Join us in our Yin and Yang style class. In this class you will take the first half hour of your practice in our signature style - Yoga Room Flow, moving through Sun Salutations, and other vinyasa flow style postures.

The second half of class is filled with all of the juicy goodness of deep stretching, hands-on assists and all other things Yin. You'll leave feeling energized and centered. You'll leave fully balanced in mind, body, breath and heart.
Hot Yin can provide energetic, mental and physiological benefits.
Yin Yoga benefits are not purely physical: you also benefit from the stillness this type of practice offers. The opportunity to come to an edge, become still and experience the sensations and changes melting into your body. Another benefit is the energetic stimulation available in Yin Yoga. Whenever an edge is felt, whenever a posture gives us a challenge physically, tissues are being stretched or compressed. This tension creates mechanical, electrical and chemical signals that travel through the body and it can change the quality of the tissues that transmit these signals. In the East, this is called prana or chi, which flows through nadis and meridians.
Amped Up Power & Strength
Yoga Sculpt (HOT)

You may find it hard to believe that all this lounging in luxuriously delicious poses could offer so many health benefits but it does! Aromatherapy is often incorporated please advise the teacher 24 hours ahead of time if you have any sensitivities and we will gladly refrain from introducing any scents into the room. This class will allow you to let go of stress and tension to feel better - breath better - sleep better - do better.

Rebalance, Restore, Refocus
Would you like to move better, enhance other activities and feel better in your body, overall? This class uses The JointYoga Method (muscle release, acupressure, joint release and calming techniques) to help release areas of tension in the body through meditation, gentle yoga movements and lots of hands-on assists from the instructor.
This ultra-nourishing practice is a beautiful blend of slow flow, restorative postures, and guided meditation. It is designed to help reduce stress, melt away tension in the body and mind, and promote better rest. Props are often used to support the postures and gentle adjustments (aka massage) are offered throughout class to assist you in achieving a deep level of relaxation. Free yourself from the pressures of daily life as you are guided into a state of balance and bliss. Option to bring a small blanket for savasana.
In Yin classes you will cultivate mindful awareness of your body, breath, and flow of energy. This is a great class if you have lower back pain and want to address it with slow steady poses. Focus on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. You hold the poses longer to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. Deep Stretch is essential for injury prevention, joint health, and helps reduce common side effects of aging. (If only Ponce De Leon had found this class) It's amazing how a little time spent in stillness on the mat leads to more activity off the mat. That is what makes this class a great compliment to your active life. Since a Yin practice often includes seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system and the longer holds give you the opportunity to find your Self within the pose. Pure Bliss for All Levels!
