Class Descriptions

ALIGN AND FLOW

An open-levels, intentional vinyasa flow class with an emphasis on alignment. Taught at room temperature. Beginners are welcome. This series is 75 minutes and emphasizes alignment and functionality achieved through a clarity brought about by attention to body and breath. Students will practice with discernment through compassion and intuition.

ASHTANGA YOGA

The original yoga incorporating vinyasa as a major component of its practice, is a dynamic system of yoga which uses what is known as tristhana; breath, bandha and drishti, to keep the mind focused as you move through the already set sequence of asanas. This special type of yoga is split up into 6 series of postures; primary, second and then 4 advanced sequences. This class will be mainly focusing on the primary series, also known as Yoga Chikitsa, or yoga therapy, meant to align the body physically and build a great heat or agni, which detoxifies the organs, muscles and blood. Its a powerful experience!

AWARENESS THROUGH MOVEMENT®, THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD

This is a gentle movement class. These are movement combinations that are designed to stimulate your brain and to help you learn how to move more fluidly, easily, efficiently, and comfortably. Each of us, as adult humans feel mastery in many of our movements and functions. For instance, walking, standing up, rolling over, sitting at a computer, cooking, or reading. This list can include functions of playing music, dancing, running, and cycling as well as many others. However, how many times have we worked ourselves into a situation where at least one of these things or something not listed here has become a little or even significantly difficult for one or another reasons including pain.

HOLISTIC YOGA

This class offers inspiration from many traditions and include meditation, intention setting, calling in the elements, and directions, pranayama and appropriately challenging asana (physical practice). Classes are very focused but delivered with a sense of humor. The practice is based upon the yogis who come to class. Dianna checks in to see what the students need each time and crafts her session from there.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED

Intermediate/Advanced is your chance to explore some of the more complex asanas, such as arm balances, inversions, and deeper backbends. We will workshop the more advanced poses. The emphasis of the class will always be movement following breath. Expect to come out of class stronger, more flexible, and glowing with a bit of beauty sweat!

KIDS YOGA

Children from 1st through 5th grade will learn how to focus and center themselves with various breathing and visualization techniques. They will also learn self-respect and respect for others with the practice of fun and challenging poses, partner and group poses, and lots of yoga games.

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness, consists of simple yoga techniques that can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter his or her age or physical ability. It is a complete science that includes breath (pranayam), yoga posture (asana), sound, chanting (mantra), and meditation. It is designed to provide you with the experience of your highest consciousness through the raising of your Kundalini. With Kundalini Yoga you can build a healthy body, develop a balanced mind, make contact with your inner wisdom, as well as, open the door so that you can exceed your full potential. It gives you vitality and health that is your birthright. It makes you radiant, peaceful and strong so that you can meet life’s challenges and excel.

MORNING SOUL DANCE & MEDITATION

Soul Dance is a “dance” class for anyone who loves or who longs to move, to inhabit their body in a more conscious, aware way. It’s an invitation into curiosity, into inquiry, into opening to the body’s deep wisdom and innate ability to heal. It can be stress relieving and prayerful; exploratory and joyful; big and small; loud and quiet; fun and surprising; anything your body needs! It utilizes the power of music and our body’s own inclinations towards sensation, pleasure, life and authenticity. It’s difficult to put into words because it is an experience beyond words, best tried by stepping into the movement space. It’s open and welcome to all abilities, beliefs and comfort levels—no prior experience necessary. This morning Soul Dance class will begin in movement, following the impulses of the body, and culminate in a twenty-minute meditation sit. Each person is welcome to meditate in the way that works for them, bringing individual practice to the collective space.

MYTHIC LACED FLOW

This open level physical yoga practice led by Angie Campbell, E-RYT 500, is based on embodying qualities such as courage, compassion, and tenacity from a mythical story told in the first 5 minutes of class. Beginners are welcome. As in any class, please let the instructor know if it is your first yoga experience.

OPEN LEVELS – FORM & FLOW

For those with previous yoga experience, principles of alignment are combined with breath and relaxation techniques to increase strength, flexibility and awareness. Each student’s abilities as well as challenges will be deeply honored, with variations offered to support the different ability levels.

HOUR OF POWER (85°)

This hour long class (taught at 85 degrees) is a dynamic class which consists of 30 minutes of nonstop movement (vinyasa) and includes 15 minutes of focused core work. Take an hour out of your day to quiet your mind and strengthen your body. Hour of Power yoga will get you in & out feeling rejuvenated, awakened, refreshed and ready to face your day. Prior yoga experience is recommended.

POWER VINYASA (85°)

A vigorous athletic flow, this dynamic practice is strengthening, detoxifying and deeply re-energizing to all systems of the body. This class has its basics in Ashtanga vinyasa and allows for a joyful free expression along with accessible postures for those who are less flexible. It is a powerful practice for anyone wishing to challenge the body and free the mind! Classes are taught in a studio heated to approximately 85 degrees.

QOYA DANCE

Qoya is blend of yoga, free form dance, sensual movement and community connection. It’s based on the belief that as women, when we dance, we REMEMBER our essence is Wise, Wild, and Free. We remember to trust our body as our sacred guide, how to embody our soul and live a life aligned with our truth and intuition. There’s no wrong way to do Qoya. You’ll know you’re doing it “right” when it feels good and true in your body. No dance, yoga, or fitness experience necessary. Just wear comfortable clothing, bring a yoga mat, and some water to sip on.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative yoga helps you achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation by calming the central nervous system. Props are used to support the body in order to hold the poses for a longer time. This practice allows you to go deeper into the body, mind and spirit for a deep healing experience.

 STRETCH AND RESTORE

A sixty minute class in a warm room, designed to stretch, de-stress and energize with a calm vigor. Postures will target specific areas including the hamstrings and quads, hips, shoulders and chest. Postures will be held for several minutes each, to encourage relaxation and access to deeper tissue. All levels, great start to the week for the “athlete-yogi” in us all!

YIN/VINYASA

Combination class – the first half of the class is a yin practice taken from the Taoist tradition consisting of passive poses held for a time to balance the subtle energy body and create mindfulness. It is followed by an hour of soft vinyasa flow to balance yin and yang energies.

YOGA & COFFEE

Start your day with some alignment-based Hatha yoga movement, breath, and meditation. There is no better way to begin your day than to focus on the source of your strength and integrity by using yoga poses, breath, and focus to energize you and ease you into your day, life and work.  Then sit for a few minutes and enjoy a relaxing, invigorating cup of coffee, tea, or filtered water.

Open level 1 practice. Beginners are welcome. As in any class, please let the instructor know if is is your first yoga experience.

YOGA BASICS

An introduction to Hatha yoga principles of breath, posture, and philosophy. Safety and effectiveness of alignment will be emphasized.  This class is designed as an introduction to the vinyasa yoga practice. Class is slower paced than an open levels yoga class, and focused on developing clear and safe alignment in foundational poses. Come to learn, play, and maybe even break a sweat in a supportive environment. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes; you just have to be willing to try.

YOGA FOR NEURO HEALTH

Yoga for Neuro Health is a modified class for individuals facing neurological health issues and anyone looking for a slower flow yoga class.  Class will be based on students’ current needs but may include strength and balance work, breath work, meditation, restorative yoga, and longer held stretches.  Students will be encouraged to use props as needed.
