Gentle (no experience required, great if you just need a chill yoga day)
Welcoming to all bodies, styles, ages, and capabilities, gentle yoga provides a friendly and supportive environment for beginners who want the fundamentals and for practicing yogis looking to hone their awareness. Classes explore standard yoga poses, breath work, mindfulness techniques. We put it all together through simple sequences that link body, mind, and breath.
Ashtanga is a fast-paced, dynamic sequence that opens new dimensions of the mind-body-breathe connection, with a fixed sequence of postures designed to cultivate strength, flexibility, endurance, and a sense of stillness to the mind.

Ashtanga classes are open to all levels with modifications, prior yoga experience and knowledge of Sun Salutations are helpful.
Restorative (supported relaxing postures)
Restorative Yoga is a gentle, calming, therapeutic practice that soothes the nervous system and releases physical and mental tension. Props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, and straps support the body in gentle stretching sequences and nurturing, sustained postures that ease the entire system into relaxation and balance. Restorative Yoga is perfect for beginners and a great complement for more experienced practitioners. It can help heal the effects of chronic stress and fatigue, support recovery from illness or injury, and aid in navigating anxiety and stress.

Yin (passive, longer held postures designed to increase flexibility)
Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice with an emphasis on the hips and spine developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue expanding flexibility and aiding healing. Through mindful muscle relaxation, Yin promotes the healthy flow of energy through the connective tissue in the body. Postures are held for longer periods to give practitioners the opportunity to observe and bring awareness to the breath and sensations in the body. Yin is a wonderful compliment to a more vigorous yoga practice, running, cycling, or other more active pursuits. Essential Oils may be integrated into the class.
