Sunrise Vinyasa

Our class begins with breathwork (pranayama) to tune into our rhythms and settle the mind.  We then flow through a dynamic sequence to naturally heat the body, we use that heat to open, stretch, tone and align the body giving careful consideration to the remedial benefits of the poses chosen through each sequence.  Our classes are fluid, flowing and playful with a focus on alignment and technique.  To reap the benefits of the practice, the class ends in conscious relaxation – savasana.

Sunrise Vinyasa energizes and awakens the body & mind in preparation for the day ahead.

Core Essentials

This class provides the foundation to build a safe and solid practice, with a step by step introduction of the poses, building your practice from the ground up. It is perfect for beginners and for the more experienced who are seeking to refine their poses to gain the maximum remedial benefits. The Core Essential Class Series are a step by step introduction into Yoga building your practice from the ground up. Classes include both static and flowing poses, linking movement with the breath.  You will definitely leave the class feeling lighter and calmer and more open.

Teen Yoga 2

Tween/Teen Yoga

Teenagers and those on their way, way earlier than in my generation, are growing up in a complex world which is moving at an ever-increasing pace.  Social media, virtual friendships, cyberbullying, suicide, self-harm, academic pressure, stressful schedules, insecurity about their changing bodies and the enormous pressure to fit in are just some of the stressors for tweens/teens growing up today.

This class is designed to calm, nurture and provide physical movement in a fun and musical environment.  It will help build focus, provide tools for coping with stress, to self-regulate emotions and counteract the physical disadvantages of being hunched over books and devices.

Calm & Connect

This is a restorative style class integrated with Yin & Flow Yoga designed to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative and yin style poses are deep passive stretches, twists, seated forward folds and gentle backbends all supported by props.  These classes offer a welcome response to the frenetic pace of life and help to prepare the mind, nervous system and body for deep relaxation, repair and renew.
