Time change starting 1/31 class will be on Thursday from 5 – 6 pm
Yin Yoga helps to increase flexibility by strengthening the joints,
ligaments and fascia. We will be using breath to slow the mind
down and gentle movement to help the body surrender into longer
held asanas. This is a relaxing slow paced class with all asanas taking
place on the floor (no standing asanas). It is perfect for beginners
as well as the intermediate or advanced yogi who wants to
increase their flexibility or just let go of their week

(yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help 
bring peace to the mind and body. This class then begins to flow 
at a quicker pace to build heat and strength in more challenging postures, 
which are synchronized with your breath and movement. 
Based on proper alignment and form, but moving with fluidity. We 
complete our class with calming Yin poses to relax and revive
NEW POP UPS
All Level Hatha Flow with Ryan Lane
Thursdays at 6:30 pm 
Starting 1/31 new start time 6:15 – 7:45 pm 

A hybridization of Hatha & Vinyasa Flow Yoga, this 
flowing practice of sequenced asanas (yoga postures) 
and pranayama (breathing exercises) helps bring peace 
to mind and body, preparing both for deeper spiritual 
practices such as meditation by connecting breath and the 
continuous flow of movement. This is a practice designed 
to build heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental 
focus. While this class may be strenuous for beginners, it 
is intended for new through advanced yogis. This class is 
specifically developed with yogis who are also runners, 
triathletes and/or men in mind. But women are welcome
and encouraged to come.
Hatha & Vinyasa Flow Instructor
Ryon has practiced yoga and meditation for the last decade, discovering
 the benefit of both after recovering from a broken neck. His classes
 incorporate music, dharmic wisdom, sequencing balancing effort and ease,
 and an emphasis on building strength, improving alignment and developing
 focus between movement and breath. In Ryon’s classes expect to sweat,
 be energized, feel powerful, find some bliss and probably sleep better
MEDITATION IN MOTION
Sunday Morning Progressive
Slow Flow All Level Yoga at 8 am with Oana Lansman
starting on Sunday, January 13th

Start your Sunday by releasing accumulated stress
 and tension so you can cultivate inner calm and remember to breathe deeply.
This class is a meditation in motion that invites you to cultivate a steadiness
of mind as you go deep into the physical and subtle/energetic body.
 Emphasizes the integration of inner and outer, breath and body, mind and heart.
Variations of postures will be given so you can challenge your edge and grow or,
 take it down a notch for the day and still grow your practice.
 Sitting meditative pauses will complement the asana flow.
This is an All Level Progressive Class.

    Lying down in deep relaxation, drift away into your own inner world of restoration to the soothing sound of voice, crystal singing bowls, and percussion instruments. Arise with peace, clarity, and a greater awareness of your true self.

  • New Year, New Neck! Unraveling the knots of the neck, shoulders and upper back with Sara Hess Feb. 3, 2019 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    Modern technology offers countless benefits, but the fact remains: many of us spend hours sitting in front of our computers, hunched over our mobile phones and tablets, and the repetitive movement patterns associated with using these digital devices can wreak havoc on neck and shoulder happiness. Our use of Tech can cause neck and shoulder strain, and even weakness.

    As it turns out, one reason why so many of us suffer from chronic neck tension is because our neck muscles are weak! This is why stretching and massage don’t always help long term. While it can be relaxing, it doesn’t address the underlying causes of the discomfort. Join Sara Hess in this 2.5 hour workshop and learn to move in ways that realign your posture, help release that tension and promote more functional, strengthening movement patterns.

    In this workshop you will:

    Exercises to mobilize your upper back and shoulders to create a foundation for a stable, strong, healthy neck and upper back
    Learn to induce relaxation + reduce stress to help you recruit the right muscles and get the most out of the neck exercises
    Exercises to improve your neck stability and function

  • Self Love Workshop with Adriana Cerundolo Feb. 9, 2019 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Our heart is only as free to the degree to which we love ourselves. With an electromagnetic field stronger than our brain, the heart is our ultimate sensing tool and intermediary between our internal and external world. The heart space holds the seat of our divinity and our soul’s wisdom.Unlocking our heart’s potential starts with clearing barriers to self-love. It requires turning inwards and allowing our heart to be felt and seen. Self-love takes courage. “Cour” means heart, “age” means age; literally, being in the time of the heart. With courage, we are able to face anything while staying rooted in ourselves, rooted in our truth and in our heart. It’s from this place where we shine.

    This 3-hr workshop is a sacred space to explore your heart. Following a kundalini yoga practice to open the heart, we will journey into our inner wisdom through a crystal bowl sound bath, and integrate our experience through free-form movement and art expression. Expect to leave refreshed, centered, and connected to your purest essence.

    “Love is the most secure place in an individual. It is very secure, very deep, very curative healing. It has no pain. It’s not limited. The highest state of security of an individual is when a person is in the state of love. It is a consciousness which can penetrate through anything for that thing and nothing can penetrate it.”Yogi Bhajan

  • Awesome Kid's Yoga Camp (6-12 yrs old) with Daina Selph Jul. 29 - Aug. 2 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    During this week long camp children will explore ways to take a mindful approach to their world. We will focus on teaching traditional yoga poses, breathing exercises, meditation and relaxation techniques in a fun and playful way. Students learn important lessons in self-awareness, self-control, social skills, positive thinking and body awareness. We practice both active and passive poses, helping children find this balance in class can sometimes flow into the other areas of their lives outside of class.
    Each class begins with a group discussion followed by yoga poses, journaling and an art project which is customized to a daily theme.

HATHA

Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha classes focus on correctly aligning the body to improve general posture, breathing and circulation. Hatha is ideal for beginners and those with physical limitations.

IYENGAR

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.

RESTORATIVE

A form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body.

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic system of practicing asanas (poses). Yoga postures flow in a logical sequence. Each position complements those that precede and follow. This practice focuses on the synchronization of breath & the continuous flow of movement. Vinyasa is a strong practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. This class can be strenuous; may be appropriate for beginners.

YIN YOGA

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.

CORE BALANCE

This class will help you build core awareness, stability and strength.  You will learn how to safely strengthen and engage the core abdominal complex, learn techniques to release body muscle tension.  A stronger and stable core will better support the spine resulting in better posture alignment, balanced breath and may help reduce minor lower back and neck issues.

Embrace the moment, Embrace Life!

Live life with balance, grounding and love.
