Hatha Flow (Hot):

Hatha Yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in the world. Hatha Yoga uses postures (asana) and conscious breathing (Pranayama) in combination with mental focus to develop awareness, strength & flexibility and relaxation.

Hatha Yoga will bring strength and focus to the body from head to toe. By removing the flow and focusing on longer static holds, emphasis is placed on the pose itself rather than linking movements. Beginners can use this time to build up to our “flow” classes, while more advanced students can work on precision and alignment. The focus will be on foundational postures, however the instructor will provide modifications for every experience level, giving you the chance to expand your practice if you so choose. Because this class is not a set sequence, you can expect to learn something new and different every time.

*Suitable for Beginners

Freedom Flow (Hot & Heated):

Freedom Flow is an uplifting, energized class designed to cultivate an acute awareness of body movement and breath. Freedom Flow allows instructors the freedom to play with syllabus to spend more time on deeper understanding of a particular asana, or theming the class toward a “big move”. This freedom allows the instructor to assess the energy in the room and work with the class without having to stick to a regimented routine. The freestyle sweetness of this class calls for playfulness and spontaneity but always with mindfulness and awareness. Plan to breath and practice your way to transcendence, joy, openness and freedom of the mind, body and soul.

*Suitable for beginners

Consisting of standing, balancing, seated, and inverted postures, it is both invigorating and peaceful. Be prepared shine bright as you leave class feeling rejuvenated and ready for the week ahead.

Yin/Yang Fusion(Heated):

The two practices of yin and yang yoga have very different intentions and both are very important for a balanced and healthy body. Yin Yoga activity is slow, steady with a sense of core softness and surrender. Yang activity is mobile, builds to an apex before calming down and maintains a core strength that requires appropriate effort.The combination of Yin/Yang yoga allow for setting up inner alignment, creating the foundation for outer or postural alignment. The unique fusion of this class creates the perfect balance of building mobility and strength in the deep connective tissues and joints(yin), while lengthening and strengthening the muscles in the body(yang). 

*Suitable for Beginners

Moonlight Meditation (Heated):

Join Alaynne West-Tweten on selected dates for a guided meditation series focused on finding peace and clarity in your life.
Meditation leads to a state of “thoughtless awareness” in which the excessive stress producing activity of the mind is neutralized without reducing alertness and effectiveness. Meditation enables one to focus on the present moment rather than dwell on the unchangeable past or undetermined future.
Whether you are new to meditation or have a current practice, everyone can benefit from this class.

*Suitable for beginners

Yin Yoga by Candlelight (Heated):

Yin yoga is often described as the other half of a yoga practice. In relation to Yoga, a Yang practice is a faster practice, affecting muscles, making them longer and stronger. A yin yoga practice is a slower, deeper practice affecting the connective tissues of the body. Yin Yoga encourages the body to slowly and mindfully enter yin poses using the breath to stimulate the flow of chi(energy) and remain highly focused on the sensations promoted by the pose. The lengthy posture steadiness and stillness allows one to develop passive yin qualities of surrender, allowing full nourishment to the body’s meridians and joints. Join us in a relaxing candlelit environment to cleanse the mind and body- a perfect ending to your day.

*Suitable for beginners

Buti Yoga (Heated):

The only way to transform your body in a sustainable way is to fall in LOVE with your workout + wellness lifestyle.
Buti Yoga is a chance to create – let go – connect and sweat with intention. Every time you step on your mat, you have a chance to break through the emotional or physical barriers that set you free.
Buti Yoga fuses power yoga with cardio-intensive tribal dance + sculpting movement. It uses the Spiral Structure technique to sculpt + tone the deep abdominal muscles that stabilize and strengthen the body.
*Suitable for beginners 
Open Studio/Private Practice (Heated):
Open studio self practice is not a guided yoga class.  While an instructor is on hand, this is an open practice room for self guided practice and is the ideal setting to develop and mature your personal practice. Take time to go within, create and explore.  Whether you are taking postures or just sitting for breathing and meditation, this is the perfect class to bring out your inner teacher.  Open practice is included in unlimited memberships.  Otherwise it is a $5 drop-in fee.
