Dance to Freedom
Dance to Freedom is all about moving and breathing. The music is a vibration, the breath a vibration, our body responds with a vibration called movement. We will start learning how to use and fill up the space and before you know it, build to a pulsating driving rhythm that is guaranteed to make you want to move. We will work our way to a seated meditation or a resting pose. Dance to Freedom is the dance between our body and our breath. Dance with us to celebrate, dance with us to release the tensions and burdens that the drudgery of our daily routines can place on us. Dance with us and just be!

Hot Power Practice
A “HOT” yoga practice with minimal cuing, no assists and smooth music, creating a synchronized quiet chorus of movement and breath. This class structure assumes you know basic alignment and that you want to sweat and flow.
Level 1 & 2
This is a heated class sequenced in a way that uses the breath to establish a mind-body connection, core work to develop a strong and stable core, abdominals to strengthen lower back, vinyasa to build heat and standing poses to increase aliveness, strength and flexibility in the hips and legs. As a student you will be encouraged to move mindfully, feel every breath and explore your own unique expression of each pose.
Mixed Level classes (all levels)
These classes cover the range of Basics and Vinyasa classes. They are designed to specifically warm up key areas of the body like the abdominals, lower back and shoulders prior to moving into any flowing sequences. Modifications and variations are offered to increase or decrease the intensity of the class.
Heated (80+ degrees), flowing classes based on the Baptiste Vinyasa Power Yoga style. This style offers a vigorous, fast-paced series of poses designed to condition the whole body. Beginning with sun salutations, students move from one posture to another in a continual flow and link movements to breath with the aim of creating freedom in the body, peace of mind, and the ability to move more powerfully and authentically.
Qigong is a Chinese discipline of movement and breath used to protect health, enhance the spirit, qi, and the mind, and promote relaxation and mental balance. This class will introduce basic qigong exercises including the 8 pieces of brocade (baduanjin), the small microcosmic orbit, and stake standing. This is a slow, gently-moving class. No experience is necessary.
Restorative yoga is about moving the mind and body away from normal activity and into a relaxed state of being. Practicing a variety of asanas (forward bends, backbends, twists, inversion); each pose will be held for 5-20 minutes, allowing the body time to unwind and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.
This fast paced class introduces the flowing form of yoga called Vinyasa. Vinyasa, which means breath-synchronized movement, is a vigorous style based on the performance of a series of poses called Sun Salutations, in which movement is matched to the breath. These classes typically start with a number of Sun Salutations to warm up the body for more intense stretching, inversions, or backbends done later in the class. More advanced students are offered challenging variations.
Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today. In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive 'stress' on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body's meridian system, which enhances the body's energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. And as this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation.
Yoga Tune Up®
Yoga Tune Up® is a conscious corrective exercise format that improves your overall strength, flexibility and coordination. It helps you to identify where your practice is challenged by clearly identifying areas of the body that have been undetected, underused or lack awareness. We use asana as corrective exercise, and include a unique therapeutic element of self-massage with myo-fascial release therapy balls. In class we will excavate unhealthy tension patterns and blind spots, and discover a “new normal” while moving back into complete physiological balance.
