Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. Students will learn how to 'flow' safely from pose to pose & learn new balance & challenging poses along the way. Great for all levels, all sizes, shapes and ages!

You will gain strength and endurance as well as build the knowledge and confidence needed to develop a health yoga practice.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is a traditional style of yoga that includes the practice of yoga postures (asanas) and basic breathing exercises (pranayama) to bring greater harmony to aspects of body and mind. The word Hatha is a compound word where “ha” refers to sun/active/masculine and “tha” refers to moon/receptive/feminine energies within all of us. Students are guided with focus on structural anatomy and alignment and strive to develop balance of strength and flexibility in the body with attention on breath to help still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient science that comes from India. Here in America, it was brought to us by Yoga Bhajan, who wanted to help Americans recover from the drug use of the sixties and live radiant, spiritual lives. Kundalini Yoga is called the householder’s yoga because it has very effective kriyas and exercises that rapidly produce results. It is the perfect yoga for busy people who are balancing work and family and home. Kundalini yoga uses some very ancient and scientifically proven methods to increase health, awareness and radiance. These techniques encompass the whole Eightfold Path of Yoga and include the use of Yoga asanas (postures), Kriyas, Pranayama (breathing techniques), Mantra, Bandhas (Body Locks), Meditation and at the end use Gong Therapy with Deep Relaxation. Our Kundalini classes are taught by Laura Shakti, who studied under Yogi Bhajan in Los Angeles for 15 years.

This practice was also designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by stretching connective tissue around the joints.

Chair Yoga

This gentle form of exercise uses a chair to support sitting and standing yoga poses for stability and balance. As with traditional classes, there is a warmup period consisting of gentle moves and light stretches. This is a great way stretch all areas of the body while sitting in & standing next to a chair. This is a safe way to stretch, become more flexible and stronger for those who sit long hours during the day or have physical limitations. Chair yoga can be practiced in the gentle yoga classes and the beginner yoga classes.

S.O.A.R. Yoga (Success Over Addiction and Relapse)

Kyczy Hawk, Author of Yoga & the 12 Step Path, developed this yoga program to help people in 12 step programs who are working to recover from all types of addictions. It’s a very gentle, Trauma Sensitive, yoga with breathing techniques to help heal the body, mind and soul. Yoga does not take the place of counseling, in-patient or out-patient programs or 12 step programs but works with them and can enhance recovery. S.O.A.R. Yoga classes are offered in 90 minute workshops. Watch our event page schedule on the web site for dates and the times.

Meditation

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging in a meditation practice you can learn the patterns and habits of your mind. With practice you are offered a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life. In our meditation classes we also teach ways to help focus by using breathing techniques, chanting, mantras and mala beads.

Guided Meditation

is a process by which one or more participants meditate in response to the guidance provided by a trained practitioner or teacher. You are first guided to relax your body and mind, to help you reach a deep meditative state before going on a journey, in your mind, to reach a specific goal. As the brain does not distinguish between an imagined event and a real one, the experience you have with a guided meditation is just like having a real experience. This has an amazing effect on your life due to the way the brain works.
