This is a challenging, slower-paced, all levels class that draws from Forrest yoga, flow yoga, core strength exercises and breath awareness to help students of all levels develop greater strength, flexibility and inner awareness. The class emphasizes alignment basics, breath work, injury healing and prevention. Beginner friendly.
Vigorous flow style yoga taught in a heated room with excellent music, creative sequencing, and a mindful attention to detail. All Levels Flow suits new students (who are injury free) and seasoned practitioners alike, since poses can be modified to fit each student. It's always fine to rest in child's pose if needed. Familiarity with sun salutations is helpful. Each teacher brings a unique flair — and we suggest reading the teacher bio's to get a sense of how a particular class might feel. Beginning students, or those who are returning after an injury or a break from practice, might enjoy starting out with Flow 1/2, Hatha, Mellow, or Deep Flow classes.

Calm the mind and restore the body with this contemplative style of yoga. Yin Yoga helps the body's deep layers of connective tissue begin to unwind through a sequence of passively held postures. Reclined poses help the body deeply relax within a gentle sequence of folds, backbends, and twists. Benefits may include feeling less stressed, relieving tightness in the joints, sleeping better, enhancing focus and feeling more grounded.
Slow Flow class still has the feel of a typical vinyasa class while slowing down the pace of class to focus on depth. Class will start with a warm up; evolve into a steady flow strengthening practice; and end with relaxation.
