Fit Flow Yoga

Fit flow is a unique combination of yoga, strength and cardio based movements with a full cool down that includes a range of stretches and a traditional Shavasana. You will be guided in a way that challenges you to explore your mental and physical edge while also maintaining the mindful, breath focused and non judgmental essence that comes with a yoga class. This high intensity yoga based class improves agility, flexibility, range of motion and confidence.

Vinyasa Yoga

A fluid yoga asana (posture) practice that connects breath and movement so we can turn the attention inward. This yoga class will include challenging and flowing sequences of movement as well as seated practices to settle the mind and practice dyana (meditation).  Modifications and intensifications are offered and encouraged, all levels are welcome.

Yin Yoga

A slow-paced, but still active, form of yoga that challenges students to sit still and find their edge. This class will consist of a few seated or supine postures, held for 3-5 minutes to loosen the connective tissue such as ligaments, tendons, and fascia. Though yin is a slow, cooling practice, participants should be aware that the long holds and risk of injury make yin a challenging class, both physically and mentally. Students are encouraged to bring their own bolsters, firm pillows, and blankets from home to make their yin experience a more comfortable and enjoyable one.
