Yoga Classes Descriptions

I lead many different styles of yoga and all include breath practices and meditation. In private sessions, I tailor the class to your specific needs. Here, they are listed in order of strain or difficulty.

Chair Yoga – While seated in a chair we can activate the entire body through modified stretches and focused attention!

Restorative Yoga – Relaxing, supported practice using bolsters and props to help hold the posture comfortably allowing for a complete relaxation of the entire body.

Yin Yoga – Very Grounded and meditative, holding postures for 3-5 minutes to allow for a deep release through the connective tissues of the joints. Great for stiff joints, off injuries, and meditation

Hatha Yoga – Hatha is really the term for all physical yoga practices or asanas. It is a combination of two Sanskrit words “Ha” or sun and “Tha” or moon. It references the union of the physical body and non-physical mental/spiritual bodies that occurs when practicing “asana” or postures. As a class description it references a practice where we hold the posture for 15-30 seconds and mindfully flow through a sequence of postures.

Alignment Yoga – A static practice where we hold the postures for up to a minute and focus on subtle adjustments to activate the stretch and protect from injury.

Slow Flow Yoga – This is one of my favorite styles to teach! We gently flow through a sequence of postures taking time to explore the stretch in the body before smoothly transitioning into the next posture.

Vinyasa Yoga – As a style of yoga, Vinyasa refers to 1 breath per posture. this is a rigorous practice that will get your heart pumping and sweat pouring!

Power Yoga – As it’s name suggests, Power Yoga is a powerful practice! It is an advanced form of Vinyasa that activate the core muscles connecting postures with jump throughs, arm balances and inversions

SUP Yoga – Combining the practice of yoga with the water element really encourages focus, intent and fun! On a beautiful day what could be better?!
