Hatha is a branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. In this style we focus on alignment while using bodily postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) to work toward a healthy body and a peaceful mind. Poses may be held a little longer to focus on proper alignment.
Level Intermediate, All
A liberating and flowing series of classic Yoga poses, linked one to another by connective movements and breath control. Special emphasis is on Ujjayi Pranayama, an ancient and powerful breathing technique, and on the muscular contractions Uddiyana Bandha (strengthening and cleansing the entire abdomen) and Mulabandha (strengthening and toning the pelvic floor). This practice is a self-care system designed to rejuvenate, strengthen and cleanse the entire body. The lineage of Ashtanga yoga reaches back thousands of years to the Sanskrit yoga sutras of Patanjala.
Go ahead. Take your time. This 90 minute class is designed to help you unravel from the perpetual fast pace of life. Open to all yogis, no matter your experience. Flow mindfully through each breath and pose, releasing stress and tension. Then, settle in for some focused relaxation in an extended savasana pose at the end of each class. It’s the perfect antidote for your busy week.
Great for beginners! This gentle practice targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Passive postures are held for 3-5 minutes so that the muscles can release and connective tissues and joints can open. Deep breathing and relaxation are emphasized. This type of practice complements other active styles of yoga and creates new depth in postures, deeper range of motion, and increased circulation.

This class was designed for the student who is responsive and open to physical touch as a means of guidance and support within their practice. Assists will sometimes be used to help align the body to ensure the full benefit of the asanas, yet predominantly assists will be used to provide alternative ways of experiencing a pose. Touch can be used to bring a softness or a deepening to a posture as well as offer a new focus or highlight a different aspect of an asana. This class will include slightly longer holds in some poses to ensure the time to give adjustments and will also include an extended Savasana. The class may also at times have two instructors who will share the responsibilities of teaching and adjusting.
Assists are optional and students will have a chance to discretely let the instructor know if they would like to receive them.
