Hatha Yoga uses the breath (pranayama) to create a link between the body and the mind, build flexibility and strength while minimizing the chance of injury. This well-rounded style balances and opens the body. Familiarity of asanas (poses) is helpful but not necessary. This class will explore surya namaskar (sun salutations) A & B. Hatha Yoga moves a little slower and gives students a chance to really get into a pose. This more nuanced practice will help you learn to still the mind and be present in the moment. Class appropriate for beginner and more practiced students. Props and modifications used when necessary.

Peace & Power Vinyasa Yoga
Great for new students and experienced yogis alike. Each pose is given in three levels so you can work at your own pace, as we flow through the Asanas. We use movement to heat the muscles and stillness in poses to unwind connective tissue. Join us as we explore use of therapy balls for relieving stress and muscle tension.
Restorative yoga is a gentle, calming, therapeutic kind of yoga that uses props to support the body as it eases into relaxation and balance. All levels are welcome including students working with injury, or sensitivity. In restorative yoga, props such as bolsters and blankets are used to fully support the body, allowing it to open slowly and naturally. Concentration is on the breath to restore energy to the body and calm the mind. Class will usually end with a short-guided meditation, and supported Savasana
A great complement to more active yoga practices, sports, crossfit, etc. as well as for those with fascial conditions like fibromyalgia; Yin yoga works with the connective tissues by holding postures with props in a more passive way to allow deep release. A meditative practice, postures are held for three or more minutes, without movement, and in stillness we observe our whole being with detached awareness. While this is not restorative yoga, it is a very restorative practice beneficial to anyone looking for increased flexibility, stamina, joint lubrication, and energy as well as decreased stress and a calming of the mind and body.
Yin, Yang, and Thai Yoga with Tricia
Try something different! In this class we bring together the slow movements and holds of yin yoga, movement and breath of more active or yang yoga and to help deepen the opening in the postures enjoy the benefits of Thai yoga massage. This class is suitable for all levels.
