All Levels Vinyasa Flow
A vigorous, dynamic, flow-based yoga where variance and creativity are the norm. Each class differs from the last to help you find your edge. In this class, we evoke the energy of Shiva embodied as Lord of the Dance. This is the full expression of vinyasa as moving meditation.
When linking breath with movement, the practice becomes dancelike — an interplay of motion and stillness—Shiva/Shakti. Strength, flexibility, balance and cardio come into harmony. Described as “an awakening,” the only way to truly understand is to do it.
Awaken your consciousness, let go of ego, strengthen your body, and flow (and sweat) on the path on to find the self. We suggest you have a familiarity with Sun Salutations A & B.
Our class moves slowly and consciously, poses are felt and held for 5 breaths or more, and you will feel your strength and flexibility build from class to class. Your teacher will give suggestions for modifications to increase or decrease the intensity. This class focuses on building your practice on a strong foundation of breath, conscious movement, compassion for where you are right now, and proper alignment.
Core Power Flow – All Levels
Beginners Flow, Gentle Flow, All Levels, and Level II
Heated Vinyasa classes feature a heated room and teacher’s-choice creative sequencing that gets you moving, breathing and sweating through an invigorating flow that heals, detoxifies and electrifies! Inspiring music helps create the complete power flow experience that will improve flexibility, as well as sculpt, hone and tone the muscles of your body and your mind.
Heated Beginners Flow is available to all Yogis no matter what your experience level, and is especially good for beginners wanting to add some heat into their practice.
Heated Gentle Flow is an awesome All Levels class open to every level of Yogi.
All Levels classes ask our students to have a basic understanding of Sun Salutation A’s and B’s.
Level II classes require an intermediate to advanced Yoga practice.
We practice compassionate heat. We do not heat the room to Bikram levels. Our heat is from 85-90 degrees. We turn off the heat and turn on the AC/fans during the cool down part of the practice, helping your body to cool down during the resting phase of class.
Introduction to Asana
Restore&Meditate, Restorative, Candlelight Restorative
Most Yin postures (asanas) are held for 5-7 minutes, and in doing so, the body responds by making connective tissues longer, stronger and more pliable.
This practice is all about exploring your “edge”: the sweet space in between discomfort and pain. Yes, we go THERE. Your teacher will be the motivation to breathe through the intensity, to quiet the mind, and allow your body and spirit to be open to the healing properties and energy movement of this practice.
Yin Yoga is MEDICINE for your joints and connective tissues. This space provides students with the opportunity to listen deeper than ever before to the messages the body has to offer. This class is accessible to all levels, including first timers.
Heated Yoga at the Shala
The heat warms the muscles for safer stretching and increases the efficiency of our cardiovascular, nervous and digestive systems. You will sweat more. Sweat helps to detoxify the body and is good for your kidneys.
We practice COMPASSIONATE HEAT. We do not heat the room to Bikram Yoga levels.
Heat is generated from intentional breathing, movement, and setting the studio thermostat at 90ºF. We ask you to drink water before and after class. Always listen to your body. If you need to take a rest or a water break, take one. We turn the heat off and turn on the AC/Fans about 3/4 of the way through class, helping your body to cool down during the resting phase of class.
