind. This class will include a variety of yoga postures, breathing techniques, fascial release methods and prop-based asanas that will increase one’s range of motion, mobility, and overall mind-body resilience.

YIN FOR ATHLETES

Whether you’re a climber, paddler, cyclist, or desk jockey, this yin style yoga class will free up stiff fascia and help your muscles lengthen and relax from your feet up to your neck.
