Aerial Yoga

Inspired by traditional yoga, pilates, dance, and acrobatics, Aerial Yoga is a relatively new form of yoga. Using a fabric hammock or yoga swing to support students, it allows them to deepen stretches and safely connect with postures they may not ordinarily be able to find on the mat.  Aerial Yoga is a challenging and fun way to relieve stress, decompress the spine, and strengthen the entire body. It is an exciting way for anyone looking to introduce fitness into their life or anyone with a curiosity for something different to complement their existing yoga practice.

All Levels

Classes that are suitable for all students, from foundational to intermediate to advanced. A unique class that offers a mixed-level practice with options to go deeper. All Levels classes will incorporate asana, breathwork and meditation.

Beginner

Get back to the basics. A class for both those in the early stages of yoga practice or those interested in refining the essential skills of the practice. We’ll take you through fundamental yoga postures, taking time to delve into pose alignment, breath practices, and the practice of moving and living mindfully. You’ll also learn about anatomical terms that you might hear in a yoga class, how to modify poses for your unique body, and the use of props to support your practice. All levels of flexibility, strength, and experience are welcome.

Intro to Meditation

This class is perfect for those new to meditation who want to learn the basics: what is meditation, what are the benefits and what are the first steps to begin. It will include some theory, at least one sit and time for questions to be answered. You’ll leave with practical guidelines to begin a simple home practice.

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, 2, 2-3

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.

Liberation Lounge

Liberation Lounge is a 108-minute practice that weaves the many strands of yoga together with live music from global sacred and ceremonial contexts. In addition to exploring an organic freestyle vinyasa practice, you can expect a deep dive into the richness of yogic philosophy, mantra, pranayama, meditation, and nada yoga, the practice of deep inner listening. This class is open to everyone, including adventurous beginners.

Meditate with Muse

In this weekly class, you will discover your mind-body connection in a completely unique way. Sessions will be led by the R&D team from Muse: the brain sensing headband and are designed to allow you to explore powerful, accurate real-time feedback during meditation. Every class will present a unique experience looking at aspects including brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements.

The experiences in this class will go above and beyond the current capabilities of Muse, providing you with a holistic view of your practice and how to go deeper. Through real-time feedback, we help you learn more about yourself, your internal world, and how to find calm.

All materials needed including Muse Headbands will be provided. Space is limited.

Meditation

Through the practice of mindfulness and meditation, this class teaches us how to be aware and awake to the present moment. Each class will include a 30 minute, mostly silent sit. We learn to see and accept things as they are, freeing our minds and opening our hearts.

Mobility & Deep Active Stretch

Using a variety of safe training methods, we first bring awareness to passive range of motion and then work on training these into active ranges of motion, which will improve joint mobility by building strength and increasing control over movement. This method is especially helpful for injury prevention and rehabilitation, improved performance (athletic and non-athletic), lasting articular health, and promoting cellular adaptations in the connective tissues of the body.

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.

Parent & Baby

In this welcoming and baby-friendly space, find the time to soothe aches and pains, re-align your hardworking body and mind, and cuddle and enjoy your little baby while connecting with a community of other parents. Dynamic classes will allow you to explore fluid movement and stretching, strength building, and restorative work to ease fatigue and make space for the joy of being a new parent!

For parents, please have your midwife or care provider’s permission to begin.

Pilates

A whole body workout that aims to balance joint mobility and strength. Expect mindful movement, both dynamic and subtle, that integrates the entire musculoskeletal and fascial system to improve posture and overall functionality in every day life. The results are long, lean muscles with increased joint mobility that overtime, provide increased protection from injury.

Pilates/Barre

A whole body, non-impact based workout that aims to balance joint mobility and strength. Expect a dynamic warm-up, standing barre-work, mat-work, and a cool-down stretch. This is a challenging class, both dynamic and subtle, that integrates the entire musculoskeletal and fascial system to improve posture, tone, and overall functionality in everyday life. The practice is a blend of dance-conditioning, pilates, yoga, and functional fitness meant to challenge through high reps of small, range of motion movements. The results are long, lean, sculpted muscles with increased joint mobility that over time, can provide increased protection from injury.
