Classes are 60 minutes unless noted.

Level: Basic/Beginner

These classes are suited for beginners as well as practicing yogis. The pace is a little slower and there's plenty of instruction to assist those who are just getting started.

Gentle Flow Yoga: Geared toward those who want a less rigorous yoga experience. Modified poses and props are offered to assist those who have physical injuries or other limitations (be sure to discuss these with your instructor). Open to all levels.

Resonate: Yoga & Sound Relaxation: The class begins with 40-45 minutes of basic yoga then transitions to deep relaxation that may include musical vibration (gong, singing bowl, rhythm drumming, etc.) or guided relaxation. Guaranteed to leave you feeling relaxed and restored.

Yin Yoga: You don't need to be flexible to benefit from the quiet stillness of Yin Yoga. Composed of a series of slow and relaxing floor poses, this practice focuses on gently stretching the connective tissue around the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. The result is less tension in the body, enhanced range of motion, and a quieter mind.

Level: Moderately Challenging

These classes are suited for physically fit beginners as well as practicing yogis. The pace is a little slower and there's plenty of instruction to assist those who are just getting started.

All Levels Yoga: This beginner-friendly class includes the basics but also offers more advanced options for experienced yogis.

Lengthen & Strengthen: You'll improve your flexibility while gently increasing strength. Open to all levels and geared toward those who want a less rigorous yoga experience.

TGIF Stress Relief Yoga: What better way to prepare for the weekend than a yoga class aimed at draining away the stress of your hectic week? Yoga with an emphasis on calming the nerves, concluding with a slightly longer period of relaxation. Suitable for all levels.

Morning Flow: Sunday mornings were meant for sleeping late and lounging around the house. So when you come to class, chances are your body is still a little stiff. That's why Morning Flow starts off nice and easy, warming your body up gradually and getting you ready for the yoga to follow.

Level: Challenging

These classes are open to all levels but are not recommended for those who are not currently both physically fit and physically active. These classes are not as slow-paced as those listed above, and also feature more challenging poses and sequences.

Yoga Hour: (Suitable for all levels, but designed to be challenging.) A basic yoga class, but designed to be challenging. Suitable for practicing yogis and physically active beginners.

Advanced Beginner/Intermediate Yoga: (Not recommended for beginners.) A 75-minute class for those who know the basics and want a longer class with more options for expanding their practice.

Vinyasa II: (Not recommended for beginners.) A 75-minute class for practicing yogis who know the basics, this class is less about instruction and more about practicing. Vinyasa practice involves more flow and fewer static (held) poses.
