Professional and Personalized
All Levels Yoga
Our All Levels Yoga instruction is adapted to each class and is designed to be accessible to a wide range of bodies and needs. In addition to asana practice (physical postures), All Levels Yoga can incorporate pranayama (breathing practices), dhyana (meditation), and other healing and mindfulness modalities. Our All Levels Yoga Instructors each teach a little bit differently from one another, so we recommend taking a few classes with different teachers in order to find instruction that best accommodates you. Feel free to ask us for a teacher recommendation based on your unique needs.
Our Gentle Yoga class is a slower and less vigorous version of our All Levels Yoga class. This class gently and gradually explores flexibility, increases range of motion, and builds strength, both physically and mentally. Meditation and breathing practices regulate the nervous system and promote feelings of calm and connection.
Restorative Yoga is a very gentle, slow practice which aims to deeply relax the body and unwind the mind. Postures are supported with many props like blankets, bolsters, straps, and blocks (which we provide at our studio or you are welcome to bring your own) to create maximum comfort for long periods of passive healing. You may do as few as 4 restorative yoga postures within an hour long class. How are Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga different? While Yin is also a very slow practice, yin postures can involve deeper stretches which may bring about stronger sensations, while restorative postures remain subtle.
Yin Yoga is practiced at a much slower pace than our All Levels Yoga classes and targets deep connective tissues, fascia, ligaments, joints and bones. Whereas you might flow in and out of a pose within a few breaths in an All Levels Yoga class, Yin Yoga invites you to settle into poses and stillness for 3 to 5 minutes and sometimes longer. Yin postures are often supported by props like blocks, blankets, bolsters, and straps, which we provide at our studio, or you are welcome to bring your own. How are Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga different? While Yin and Restorative yoga are both slow practices, yin postures can involve deeper stretches which may bring about stronger sensations, while restorative postures are subtle.
Usually through a guided body relaxation technique, guided meditation or visualization, Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is a deeply relaxing practice meant to induce a state of consciousness in between awake and asleep. Not quite fully awake, not quite fully asleep, experience the healing benefits of yoga nidra both physically and energetically. This hour long practice may also include some gentle movement or breathing techniques in order to guide you into and out of yoga nidra.
