Asanas and Chakras

An experiential chakra practice. Travel through each energy center, or chakra, from the bottom to the top, re-balancing the mind and body. We use postures and breath to clear and strengthen each chakra, or pychic plexus.

Guided meditation integrates the work and Sanskrit chanting with the sounds of the chakras create wholeness and inner peace. Healing mantras are often used. This is a practical, mystical tour of the chakras and the inner body. You will discover something new each time.

 

Introduction to Yoga

Designed as an introduction to the practices of yoga and also for those who would like to go at a slower pace. Classes are usually small and give students the opportunity to learn fundamentals correctly. Yoga is safe and enjoyable even at the start, and can help you to feel a deeper sense of wellness and peace.

Flight!/ Partnering Yoga

Move and breathe in relationship to yourself and another. Through a unique sequence of postures and balances, find in a steady center, strengthen your core while releasing strain, open your lower back and discover great flexibility and freedom. Go beyond that which you can do alone. Flight! creates an expanded state of awareness through sensitivity, balance, trust, breath, and focus. Come alone and be matched with a partner in class or bring a friend and work together. All levels are welcome.

Kundalini Yoga

As taught by Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga works with prana (breath), asana (posture), mantra (sound), and dyana (meditation). Using centuries old techniques, and through continual practice, Kundalini Yoga students have the opportunity to refine all aspects of yoga training. Yet this precise healing system can be experienced by anyone with very good results. Open your heart, renew your spirit and develop greater strength, flexibility, and endurance for life.

Meditation

We hold one hour, ninety minute, and longer sessions, each with a Kundalini Yoga technique to help you attune to your Self. Meditation classes address both the challenges and rewards of developing a practice, and coaching is offered along the way. Silent and guided meditations are part of every session. Guided meditations, into states of deep relaxation, support healing and elevate consciousness.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga moves dynamically from asana to asana (pose to pose) with constant attention to breath. Focus is on balance, power, fluidity, flexibility and alignment. Vinyasa frees the body of impurities like stiffness and muscle tension, leaving practitioners feeling clear, clean and energized. We hold both beginner and open level classes. Open level Vinyasa is challenging, and appropriate for those with prior experience.
