a safe place to begin

Beginner Classes

Calm

CALM takes you gently through mindful postures and sequences of movement that are safe and accessible to anyone from beginner to seasoned yogi. The goal of this class is to promote relaxation, harmony and inner peace and to experience what true CALM really feels like.

Yoga Restore

Perfect for all levels, RESTORE brings YOU back. This restful practice, designed to restore the mind, body and spirit, includes postures fully supported by props. Students will be guided to relax into each pose to feel renewed and RESTORED.

Align

ALIGN can be thought of as a reset of body and mind. This classical and holistic approach to yoga begins with breathing exercises (pranayama) to create awareness within the body. Each gentle pose that follows works with the breath to deepen and re-ALIGN that connection. It is a perfect beginner’s class for learning pranayama and a way to deepen a yoga practice for the more experienced.

Support

Yoga can be for everyone, regardless of physical limitations. This class offers all the benefits of a yoga class…just with a little extra SUPPORT. Using chairs (as seats or support), you can expect to move through gentle poses that will enhance flexibility, improve strength and increase physical awareness while creating harmony among mind, body, and spirit.

Breathe

BREATHE focuses on the essential role breath plays as an anchor in centering our mind, body and spirit. Breath by breath, this class can help alleviate stress and promote inner peace and restful sleep while creating a stronger yoga practice. We explore breathing practices (Pranayama), which are woven throughout the asanas and sequences. All you have to do is BREATHE. All levels welcome.

Begin

Are you curious about the benefits of yoga, but don’t know where to BEGIN? This class is for you. Through a series of basic yoga poses, breathing techniques, and movement sequences, you will quickly discover how yoga increases flexibility and strength and fosters a sense of peace and wellness. Absolutely no experience is necessary. All levels are welcome, from first timers to anyone wanting to get back to the basics.

Ready to slowly challenge yourself

Intermediate Level Classes

Bliss

It’s the best of both worlds. BLISS is a blend of fluid yoga sequences and relaxing, restorative poses. In this class, you will flow through a medium-paced vinyasa, ending with a series of longer held seated postures… all the while linking breath with movement. Yoga BLISS centers on bringing awareness to all the sensations in the body, promoting inner peace and BLISS. All levels welcome.

Spirit

For those looking to go beyond Asana, SPIRIT is a soul-soothing journey that will leave you feeling restored, peaceful and full of SPIRIT. The class is held in circular formation as students go through a meditation, guided reading and affirmations, followed by fun and fulfilling partner poses that promote connection and expansion. All levels welcome.

Brewing Storm

Brewing Storm (formally Slow FLOW) is a satisfying journey of slow and mindful transitions from one pose to another, requiring sustained control and concentrated effort. The class is designed to help promote personal power and strength in the mind, body and spirit. This is a great class for anyone starting a Vinyasa Flow or for those that want to slow things down and savor the STORM!

Love

LOVE connects us all… and the focus of this class is the all-important aspect of self-love. Through the practices and art of guided meditation, poetry, pranayama (breathing), journaling, gentle asana & vinyasa flows and restorative poses, together we’ll seek the thread of connection, joy and, of course, LOVE. All levels welcome.

Here is where we build heat

Advanced Level Classes

Storm

STORM is a stimulating compilation of heat-building poses and sequences that will nourish any storm! Increase energy, strength, awareness, and Self-LOVE in this class, while you detoxify and reduce stress allowing for a deeper connection to your authentic self. This sequencing of fluid namaskars (sun salutations), hip openers, backbends, and inversions, all in sync with the breath, create a dynamic dance interconnecting mind, body and spirit. This practice is accompanied by upbeat storm-inspired music, and a fast-paced vinyasa. A practice of “Brewing Storm” is recommended.

Strong

Mindful transitions, sustained control, and concentrated effort make STRONG an irresistibly challenging class. The focus is less on the destination and more on the journey. Students tap into both inner and outer strength to build endurance, promote personal power, and learn to gracefully move through the world, both on and off the mat.

Come just as you are

All Level Classes

Community

Relax and release in a mixed level vinyasa flow yoga class taught by one of our newly graduating “Root to Rise” NS Teachers. All levels welcome. A great class for beginners and the “yoga-curious”.

 

Yin

Yin is a slow quiet practice that helps improve circulation, increase flexibility, widen range of motion and alleviate joint stiffness. Low intensity floor poses are held for increasing lengths of time for the purpose of making the body’s connective tissues longer and stronger. This is as much a meditative practice as it is a physical one and will give you the opportunity for peaceful contemplation as you settle into each deep targeted stretch opening up the space for suppressed emotions, thoughts and feelings to release.

Mindful Meditation

Dhyana (Meditation), one of the 8 limbs of yoga, is a state of absorption with a focus on simply being. It is a practice that takes time and patience and is more about depth than length. Benefits include, but are not limited to: stress relief, mental clarity, improved mood, greater self-esteem and self-acceptance, stronger immune system, heightened energy levels, and a deeper connection to yourself and those around you. There are many ways to get there and this Mindful Meditation class gives you a safe and supportive environment to discover which method is best for you.

Mindful Stretch

Similar to Yin Yoga, Mindful Stretch focuses on opening up the body and mind through the isolation and gentle stretching of our connective joint tissues such as ligaments, tendons, fascia, etc. The class starts with a discussion on mindfulness, self-compassion, loving kindness, gratitude, etc. These concepts or one of your own will serve as seeds for peaceful contemplation during poses. We will then take our time settling into each pose allowing us to hold it for an extended period without overstretching. Mindful Stretch promotes greater flexibility and a broader range of motion in our shoulders, back, hips. and pelvis.

Mindful Movement

This Mindful Movement class guides us in bringing mindfulness to the movement and sensations of our bodies from the supportive space of our mats. We are called to invite any tightness and stiffness into the practice with loving curiosity, then slowly witness the release of tension, the healing, as we learn what the body and heart have to tell us.

Mindful Hike

Breathe fresh air, explore new terrain, and stretch it all out as we take our yoga practice into the woods. We’ll hike up and down rolling hills while weaving deep, relaxing poses throughout the journey, building strength, balance, flexibility and a connection with nature. The hike and yoga practice is about one hour long. All levels welcome (moderate inclines on the trail).
