This is a specially priced class – $5 (+HST) for non-members, free for members.

Fundamentals

Designed as both an introductory class for new students and an excellent way for experienced students to brush up on the basics, Fundamentals covers the essentials that form the foundation of a safe, effective, and enjoyable yoga practice, while exploring more deeply a specific aspect of the practice each week.

Level 1

Suitable for students who are relatively new to yoga or looking to deepen their knowledge of foundational poses. Classes focus on the fundamentals of postures, including breathwork and attention to alignment, while incorporating dynamic flow and varied sequences.

Levels 1-2 and 2

Classes that increase in difficulty to encourage you to find new levels within your practice. Each level offers progressively deeper work in asana, meditation, and pranayama in order to challenge students to move beyond perceived boundaries. Please talk to one of our knowledgable staff when trying to find the level that works best for your practice.

Meditation

Through the practice of mindfulness and meditation, this class teaches us how to be aware and awake to the present moment. We learn to see and accept things as they are, freeing our minds and opening our hearts. This class is free for members and pay-what-you-can for non-members with a suggested donation of $10 to $20 per class.

Mobilize and Restore

This class is an excellent compliment to vigorous or strenuous activity. We will use therapeutic movements and sequences to create greater mobility, followed by nourishing restorative postures that balance the nervous system and stimulate healing.

Restorative

A deeply nourishing experience. Props and gentle movements are utilized to restore, relax and heal the body. This class is suitable for any level of experience.

Rope Wall

Rope wall: suspended postures with the use of ropes to traction the spine and invert without compression, bringing health and hydration to the spine. Please consult our instructors before attending this class if you have the following: high blood pressure, pregnancy, and detached retina, or glaucoma.

Partner work may be included. All levels welcome.
