Class Descriptions

We offer an array of classes centered around one theme: alignment of body and mind. The synthesis of strength, core stability, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, balance, optimal nutritional status, and mental awareness creates wellness. 

We hold more than 30 classes a week including variations of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Iyengar, Pilates, Barre, TRX, and HIIT. We also offer many dynamic fusion classes that mix yoga, Pilates, barre, TRX, strength training, and HIIT cardio.

Many of our classes use our “great wall.” The wall allows for use of a wide variety of equipment and props including: pelvic slings, spinal traction belts, TRX suspension trainers, TRX rip trainers, ballet barres and Pilates bands that can be used for tower and reformer style workouts. Many of our classes are capped between 5 and 13 students, allowing us to provide a unique level of personalization.

YOGA FLOW + ALIGNMENT

In this all levels Vinyasa flow class each pose is broken down and taught in detail, focusing on alignment. You will build confidence in your practice and will learn to move in and out of postures with strength and stability. This class is great for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. 

 

YOGA FLOW & RESTORE

The first half of class will be geared towards creating heat in the body, integrating the fundamentals of yoga through mindful sequencing linking breath and movement. Clear alignment cues are offered to assist students to cultivate clarity and integrity in the body. The last half will transition towards a sequence of longer held, supportive and restorative postures. Yoga props such as blankets, bolsters, and straps may be used for safe practice allowing the body to receive each position comfortably. 

 

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative yoga often gets pushed to the side by more physically intense practices. Yet, restorative yoga produces important internal biochemical reactions that can be just as significant as the more external physical changes produced by other practices. Come refuel by experiencing the benefits of restorative yoga in this relaxing session. 


Yoga Wall Speciality Classes

ALIGNED YOGA

In this alignment based yoga class you will use a mix of Hatha and Iyengar techniques to improve kinesthetic awareness and body intelligence by incorporating props and our yoga wall. You will use the yoga wall for support and feedback to help work toward developing optimal range of motion, core coordination, balance, and isometric strength. Foam rollers and small balls may be used to enhance myofascial health. This class is rooted in the principle that there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all alignment. You will leave this class feeling relaxed, taller and more fluid. 


Pilates Classes

Pilates is a physical fitness technique developed by Joseph Pilates as a science of controlled movement. When practiced consistently Pilates improves flexibility, strength, endurance and control of the body. Because Pilates was created for rehabilitative uses, emphasis is on alignment, core stability, body awareness and breath.

Align Core is a total body and mind workout with an emphasis on the power center, or core and abdominal muscles. This is an expansion of classic Pilates mat exercises in a low impact environment to reduce stress on the joints. The class will work to build abdominal strength, lengthen and tone muscles, and find a rejuvenating breath system. Classes at times will include the use of props to broaden range of motion, up the ante of challenge/load, facilitate variation and modification of specific exercises, and overall to provide an alternative route of approach to core principle based exercises. These props include foam rollers, blocks, weighted balls, unweighted balls, TheraBands, and blankets/sliding surfaces.
