Cover Flow with Kailey Hull on 2/3!

“Good artists copy, great artists steal.” – Pablo Picasso 

All creativity builds upon something that existed before and every work of art is essentially a derivative work. Your life is your creation and the inspiration has got to come from somewhere! We’ll keep this idea front and center in a practice tuned to a soundtrack of all cover songs. Flow to familiar favorites, reworked into something fresh to help you embrace the process of reinvention, recreation, transformation and transcendence. Put a new lens on the way you see your practice, your life, the world and this moment.

Saturday, February 3rd, 10:00 am – 11:15 am

Ashtanga: Foundations of the First Series – THIS SATURDAY!

Ashtanga: Foundations of the First Series In Ashtanga we explore both the familiar and the unfamiliar. The principal poses we know and love fromVinyasa Flow are mixed with less common postures to create a complete physical practice which opens and purifies the body. Although there are a total of six series’ in Ashtanga Yoga, the First Series is often considered the most difficult, because it is here that we each begin our journey.
This workshop will give you the tools that will enable you to unlock and explore the complete practice of Ashtanga. From the familiar poses of the opening sequence through to the final exercises, this workshop will prepare you for the broad range of yoga postures and transitions which make up the First Series.
In this workshop you will:
  • Learn the traditional Suryanamaskar A & B (Sun Salutations)
  • Understand the Sanskrit chanting and counting
  • Learn how to safely enter and exit Padmasana (Lotus Pose)
  • Explore the pick up, jump back, and jump forward vinyasa sequence
  • Develop techniques for binding, twisting, balancing and forward bending
  • Learn about the Tristhana: posture, bandha and drishti
  • Spend time in the less familiar poses and discover what they are for
  • Have the opportunity to ask individual questions and receive individual attention
  • Develop the tools to begin a personal practice of Ashtanga Yoga
Ashtanga Yoga is accessible to everyone. Come and explore this invigorating and liberating practice in a supportive, relaxed environment. No previous experience of Ashtanga is necessary!
January 20th from noon – 3:00 pm

Wednesday Night Yin is Back starting 9/6 w/Diana Vitantonio!

Wednesday evening Yin is back with Diana Vitantonio starting September 6th at 6:00!

Yearning for some balance on your mat and in your life? Yin yoga is a complementary practice to the more dynamic vinyasa style you’ve grown to love. In yin, poses (mostly seated) are held passively for longer periods of time in order to access and open the deep layers of connective tissue in the body.

Physically, yin restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints. Yin also enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. This practice emphasizes stillness and silence, allowing for a meditative experience that will reduce anxiety, tension and stress. Unlock your body and free your mind!


Deep Detox Flow – EVERY SATURDAY AT 4:30 PM!

Every Saturday afternoon at 4:30 starting 1/6
Detox in the middle of the weekend! This is an all levels Power Vinyasa class with not only extra heat but extra twists for deep detoxification. If you love to sweat and want to take your practice to another level this class is for you!

Ashtanga w/Sam- every Monday from noon-1:45 pm

Every Monday from noon – 1:45 pm

Ashtanga is Vinyasa Yoga in its purest form.  An extensive series of postures, binds and mudras which combine together to create a flowing sequence, Ashtanga energizes and purifies the body while focusing and calming the mind. Meditative, challenging, and often intensely physical, this class links movement and breath to gradually open and expand our human range of motion, and connect us more deeply to our subtle body.
In this class Sam will lead the complete First Series, employing Sanskrit, chanting, and a traditional vinyasa count to assist students in developing a self-practice, which is the ultimate goal of Ashtanga Yoga.  Hands-on assistance, adjustments and modifications are an integral part of this practice, and students of all abilities are welcome to give it a try!
