Flow and the Yogic Arts


The first half is a traditional solar/lunar flow, building strength and flexibility. The second half evolves into a restorative series deepening relaxation and self awareness.

    Each Wednesday will have a specific focus:
  • Pranayama focus - Open the practice with energizing breath work and close with relaxing.
  • Moon focus - Twice a month awareness will be on the coming or happening phases of the new or full moon aligning our energies and chakras specific to the phase we are in.
  • Meditation focus - We’ll set an intention then solidify it through mindful reset meditations during the practice.

Solar Flow


Flow between and within poses powered by the creative energies of the sun. Warm up like the rising sun and cool down like a beautiful sunset.

Therapeutic Yoga for the Neck and Shoulders


Led by a certified Yoga Therapist. Perfect for those seeking relief from old impact and progressive injuries, as well as preventative care.

A healing and restorative practice that focuses on soothing the neck and shoulders. Tackles issues such as “computer neck” and frozen shoulder as well as common aches and pains from daily life.

Therapeutic Yoga for the Lower Back and Spine


Led by a certified Yoga Therapist. Perfect for those seeking relief from old impact and progressive injuries, as well as preventative care.

A healing and restorative practice focusing on the lower back and proper spinal alignment. Tackles issues such as slipped disks and sciatica as well as common aches and pains from daily life.

Yoga & Meditation


Strengthen, lengthen, and cleanse via asana (postures) and kriya (cleansing movement). Then, sink into stillness through pranayama (breath work) and yoga nidra (meditation).

Yin Flow


A slow-paced vinyasa flow class that encourages flexibility and strength. Poses are held for longer periods of time, allowing you to stretch your way to health, happiness, and relaxation.

Restorative Yoga


Relax, unwind, and reset. We’ll utilize props like blankets, bolsters, straps, and blocks to support, protect, and open the body. Experience pranayama (breath work), adhara asana (supported poses) and meditation to stimulate and rejuvenate the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing stress to evaporate.

Kundalini Yoga


Previously believed to be too powerful for the general populace, kundalini yoga is an ancient practice from India that has only been taught in public for the last 50 years. The Master who boldly began teaching it openly in the west in 1969, Yogi Bhajan believed that we each have a responsibility to better society through mindfulness and compassion, and he dedicated his life to making his vision of practical spirituality a reality.

Kundalini has a philosophical purpose to awaken your Higher Self - your truest and most complete potential. The sacred and scientific technology uses a dynamic combination of physical movement (asana), pranayama (breath), meditation (dhyana) and relaxation to activate a person’s latent energy and make it kinetic. Awakening this life force energy increases our nervous system’s capacity to both manage stress and more easily enter into states of true relaxation, brings about sustained states of happiness and fulfillment, and balances the endocrine system slowing down the aging process. Kundalini is also one of the most powerful tools for mental health. Using dynamic meditations, the practice can eradicate old mental patterning paving a path for new habits, ideas and inspiration.

**Ultimately there is a lot one can know about Kundalini Yoga and yet, you don’t have to know a single thing in order to try it out. Absolutely no experience is necessary and students can always modify any posture to suit their ability. It is a practice that meets you where you are and takes you where you want to go.
