Students continue the study and practice of Hatha yoga fundamentals including warm-ups, asanas (the physical postures), breathing and deep relaxation. A sun salutation (postures linked together) is introduced by many teachers. Props may be used to allow greater effectiveness, ease, and stability in your postures.
Classes typically emphasize building strength and endurance in postures, refining alignment, and working with more challenging variations on basic postures. A slow flow (connecting breath to movement) style class, that explores back bends, longer holds and balancing poses.
Low Back & Hips

Restorative Yoga practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind.
In restorative yoga, props are used to support your body so that you can experience purposeful rest. Allowing your body to have deep rest can eliminate fatigue, help with recovery from injuries, ease anxiety and reduce the impact of stress on our physical and mental health.
Yin is a slower paced, more meditative yoga class. Postures are held approximately 3-5 mins to cause moderate stress on connective tissues of the body (tendons, fascia and ligaments). The longer holds create an increase in circulation in the joints and improve flexibility.
This multi-level flow yoga class links breath to movement. The pace can vary, allowing you to build strength, stamina and flexibility using dynamic yoga sequences. The class is best suited for students familiar with yoga postures.
Core muscles help strengthen and stabilize your spine and pelvis. A strong core enhances balance and stability and improves posture. Work towards a balanced core by releasing tight overworked muscles and strengthening weak muscles in this demanding, yet accessible class. You work to your own level, variations will be given throughout the class.
