Easy Pose – Sukhasana

Yes, there is a pose in yoga called “easy pose” but sometimes it is not so easy to find a comfortable seat. You might use blankets or bolsters to make the pose more comfortable. Once you find your “seat” this pose will help calm the mind while also building strength in your back and abdomen.

Our Team of Teachers

Our team of well-trained instructors each offer their own experience, personality and style to our leveled classes.

Tree Pose – Vrksasana

Just as a tree needs roots to establish before it reaches high, maintaining one-legged balance is important for all of us. Tree pose teaches variations that you can practice almost anywhere – maybe even while brushing your teeth, riding the T or doing the dishes.

Types of Classes

Our classes are designed to be clearly described so you can find so what is right for you. Our flow based, vinyasa style classes teach you the poses with alignment and cues movement with breath.With an alignment emphasis, we may also use props such as blocks, straps or blankets to help you achieve the pose safely. If you are uncertain of which class to take, ask us! We also offer a restorative class and in January we will be adding a teen/tween class as well a monthly mindfulness class .

Basic

Basic is for those brand new to yoga as well as those who would like a class at a slower pace.

Level 1

Level 1 is for students who have a basic understanding of yoga and who would like to continue to learn proper technique and alignment. 

Level 2

Level 2 is for students with yoga experience or transitioning from Level 1. This level offers a traditional flow class with more sun salutations, standing poses and building blocks of intricate poses and a “Slow-Flow” class which explores the energy of the pose with longer holds at a more deliberate pace.

Restorative

This gentle class is a moving meditation designed to help slow your body down and initiate a restorative, relaxation response.

Mountain Pose

Mountain Pose- Tadasana

Standing tall, mountain pose is a simple and yet integral standing pose that is both a starting and ending point for many poses. This pose can help remind you to maintain a steady, upright and confident posture, like a mountain, even outside of yoga class.
