Vinyasa Flow All Levels 
A playful and fluid vinyasa class based on thoughtful and creative sequencing to get your heart (and blood) pumping with a playlist that'll keep your toes tapping hours later! Infused with mantras on harmonium, hand mudras, breath pranayamas, and insightful intentions. This class will generally create an arc sequence leading toward a peak posture; carefully lending the appropriate paired asanas to safely guide you along your journey. A perfect balance of challenge and play, this class is open to everyone.

Aerial Hammock Yoga
Take your practice into the air! This is a mat-based aerial hammock class that utilizes the silk hammock as a useful prop for support, stabilization, and accentuation of alignment; as well as a guide toward becoming more fluid and supple. Used during an intelligently sequenced flow style class, the hammock is incorporated to build class structure from use in seated positions, transition to standing postures, and finally to independently floating movements that encourage freedom, trust, and surrender. The class is designed to build strength, balance, and stamina while exploring a harmony of ease using the hammock in key pressure point areas to release tension and stress. The hammock is a great and safe way to learn postures, including balancing and inversions, with help of something to hold onto! Experience the rejuvenating benefits of supported inversions to elongate the spine and reverse blood flow, stimulating the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, and lymphatic systems and, in turn, strengthening the immune system. Each class will end with some anti-gravity restorative postures to treat your body and senses. Enjoy how the use of hammocks can assist you in approaching your practice from an entirely new perspective!
