~ KUNDALINI YOGA ~
Been wondering what all the BUZZ is about with Kundalini Yoga? We have a variety of wonderful instructors, who each in their beautiful unique way, will guide you with gentle, precise instruction, creating a comfortable and powerful experience of "the Yoga of Awareness" as taught by Yogi Bhajan, PHD Master of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga has been known to create happiness and long lasting transformation. Kundalini Yoga uses movement, sound current, breath and meditation to relax and heal your mind and body, allowing the spirit to flow freely. Kundalini Yoga brings a greater feeling of well-being. Suitable for all ages and levels of physical ability. Physical Exercise, Music & Mantra, Meditation and the Gong are always included in each class session.

 ~ HATHA YOGA ~
Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga. The word haṭha literally means "force" and thus alludes to a system of physical techniques. In India hatha yoga is associated in popular tradition with the 'Yogis' of the Natha Sampradaya through its mythical founder Matsyendranath. It is an active practice using principles of alignment to strengthen & help you grow more flexible and balanced... Preparing your body for a deeper yoga practice. Opening invocation and soothing music for final rest in Savasanah. In most cases, it will be relatively gentle, slow and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style where they hold poses longer. 


~ ASHTANGA LED PRIMARY ~
Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series is a precise sequence of postures, linked together with vinyasa sequences. It is used as the daily yoga practice for yogis who practice Ashtanga yoga, the sequence of yoga as was taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. The primary series is the first series students learn. As well as the postures, it includes a specific breathing technique, use of bandhas, drishti (gaze points) and coordinated movement with the breath.

This dynamic, physically demanding practice synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga yoga, with its many vinyasas, is great for building core strength and toning the body. Prepare to sweat as you briskly move through a set sequence.

This sequence is a fluid and elegant synchronization of breath and movement creating a moving meditation that will leave you feeling alive, vibrant and aware. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. Practitioners of all levels are welcome.


~ AWAKEN TO YOGA ~  
A Vinyasa Flow that brings in a blend of stillness, connection, fluid and powerful movement, while interweaving breath, rhythm, and playfulness. The yoga of energy and transformation works at a moderate pace in this Vinyasa style, linking movement to breath, building strength and flexibility. Bring in Mind, Body, and Soul balance. All levels welcome. 

~ RESTORATIVE YIN ~
This class targets the connective tissues and areas in your body where your stresses tend to accumulate. It’s a chance to unravel the knots that our experiences tie inside our bodies (physically and emotionally.) Light but deep floor postures/stretches are held for several minutes, giving them the time needed to access ligaments, tendons, and fascia to help heal and restore your body.  This class is all about stretching, meditating, breathing, connecting, and healing yourself.


~ GUIDED CHAKRA BALANCE & SOUND BATH ~

Meditation Monday is every Monday 7:30pm, and rotates throughout the month. 

The first Monday of the month is guided chakra meditation sound bath. You will be guided through each chakra, to open, clear and balance. Connecting you more to source, while staying grounded to earth. Raising your vibration, and connecting you more to your higher self and guidance. Includes crystal chakra singing bowls, bells, Tibetan singing bowls and gong bath.


~ SHAMANIC BREATH MEDITATION ~ 

On our Meditation Monday 7:30pm, second Monday of each month. 

Induce Altered States of Consciousness Through Your Breath.
From the ancient mystics to modern basics, breath/Qi/Chi/Prana - all names for the primordial energy which permeates all things and collects in higher amounts in sentient beings. By becoming consciously aware of the breath and deepening it, we are able to greatly expand states of consciousness. This shamanic breathing is sometimes called holotropic breath work, or the rebirthing breath. The effects can be revolutionary to your personal growth journey.


~ VIBRATION MEDITATION ~

On our Meditation Monday 7:30pm, the last Monday of each month. A guided meditation, often beginning with movement, and shaking off what no longer serves us to the vibration of the drum, making space to bring in higher energies, healing, and Divine light. Feeling the sound vibrations, energies surrounding you, and allowing the imagination to soar in this AMAZING sound bath of drums, handpan, bells, and rainstick. 

Lets raise our vibration!! 

 
~ CANDLELIGHT VINYASA ~
What a better way to wrap up your day... Drop into a soothing evening flow to candlelight. In this class we will attune to the present moment through breath, as you dive deeper into the connection of yourself. Offering a meditative quality for a sense of ease and peace. 

~ POWER YOGA ~
Power Yoga is a fitness-based vinyasa practice. An offshoot of Ashtanga Yoga, it has many of the same qualities and benefits, including building internal heat, increased stamina, strength, and flexibility, as well as stress reduction. Teachers design their own sequences, while students synchronize their breath with their movement. The original Power Yoga was developed and founded by Beryl Bender Birch, but is now a term used to describe many vigorous vinyasa styles.

~ ENERGY MEDICINE YOGA & MEDITATION~
Life force flows through the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. Energy Medicine Yoga combines tapping into this life force energy and infusing it with yoga and meditation. These effective techniques of energy medicine assist in balancing chakras, meridians, and nadis, thus amplifying the benefits of your practice. Energy Medicine Yoga will help you create profound shifts in your physical and emotional well-being through the subtle body.
