Seasonal Vinyasa

Seasonal Vinyasa is a style of dynamic Yoga practice which is designed to align you with the changing energies of nature and the seasons. Students can expect to move and sweat while connecting body and breath in a fun and dynamic class that changes its flow each season. Seasonal flow yoga combines breathing (Pranayama) and mental focus to be able to smoothly "flow" from one posture to the next. Within the seasonal yoga calendar, the year is broken down into six separate segments, Spring, early summer, Summer, late summer, Autumn and Winter. Approximately every six weeks our yoga practice will flow from one season to the next allowing each student enough time to become familiar with a flow sequence without the classes becoming repetitive. A seasonal flow yoga class is a great place to start your yoga journey or an excellent opportunity to developer your yoga practice.

 


Gentle Vinyasa Flow

This class is great for those who are looking for a slower paced vinyasa with the aim of a more gentle yoga experience. This class creates an opportunity for students to really connect to their breath through a flow of gentle yoga postures. A Gentle Vinyasa Flow class is just like a regular Vinyasa class but slowed down a bit. This class is perfect for beginners, long days or just for giving yourself a little more space to deepen familiar postures in a more forgiving way. You still need to be prepared to move and flow between postures but expect a more gentle experience.

Jivamukti

Jivamukti yoga is a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice. This Vinyasa-based physical style adheres to five central tenets: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (nonviolence, non-harming), nāda (music), and dhyana (meditation). This open class is welcome to all levels of practitioners and Asana options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Students can expect to move and breathe in a dynamic flow and beginners should be aware that not all postures will be explained in detail.
