BASICS – This class is perfect for those who are new to yoga. It will move slowly and provide detailed alignment instruction so new students can learn the fundamentals of a yoga practice & common poses. This class is a great place to “start”. Do not hesitate to speak with the instructor if you have questions! Remember to simply breathe & enjoy! EVERYONE CAN DO YOGA!
Bliss Flow – A vinyasa flow-style class with the unique touch of each instructor. Bliss Flow classes are broken into levels, so read below & find the appropriate level for where you are that day!
Slow Flow (all levels) – Slow Flow: Great for beginners and those with back pain! Flow through twisting, standing, balancing, and weight bearing postures at a steady slow pace. This practice will leave you feeling stretched out, strengthened, and relaxed. Just because it’s slow, doesn’t mean it will be “easy”!
Level 1-2 – Formerly known as our “All Level” class, this class will be fast paced and challenging. It truly is a place where many “levels” of practitioners come together, with modifications available for those who need them and more advanced options for those who can go further. Regardless of where you are in your practice, this class will encourage you to move toward more challenging variations of asanas. Some experience recommended.
Level 2 – This class is meant to challenge the experienced practitioner with advanced asanas. Arm Balances & Inversions can be expected in every class. Students should be efficient in Urdhva Dhanurasana (wheel; upward-facing bow) with the arms straight, Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand) at the wall, and Bakasana (crow) pose. More than anything, students coming to this class must be willing to try anything – attitude is everything!
HOT YOGA – A challenging class to make you sweat, boost detoxification and increase flexibility. Comparable to a Level 2 class, students can expect to encounter more challenging asanas. This class is not suitable for those with high blood pressure and some yoga experience is recommended.
Ashtanga Primary Series – is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). Ashtanga yoga is an in-depth study of the union between mind, body and spirit. Ashtanga yoga is for everybody. There is no such thing as perfection. Our bodies are all different. What makes this yoga really beautiful, is the fact that we go back to being natural, to being ourselves. The Ashtanga Primary Series is the beginning level of this series. Some yoga experience is recommended…(considered a Level 3 class). All the classes we teach come from the Ashtanga System.
Ashtanga Flow – a flow based class based on the principles of the Ashtanga Yoga System. A great way to be introduced to the Ashtanga practice. All levels welcome!
Yoga Therapy – Align your body, heart, and mind with the power of nature and celebrate the joy of healing. Every cell in the body is programmed for vitality and bliss. Through the precise alignment principles and life-affirming philosophy of Anusara Yoga®, we will learn how to transform pain and limitation into an experience of freedom and strength. Open to those with chronic issues as well as seasoned practitioners who wish to deepen their own understanding of the body’s matrix. Bring an open heart and a playful mind.
Restorative / Slow Flow – This class will be a nice slow flow coupled with several restorative poses designed to bring a sense of well-being to the body. This class is suitable for those with injuries or just want a gentle moving class.
Pilates Mat Class – Pilates is system of movement designed by Joseph H. Pilates (1880-1967) to increase strength, flexibility, stamina, and concentration. This class will integrate the six Pilates principles (breath, control, concentration, centering, precision and flow) to create a balance of body and mind and exert conscious control over our movements and muscles. Pilates will enhance all of your regular activities through functional strength training and dynamic stretching. Our Pilates practice will use our own body as resistance to stengthen and lengthen specific muscle groups, allowing our bodies to perform better in their most natural state: in motion!
Yoga Motion – Incorporating the fluidity of modern dance techniques with yoga asana, this class is perfect for those who enjoy to move. Yoga Motion aligns the breath with movement as you rediscover fundamental movement pathways in transitioning from one pose to the next creating efficient movement patterns applicable in daily life. This class unifies the body through aspects of somatics, dance, asana and yoga principles. NO dance experience necessary.
Kids Yoga (ages 5+) – A good way for kids to relax after school and be themselves as they tune into their breath and are encouraged to discover a deeper body awareness, self-exploration, confidence, and respect for the self and others. We will work on emotional and physical balance, flexibility, strength, coordination, and inner peace through flow sequences, partner poses, games, and relaxation techniques.
Prenatal – Make time just for you and your baby during this special time. No experience needed but you must have doctor approval.
Baby Bliss (all ages) – Formally called “Mommy & Me” this wonderful class is with an adult to have fun with yoga and their child partner style! If you don’t have a baby, you can always borrow one!
Private Lessons – Your yoga practice can greatly improve by doing this a few times a year. During a regular class, the instructor cannot always work individually with a student, so the private session is an opportunity to pick apart your practice and or a great place for a beginner to start. Your regular practice will never be the same! This is available for up to two students at a time.
In-Class Private Lessons – A unique approach to receiving a private class. It is provided while you take any open class of your choice. Jivamukti Yoga is the sole creator of this & it is practiced regularly at the School in NYC. With the verbal instruction and sequencing lead by the scheduled class teacher, the additional teacher will be giving complete and special attention to you in all of the asana’s adjustments, receiving massage, quiet adjustment instruction, and a full relaxation experience with healing oils & massage. The teacher will never leave your mat, providing support and skillful adjustments, enhancing every pose. The student leaves with an in-depth understanding of new alignment improvements and a crucial metamorphosis of the physical and energetic bodies. This brakes up habits that we may unknowingly develop within our practice… After class, guided insights are given, as well as time for questions. “In Class Privates” are described by Sting as, “a state of the art experience.” Try one or give it as a gift!
Private Small Group Classes – Private classes for up to 5 people with the instructor of your choice. Perfect for an introduction to yoga or for bonding with friends, family or colleagues. $150 for 5 people for a 75 minute class, $15 per head for more than 5.
