Class Descriptions

Beginners:

3-5 week Beginner series are offered various times throughout the year, led by 500 RYT (Registered Yoga Trainers) instructors; perfect for anyone new to yoga. Check our website for the next offering.

Beginner classes offered regularly throughout the week to continue your practice.  This class is a perfect introduction to Vinyasa flow.  Classes are either non-heated or warm.

Restorative classes are a slower paced practice that encourages mindfulness and deeper openings through the use of longer holds.  Attention is given to modifications that allow participants to experience the benefits of each posture.

Vinyasa all level classes are offered in both warm and non hot conditions that are slower paced.  You will learn body awareness and basic postures along with their modifications, that are appropriate for all ages and levels.

Therapeutic Yoga is a slower, paced restorative practice. Each class is designed to improve and support your body’s optimal functioning. We will examine common conditions in the body and treat them with a specific sequence of yogic postures, meditations, and breath work exercises.  You will leave each class with a general comfort in your body and specific tools for maintaining health and well-being within yourself.

All Levels:

Classes appropriate for beginners to advanced.  While basic postures are incorporated into the vinyasa flow, the instructor may also add in some intermediate asanas as a way to deepen the practice.  (Modifications will also always be given.)

Community $7 cash throughout the week, is for all levels and is the same as the other Vinyasa classes but offered at a discounted rate because of off peak hours; offered heated and non-heated.

DTY Barre- While Barre has its origins in ballet, no dance experience is needed, and all levels of fitness experience are welcome in this class.  You will spend time on mat-based exercises as well as exercises at the barre. A DTY barre class consists of low impact/high repetition movements, with small isometric exercises to sculpt your arms, core, and legs (especially your booty).   Our barre instructors incorporate a variety of props, including light hand weights, resistance bands, soft pilates balls, and disc sliders, and no two classes are the same!  All of our barre instructors are barre certified through various certification programs. This class will shape your body FAST using muscle groups you didn’t realize you had!

Lunch- your midday hour long fix in non-hot conditions.  You will learn body awareness and basic postures along with their modifications, that are appropriate for all ages and levels.

Express classes are offered in hot conditions that allow you to get in and get out.  You will learn body awareness and basic postures along with their modifications, that are appropriate for all ages and levels.
