Yoga poses benefit many functions and parts of the body but only if we are balanced and correctly aligned when we practice them.   This practical and interactive workshop explores using the wall to assist in training proper alignment in the poses.

Yoga Class Descriptions

Beginner and Gentle Yoga:  For those who are new to yoga and looking for a place to start learning the basic poses, and also for those who would like to continue to focus on the basic poses, breathing, stretching, strengthening and relaxation in a comfortable, non-judgmental atmosphere, and at your own pace.
All Levels Slow Flow:   This class is suited to all levels of yogis, offering instruction and choices for beginners and also opportunities to choose more challenging options for intermediate level yogis to increase the level of intensity.  The practice is a mix of focus on learning proper technique and safe transitions, and then implementing into various flow sequences to strengthen and stretch the entire body, followed by floor work, stretching and relaxation. 
Beginner and All Levels:  This 45 minute class will include warm up and work, then stretching and relaxation.  
All Levels Power:  This is a fitness/power class suited to all levels, practicing basic poses with extra focus on fitness and strengthening the upper body and core muscles, followed by stretching and relaxation.  Be prepared to sweat.

Yin Yoga:  Yin yoga practice targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each posture is held for long periods of time to encourage slow and safe opening of connective tissues. A perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga.  Yin yoga classes involve a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time. Although Yin yoga is a more passive practice it can be quite challenging due to the length of time postures are held.  Open to all levels of students.  Please note this is not a Restorative Yoga class. 
Intermediate to Advanced Yoga:
A strong working knowledge and experience with the basic poses is required.  We will be adding more challenging options for strength, flexibility and balance, and working into advanced inversions and back bends;   Students will be encouraged to make choices to develop their yoga practice towards Advanced at their own pace.
Prenatal Yoga:
Our prenatal classes are specifically designed to provide a safe and supportive environment for mamas-to-be to practice yoga.  Through physical yoga practice, breathing techniques, relaxation and meditation, we will safely strengthen and stretch to prepare for the expectant mother’s changing body.  In this positive and supportive environment, you will learn techniques to connect with your body, mind and Baby.
Active Vinyasa Flow:  This class will maintain a steady flowing yoga workout for a balance of muscle flexibility, strengthening and stamina, with focus on flowing through our pose sequences, uniting movement with breath.   Participants should be familiar with basic pose technique to move into and transition out of each pose with safe technique and alignment. Variations and options will be given for each pose and transition so participants can work at their own desired pace and style.  Be prepared to sweat.
Yoga for Absolute Beginners:  This 4 class session will “start at the beginning” to teach the very basics.   Participants will be able to learn the poses with detailed instruction and at their own pace - a great start for anyone who wants to try yoga. After attending the Absolute Beginner classes, participants would be prepared to continue their yoga practice in another weekly class.   
New to Yoga?

Here is some information that may be helpful
- Wear bare feet and loose comfortable clothing.  Longer shorts and a t-shirt are fine.
- If you do not have a yoga mat yet, the studio has mats available for you to borrow.  The studio also provides yoga blocks and straps that you may wish to use.
- It is best not to practice yoga on a full stomach.
- Drinking water an hour or so before the yoga class will help you to not become thirsty during class.  However, you can still bring a water bottle with you if you wish.
- A small hand towel may be helpful as an extra small prop for your neck, knees, etc.
- Please do not chew gum during class.  This can interfere with breathing, distract the other students, and possibly be a safety hazard in some poses. 

In consideration for your fellow participants:
- Some people arrive early to class to relax or meditate.  Please talk quietly before class so as not to disturb the other students.
- We all try to be on time for class, but if you are late and class has started, please come into the studio quietly.
- Some people are very allergic scents.  Please do not wear perfume to class.
- Please remember to turn off your cell phone when you come into the studio.   If you need to leave your phone on because you are "on call" - just let the teacher know before class. 
Parking:  There is free parking around us on the street and avenue; signs indicate 2 or 3 hour free parking.  There is also free parking right beside us in the SGI parking lot after 5pm every day.  Please note the spots around our building marked "24 Hour Private Parking" are not ours.  Thank you.
