Kundalini Yoga aims to open and balance the energy centers and energy channels in the body also known as chakras and meridians. Kundalini comes from the Sanskrit word Kundal, which means coil or spiral, symbolizing the uncoiling of our creative nature.

This practice provides strength and stamina not just physically but also mentally and emotionally.

Do You Need an antidote to stress?
If so, this class offering of Gentle and Restorative Yoga leading into approximately a half hour Yoga Nidra (guided meditation) is the perfect practice for you. Your teacher will offer a combination of gentle yoga and/or restorative yoga poses. In Restorative Yoga the body is fully supported by blankets and blocks providing a gentle passive stretch and an ability to completely relax. Yoga Nidra comes from the Sanskrit words Yoga meaning Union and Nidra meaning Sleep. This Yogic Sleep is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental & emotional relaxation. Typically a Yoga Nidra practice incorporates a body scan and breath awareness meditation which in itself can be powerful tools to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health. This practice offers an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions. Yoga Nidra can provide you an amazing sense of freedom without creating bodily stress. Gentle Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra are practices that anyone no matter what your current health condition, age, or fitness level can engage in and enjoy.

For students already familiar with yoga looking to be challenged with a slow flow Vinyasa style class. This class will typically start off with sun salutations which is a great way to warm up the body and ramp up the intensity of the practice . Vinyasa Yoga connects one posture to the next using the breath. In this class you will be linking or flowing into postures which is why it’s call Vinyasa FLOW. The philosophy of Vinyasa recognizes the temporary nature of things. We enter into a posture, are there for a while and then leave. This class will work on improving your strength and balance in a fun and challenging way.
Vinyasa Flow can induce a Flow State, a type of consciousness defined by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi as, “That place of being fully absorbed and highly focused,” on what we are doing. During “Flow” everything feels easy and connected, what yogis call “effortless effort.”
* For a more intermediate fitness level
The forgotten half of Yoga in the Western Hemisphere is Yin Yoga. This cooling practice counteracts our fast paced lives.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures (asanas) that are held for longer periods of time while focusing on slow stretching, breath and meditation. Yin Yoga is a great compliment to any other physical activity or sports as it keeps the body supple and the mind able to find stillness.
Yin targets deep connective tissue- tendons, ligaments. Parts of our physical body that really need to be loved. When we show love to our bodies we heal and create space for balance.”
