Yoga: Power & Demanding Classes
Welcome to healing and connection. By committing to your yoga practice you will notice an increased sense of presence, wellness, and mindfulness - as calm infuses into your life on so many levels.
Most of the classes we teach offer consist of Hatha and Vinyasa (Flow) yoga principles. Our teachers draw from diverse backgrounds including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Baptiste, Bikram, and more. We offer a unique breadth of experience as our instructors come from an eclectic mix of backgrounds. They bring ideas and teachings from several different schools.
Ready to regain your flexibility and feel and be stronger? A great class is built around listening to your body, and honoring the messages that is sends. No expectations, just surrender!
We believe that every practitioner has his or her own valid reason to step on the mat, and we respect each person's individual experience. We encourage you to adjust or modify your practice as you see fit.
Looking to add some power or more challenge to your practice? Below are class listings that may be considered demanding or powerful. We suggest some experience before trying these. If new to yoga, it is recommended that INTRO SERIES and/or YOGA ESSENTIALS is taken first.
