Power

Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements.  This type of yoga is taught in a heated studio which makes it a vigorous and revitalizing form of physical fitness.  It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session.  Vinyasa meaning, “flow” or “to move without resistance,” incorporates interval and cross-training exercises to challenge both the aerobic and anaerobic systems of the body. As your body adapts, it is important to vary the types, intensity and duration of the exercises.  Power Vinyasa yoga incorporates regular sequences that become familiar to students, but incorporates variations to modify, intensify, or challenge the body by altering the pace or duration of poses, and the frequency that they are repeated.

 

Hatha

The translated meaning is Sun and Moon with the balance of masculine and feminine.  Masculine is the active, hot, sun and the feminine is the cool, moon and we all have each aspect within us.  The postures during this class are static.  This class is designed for strength and flexibility and focuses on opening the many channels within our body and especially focuses on the spine.  This class is also wonderful for beginners too! If you are wanting to learn balance and gain both inner and outer strength, this class is for you.

 

Yin

Deep stretching and opening of joints and restoring energy and peace and bringing you back to your natural self.  This class is designed to improve muscular strength, endurance and flexibility.  You can utilize straps and blocks for allowing yourself to get deeper into muscle and joint opening.  Yin is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time — five minutes or longer per pose is typical.  Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues — the tendons, fascia and ligaments — with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.  These poses are also designed to improve the flow of subtle energy that runs through the meridian pathways of the body.  Improved flow is believed to improve organ health, immunity and emotional well-being.  Yin is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but rather as a complementary practice to balance the effects of more active forms of yoga and exercise.

 

Bar Yoga & Pilates

Utilizing a ballet bar for core and glute toning, as well as elongating muscles.  This class integrates the fat-burning format of interval training with muscle-shaping isometrics to reshape the entire body.  The non-impact, one-hour workout targets all major muscle groups. Get there early, this class packs out!

 

Yoga Sculpt

This class is a total body workout, sculpting your body in this class while packing in plyometrics, cardio, yoga and weight-lifting all in one hour that will leave you breathless!  On its own, yoga is a great strength and flexibility workout; add weights and it becomes an express ticket to sleek, defined muscles and increased stamina.  Yoga with weights combines hatha yoga series with 1, 3, or 5 pound hand-held weights. While the weights require added exertion, they also act as guides, engaging the correct muscle groups and forcing your limbs to work together to balance.  Practicing yoga with weights instills an awareness of how your body is meant to move.

 

Kundalini

Kundalini Yoga, also known as laya yoga, is a school of yoga that is influenced by Shaktism and Tantra.  It derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana.
