Yin & Yang Vinyasa - This unique all-levels class combines the benefits of dynamic, muscular Vinyasa flow with the slow, yielding power of Yin to find ultimate balance between the mind and body. You'll begin with a stimulating Vinyasa flow to increase circulation and lymphatic movement, build strength and release any stress or tension from the day. To balance the warming, yang energy of Vinyasa, we'll conclude with a cooling Yin practice to ground into your body, deepen your breath and relax your mind for restful sleep. Yin is a cooling, patient practice that targets connective tissues by working gently into the edge of postures through long holds between one and ten minutes. You'll leave this practice feeling balanced, relaxed and more deeply connected to your whole self.
These sessions are focused on balancing and understanding life energy (Ki/ Qi and or Chi) through 3 fundamentals- Qigong, Tai Chi or Taiji and Reiki. By connecting with one's energy through Qigong, you will receive an essential component on how to move and interact in nature (Tai Chi); as well as receiving the deeper universal connection in healing with life energy (Reiki). Each class will address 1 concept on the laws of Ki and deepen through one's personal experiences in practice and meditation. Come to class with comfortable clothing and clean, flat shoes if wanting the added support.

Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul.
In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
"In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace your experience. Your mind may accept the words or it may not, but your consciousness will not accept just words."
-Yogi Bhajan, The Aquarian Teacher Training manual, p. 20
This class is all about giving your body a 60 minutes reset/restart. Having the perfect blend of Hatha and Yin postures and long holds. The classes are meant to counterbalance the hard physical work we do on a daily basis. The benefits are both physical and mental.
Physically, this plan will help release tension, increase mobility and relieve pain from overused muscle groups in your hips, legs, back, arms and shoulders.
Mentally, you’ll take a step back from the athletic intensity and everyday stresses of life to reset and unwind, which reduces stress, improves mood and helps sleep.
We will revitalize the body by increasing circulation to the organs and calm the nervous system through breathing exercises. This practice uses long relaxed holds targeting the fascia and tightened connective tissue in groups of muscles we overused.
Hatha Yoga This heart centered hatha yoga class will help you relax and energize the body, mind, and spirit as you begin to release tension. Gradually you can increase flexibility, inner openness, and enjoy the full benefits of yoga. This class is rooted in the Shambhava tradition.
