Class Descriptions: 

 Classes are 60 or 75 minutes

Heated Yoga:  Known as “Hot Yoga” is a class dedicated to heating up the body from the inside out with the breath and movement, as well as the room temperature set around 82′-90′ F, and the humidity level at 55.5%.  Combining the practice of Vinyasa Flow and Hatha yoga, focusing on proper alignment and synchronizing breath with movement. Your organs, muscles, heart, and skin will love you for stepping into one of these popular classes.  Perfect for sweating and detoxing on a winter evening.  Come in out of the cold, or after a fantastic day on the ski hill and enjoy the benefits of Hot Yoga.  Please bring a water bottle, hand towel, and a yoga mat towel to class.

Hot Yoga, “26 poses”  This class will start again in October. This class has a temperature of 102-105′ F, and the humidity level set at 65%.  The practice involves repeating the same 26 poses in set cycles for this 60 minute class.  Poses are designed to “systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to 100% of your body, to each organ and fiber.”  The poses include triangle pose, tree pose, eagle pose, and cobra pose among other common hatha yoga poses.  Be sure to drink plenty of water during the class, bring a water bottle, hand towel, and a yoga mat towel to class.

Heated Vinyasa Flow Yoga:  This class is set at a temperature between 82′-90′ F with a humidity level around 50%.  This class is designed for the flow of movement to be carried out by the keen awareness of the breath.  You will discover the healing art of the breath as we experiment with our postures (asanas), linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa).  Making a nourishing connection of mind, body, and spirit through each inhalation and exhalation. Ending with time for  relaxation, absorbing the work, and resting the mind.

Restorative Yoga:  A restful, calming class including breathing, poses supported with blocks, straps, and yoga blankets.  With dedication to increase body awareness, rest, balance through the Chakras, and mindfulness.  Restorative yoga helps to reduce stress and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit.  This is a perfect beginning yoga class that is also appropriate for those working with injury, limited mobility, pre-and post-natal, and for those who prefer a softer, gentler approach to yoga.  With guidance through imagery and reflection and the beautiful sounds of the singing bowls.

Hummingbird HIIT/Power Yoga/Core Strength:  The method used is in this class is Ashtanga yoga, an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility, and stamina for a complete practice.  This class is designed to strengthen the core, improve balance and posture, increase coordination, gain flexibility, and reduce stress.  Every exercise is performed with attention to breath, proper form, and efficient movement patterns.  The class is dedicated to helping you maintain strength in the lower back, abdominal region, glutes, and hips – all to improve your ability to stabilize your spine.  This core-focused workout includes isometric holds as well as timed repetition, with direction for proper alignment. Ending with a time of relaxation.
Gentle Flow/Restorative:  This class is a slow paced flow focusing on letting go of the day’s hard work.  The class will be both vinyasa and restorative by warming up the body and working through asanas (poses) for the first thirty minutes, followed by restorative poses during the second half of the class.   Come unwind and let go, deepen the breath and relax.  You’ll be bliss-ed out for the rest of the afternoon.  The temperature of the room is heated, with an elevated humidity level perfect for detoxing after a long day.  Again enjoying the beautiful sounds of the singing bowls during this class.

Singing Bowls:  Experience the beauty of the sounds of the Tibetan singing bowls in a sound bath experience during the Restorative classes.  The purpose of the singing bowls is to restore vibratory frequencies of the body, mind, and soul that are out-of-harmony.  The sounds they emit work as a type of energy medicine that has been known to heal pain, depression, and stress disorders.  The healing process works by training the brain waves so as to synchronize with the sounds of the bowl.  In class, you will listen to the sounds, and realize that you feel them just as much as you hear them.  

Anusara Yoga, Heart Opening/Heated Class:  This class is designed to improve posture, energy levels, balance, flexibility, and strength.  It has the intention to help you relax the mind, calm mental fluctuations, open the heart, lift your spirit, boost metabolism, and gain a stronger mind/body connection.  This practice will teach the art of patience through breath control and body alignment while you hold more challenging poses.  The session ends with time to relax, rest in the moment, and enjoy the effort you made for yourself.

Mindful Meditation:  What to expect from the meditation class:
First and foremost we need patience.  It is very important to not have expectations from the class and have the beginners’ mind.  The participants can sit in chairs or on the floor, depending on their personal practice/preference/physical condition.
You can even lie down and prop your body to be comfortable. (There’s
a risk of falling asleep in a supine position though).  Classes will mix guided and silent meditation, tailored each time to the needs of the group and individual. All levels are welcome.
