SET YOUR INTENTION WELL. Scheduled on (or around) the full moon each month, this class features a combination of chandra namaskaras (lunar salutations), slow flow, hip openers and heart openers. Moving into meditation will help you connect more fully with nature’s cycles and your own internal rhythms. Ruler of water and emotion, the moon is associated with the cooling and feminine energy. The full moon is a time of expansive tides, heightened emotions, and opportunity to deeply tune in and manifest what you want in your life.

Easy Like Sunday Morning 
Linden Tree Photography FORM 127

THIS BEGINNER FRIENDLY CLASS MIXES THE GENTLE, RELAXED FLUID QUALITIES OF A SLOW VINYASA WITH A HINT OF YIN TO EFFECTIVELY STRETCH AND BALANCE THE BODY. Just like the Lionel Richie song, this class is chill, even more chill than a Sunday morning on the couch.  Move into the gently flowing asanas with a perfect  balance of both effort and ease as you move and breathe. This sweet class will give you a hefty dose of deep stretching both in the strengthening poses and with a hint of  seated yin poses. Sweet moves aired with sweet grooves, this class delivers the restoration and reFORM you need. Unlike Sunday morning this class is now offered twice per week. Perfect for beginners, open to all levels and especially great for  athletes who need a DEEP stretch.

Flowing Form

Linden Tree Photography FORM 040

A MORE PLAYFUL AND FLOWING CLASS. This flowing vinyasa practice is all about the connection of the breath and asanas(poses). As we consciously move with our breath the body begins to open more expansively and effectively. The basic foundations and alignment of the pose will be taught with many opportunities to move deeper.  This class will build strength (and burn TONS of calories). This all levels flow class is a good  progression for beginners in that the class may be lighter on the number of vinyasas. You may begin to learn to execute basic arm balance poses such as bakasana (crow) and basic inversions such as tripod headstand but modifications will always be offered. This class may be challenging for the beginner but it’s open to all levels.

Screen shot 2014-08-24 at 7.08.43 PM

Candlelight. Pulsing rhythms. Exploration of opposites. Tap into your inner fire with our signature FIRE Flow class.

Through this 75 minute adventure we’ll build collective momentum while deepening our inner awareness through a motivating and strengthening power vinyasa practice. Working up a sweat we will release limitations of the body and mind as we move and flow in the darkened studio through postures that serve to challenge your limitations. We will end with deep stretching and the yoking of mind and body, preparing the body for a state of deep (well deserved) relaxation.

This unique offering usually sells out, pre-registration is strongly recommended. Once it sells out, the velvet rope goes up, and ain’t nobody getting’ in. Got it? Good.

WORK HARD AND PLAY HARD IN THIS FAST PACED, FUN AND SWEATY CLASS!  This class format will keep you moving and grooving to the beat of the music all while building up a deep sweat and working our core muscle groups (great ass, anyone?). We will use our Jedi-mind tricks that we learned in Use The Force (see above) and our best FORM to work and play. We will increase our heart rate and burn calories as we flow through vinyasas then hold our strengthening poses while our muscles feel the burn. Like the name implies this class ain’t too serious, but we will explore and play with arm balances, inversions, arm balance transitions, deep backbends, and other challenging postures. Bring a friend and come prepared to challenge your mind and your body and have fun while doing it. The last portion of the class is dedicated to DEEP stretching followed by a sweet, long Savasana. Leave your limitations at the door and bring water and a towel to soak up the sweat. At least 3 months of solid yoga practice recommended but not required.
