YINYASA*

A pairing of two different styles of the practice of Yoga; Yinyasa is the fused practice of long-held passive poses of Yin with the active, dynamic yang style of Vinyasa (flow). This class will open the body to more flexibility and energy flow while encouraging a more contemplative, non-reactive quality of mind. After a few long held poses the class will move into a flow to strengthen and invigorate the body and mind.

VINYASA FLOW 

A popular class among Yogis, this practice includes traditional sun salutes with some added spice. This style of yoga is characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath, also commonly referred to as “flow” yoga.

Weights not provided. 45 Mins.  Check out a Demo of Lift and Flow here: Lift and Flow

YIN YOGA*

Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.

PELVIC FLOOR, CORE, AND MORE*

Pelvic Floor, Core, and More is excellent for expecting mamas, anyone with overactive bladders, PFD, incontinence, constipation, Diastasis Recti, Uterine or Vaginal prolapse, lack of core strength, and so much more. PRENATAL FRIENDLY!

CHAKRA FLOW*

Take a journey through the Chakras- your seven energy fields- in this all-levels flow class. You will learn more about each of the Chakras in the body from the crown to the root. Each practice will combine the union of mind, body, and spirit through asana (poses), breath work, mudras, mantras, and meditation. Bring harmony and balance to your body with this class!
