In the Intro to Aerial Yoga Series, you will stretch, swing, invert, build strength, learn about yourself and your body while you are supported or suspended in an aerial yoga hammock. The hammocks are safety-rated to hold up to 2000 lbs, ensuring that all students can practice safely. The beauty of aerial yoga is that you don’t need any previous experience with acrobatics, aerial dance, or even yoga.
During conditioning moves, your body is partially supported by the hammock to challenge muscles in a way unique to aerial yoga. You’ll work your core and strengthen your back using both the hammock and your own body weight to provide resistance. When your weight is shared with the hammock, you will be able to move through your full range of motion. You may find that your new core strength will change your day-to-day functioning.

Hatha Yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in the world. Hatha Yoga uses Classic postures (asana) and conscious breathing (Pranayama) in combination with mental focus to develop awareness, strength and flexibility, and relaxation. These skills are practiced in fundamental poses both seated and standing. Through proper alignment and mindful actions of the body, Hatha Yoga brings balance, strength, and a sense of well being to the practitioner. All Hatha Yoga classes end with Savasana (relaxation). The class is appropriate for all levels.
Gentle Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that is a gentler, slower-paced practice that makes it more accessible to people of all sizes, ages, and fitness levels. Gentle Hatha is a great place to start for those who just want to take it slower. The focus is on warming up the body, connecting with the breath and beginning to work the joints and glands. It creates an atmosphere of safety and comfort that fosters self-acceptance. This is a wonderful beginning class. Appropriate for all levels
Vinyasa - The word Vinyasa translates as, to place in a special way. The common understanding of Vinyasa is a flowing sequence of specific asana coordinated with the movement of breath. Vinyasa requires that we cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next, one breath at a time. In asana a posture is an experience that we arrive at not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally as well. These classes use a vigorous flow of postures designed to warm the body, and build stamina, strength and flexibility. Students should expect to move continuously throughout the entire class. Each class is creatively constructed; there is no single rulebook, philosophy or sequence and the classes are unique from class to class, guaranteeing a different experience each time you step on to your mat. Students are encouraged to move at their own pace. A basic knowledge of Hatha Yoga poses and alignment is encouraged, before attending a Vinyasa class. This is taught as a multi- level class
This class takes the previous format, of Vinyasa Flow, into a more vigorous, fitness-based approach to the vinyasa- style of yoga to create an increase in stamina, strength and flexibility. It is recommended you have a strong practice and experience in Vinyasa style classes to attend this class.
Slow Flow Vinyasa
This Slow Flow Vinyasa class explores the foundations of body, mind, and breath. Integrating the whole body in a progressive yet accessible series of postures to stretch and strengthen as well as migrate towards balance and mindfulness. All levels welcome, Slow Flow is a great way to explore foundation poses and work toward flexibility while cultivating a sense of graceful peace and well-being. Sequences focus on classic postures integrated with a mix of modified variations, using the support of props and assists as needed. Practice includes traditional sun salutations followed by standing, seated, spinal twists, hip and hamstring openers, balance and core strengtheners with special emphasis on the breath. In this class the postures are held slightly shorter than in a restorative class but slightly longer than a traditional Vinyasa Flow class. Ease into your Sunday gently with a fun and fluid practice to awaken your body and your spirit!
