Free, Guided Meditation
Join us each week for a Friday free, guided meditation. Embrace the present moment through breathing exercises. Train your mind to induce a mode of consciousness to reach inner peace. No meditation experience required.
Yoga nidra ( first Friday of every month)
Instructors: Amy Rogg, Jessica Jacobson
When we link the breath with a sequence of movement we have the opportunity to enter an extraordinary flow of awareness in which the body, mind, and spirit weave together into a unified whole. Evolutionary Vinyasa creatively engages dynamic sequencing to encourage the opening of somatic intelligence so we can fully embody and express our innate potential. Through inspirational teachings, vibrant music, challenging postures, playfulness and a safe place to inhabit our bodies authentically, Evolutionary Vinyasa supports movement innovation, and the grounds to directly experience the essence of true yoga.

Restorative & Yin
Istructors: Ranya Anabtawi, Robin Jaffe
Restorative Yoga is therapeutic. The class offers four to six floor poses held passively for ten minutes or more. Practitioners support themselves with props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks. The added support allows the student to completely relax and surrender to the pose. When you are in a state of relaxation there is no movement or effort, so the mind becomes still. The relaxation response brings the body into balance. It deepens the breath, reducing stress hormones. It slows the heart rate, lowering blood pressure. Muscles relax, relieving fatigue and anxiety. The class is appropriate for all levels and ages. If you must be gentle to your joints, this class is for you. If you need to slow down and reduce your stress level, this class is for you. If you would like to quiet your mind and take time for yourself, this class is for you. If you have never practiced yoga, this class is for you.
Yin Yoga improves the health of connective tissue, especially around the joints. Gentle physical stress is applied to the targeted area through controlled stretching. Poses are performed while either seated or laying down. Props such as bolsters, straps and blocks are used to enhance each pose. The body's own weight applies pressure to the area of focus. No muscular energy is exerted in the stretches. Poses are held for as long as five minutes. The student relaxes into each pose, making subtile adjustments and eventually surrendering to it completely. Yin yoga is a quiet practice. It includes a beginning meditation, dim lights and a final relaxation. This class has no prerequisites. Pregnant moms are welcome in this class. However, some poses may not be appropriate for pregnant women. So, if you are pregnant, please tell the teacher before the class begins. The teacher will offer an alternative pose should the need arise.

This unique class offers a way to balance the high activity, movement, stresses, and heat that everyday life presents. It is an excellent compliment to your Vinyasa or Flow Yoga practice. The core of the practice, the Moon Salutation, is meant to open up joints and muscles through wide, dynamic stretches. It is a quieting sequence that invites you to bow and cultivate the moon's soothing lunar energy. Students will focus on breath, soothing slow flow, inversions, and more time in each asana to replenish vital energy. We will stimulate clear energy flow through sequential opening and therapeutic movement. Students are given a challenging, new and expansive yoga experience which will help to balance and rejuvenate the body.
Vinyasa Flow & Power Vinyasa
Instructors: Edwina Ferro, Jos Bols , Veronica Agosta, Kimberly Paul, Jochen Kumm, Faysal Abi, Rich Chin, Warren Flick, Jenniferlyn Chiemingo, Amy Rogg,
Vinyasa is a dynamic style of yoga, intended to link breath to movement. Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy or sequence that teachers must follow. So there is a lot of room for individual personalities to come through. Because of the wide variety of asanas available, teachers often change sequences, introduce new poses and vary standard movements, creating new spaces for students to explore. Vinyasa Yoga has wide appeal because it means different things to different people.
No Vinyasa class is the same, so come with an open mind and be surprised. Like everything in life, the student can make the class as easy or difficult as they choose.
Power Vinyasa is a strong flow asana sequence. The style is a combination of deep breathing and specifically sequenced sets of flowing yoga postures. Classes are always open to all levels; newer students will be able to modify poses and work on building a solid and safe foundation and more experienced students will be offered advanced variations to explore their edge. This class is an opportunity to breathe, move with your body, sweat and have fun. Students of all levels are encouraged to adjust their practice according to their abilities.
Saturday morning Vinyasa at 8:30 am is moderately heated.
Instructors: Ranya Anabtawi, Ashley Travis, Sabrina Garretson
This practice aims to get in touch with feeling as opposed to thinking. Drop from your head space into your heart space where we will cultivate a sense of empowerment, vulnerability, personal truth, and self acceptance. All level asanas will revolve around opening physical and energetic systems in the body and breath. Meditative aspects of the practice will help us detach from our stories and thoughts and teach us about what the present moment has to offer. Come slow down to get strong!
stretchYoga: Yoga for Flexibility
Instructor: Faysal Abi
This class is ideal for anyone looking to improve their flexibility and deepen their personal yoga practice. The emphasis will be on active and passive stretching utilizing breath work. Our focus will be on the body parts that tend to hold a majority of our stiffness such as: neck, shoulders, back, hips and legs. Students new to yoga and advanced practitioners are welcome. This is a stretch class not a flow class.
Happy Hour Yoga is a one hour Vinyasa Flow or Slow Flow. Vinyasa is a dynamic style of yoga, intended to link breath to movement. Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity.
