Vinyasa Yoga: Loosely based on Ashtanga Yoga, we use the breath to move from one asana to the next. We practice in a warm, not hot, room. You will sweat. The carefully sequenced class will allow the body to release deeply held tightness and tension. Combined with a little music, some candles, and a nice big final relaxation, what’s not to love? Vinyasa yoga classes are geared to the practitioner with some experience, though all levels are welcome.
Hatha Yoga: Based on the series originated by Swami Satchidananda. We hold the poses for several breaths, delving deeper and deeper with every exhalation. Combined with breathing exercises, final relaxation, and a short meditation, Hatha Yoga is ideal for practitioners seeking a more gentle, restorative practice, as well as athletes looking to improve their game by increasing their flexibility and stamina.
Prenatal Yoga: Fantastic time to bond with your child while practicing yoga postures that relieve the stress and discomfort of pregnancy and breathing practices which aid in the big day! These 75 minute classes include a simple sun salutation, modified standing and seated postures specifically designed for the expectant mother, breathing practices, and a very satisfying savasana! This class is appropriate for women in their second or third trimester, with a doctor or midwife's permission.
Mommy and Baby Yoga: This class is taught once a month by Dorothea Liedl on Saturdays at 2:00pm and focuses on both baby and caregiver.
